The Mamod TE1A was the first rolling model I got. I bought it of the UK ebay for 43 GBP. The engine was in quite good condition when I got it, it only was very dirty.
There are only two things I have to fix, the flywheel moves freely over the crankshaft, I'll have to glue it on, or give tin foil a try. The engine doesn't ride yet, because the driving band is to tight, I'll have to get a spare for that.
The engine is missing some chips of paint, like you can see on the picture below.
I'll probably leave it that way, because it's no big deal. Besides, where would you find green heat resistant paint?
One more thing I'll have to do is get a new steering rod, someone seems to have done something wrong with this one:
