Re: Today's ride

Took the VH for a ride from Bath/Bristol to jaunt around Exmoor yesterday with a mate on his M21. Down through Wells, Glastonbury, Bridgewater to Minehead for breakfast. Then up over Porlock hill to Lynmouth for a wander and an beer break. It was then inland to travel the lanes and byways where we f...

Re: Front Forks

Hi Jim, You could always make your own dampers. I did a number of years ago and used them on my Super Rocket, made a great difference. I bought a set of top caps with a hole already drilled in it for the rod. I seem to remember that I got them from Will at Classic Stainless but I may be wrong. Here ...

Re: FOR SALE : 1947 350

This bike was on EBay last year listed by a club member. It sold for £4250 so the dealer who has it now is looking for a good profit. The dealer has had it on EBay as well over the last 6 months at the same price, perhaps that should tell him something.

Re: Does anybody recognise this rear mudguard

Thank you to those of you who have had a look at the pictures to see if you can recognise the mudguard. I guess it remains a mystery.

Does anybody recognise this rear mudguard

I have been asked by a friend if I recognise what model of bike a rear mudguard he has came from but I can't so I thought I would ask. It is two piece mudguard with pins in the rolled edge to line up the 2 parts.

Re: My latest Ariel

Hi Bob, I'm going to leave her as she is at the moment in an oily rag sort of way. I have enough squeaky clean bikes and its nice to have one that you can just ride without to many cares. As far as next years Bristol show I was planning to put the Square 4 on the Bath stand if my partner and I are n...

My latest Ariel

Early in the year I decided I needed a big single to take on the West Wilts VMCC holiday to mid Wales this summer that I could enjoy taking around the lanes, trails and tracks. I didn't want to risk the 37 M100 Panther so I started looking for a VH or VB. Well here is what I bought, a 500 OHV bitsa....

Re: Speedometer repair

The chap that goes to Kempton is David Woods and his son Philip of Cronometric Speedos at http://www.chronometricspeedos.co.uk. They also do a good job, I have had a number of speedos and rev counters refurbished by them.
