Re: 1939 VA front mudguard removal

It's not difficult to make a new strap if you have to cut the other to get it out of the fork. When it's off you can clean the welds off and rebolt the new strap to the guard. nev

Re: Speedo gearbox question

The speed reading and the ODOmeter reading are in the correct relationship. Is this a front wheel drive set up? There's less to be out with the front wheel driven unit. Nev

Re: 500 Single

The Tele's for sure if there's a "use' reason. I've often thought if making my own swing arm modification , but I don't want the extra weight and the time element would be considerable.. Nev
