Hello, there! It's Steam Traction World
Welcome to our very first email newsletter. We are excited with this new approach - we hope you will find the newsletters interesting, informative and not too frequent enough to block up your inbox!
We do have a large number of fans and followers, throughout the world, and this is a new way, in addition to our Forum, Website and Social Media, where we can keep you all informed of production progress, the latest news and new products. Talking of which let's introduce our Lykamobile Steamer Series 2.
Lyka a Lot
There's lot's of love for our Lykamobile - The original Lykamobile Steamer (Series 1) proved to be very popular with sixty five selling worldwide. The Lykamobile has been 'out of production' with a 5 year break in manufacturing and is, only now, being re-introduced due to customer requests. This brand new batch will be limited to only thirty across the globe with production starting in July 2016 - or sooner once ten confirmed orders are achieved.
We drove our Series 1 Lykamobile from John O Groats to Lands End - to prove the build quality, reliability and raise heaps of cash for charity too!
The Lykamobile Steamer Series 2 will have a number of improvements - These will include much ‘beefier’ valve gear (beefier is a technical term!), valve gear running on bearings, use of oil impregnated bushes throughout and stronger leaf springs. We are also considering changing the electrical water managing system gauge system and redesigning the boiler so it is more like a Stanley Steam Car.
The Lykamobile Steamer Series 2 is available as a series of self assembly kits and delivered at the rate of one kit per month over a twenty four month period. Without even advertising it, at this stage, we have already received NINE deposits and anticipate this batch to sell out quickly. The initial ten orders can take advantage of a 'early bird' discount. To qualify for this offer simply be one of the first ten customers to secure one of this initial batch and you will save £1,756 on the advertised list price. Further pricing as follows:
Deposit: £823 (normally £995)
Kits 1 - 24: £549 (normally £615)
Total Price: £13,999 (normally £15,755 saving £1,756)
All we are asking at this moment in time is a holding deposit of £195. This then secures the special offer price for you. The balance of the deposit payment of £628 will only be required when we confirm we have received ten firm orders and issue you with a commence date.
All the above prices include VAT at 20% but excludes delivery. UK mainland delivery is fully insured by next day courier and charged at £14.95 per kit. Please contact Steam Traction World for delivery pricing outside of mainland UK.
