Re: Stephen Dolling Collection ?

I'm on holiday but pretty sure my 1950 NH350 has an H between the pushrod tubes.

Re: Urgent assistance needed in Italy

Just to say that Mike made it safely back to England.

Urgent assistance needed in Italy

A good friend of mine is riding his BSA WM20 down to Monte Cassino. He's nearly there but the ignition & electrics are failing rapidly. If anyone in the area can assist he'd be very grateful. Seems a shame to get so far and then fail.. https://m.facebook.com/groups/211093936115735?refid=27 Shoul...

Re: WNG carb advice needed and road legal

Yep, I did my 1950 NH "green laner" a while back. Took it to the MOT centre with a cheap horn (£5 off ebay) connected to some aa batteries taped under the tank. I also added a cycle speedo - again cheap enough off ebay. I'd made up a chain-guard because, like the horn & speedo, even if...

Re: KH Progress

Another question if you don't mind. How do you find that lift? I don't have the space for a full size table lift, as like you I work in a conventional garage, albeit with a mezzanine storage area overhead. Looks like one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/143022260550 Looks just what I need too.

Re: Ariel 3 Shenanigans

Just a thought, if you ditched the engine and fitted a small electric motor could you ride it without all the hassle of registering it, tax, insce etc.. effectively like an electric pedal-bike?
