Re: The rebuild starts - 1935 Red Hunter

Never crossed my mind Nev, just interesting dialogue and questions... VCH looks awesome by the way, if mine looks half as well on completion I'll be delighted... see what you mean about the 'handles' on the mudguard stays too. Finished the carb on mine yesterday, on to the wiring next (I think), I k...

Knee grips different types help required

I've just got around to the re-painting part of my tank and up until now didn't realise that there are 2 (or more?) different types of knee grip... can anyone tell me the difference and which is the correct type for my 1935 / 1936 spec 350 NH? I bought new replacements of the more rounded type (top ...

Re: The rebuild starts - 1935 Red Hunter

Front mudguard details - tried to post this earlier in the week but photos wouldn't upload... anyway, have attached a couple of photos, it's all quite simple really the guard attaches at the top via a bracket across the forks, one hole / one bolt through the centre and then at the rear with what I t...

Re: The rebuild starts - 1935 Red Hunter

Hi Vincent and thanks for your comments... you are correct, the regulator is turned through 90 degrees, it's because the original mudguard and bracket are not there so I've had to improvise how it is mounted, should be OK though I think :?:

Re: Clutch thrust washer looks wrong
