4G Mk2 1955 Birmingham UK

Anyone fancy a 1955 Mk2? Not mint, but pretty tidy. Looks original too. Deep claret. An amount of restoration work was done by Graham Horne in 2010. It's not mine. I've been contacted by the widow of the former owner. email me only if you are serious. arieldave@hotmail.co.uk

Re: new(ish) member with KH project

Hi Jerry. Have you thought about leaving it as it is? Originality isn't everything! The KH is a lovely bike. They were very out of favour in the 1970's and 1980's but a lot came out of the woodwork in the late 80's and 90's and they now get the respect they always deserved. You may consider yourself...

Re: Armstrong shocks

It is possible to refurb Armstrong units. I have no experience but 'Big Jim' Hunter (Canada) did it and wrote about it on the old Forum and in Cheval quite a while ago. (He's been dead quite a while). A lot of people buy NJB shocks. I believe 1/3rd the price of Hagon's. And then there are Australian...

Re: WANTED: Front hub, iron, teles, 1950-55 type

Adrie, I forgot to reply. Sorry!
I picked up a front hub at the AGM autojumble, old and greasy, but beautiful when it cleaned up.

One of these days I'll make it to the Dutch rally...

Cheers
Dave

Tyre choice?

An opinion if you can offer it please. I am in a right tiz. I need a new front tyre for the VB which might be going on a long journey soon! The size is 3.25 x 19 (or 90/90 x 19). I'd prefer something British if possible. When I bought the VB in 1993 it had a Metzeler ME33 Lasertec front tyre. I like...

Hi Adrie. Thanks for your kind offer. New old stock is very hard to beat, or find come to that! I have had replies direct to me and I might have one coming to the AGM on Sunday. If I don't, I'll be in touch. Many thanks for your reply. Cheers Dave Pitt. Say Hi to Benny and Rob at the rally from me.

WANTED: Front hub, iron, teles, 1950-55 type

I need a front hub, iron, half-width, telescopics, 1950-55 (not the 1946-49 type). It has to be good, guys, with a 7" round brake drum that won't machine away the linings in 30 miles! And if it came with a spindle, bearings, abutment collars, and good locking rings, how happy I would be. Bring ...

IN PRAISE OF SAT NAV

I love my Garmin Zumo. I realise that this sentence is near heretical. When I bought it in 2011 I was accused at a branch meeting of going soft. I had a Tom-Tom before it. It seems you’re not a real man without a paper map. Not that I’ve lost my love of maps, God forbid! No, I’m as content as ever t...
