Re: December's Cheval

No known problems, guys. I understand from Roger that 3 Finnish mags have not arrived. Perhaps the EU is getting it's own back for our idiocy!
Anyway Eero, Pagefast are sending you another,

I received this mail earlier today. Although we knew he was pretty ill, it still came a a shock as we had driven over to to the German and Dutch Rallies taking Chris and his KH in our van only this Sept.

Re: 4G Conrod Advice

Absolutely, Roger. The club scraps them and it obviously cost money to do that but it saves a lot of crankcases

Re: Frame

Thanks guys for your help. Don't have any more pictures Will. I originally told the guy that I thought the lower addition might be a 1928 home mod - now I can show him a picture of what it should look like, Karol

Re: Right angle drive Smiths Speedo

Thank you both. That was helpful. Still wonder what it was put together for though as an 80mph speedo. .

Panel tank cover

If you buy one of these from India they never have the boss in which to fit the panel light. I have always wondered why this was so. But this eBay sale suggests that there were originals like this. https://tinyurl.com/yaqvmg5d What sort of trouble light fitted these? Anyone any idea?

Right angle drive Smiths Speedo

Has anyone ever seen one of these? I used it for a while in a prewar panel tank and now want to move it on but it would help to find out what it really was fitted to. The code number suggests a 50s AJS 350 but in that guise it would not have had the r/angle drive. 2018-12-02 13.14.36.jpg 2018-12-02 ...
