Re: Bryans "peep show" for sale on ebay

This one seems to have been on and off eBay for literally years now. No takers it seems.

Re: Essex Football & Ahrens Great Polo Game identified

Yes indeed. I know that’s the buyers intention. Really sorry not to be having a go myself as it would be wonderful to achieve. Sadly time is lacking at the moment and I’d rather someone else have some success that be stuck at the back of my shed for however long. I’m not sure the buyer is in this fo...

Re: Essex Football & Ahrens Great Polo Game identified

Sorry - I’d mentioned it somewhere else and got an ‘offer I couldn’t refuse’ from a different source…..

Re: Essex Football & Ahrens Great Polo Game identified

Not sure if this is allowed so if not please delete … I’ve decided that sadly a lack of time is going to prevent me doing this once justice. With some regret I’ve decided to let someone else have a shot at breathing life into this lovely thing. I’ve therefore just popped it on eBay. Wanted to let yo...

Re: Essex Football & Ahrens Great Polo Game identified

Thanks for the tip. I’ll give it a shot. Yes I just got the C5 a couple of weeks ago. All running now on Lithium technology which should give a bit more range than the 12 miles of the original lead acid battery. Hoping for more like 30 on this battery. Just waiting for some nice weather so I can try...

Re: Essex Football & Ahrens Great Polo Game identified

Sadly they wouldn’t let me have the Polo top as the sister likes horses! Sad as I suspect it will just sit rotting. So what solvent would be best to soak this in? Anyone know what the alloy is? Is it pot metal or something nicer? Not sure how easy it’s going to be to free things up without breaking ...

Re: Essex Football & Ahrens Great Polo Game identified

Ok so I may have just transported a heap of rust halfway across the country… Couldn’t get the ponies but got the football. The casing is well beyond repair, but I have all the ‘hole surrounds’ etc. The rest of the case is going to the tip sadly. The mech is in a pretty bad way too and well rusted an...

Re: BMCo 7 cup

Thanks - there are some small, filled holes on the top suggesting a top flash was fitted originally or at some point.

Re: Help required!

Thanks for the help guys. Nice to see what it should look like - I think! If I manage to strike a deal I'll post some more pics and I'm sure, seeking more advice.

Essex Football & Ahrens Great Polo Game identified

I’m trying to ID these two football/polo games. They are in a right state and not been viewed in person but I'm tempted to take a look. It looks like originally the players kicked individually maybe? Could look really pretty if sorted but doesn’t anyone know in info about the game? Maker? Prob is I ...
