Both look to be nice examples on the button.  An injected Flavia is a rare beast indeed.

Aprilia looks to have an SU carb on an elbow.  Talk of the 12v conversion not being VSCC legal implies an alternator but I couldn't spot it.

Why am I always suspicious when I see photos of cars for sale which omit under bonnet photos? The Flavia is looks lovely but.........

I used to own an MGC with registration WGU 75F - amazing to look at how much modern that Flavia is and only 5 numbers separation on the Reg!

surely they have the wrong value estimate and vehicle definition for the Aprilia.

Never seen an Aprilia with this SU mod but I did this for a ford 100e sidevalve and got about 20% increase in power compared to the Zenith...

I have never seen that mod either, but the VSCC would probably not like it being such a modern SU. I'll bet it improves the performance though. I'll also bet it fetches rather more than the estimate!

And there's a rather nice looking van behind it in one of the photos!
