Hi all, we are looking to buy a cartie, it doesn't have to be the fastest or the best looking. We are taking part in a charity event in south west wales, so we need something to start us off and we could possibly modify. So if you know anyone selling pleas contact Mel on 07427045656 ( we will travel to collect ) thank you

As well as the IGSA 2011 spec' (linked to above by team-art), there is;* Worlaby Downhill spec' at https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=e....YUJsUGVvd0Nkdlk (which appears to be based on the SCA's gravity sidecar specification), and the Belchford spec' * Belchford spec http://dalbysoapbox.webs.com/G%20Bike%20Build%20regs.jpg* Universal Code http://www.theuniversalcode.com/ (I don't think this one is widely used)

Border Reivers do indeed do a great job at Border Bogies and their continued enthusiasm and commitment to the race is much appreciated, but credit is due to a different group for the towing at Cairngorm, which was done by Portal Rover and the Highland 4x4 Club.

After some delay we can now confirm that BB2014 will be going ahead on Saturday 24th May as originally planned.For the past three years the Reivers 4X4 Club have provided the towing and additional backup for BB and they will now take over the organising of the event in its entirety.The outgoing committee would like to thank everybody for the wonderful patronage and help that Border Bogie has enjoyed over the past five years. Hopefully Reivers 4X4 will enjoy the same level of support which in turn will enable them to continue with the event and build on the previous success of the Border Bogie Challenge. Web Site borderbogie.co.uk will be updated and Entries will now open on the 1st February.Cheers(Sorry, we've no idea where you can get a new fitted kitchen.)
