Re: Secondary chain size on 1937 VB

My 35 VH has always had a 3/8x5/8" chain and the parts list shows 5790-33 rear chain 5/8 x 3/8

Re: 1937 VG500

I find members expectations most unreasonable in this . By all means point out non-standard parts for information but dont expect 100% originality if the bike is ever ridden it should be .

Re: Magneto sparks at points

I had one of these Brighspark condensors fitted some couple of years ago and the mag has performed faultlessly ever since.

Re: High level pipes on VH oil tank clearance

None on my Armours high pipe, I had to tweak it a bit to actualy fit.
On the original pipe there is an extra slight bend just before the oil tank.

Re: Girder fork top spring mount

Re: Girder fork top spring mount

I had to fit a similar spacer to my VH as the front mudguard continually crashed into the girder fork bridge casting in spite of fitting a new OS spring. This was initially when used in trials trim but since our roads have deteriorated into their current state it is needed on the road as well.
