Re: Vid on Indian girder forks

Ditto on the low expectations, John but we can cover ourselves buying through eBay because of their guarantee: “Shop with Confidence- Get the item you ordered or your money back”. eBay is interpreting their statement to mean that if the item is poorly crafted and is not as shown in the advertising, ...

Re: New mudguards

Apparently, Dave, the English have let manufacturing be shipped overseas. Where is the resistance? The spirit of the Industrial Revolution is dead.

Re: New mudguards

W/NG sacrilege John :o .

If the Club would hire a qualified metal worker to turn out a few dozen sets then members would be able to confidently restore Ariels to spec. So why not?

If this pair turns out to be out of spec I’ll keep it to myself or live in shame for eternity.

Re: Rear brake arm springs

Pictures are great, John. Thanx. Have I been unclear in my post? Details like this make restorations a nightmare because it is apparently very difficult to get across the problem from 8,000 miles away, The old spring works but the new one doesn’t. Unless someone tells me categorically that the pictu...

Re: Sarah Gibson on Navy W/NG

Anyone have access to the full Telegraph article? Further reading requires a subscription. Apparently there is a reference to the number of WREN DRs killed. Been watching vids of the May 1941 Liverpool Blitz. Born in Liverpool but emigrated early (not by choice). Went back for a year in 1958 and the...

Re: Rear brake arm springs

The thing is Paul, I have the NOS springs that should work with a stock brake plate but they appear not to.
Was your original spring the same as the one in the picture that allows the arm to hang vertically?
I might stretch one of the new springs to match the stretched one.

Rear brake arm springs

I am in limbo until I resolve this question: are there two types of rear brake return springs? All my machines are made up from pieces so am never overly confident that I’ve got it 100% correct. Picked up three NOS WD return springs from club spares so I know they are good to go. When trying to fit ...

Re: Swap CCW hub mounted speedo box for Ariel CW one

John, try the BSA M20 Forum because different WD marques may have used the CCW units.
