I have a Victa 8-30 series 9, s/nG199A Ride -on un restored with all original stickers and paint, it has surface rust, its a 3 speed forward and 1 reverse, i'll upload photo's from my phone.
I think it would make a good restoration project for someone with the time to spend on it.

This is an intriguing thing.
Yes, it would make a great resto project.

Folks are not recording early Victa ride-ons in any quantity.
Any info or images would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

Har Har! It looked like it might have said Cyberjack's Machinery there for a second (second photo).
The only thing Victa would have contributed was the transfers with the Victa name.
Poor thing looks like it could have a colony of redbacks in it.


Ahh, if only victa had kept producing the thumblatch catcher series, they would be in better shape today!

I guess it isn't working by the height of the grass around it

I hope you can find a sandblast cabinet big enough.
