Re: Pannier patterns

I have a couple of originals on my '49MAC which really are the worse for wear and rot, my intention was to see if I could have them repaired/ resurrected by a local sail maker but if you say these are available, worth considering, can you give a link pse? kind regards

Re: WNG Magdyno

my G80cs has slack wire advance, the DB32 had tight, dunno why seems pretty standard though, decided to change it, not as easy as thought, different end cap no problem but then the cam was wrong so had to get a new cam, then the retaining clip was to short so had to source another longer one, Thanks...

Hi John, yes you are correct of course, guess we hadn't thought that one through, maybe that's what he does I havn't seen him in years, however does seem strange that the filler point couldn't be at the front. kind regards

Re: Mini Lathe

I have a roundhead student and a ML7, I couldn't have built my G80cs without a lathe, the student at the time, I have cut a thread on the student but as most of my threads are small'ish, I tend to use a die, the smallest so far 8BA, I think a ML7 would be a better proposition maybe than a Chinese on...

Re: What's Wrong With This 58 FH?

the float extension was a popular 'add on ' in the day the 'fast boys would fit them to A10's Bonneviles ect as they allowed the float chamber to hold more fuel, whether it was needed or not who knows. I have one on the G80cs and two on the '61 Bonnie, they came with both machines. kind regards
