Hi  Matra-colleges.

I Have this lovely old Blue Bagheera 1 S. It is close to perfect... BUT..my Vinyl-sunroof have seen better days. Where do I get a new one?. At the int. meeting in Northern Germany last year, I talked to the fellow with the two Galvanized Bagheeras. He told that he got a brand new from HB-Pieces. I have tried to contact them, without any respond... Can anybody Help me? Huh

And to those who joined Matra Club Denmarks Summermeeting, last Weekend...thank you for a very nice weekend.

Regards

Hi Lars,

The fellow with 2 galvanized bags. Do you mean another Lars ?
Last time I visited HB, I saw a very limited number of vinyl roofs...
I believe less than 5. They might be gone by now.

Another possibility would be UK, to find left overs from the OEM.

Hi Spyros.

I cant remember if his name was Lars. Two Bagheera 2, one silver and the other a kind of light blue or green, with tan Leather interieur.
The UK-dealer OEM....who is that? and does he have a mail-address?

Is your yellow "S" still running? And how about the "Bagheera-register"? Is it possible to go in to see how many, and who is registered? I would still very much like to know how many Bagheera 1"S" there has been produced.

Lars.

Hi Lars,

Following the description of the Bagheera, yes, that's Lars Wink

Just to confirm


Taken this summer before we went on the track.
I was not in shape to drive this time due to some illness ( I had lost any balance and I believe this is needed), so this left me a lot of time to take pictures



I was passenger in another Serie 1 S when I took this picture.

If you are wondering where it was, the following picture should help you



UK Oem dealer, I just forgot the well known name  ( maybee tomorrow) but it closed down and sometimes some parts are still found there but ... not easy

My Bagheera S Yellow has had a rear restoration ( see our Bagheera-café ( sorry it's still only french speaking) and on Saturday we just had a night rally with it ( Bagheera are perfect cars for this exercise)

The published inventorium is in free access.
See here http://www.matra-bagheera.com/Inventaire/bagstdb.xls
This file is 1 year old and today, I have exactly 40 S Serie 1 known there (some known as destroyed, most of them in restoration but an amazingly high number.

We have put somewhere on the Bagheera-café the right number of each types produced.

I've also this on the road now...  Grin



Wheels soon changed for other ones

I realise that this is an old posting but in case you haven't resolved your sunroof problem:

When I had my Bagheera in the 80s the sunroof was aready starting to split where the folding part starts.  I am pretty sure the original manufacturer has gone out of business even then. 

I had it re-covered by a firm who specialised in convertible/cabriolet roofs.  They did a decent job but despite asking for the threads on the fixings to be repaired (three of the four or five bolts had snapped) I had to carefully remove the new cover and replace the broken fixings myself.

There is a guy in London who specialises in this type of sunroof. I haven't used him myself but he seems to have a good reputation.
