The moment of truth has arrived, the repairs are done and the new pink slip has been issued. And although our work vehicle would be very useful in the lead up to the federal election, market stalls for environmental education and to report the news budget and lifestyle concerns mean we have decided to go the bicycle unless a white knight turns up with $700 for the on road costs (insurance and govt charges).
Here are the details for sale of the van:
For sale $1,100 ONO, Toyota Liteace 1990
Rego expired 4th July 07, see new pink slip, 2 seater, 4 cylinder, great fuel economy, manual, 5 speed. Very handy space. Goes well. Heavy duty battery, radio cassette, good tread + 3 spare tyres. Steering lock. New L/R tie rod, rack ends. Have to sell - job/bicycle change.

Postscript #1 19th July 07 - our new bike trailer, original design. Not quite a Hills Hoist but we still feel quite proud. It's all about the attachment method to the rear of the bike that counts.
Patent pending (not): Take 2 old bikes, 2 x 20 cm bolts, power drill, 4 big U bolts, 3 little U bolts, a light metal pole, 3 lengths of wood, 2 bright coloured bread crates. And 4 days of stuffing around trial and error in a shed.
Postscript #2 25th July 2007
Well it looks like some guardian angels have chipped in to keep us mobile in the months up to the federal election so will be registering the van after all:
Carol Seckers -$50
Jill Redoood - $200
Bob Walshe - $500
Terry Cutcliffe- $300 in return for 2 days building work for NAIDOC day) at the Addison Rd Gallery - see the new outdoor veranda there.
Assuming cheques all clear which we do it's still lots of cycling but extra capacity with the van also, like this recent electioneering mission with stickers in the seat of Wentworth 1st August 2007
