Project for sale - NOW SOLD

Post by DanBoy » Sun, 08 May 2011, 7:55 pm

It is with regret that I have put my Portafold up for sale on ebay. It is a 1968 model and has had plenty of work done as seen on this forum. I have put the starting price on at £200 with no reserve. I have been suffering with angina for some time now and despite having two stents fitted last month I still have some narrowed arteries. The physical side of completing the porty is just becoming too much for me and I will have to let someone healthier complete the work. If you are interested in taking on this project ring me on xxxxx xxxxxx or make a bid on ebay.
Thanks

Sorry to hear that Dan :thumbdown: Gotta put your health first though.

I've followed your threads with quite some interest and the work you've done looks impressive. Have you got a figure in mind, and how soon would you need it moved (as you're quite a distance from me and I'm flat out with work at the moment).

Cheers
Scott

Haven't got a price in mind. :?: I suppose as much as possible really. I'm not in too much of a rush to get rid of it but, having said that, I am still toying with the idea of replacing it with one 'ready to go' so I won't have to do all the work. I suppose if my works would let me retire (which they wont) and I had a decent workshop I would carry on pottering with this one but it's on a shared drive and having to keep moving it to open it, as and when I get the time, takes its toll. By the time I've got it open I'm too exhausted to do any work on it. :oops:

Portafold now sold. Amazingly, it's gone back to Denbigh in Wales which is where I bought it from in the first place.
