Re: Welding 35 VH chaincase

I think I will try and find another chaincase and use that while I try re-welding the old one which is the original.

Re: Welding 35 VH chaincase

He has been a fabricator for Renault F1 and Roberts Moto GP so I assuume he knew what he was doing and he builds custom bikes for a living. I think it was TIG welded . I would agree about the different rates of expansion but he said immediately he stopped welding, before it had time to cool down it ...

Re: Welding 35 VH chaincase

It can't really be saturated in oil - it is a chaincase which never keeps much in for long !
I realise that may be the case but it seemed very clean inside and wasn't a problem to weld but every time he took the torch away , there was a ping and the weld cracked away from the main casting.

Welding 35 VH chaincase

Hi I found part of the chain cover on the inner chaincase had broken on my 35 VH. I tried to get it welded but the ex F1 and Moto GP welder couldn't repair it . Every time he finished the weld it cracked away from the chaincase as it cooled down , even after preheating it. Has anyone else welded a c...

Re: bikes excempt from mot a good idea?

I'm not sure it is a good idea for cars/vans, as most of their problems ( rust in chassis and brake pipes) would have kept them off the road before with the faults unseen from the roadside.

Re: Worlds most expensive vintage motorcycle.

I dont regard these as motorcycles as they are never ridden , just collected to be vanity projects.

Re: HT500

It looks a very genuine trials outfit which will require a fair bit of work to turn it back into the semi concours bike so beloved on here

Re: Blacking Cylinders - Stoved Enamel

when I rebuilt my 35 VH for trials in 1983 I had the barrel and head stove enamelled. The barrel has lasted well although it got attacked by stones grit,mud etc it only very locally chipped, but the head burnt off near the exhaust port. However I'm sure that taking the use into account it lasted rea...

Re: 1948 VCH

Aren't you all judging this by the wrong standards.?
Surely it is just a trials bike that probably has been modified a few times to make it more competitive rather than an attempt to deceive anyone that it is a standard bike of any description.
A case of "what you see is what you get "
