Re: 1928 Model C Burman Q box

Thanks Gents, getting there, your stop arrangements looks slightly different to what I think mine will be once all welded up. Trouble is I am trying to re engineer what I have inherited and there is no clear detail of what it should be. This is slightly confusing as what it should be might have been...

1928 Model C Burman Q box

Would it be possible for someone who has a working Q box to remove the tin cover from the kickstart and send/post a couple of pictures with the kickstart in both extreme positions. I have all the bits and can assemble them but it just doesn't look right. I am wondering if my spring is too big. In th...

Wheel rim sizes and tyres 1928 Model C

Puzzled! my rims appear to be original? but I am measuring the rear at 2 1/2" WM1 and the front at 2 3/4" WM2 this does not make sense having a rear smaller than the front? I am trying to establish exactly what size tires to fit. I took off 19 x 2.75 front and 19 x 3.00 rear, I am happy th...

Re: Insurance

I have been with Footman James for over 25 years, for bikes, old car and house. Last month rang to add my 28 Ariel to the renewal list; I was then subjected to the most ridiculous questions, they stopped short of asking how many doors! They then wanted 50 quid to add the Ariel. I rang Peter James, s...

1928 Model C carb

I have an Amal carb currently on the bike as bought, it is a type 276 AC 1A whilst I appreciate it is not the original type it's all I have at the moment. Does anyone have any advise on the following: Is it better to stick with this later carb? Is there indeed a better carb readily available from Am...

Re: NEW BIKE!

I bought it with no intention of doing it up, just getting it safe & reliable. Bought with no spark so some work needed. Kickstart jammed up & upon stripping top few teeth are missing from ratched but should be part of the fun. When in there found a crack in this gearbox end plate that thad ...
