I have a single seat that came off a Virago that you may be able to adapt if it may be of any use. You can have it for the postage or collect if you wish.  Migt need a quick re cover,

Follow up to my last. I 've been in touch with Mr Foden and this No is a stranger to him as well.
According to the only picture that I have mine appears to be in the wrong place anyway. He explained where to find it but I certainly can't see it.

I really should be much obliged if one of you kind gents would take a pic of the "proper" place so that I can scrape the paint off and maybe find it. .Either post here or to my inbox

Thank you

 :) Hi

Thats nothing short of superb. Thanks for sharing.

However I actually meant something like a goldwing conversion etc..  Having seen that I might convert my A50 as I've got nothing to do next weekend. Ho Ho Ho.

Hi agen.

Thanks for that. I've actually been looking for a "tickler" set up, but they appear to be rarer than hens teeth. So I guess I'll have to make one.

I've actually got the monobloc as described by you.

 :)Greetings all.

What carb should I have on my 1963 A50. Currently have a monobloc fitted. One book says monobloc and another says 626/19 concentric.
Still on the bench with another few months(years?????????) to go, so no rush to change it if its wrong.

So any input very welcome.

Thanks a zillion.

Good morning all.

I am contemplating a trike as I can't get on and of anymore.  Of course a move like this comes with all the usual "buts"

So I was discussing it with a friend of similar age and problems.

His answer    Adventure before Dimensia. 

Guess that about says it all

Good morning.

Hi Arthur. That would be bril. I;m always interested in any Beesa and others of course. So I'd love to take you up on that.

Hi Julian, Yes its in a straight line. Of course I know what the alternative is.

Thanks to you both again.

 Hi Arthur

 Thanks for that. I thought it might just be that simple but knowing makes a difference.

On a completely different note. I just realised that I cannot recall ever seeing a "Dandy";
so would there be any chance of 'viewing' yours one day?

Thanks agen

Hi ..

I have a query regarding M20 engine No's.

My WM20 engine No as stamped on it is: -  WM20 B190MS10033   This does not make sense to me (or to anyone else at this stage)so any help would be great.  The frame No is WM20 110933  which the Military Museum tells me is 1944 .

Mike :)
