My Ben Hur

Post by Johan WC52 »

I traded a blank fire Garand and some Swedish pesos for this ex-Norwegian Ben Hur.

Sand blasted, new wood, new canvas, turn signals, everything is there. Used but not abused!

I've been looking for a Ben Hur three years now, just the cost for transportation mainland Europe to Sweden held me off.
This meant a trip to Stockholm and back only.

Checking all internet stores and Epay shows s distinct lack of parts for the 1 ton. I'm happy with this buy!
