I'm very pleased with the Indian tank I bought for my A10. I had to buy taps and badges separately but 250 got me a fully chromed and painted tank complete with filler cap delivered to my door. Fitted excactly as it should and no leaks.

Same here, No problems.

It's only a single seater. I'm not insured to carry passengers.
Standard springs.
I already have a lower cush sprocket if required but want to keep the higher gearing if pos.
and I am fitting a TLS front brake
Sidecar will be like this one.

I have just had my A7ss picked up to have a chair fitted, I mentioned to the man collecting it that I hadn't geared it down, he replied that it wasn't necessary.

Hi folks, I'm about ready to paint my Spitfire fiberglass tank and have been told that there are two colours. Apparently, the mk11 was initially launched in peony red but later could be had in a brighter red that I don't have the name of. Anyone know what this brighter red may be called?
Regards Bob

Twins / Oil feed routing
« on: 27 March, 2017, 14:19:21 »
I have looked for a routing diagram, without success.
Does anone know which side of the bottom oil tank fixing does the rocker box feed go ?
When I got the bike it was routed on the engine side of the bottom fixing, I think it would look much better if it was routed between the bottom fixing and the frame.
Is there any reason why I can't do this ?

Picture shows it routed on the engine side of the bottom fixing.

Good thinking, I will give that a go today (Sunday) & let you know how it goes.

Twins / Nut removal
« on: 25 March, 2017, 21:28:17 »
I am trying to remove the acorn nut from the end of the rocker shaft but the shaft just turns and the nut stays put.
Any one got a trick to lock the shaft so that the nut can be removed ?

Does anyone know if my 1958 primary chain case cover with just the one cap will change for the newer type with the two caps and the drain / level plug in the bottom ?
