I have just been in contact with one of our customers that lives in Kenya who has a none existent 16" RHD doka :lol: Anyway apart from that I know he is collecting stuff and I asked about a spare gear box so fingers crossed....

As I understand from the German IG16: Stuart Stirling from Syncro Hospital in SA has a transmission and it will be shipped to him. Hopefully they can continue their journey soon.
