Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2020

Steve,
Amazing how she kept going; the valve must have been merrily flopping around!

Tough as nails those old Ariels!

I'm afraid I've not been out and about much this last week, what with one thing and another!

Re: 2020 Annual Rally Sparsholt Cancelled

Hi Steve, all, I guess it was inevitable :cry: But remember the Monty Python Song 'Always look on the bright side of life..........' The important thing is that we are all well and hopefully able to carry on and do it next year! Things could be very much worse. I glad that the venue is being held fo...

Re: Rigid rear Stand - issue

I had some hefty Thackeray washers and replaced the lightweight bronze washer on the spring side with one of them, replacing the original bolt with one that is longer so that I could crunch up the washer and then fit a locknut to keep it all in place. It seems to work, ...

Re: Rigid rear Stand - issue

Hi, thanks for the thoughts. I took the old gal out today since I hade a lunch time conference call from the office. The stand bangs constantly as I go over the bumps in the road.

Re: Rigid rear Stand - issue

Hi, I guess a clip of some sort will have to be the solution. Not ideal because it is a bit of a balancing act getting it onto the rear stand. oK once I'm behind the bike with the stand on the floor and my foot on it, but until I get to that point all is a bit precarious on anything but a level surf...
