Re: '57 VH, Four and a half years later...

Since I have had nothing through the post from the dvla I called them today, and the lady said my application was processed 2 days after I went in with the forms ( and photos ) and she gave me the registration number over the phone.

Maybe I lucked out this time!

Re: '57 VH, Four and a half years later...

Dad told me you had had some trouble John. Interestingly I went in to my local DVLA office today (Nottingham), armed with some photos of the bike and they told me they did not process the number on the enquiry desk, and they would take all of my information, charge me the £55 and I could expect my t...

Thanks all for the advice. Ended up ditching the remote master cylinder in favour of an on handlebar standard set up, and had to re hone the slave cylinders and give them a good clean - seems to have worked fingers crossed!

Hydraulic Full Width Front Brake

I have been attempting to use a hydraulic instead of the usual brake for my late VH. Since I hate the look of the brake reservoir and the master cylinder I have sourced a cable operated master cylinder from a moped, and hiding it behind the headlamp inside the cowling. I am having MASSIVE problems g...

Hi Ian, When I restored the forks on my '57 VH, I had to cut the lower bush off to get the nut to loosen (My dad actually recommended I do this). The lower bush is effectively sandwiched on to the stanchion by a small collar on the inside of the bush (see Photo) DSC00979 (1024x768).jpg If you carefu...

If you are replacing the lower bush the easiest thing to do is to VERY carefully using a hacksaw cut the bush close to the nut, as there is a lip on the bush approximately 1/16th of an inch thick. This will release the pressure on the nut without damaging the stanchion or burring it if you gently ho...

Mike, Peter James will insure your huntmaster on its frame or engine number if you haven't got it registered, and they do let you bolt on modern bikes. Last year i was paying £160 per year for my VH (still not finished) and a zx6r ninja. It is a very cost effective way of insuring modern bikes

I use a full face AGV helmet with a flip down sun visor inside the main, which is very useful for those of us who do not wear glasses and don't have reactalites. If i did more continental stuff i'd probably go for a flip front type (to stop having to take it off through customs)
