In all the previous excitement forgot to ask.
Ameter showing discharge.
Can it be wired wrongly?

Hello folks
Update on my C15
Some of you may remember the progress of this rebuild.
Late last night managed to lower the bike to the floor it had been on the bench for months
so I wanted to run the engine again.
This is the first time complete with proper petrol tank.
Bike is all together apart from chain guard.
After several Kicks not even a single fire, thought about wet dumping etc.
Then noticed the fuse on the bench from earth connection (idiot)
Started first kick
Lots of fettling to do clutch, leek on carb., tappets.
Still waiting to be informed of date for DVLA INPECTOR.
There is positive hope of return to the road

Hello People
Waiting for a DVLA oppionted rep. To inspect my C15.

I am nearing completion (if you ever do).
Many thanks to all the great advice.
As some of you will remember I am building a C15, it was mainly complete
But mostly in parts.
I have received lots of help from Arther,Julian and others.
Also noted no posts from Arther does anyone know now he is?

       I have some difficulty starting my. C15SS FROM COLD.
       I noticed some pictures from Julian show an additional lever on the handlebars.
       Is this a choke which could help !
        I have a Amal 375 (I think standard fitting)
        Where can I buy this fitting ?

Singles / C15 rear light
« on: 18 April, 2017, 22:56:30 »
I am experiencing difficulty fitting a bulb to the rear light.
As you know this is the stop and tail type I am on 6 volt, although I am using an offset bulb
in a similar type holder the pins do not align.
I thought the fitting may be different for 6 volt ? So tryed. a 12 volt bulb same no fit ?
Some of you may remember this bike came in boxes so not the original light.
Sorry to witter on but are 6volt and 12volt bulbs the same type of pins.
Thanks in anticipation.

Thanks Julian
It appears that the switch is good but the plug is the problem, replacement on order.

Just completed rewire.
I think the switch is not making contact.
Can these be opened up for repair ??
Otherwise more expense.
Too far to turn back now.
