That is very interesting about the history of Westwood and Dynamark, Wristpin. I always wondered why they looked so similar. :)

 

Thanks Ranger! The diesel ones seem very interesting, but I've never driven or even seen one in person, sounds like they don't use much fuel!

I did a little tidying up on the Westwood today, cleaned most of the engine and painted a few bits including some high-temp paint on the exhaust :) When I get a chance I have a nice new switch for the lights, which I'll wire up.

And I need a new seat, but I'm holding out for a seat exactly the same as the current one and they seem quite rare in good condition :lol:

Had a day off work so I got some tidying done in the garage, there's still a way to go but slowly but surely getting there :)

I'd love to restore this 1963 Moulton Deluxue some day, I've had it since I was about 10 :lol:

Tidy looking workshop there and I notice you have created space for your next garden tractor.......

 

I would certainly love to expand the collection, especially with an original condition Westwood Lawnbug... :)

I think someone on this forum got a Westwood Lawnbug. I think it is somewhere in the South East.

Type in Lawnbug in search top right box on the forum and it should pop up.

You're right, he's got a really nice one. Can't be too many left in that condition now, I'm pleased someone on this forum owns one :)

Yeah same here, I used to have a Lawnbug about 3 years ago until I gave it away!!! Unfortunately back then I wasnt clued up with Westwood mowers. It had white rims original Westwood orange paint and weirdly enough the engine was painted white! I tried to get it running thinking it was a fuel problem but I think again it was the points and condenser. I gave it to a young lad who says he's going to do it up. But that's what they all say. If I could I would get that Lawnbug back but it would probably be near on impossible and to add to the chaos at the minute I'm looking for a really early Westwood W8/W11 Gazelle, that has all the early early features. My 78 has a few but has not got the straight foot rests or the gearstick in the middle and many more features like that.

Yeah, finding an original Lawnbug is very hard these days. I think the original engines were Tecumsehs and some of them would have been white. One day I will get one though! :lol: 

Well good luck with the search for a very early Westwood Gazelle, they are certainly out there, I see them come up on auction sites once in a while. I even saw a super rare 10 horsepower one once, I will have to see if I saved a picture of it on my old computer...

Also if you haven't seen it already, this restoration of a Westwood Lawnbug is pretty interesting if you get a chance to watch it:

Yeah, I have watched his videos. They are very well done. I wish he had a go on a really early Westwood. That would be interesting. Even though he had done a good job on the Westwood Bug, the only thing I would change would be I would keep the original Tecumseh engine in it.
