    Dear Sir,
    many years ago as a teenager I had a DKR Defiant as pictured. Now retired I have a Vespa but hanker for the DKR. Do you have a link to wherever I might be able to advertise to purchase one to bring to Australia. Any condition.
    I have been on Bonham’s email list for three years for no result.
    Hoping you can advise,
    John Couzens

    • John,
      This is definately a rare machine now. They do not come on the open market usually although a 1957 Dove, in need of tlc, sold on e-bay for over £1500 last year.The only one I have seen for sale! Indeed body parts are even harder to find, I have been trying to find a whole new front for my Pegasus for several years.

          would anyone now where i could get any panel beading from, I have a dkr manx 250 had it from new 1959 vespa and lambretta beading no good different profile 29/8/2014

          • I have used Austin Somerset wing beading not sure how it compares to original but works ok

          • woollies car upholstery supplies do beading..p profile which has a big flange and is available in various colours looks very much original when fitted

            Hi Mick. Do you still have the DKR? Looking to photograph one for a new book. Do contact me on 07792 515056 if you’re interested. Best regards Chris

        • Dear All,

          I just bought a DKR Pegasus. But I’m missing the left rear panel (the one you need to remove to get acces to the engine).

          Does anybody has one for sale? I want to pay a good price.

          Looking forward to hear from you.
          Best regards,

          • I managed to get hold of fibreglass panels for my Manx. The flange section is wider, but can be cut down.

    • just seen your post,,don’t know if you found one but Trojan cars in portsmouth uk. has a Pegasus for sale at 5995 gb sterling for sale if you are still interested…

  2. Moulds for the DKR knee guards are now complete

    Hi, I have a DKR Pegasus, in Malta. Unfortunately I am missing the head light and tail light. As I am well aware it is very difficult to get hold of these scooter parts, and was wondering if anyone might suggest an alternative. Maybe a firm which can do them from scratch??

  5. Before going over to a motorcycle i had scooters, first a Vespa then a Lambretta and finally a DKR. The DKR was by far the best for handling and comfort, happy memories finding this page

    I have a complete DKR Defiant. . It’s currently having a new exhaust system made based on the original system, however made from stainless steel. The rest of the machine is completely standard and unrestored.
