Re: Some woman can ride.

I've ridden my gi-normous BMW 1150 GS Adventure along some scary trails in Morocco, Turkey, Bosnia (and some of the bends on the Stelvio pass are pretty scary) but the thought of riding it on those roads makes my blood run cold. They did really well on what appeared to be standard road bikes :shock:...

Re: The making of Royal Enfield's nowadays

So that's where I'm going wrong when assembling frames . . . I need a bigger hammer :lol: . Spend an hour assembling the thing from scratch . . Get it on the rolling road . . and give it the berries through the gears :lol: That's a very impressive set-up, I wonder what their annual production output...

Steve,

You should make a silent B&W film of your activities.

It would be a blockbuster :lol: :lol:

Re: Nh 350

Fitting the Brightspark Condenser is easy - it simply replaces an insulating gasket in the points assembly (in the MO1 Magneto - I haven't tried fitting one to any other types). This makes replacing one a simple process if it should fail (and you have a spare). The problem is that the original conde...

Re: Nh 350

Earlier this year I built up four modified MO1 Mags from parts with 'Brightspark' condensers - They produce good sparks. The trick is to remove the original condenser and replace the coil connections with something set in an infill medium. I experimented with 'Clearcast Plastic' (too brittle), a mac...

Re: QD hub dismanteling

Well, I learn something new every day . . . "In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi (侘 寂) is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete". It is a c...
