Chainrings have teeth! I’m not sure how this happened, but some things mark you as an office working commuter.

Van for Sale
July 7th, 2011

We’re selling our van. It’s a medium wheel base 2006 Renualt Master with a semi high roof. We bought it a year ago for going to and from France and since then have spent quite a bit on parts including two new rear tyres (Michelin Agilis), new near side wing mirror, rear discs and pads and all the engine bay fuel pipes replaced. It was serviced in April 2011, is taxed to September 2011 and MOT’d until mid April 2012.

It’s in rather fabulous condition in Albi Blue paint with no major scratches or dents. It’s 2.5l turbo diesel engine is on 97,500 miles now and we bought it at 91,000. Full Service history with Renault for major services, including the timing/cambelt being done at 72,000. ABS, central locking, CD player, ply lining, anchor points and half a dozen ratchet straps included. Good spare wheel in the back.

We spent two and half months looking for this van so we know there’s some proper rubbish out there, this one, as my mate Neil might say, is mint. We are the second owners, prior to that it was owned by a Glossop based firm.

£4200 ono.
