Re: Conversion of 1955 NH to single seat

Well Mr Birch, no replies from our learned friends - so I'll have a go. For about a decade in the late 70s/mid 80s I ran my 1956 NH (fitted with a VB engine) with such a mod. I'd found the dual seat just too hard for long journeys and so as I was doing 90 miles a day to and from work plus occasional...

Anti-vibration gloves for bikes

Dear all, Being old and arthritic, I find garden machinery like my chainsaw, hedge-cutter and especially my strimmer make my hands tingle after about half an hour, so I've bought a pair of the above to reduce it, and among the comments on the sellers websites one finds occasionally support for these...

Re: 23 tooth drive sprocket

Thanks Eero for the link to the VB stuff; now I'm the owner of a very nice barrel and piston that's much better than the one I was about to fit reline - and only £28! And also the crankcase and bottom end for £45 where the splines on the mainshaft are far better than mine! This was my first success ...

Re: Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on a mainly Ariel 2018

Re: Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on a mainly Ariel 2018

Steven, Re the use of pan scrubbers as filters, they should be dipped in engine oil and allowed to drain so that dust particles drawn through will stick to them and remain trapped. You should use a sufficient number together so that when they're raised to the light no spot of light can be seen so th...

Re: VB engined HT for sale in France

Just a thought- I can't see an oil tank on this bike. Is the oil in the frame?
