Re: 20" inner tube

Hello, I want to renew the innertube of the 20" front wheel of my '51 NH. Where are innertubes of that size available? Thanks and Kind Regards Klaus Klaus, Inner tubes are quite forgiving and a 21 inch will fit a 20 inch tyre. Have a look at the Draganfly site here: http://www.draganfly.co.uk/...

Re: Petrol level in carb.

back in the day, we could get Monobloc float bowl covers with a glass (more probably plastic!) window in it so that the fuel level could be seen. They were useful for setting-up carbs, though some people used to run with them all the time (and with finned float bowl extensions :roll: :lol: ). Are th...

Re: Side Stand Picture request

I don't trust these stands and have only ever put one into use when the rear stand on one of my bikes broke. +1 - I had a side stand like that on my '53 Square four (back in the early 70s 8-) ). One warm day I parked it up on the sidestand and was talking to some mates when I caught some movement o...

Re:

I shall save something just for you Bob for 1st April :twisted: I do seem have it the right way round, the bigger hole for the ferrule is opposite the hex end. The hex end just has the small hole that goes right through, maybe someone made it wrong. In the end I've just drilled a slightly bigger ho...

Re:

and also remove the need for the use in earlier times of heated tins of "Linklyfe" to immerse your cleaned rear chain in, a somewhat tedious operation! I still have my 1960s tin of 'Linklyfe'. I was going to bring it back into service now that I have the 'VH' (all my BMWs are/were shaft-d...

Hey Steven - for a moment I thought it was April 1st :roll: .

Your threaded adjuster is the wrong way round on the cable (I take it this is a joke :lol: ).

Re:

Mine is not so much stiff - everything is free, but you can certainly feel the weight in all those parts. I remember frosty early morning starts on my four-pipe Square. Trying not to wake the neighbours, standing on the kickstart hoping enough pots would fire to let it run. With cold, straight-50 o...
