Re: Dragonfly clutch plates

Thanks lads. All my other Ariels have cork clutches and are nice and light. The basket is not wide enough for anymore than 3 fiction and 4 plain plates.

Dragonfly clutch plates

My VNH clutch has started slipping a little, especially when starting. It has newish cork friction plates. The plain plates are not bad but I plan to get some new ones.

I saw the floats on the river at the Rally last year. I will get the back wheel out and a paddle fitted this weekend.

Re: Rust Prevention.

WD40 I believe is about 90% paraffin. I have never found it good for long term protection. I use AC 50. Its whats

Re: 2020 Annual Rally Sparsholt Cancelled

I think its the only thing to do. The VMCC have canceled most of they're events this year to. Sad as the weather I bet will be like last years.
