Sadly no longer A Bambi Owner


« on: December 15, 2010, 09:21:00 PM »

I have a suzuki CARRY pick up ( i know you are all jearing now !!! ) as well as my trusty Bambi and the hand book says its wheels are 134.00 B

I guess that's 13" diameter with studs of 4" radius, but what does the B stand for.

Any idea what wheels will fit this?

Picture of Donk (short for donkey) when i first picked him up and before he was molested.

I have since fitted side compartments like on a bambi and 4 mounting brackets on the flatbed to allow a Luton pod with a rear roller shutter to be used for my work & a Romahome demountable camping pod to be used at week ends.    Pictures to follow.

A friend suggested i call Dont Thunderbird 2 !

This (MIGHT) replace my beloved Bambi (dont want to say it out loud in case Reggie hears me.        Am i the only one to name my vehicles?

I did consider Hireing the Bambi out (there is a company called Bambi Hire who want an absolute firtune) but dont know how many people might be interested?

I agree Chop, but all said, it's simply a modern version. What a useful truck though eh? You certainly can't adapt the van like Donks does!!

I think I should send a free, smallish, Thunderbirds sticker!!!!???

And yes, I call mine Sooty, Sooty Bus....I know, I know, Sooty had a Honda and it was a van, but Sooty Bus is less of a mouthful!!

Great Picture, Great Truck!!

I love the Rascal, having had a Van (called ronnie) about 10 year ago and the Bambi (hence the name Reggie)for the last two, but being practical a newer van is the way forward for me, with more time driving it and less time under it.

20 years down the line, these newer models will have their own followers.!

Still back to my question 13 100 B        = 13" Diameter, 100mm radius on the studs and  B  ?

If i WAS going to paint it Titch, i suppose it should be Green.   F.A.B  Virgil

Because of all the electrical gizmos  on the Carry to reduce the emissions which will eventually become unavailable making M.o.t. time a major issue I dont believe they will have the longevity of the Rascarry.
The basic simplicity of the Rascarry gives it its charm.
Without a computer to plug the Carry into, fault finding on them is very difficult/impossible.
I made a decision some years ago not to get involved with them.

P.s. I think 100 relates to tyre width.

The book also says the wheels are 13 100 B

What gizmo's are likly to buggeer up the MOT's in the future and is it worth aquiring spares now !

Agree there Dell. My missus, after 3 Rascals had to sellout and get a Carry. Although in a few  ways its better in general its a hideous machine - loads of pointless electrical and emissions crap, gay power steering (why? on such a small thing) and horribly ugly. Much harder to work on too with access far worse than a Rascal. Parts prices and availabilty will make it uneconomically repairable sooner than a Rascal would.

(Although I have to say it was a bargain and has been totally reliable. ... And much better on fuel than a Rascal........And lack of wheel boxes ease loading and unloading big stuff......And dead handy storage place under rear floor.....And starts far better than my Rascal in the cold.......And has a better heater.......and better lights..........And great to drive.........)

I did say you would all Jeer ! ! !

The reason i went for it was that although its a 53 plate, it had been a groundsman's truck and only done 7k mostly off of public roads and still on the original factory fitted tyres. 

The tyres still have loads of tred but due to their age and the hardness of the rubber they are cracking along the line of the grooves in the tread around the tyre.

thats why i am considereing fitting alloys,  as i will have to change the tyres.

Does the B refer to the Bead type?

You get different beads on tyres for tubed and tubeless. I also know that trailer tyres come with different beads for the same size wheel.

Try asking your local tyre factor.
