My name is LP, i own a Hijet MPV 993cc EFI.
i have owned this since December 2008 and i have not been able to find any decent forums for Hijets!
So i have decided to start my own!

I hope this forum will have more daily activity than the ones i have been members of so far!

Hi everybody. I was given my Hi-Jet about four years ago because the man who owned it was retiring, and it wanted a number of jobs doing on it for the M.O.T. It's a 1993 carburettor model. Over the years it's proved it's weight in gold for transporting things around, and taking rubbish to the tip. I also restore Lambretta scooters, so it comes in handy to take frames and panels for painting etc. It's a brilliant little van, but the price of parts for it are horrendously expensive ! I have done a lot of work on my van, and I've had the usual problems with overheating. Although I'm no expert on the Hi-Jet, I am a professional mechanic by trade, and I hope to help out on here where I can. I'll post some pictures when I've taken some. Cheers !

You must be able to fit a full lambretta in the back, mine fits my cb500 and my dt125lc, but not at the same time!

Yes, I took my friend's newly restored GP 200 to the DVLA registration office in Chester. The front wheel of the scoot was up against the 'hump' behind the seats, and we put some old blankets over the back of the scooter, then closed the tailgate. It was wedged in very snugly, without any risk of damage. It's amazing how much you can get in the back of one of these little vans !

Newbie with a hijet

Post by Bodminjet46 on Sat Dec 26, 2015 12:53 pm

Very Happy Hi all, my name is Graham, I am the proud new owner of a 1997 Hijet camper, I am slowly restoring it.
So far in total it has cost about £900, maybe a bit more, but for fun and going out in it's priceless.
If anyone can point me in the right direction for parts in Cornwall, I would be very grateful.
Thanks for a great site and maybe for 2016/7 we should get a show together, just hijets.
Thanks again
Graham
