Re: 1958 VH

I know this bike well - and yes, it is a good genuine bike! He's upped the price a little to put it on eBay, so if you're interested I suggest you visit vmcc-essex.co.uk where you'll find it a little cheaper plus the seller's contact details.

Re: 1932 mf

It is a nice thing, but I'm surprised the auction is still running! He usually lets a bike get to a certain value then takes it off ('error with the listing' or 'item lost or broken')! Draw you own conclusions!

Re: wng canvas throttle on ebay,

Stuart Bray is asking £180 for a NOS twistgrip or £50 a pair for the canvas grips so unless folk get carried away this may be a bargain!

Lovely isn't it, although some will be getting excited about the front brake rod being outside the mudguard stay!

Re: FOR SALE : 55 Colt

Thanks Adrie - is that why some folk fit C10 gearboxes, or is that just to gain another cog? Anyone know what happened to the Colt Geoff Duke rode in the Scott?

Re: FOR SALE : 55 Colt

Having bought bikes from Andy before I know he's one of the better dealers but is this a fair price for a Colt? I've always quite liked them and now I'm getting older (and weaker!), it would be a logical move but what are the usual pitfalls of Colt ownership? Being a bit of a dinosaur I'm wary of an...

Many thanks Bob and David. I'll take all your points on board, and will certainly not run the engine until I've got this sorted, even if it means putting in another good engine I have (the bike's a hybrid anyway!). Best regards - Dick.

Re: Breather puffing oil out

Thanks Alan. Yes, a very good flow. It was a bit bubbly but I put a recon. pump on that I had and now it's a nice even flow. It would seem that as nothing is going up to the rockers, oil is building up in the timing case and coming out of the breather. I'm more concerned about the lack of rocker lub...
