Re: Hi from N. Ireland

We have a section of the forum Resources which would be enriched by a copy of the sales material for your Swinger.
If at some point you could photocopy it and post it there, we'd all be grateful.

Cheers

I've seen you on FB recently.

Your Swinger is a blast from the past! I've not seen one for over 50 years.
