Re: Motorcycle crime in England

It has to be pointed out that since the police started using this tactic there has been a noticeable drop "scooter crime". No bad thing.

Re: Retiring

Congratulations. I've been retired for four years and it's marvellous. If you've got an old motorcycle or two you'll never be short of things to do. One warning, all those jobs you didn't fancy doing so you told the wife "I'll do that when I retire", well she with the long memory will remind you of ...

Yup, a V Twin. A real dinosaur, side valve and total loss lubrication. 4 speed g/box but hand change.

Re: Do you have a vintage ride??

I've spent the last ten years on this project, off and on (more off than on until I retired) and when I had the money, and at last I've ridden it on the road. It's a 1936 BSA G14 998cc side valve, the sidecar has to be 1930's with styling like that, make unknown but I've never seen another like it d...

Re: Interesting concept for head injury - Q-Collar

Amazing what they think of.
I wonder if the thickness of a persons neck, which could be fat or muscle, will be a problem.

Re: Calling it a night

Are there no part numbers on the seal for you to google?
I was trying to find a seal kit for a Maggura master cyl' and, very usefully, the seals had part numbers on them.

Re: Pulse Jet Autocycle

Didn't the Fairey "Rotodyne" use tip jets, back in the 50's/60's, but I don't think it ever went into production. Noise from the tip jets being one of the problems

Duxford and the American Air Museum Hall

Picked a good day to visit Duxford Air Museum, it's their Battle of Britain air show this weekend so there were vintage aircraft arriving, making test flights and going through their display routines. Pictures to follow. If you visit Duxford the "American Air Museum" Hall is a must. It must have tak...

Re: Diesel GL1500

How do you dispose of 28 ltrs of diesel contaminated petrol? Put it in the fuel tank of your 1930 BSA, did about 80 miles on it yesterday and it didn't miss a beat. Petrol in the 30's probably had an octane rating of about 50/60 so I expect this contaminated stuff is not far off. Didn't even need to...

Loch Ness monster?

Prior to spoiling my day by topping the Wing up with diesel I had a great day at the Brooklands Museum ( brooklandsmuseum.com ). I went there last year but a lot of the aircraft exhibits were in storage whilst the their hanger was rebuilt and restored. The hanger is devoted to aircraft produced at B...

Diesel GL1500

Well not quite. Coming back from the Brooklands Museum (www.brooklandsmuseum.com) yesterday I stopped in Chertsey to top up with petrol and in a "Senior Moment" topped up with diesel instead, 10 litres of it. I was too busy yapping to my mate in the sidecar and not concentrating what little mind I'v...

GL 1500 Suspension gaiter

The right hand rear suspension unit gaiter on my 95 GL1500 has split. The Honda dealer tells me I have to buy a new suspension unit as the gaiter doesn't come separate. Anyone had the same problem if so how did you solve it?
When it comes to spares Honda are a pain in the a***!
