I was thinking more in the line of spares.

Spares is a non issue in the USA
You can get every single bit on that bike here for very reasonable prices
I am thinking of buying one next year over here if the borders open and I happen to come back again
Would be a very cool runabout
If you need spares you just need a friend on a working visa in the states that can bring you everything

As jy terugkom kan jy hom baie maklik in 'n tas (of twee) inpak en terugbring as check-in luggage.

Dankie vir daardie gedagte, ek kan sowaar!!

If there is anyone needing Postie parts & Spares, there is a collector in KNYSNA Industrial area, who has a LOT of Postie stuff; he may or may not sell certain bits, but I will try and post a pic on Monday from my p.c. -

……I was sniffing around KNYSNA and Goerge for Petronalia recently, and whilst looking over a high wall at an interesting WOOD WORKING w/shop IN CASE they had any old signage, etc, through a window I could see10-odd Postie bodies / frames, and went back 3 times until I found the owner…!

His side hobby, he started collecting a few years back, and never got the time to start putting them together, and has plenty of those beautiful Chromed rear racks, tanks, the lot.

Here is a nice video on the restoration of the said c90.Nice to watch and listen without the Mercans babbling on and making a noise.

He could have put a little more effort in on the frame.


This was kinda therapeutic to watch.
