Exactly the same colour has my dads 6b - same year too, I think. Thankfully his is in good nick and under a car port with the occasional bit of muck on the bonnet :). Anyone know how many 6bs were produced in that two tone grey/silver?. I've heard people say it's an unusual Scimitar colour.

Hey Darryl - a front wheel has been fitted since that Aug 2014 photo!

but sadly, the air in the rear tyre has escaped.

True. I hadn't spotted the front wheel. :) Progress is progress. ;)

A rather dilapidated 6. Apparently been there for a long time.

Your link doesn't seem to work (is it in a closed group?), but could it be the Se6b (that belongs to a forum member) which seems to appear fairly regularly on here?

That's the one, Roger.

Apologies. Didn't realise it had been mentioned before.
