Re: 1930 Model B - Comments Welcome

A fine choice Dave. I love riding my 1930 Model B - a superbly tractable engine and a nice chassis. Great to throw round bends.

Re: Matching numbers

Send an email to the AOMCC Archivist - they can check the dispatch records (assuming you are a club member of course). If its just that the frame and engine are the same year then look at the charts on the interweb.

I need an AKD engine. I have a 1919/20 waiting for a bigger engine (and reassembling, but that's underway)

Re: Black Ariel oil consumtion rate ?

Re: Clutch Adjuster
