Hi, I am hoping to get my mini around the back of my house, at the minimum point (for a straight run) it’s 144cm. Does anybody know whether it will go?
It’s a 1987 mini city, It has standard wheels and no wheel arch plastics, I will remove wing mirrors.
By measure I think I need about 147cm but not certain, any help/advise gratefully received.
Cheers
Pete

Gives me hope, thanks a lot, her indoors has given permission for a workshop space in the garden, means power, light and heating - yippee! Pushing the question as I have a step that sticks out a little further along, do you know what the rolling width is, under tyre if you know what I mean.

Why not stop between the doors?
