Re: VB600 technical information

Hi Paul, Thanks very much for that piece of info - very good to know, and amazing that you have such detailed factory records. I confess that I think you may have told me this last year, but I have now duly noted it down in my records to avoid further memory lapses :) Hope you are keeping safe. Beau...

Re: VB600 technical information

Thanks Chris, As I may have said in some other posting recently, it is the least powerful, but most enjoyable bike I've owned; just hearing it tick over always brings a smile: https://youtu.be/yAPnvIEnypg As you can see from the front plate, I imported it from the U.K. (about 18 months ago). I think...

Re: VB600 technical information

Hi Luiz, Here is a link to a folder of photos of my 1950 plunger framed VB, taken today: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1V2LapOdOu_FrInxL_UAdBx36xNxAbBy8?usp=sharing I do not know if it is "original" in all aspects; no doubt other more knowledgeable members of this forum could comm...

Re: VB600 technical information

Hi Luiz,
Here's an extract from engine & frame info from the Draganfly website. The frame number should be on the right hand side under the saddle nose top lug. I have a plunger framed 1950 VB in my garage - I can take any photos you want.
Cheers,
Bevan

Re: Repairing cast iron fins

Hi Bob, not meaning to hijack Charles's thread, but just out of idle curiosity, why did you decide to sleeve down the M100 ? Was the original head unserviceable ? Cheers, Bevan.

Re: Removing Ammeter from headlight case

Wow ! You are way more persistent than I am. That is exactly the same ammeter as mine. Sadly, I'm not sure my eyesight is good enough to dissemble it as you have done. I could see, with a magnifying glass, that it appeared to have some sort of black adhesive as you have shown, but it also looked as ...

Re: Removing Ammeter from headlight case

Thanks Paul,
I've got it out and confirmed that it is non-functional - doesn't register current flow in either direction. Does not look like I can get it apart without breaking it, so I think its scrap. I guess the moving coil has open circuited. Cheers, Bevan

Re: 1921 Aruel single

Thanks Alan, those will be very useful. Sadly, the elderly owner of the bike is not in good health. He is coming to terms with having to let his bikes and cars go, but hasn't made the final decision as yet, so I am not sure when or if I'll get the chance to take a look at it. I'll certainly post som...

Re: 1921 Aruel single

Thanks very much - much better than a black & white drawing.
Could be a great find, if its complete. Have not got to see it yet.
Cheers, Bevan
