Hi Andy,

I've been a bit quiet so far but the two photos above are quite relevant to this thread because this is the "Bagheera on ebay", now sitting on my driveway. 

I'll start a thread and put up more photographs fairly soon.  I need to resize them to something more board-friendly.   These will give a better impresssion of it's overall condition in some of the usual areas. 

It still has the plate with the chassis number (my other Baggy doesn't) and a think some people such as Roy G. and Spyros might want that information for their records.

I hope so ..  Grin

Well done!
Thank you.  I tried to resist bidding but temptation got the better of me.

Another one saved.
Well, yes, I promise not to do bad things to it but with me at the helm who knows when it might next have a fresh MOT!  

I'll put a thread up later today just in case anyone is interested in looking at grotty bits of an old Bagheera ..

After a long delay I am buying the rest of the Bagheera Jubille this week. I have already had the windscreen.

I rather like the idea of using the electronic ignition in the competition Bagheera whose engine ignition seems unhappy over 4,500RPM.

I am hoping also that the gearbox and differential maybe good for spares.

Any views on the Matra electronic ignition system? I have always used the "Lumenition" version on our Bagheeras and have been very satisfied.

Hi Andy
I used the system on my Simca Abarth race car with no problems at all.
