Ransome Sprite


I've just found one of these in my late mother's shed.

Is it worth restoring?

Thank you

Really depends on what you want from it, its not going to gain any significant value by restoration. Also depends on present condition, would it run with just a thorough clean & service,rather than a full rebuild?

The model I assume is the petrol roller one, 34cc Villiers engine & 14" cut introduced 1950's & ceased production in 1964.

Good luck

Thanks Clive.

I'd like to restore it because mum has kept it all these years & it'd just be nice to hear it running!

It doesn't particularly have a value then?
