Standard bathroom silicone sealant has worked for me.

Singles / B31 Rear Wheel Spindle
« on: 18 January, 2018, 16:44:05 »
I'm having problems finding one for a rigid B31; I've tried Draganfly, Burton Bike Bits and C&D with no luck.  Can anyone recommend any other sources? (The B31/33 is my first BSA since my Bantam in the early 80s, so I'm still finding my way around these things!)

Thanks, Mark.

I've just bought a grease gun from Ebay: item number 222220112488. 15 including 5 grease cartridges and it's also got a flexible nozzle which is great to reach the rear hub grease nipple for example.

Morning everyone. I've recently bought a rigid B31/33 which was almost impossible to lift onto the centre stand.  I got an Enfield Bullet lifting handle from Hitchcocks (about 6.50) and fixed it to the lower bracket for the rear mudguard stays.  (About six inches above wheel spindle level). It's made a massive difference and may well have saved me from a hernia...

The bike has a professionally made one-off side-stand which fixes on the front engine mounting bolts and works excellently.  Gouged paint on the frame behind the gearbox shows where someone had tried to clamp a side-stand before.

Regards, Mark.
