The original 35 generator would have been 3 brush. You would probably have less trouble with it than the "usual" regulators. Where did you get the folding K/S pedal? '
Your alloy guards has inspired me to do my 38 RH 500 in the same trials livery, as I don't have the original and like a trials set up Can I have some detail shots of the front guard please of the stays, And where are you going to mount the forward points on the rear guard?.
I'll be using a 21 inch front wheel.. Regards Nev

But perhaps wiser would be to go for one of those trouble free electronic regulators.
With those regulators you simply use male/female connectors that you clamp to the wire.
I think I see that you have the regulator box 1/4 of a turn in the other direction (?)


Use the DYN10405 split bullets from Paul Goff's site http://www.norbsa02.freeuk.com/goffyelectrex.htm to connect up the regulator. This shows how you use them:

Thanks again for your comments / help / info... the regulator seems to have plenty of clearance under the seat but if anyone has any suggestions to make it nearer the original, patterns for a bracket etc. more then welcome...
Nev, also more than welcome to any photos / measurements etc. you like, I'm working away from home now until the weekend but send me a list (and remind me :lol: ) and I'll forward on whatever you want. The k/s was the one on the bike when I got it so don't know it's origins and the rear mudguard is fixed where the regulator is mounted and seems quite rigid forward of that without additional fixings, I was planning to leave it as is... unless someone knows better...
Will check out the link for terminals as well, thank you Simon... hopefully next steps over the bank holiday weekend :)

Front mudguard details - tried to post this earlier in the week but photos wouldn't upload... anyway, have attached a couple of photos, it's all quite simple really the guard attaches at the top via a bracket across the forks, one hole / one bolt through the centre and then at the rear with what I think is the original stay (unless someone knows different?), there is no front stay and all seems very well fixed and solid. I was trying to save the mudguard that was on it but it has some heavy corrosion so I have bought a replacement ( http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321759048782? ... EBIDX%3AIT) item No. 321759048782 which has arrived today and is very similar except for being about 4" longer, might shuffle it's position or bring out the hacksaw, not sure yet... will see what it looks like

Thanks for that. The single bolt under the fork looks a little minimum. Were these done at the factory? I have seen pictures of many of the brit bike brands of the period done as trials, so I'm inclined to think most of the makes did a version. IIs there anything in the archives? Catalogues The VCH's have a handle on the front and rear guards to pull the bike out of mud . Nev

Nev, I shall leave answering your questions to someone with more knowledge than me, I only really know how I got the bike although am picking up lots of interesting information as the rebuild goes along thanks to club members. I have fitted the replacement mudguard now, it was longer than the 'original' but I decided just to balance the difference out and I think it looks OK. Have mounted as previous, one bolt at the top and the rear stay and it feels quite rigid.

Thanks for everything. Please don't take me as picking faults. I'm just thinking aloud. Alloy guards are where I will go. I ordered a couple today. I will be relying on the style of yours, a lot. I have a picture of my VCH on this"members Bikes" It has original guards and stays. My eldest son is doing a Compy AJS (51 18CS) which has original (repaired a long time ago) guards. Nev

Never crossed my mind Nev, just interesting dialogue and questions... VCH looks awesome by the way, if mine looks half as well on completion I'll be delighted... see what you mean about the 'handles' on the mudguard stays too.
Finished the carb on mine yesterday, on to the wiring next (I think), I keep procrastinating but sometime I've got to bite the bullet :?

It would be easier to crimp or solder the bullet!

Absolutely. You can buy a crimping tool for less than the price of just a check up at the dentist.
