Hello Gui, do you think the the engine runs rough because you rev it beyond a certain range or could it be that other influence e.g. wear from the wheelbearings cause the rough running above 60 mph.

Re: Air filter on a Solex carb?

Thanks

Re: A rare Ariel design fault

If I remember correctly the only problem with the lockup of the cable operated rear brake of a 1953 bike is that the cable outer sometimes had been too short. With the correct dimensions of the rear brake cable the rear break should work fine.

Re: single timing cover - engrave model letters

Thanks Dave,
I do have a reference from the spare engine myself. I was curious how a replica could be made the easiest way! I will see the local trophy maker and see what he can do!
Thanks

single timing cover - engrave model letters

Having almost finished my VHA I realized that the Timing cover lacks the ususal letters e.g. VHA etc. Instead finding the right type somewhere I was wondering if there is a proven method of engraving the letters into the blanc cover? Any ideas how this can be done or has been done before? Thanks for...
