Re: 1931 Ariel LB

Question: What is that threaded Hex fitting that's part of the rear stand (next to the spring attachment) ??

Was there a handle there to help pull the bike back onto the stand ?

Curious :? .

1931 Ariel LB

A friend (not a club member) has recently acquired this 1931 Ariel LB, 250cc side-valve. It is a nice little bike that goes well and sounds good. It certainly isn't concourse but its all there. A neighbour, an Electronics Engineer, is attempting to get the '3-brush' dynamo to work. I supplied the wi...

Re: Some woman can ride.

I've ridden my gi-normous BMW 1150 GS Adventure along some scary trails in Morocco, Turkey, Bosnia (and some of the bends on the Stelvio pass are pretty scary) but the thought of riding it on those roads makes my blood run cold. They did really well on what appeared to be standard road bikes :shock:...

Re: The making of Royal Enfield's nowadays

So that's where I'm going wrong when assembling frames . . . I need a bigger hammer :lol: . Spend an hour assembling the thing from scratch . . Get it on the rolling road . . and give it the berries through the gears :lol: That's a very impressive set-up, I wonder what their annual production output...

Steve,

You should make a silent B&W film of your activities.

It would be a blockbuster :lol: :lol:

Re: Nh 350

Fitting the Brightspark Condenser is easy - it simply replaces an insulating gasket in the points assembly (in the MO1 Magneto - I haven't tried fitting one to any other types). This makes replacing one a simple process if it should fail (and you have a spare). The problem is that the original conde...

Re: degreaser

I used the new 'PC' Gunk some years ago - both in aerosol & liquid form; it was useless. Many years ago my (now late) parents came to stay, bringing with them a box of 'stuff' that I had left in a cupboard when I moved to Scotland in 1972 . . . There was a tin of 'original' gunk there. I still h...
