The Star and Garter / Re: Richard Pawson

Very sad news indeed, I'm so shocked at the bad news, I know that Richard was one of the stalwarts of the BSAOC, attending and supporting the club in many ways, recording the mileage and presenting the awards this year at the Open day, I had great respect for Richard and like so many of the club members will miss him. RIP Richard.

That looks like a battery carrier from an M20 and I'm not sure whether it is the same as a B31 but I'm sure Julian will come out with the answer shortly, if it is the same as the M20 then there is a plate that fit behind what you have, secured to the frame with three studs and the acual carrier is clamped at the big hole, so that you can adjust the angle correctly. HTH.

Thanks Bryan, it looks like I missed a good one, for the first time in six years. Good photo's from LW, video from Bill is also good, he must have got something wrong. :) :)


The Star and Garter / BSA Open day Mkt Harborough

Hello all

Is there any photo's or video of this years open day? unfortunately I had to miss it this year, due to other commitments but it would be nice, if someone would put something on here for us all to see.
Many thanks in advance.

I bought a tank from India, a chap called Rummy, I believe, it was very good the quality was as good as could be, fitted perfect and I managed to knock him down on the price from 300 to 220 including postage. A great deal and I'm well pleased, this was a A7 tank btw. ;) ;)


Yes you can turn up on Sunday but if your a member of the BSAOC you can turn up any day,  you only pay 15 if your camping for the weekend.
I have ordered the weather for the Open Day, so it should be a cracking weekend. 8)


Only if you are a member of the club. There is a leasure centre on the same site which is open for swimming, also about 1/2 a mile away is Welland park.

Regards TTJohn

The Events Calendar gives the Open Day as May 29th, which is correct?

The actual open day is on the 28th May but if you are attending the whole weekend, ie camping or in a caravan,  it starts on the 26th until the 29th, unfortunately, I won't be able to make it this year. :(


The Star and Garter / Open day clothing

With less than two weeks before the Open day, please get your order in for the Sweatrshirts & polo shirts together with the size to make sure you get yours, there is a number of items on route to our chairman hopefully.
As I will not be able to make the open day this year, please try to help out where you can, in releiving the staff running the show, ie, manning the booking in tent, directing the members where to park etcetera and hopefully you will all have a good time.

Kind regards TTJohn :) :) 8)

I think this is normally lubricated by the oil in the gearbox

The Star and Garter / Re: BSA B31 1957
« on: 11 May, 2017, 08:49:15 »
The last long tour I took was from Kent to Arras France then on to Borken Germany = Grabow East Germany- up to Albertslund Denmark- then on to Molndal Sweden back into Esburg Denmark to catch the overnight boat to Harwich bfore returning home to Kent total about 2500 miles, on my 1957 G9 Matchless, loaded to the gunals. I would like to do it again but I think that the age thing will not allow me to that sort of mileage again but I strongly recomend it to you younger generation just so that you can experience a different style of living.

Twins / Re: Primary chaincase to crank case assembly
« on: 09 May, 2017, 09:18:28 »
Just the one gasket  is needed between the crank case and the primary chain case & there should be four studs to secure this, it is advisable to wire these as there should be drill holes in the studs. HTH


The Star and Garter / Amberley show
« on: 08 May, 2017, 10:52:54 »
Good to see a few familiar  faces yesterday, at the Amberley museum show including our own editor, who had hidden his bike amongst the Bantams, not sure why, perhaps it was because he wasn't booked in.  It was good to see you Chris and hope you enjoyed your egg & bacon butty, I was hoping to see a lot more Hampshire branch members but it was a cold ride first thing in the morning, 125 miles for me and I was glad when I finally arrived, I waas on a Matchless G9 but I wish now that I had taken the Golden Flash, slightly more comfortable riding. 8) ::)


Singles / Re: WM20 paint
« on: 05 May, 2017, 10:18:40 »
Most M20s used in military service were hand painted and painted regularly, I don't think I can ever recall a M20 tarted up like they do now with a spray finish mat  UN green, in all my nine years service, don't forget these were in service right up to the seventies, I think the only ones bulled up were the ones at Hide Park, 20 car coy RASC and RCT after 1965, The colour was bronze green. HTH
