Thanks for the offer but I’ll stick with the real thing.
I know what you mean about the ‘painting’ though, I’ve seen quit a few Dursley’s, in the UK, that have been repainted or sprayed. No consideration is given to the moving parts!

You sure? I feel like this is a very generous offer -- most people would want to charge extra to swap a shiny new Listeroid for a 40+ year-old worn-out lump!  ;-)

Seriously though, I've never seen a Genuine Lister. I'd like to see one some time just to see what the differences are.....

Cheers!

I've cast in metal in greensand, but I see it can be done in greengravel, as well.

I imagine it's the same under the skin of my new Metro 6/1.

Not sure I want to look.

You never want to look under the paint of an Indian engine. It will only upset you. I striped one down the flywheel looked like a mine field that had been exploded. DD
