1956(?) NH with sidecar

Postby fpassmore » Fri Nov 20, 2020 3:55 am

Well, saw this bike a fellow has had as a project easily 4 years ago, engine needs a rebuild and sidecar is very rough. Offered to take it off his hands but he said no so I told him to keep me in mind.
Today he called me and says he wants $2400 CAD so going over tomorrow to remind myself what it all looks like and confirm how complete it is. Achhh, so many projects already on the go but I have to take a look at this one.

Hi Frank,
If I remember correctly you've got some pretty good hills out there in BC and you're thinking of buying a 350 with a sidecar!

Ah yes, the intention is to move the sidecar to something with a little more power and just enjoy the NH as it is.

Picked up the NH yesterday and now it is in my storage shop awaiting a tear down and assessment. Bit of a job moving it as it has been converted to hydraulic brakes front and back but they were both jammed pretty tight. Extra crank, conrod, new piston with rings, original ferc, oil tank and side cover (chromed items on it right now) so a good bit of spares. Should be fun.
Then he gives me a phone number for a friend who cleaned up a garage for a widowed woman which turned out to be a hoard of Tiger Cub and Bantam bikes and spares. Going over there tomorrow but there will be hell to pay when the top administrator finds out what I have been up to.

Thanks, I remember that well and happy for the support being offered.
No sooner did I get the NH unloaded then I get another call from a fellow who heard about this weird fellow who likes British bikes. He wants me to go look at what he has from cleaning out the garage of an acquaintance who sadly passed on a month or so ago and it appears to be all Bantam and Tiger Cub bits and pieces with two complete bikes. What am I to do ? I already have a few of each but I am a big believer in “you have to have spares”.
