I have a policy with Peter James, about £75 per year, agreed value, cover on other bikes, european riding and breakdown cover.

Saying that, my renewal is May, so remains to be seen what they come up with then!

Re: Brake plate failure

I have a hydraulic front brake, made by Lew Walwork. As far as I am aware, there has not been any issue with these, I had to renew the slave cylinders over winter and taking the brake apart it is a fantastic piece of kit! As I only did about 500 miles last year I cannot speak for the longevity from ...

Try speaking to Paul Jameson, he recently refurbished a speedo which had been buried for 50 years. Pm me for contact details or they are on page 2 of cheval de fer (if you are a member) club archivist.

Re: Burman GB gearbox

From memory I think it only takes about a pint, so I'd buy 2 bottles just to be sure.

Re: removing and inserting valve guides - advice appreciated

I always heat the head in the oven before removing a guide, then freeze the new guide and it should go in a treat.

Hydraulic Full Width Front Brake

Hi, I have one of the aforementioned brakes, which I believe Lew Walwork make a few of some years ago. Unfortunately mine has had some neglect and I have been unhappy with it all summer, so when putting the bike to bed for winter I took it off to have a proper look. It looks like both slave cylinder...

Craven panniers

Hi,

I don't suppose any one has a set of craven comet panniers (prefer with fittings)
Available? The bloke at Stafford yesterday seemed to be wearing a black and white striped jumper and was carrying a hessian sack marked 'swag', so I walked away!

Cheers

Rob

Oh, and a throttle ferrule, but I saw it drop and bravely leapt in front of a lorry to retrieve!
