I made an adaptor out of an old main jet holder to check fuel level (not on the bike as it's impossible (for me) to get to).....

Re: square four scam on ebay

I always report them when I come across them - there were a couple for Nortons this week, probably the same person.

They get round ebay's ban on putting email addresses / phone numbers in the listings by including them as an image. Tricky.....

Re: Chronometric S433

Hi Simon.

I have an S433B/EX on my Norton (see pic) which has no trip but does seem to have a light housing.

Fancy a swap as I'd prefer to have one with a trip?

Re: Road racing handlebars

Yes, Colin Wall is the main restoration man. He is good but I don't think he even tries to get the bikes as they were when they left the factory.

Re: Road racing handlebars

It's a shame as the NMM is great place but just can't be used to verify originality. I checked the control levers on the Arrows they have and all had 1 1/16" pivot distances rather than the correct 7/8". Having said that, racing bikes in particular will have been fitted with whatever the o...
