In mid-March I bought a reconditioned gearbox at Bert's in Geleen. Due to all kinds of circumstances I only had the opportunity to finalize the deal last week, so I quickly made a trip to Geleen in the very south of Holland. Spent a pleasant hour drinking coffee and talking about 850 spiders and then it was back home with the gearbox.

Bert regularly has engines and gearboxes from 850s in overhaul and sometimes advertised them on Marktplaats. What he doesn't sell there is sold all over Europe through Spiderclubs.
