Twins / Stand Springs Woe.
« on: 14 September, 2017, 15:06:32 »
My newly painted frame is ready to come together with the newly painted side and centre stand. I have two brand new springs as well. Not looking forward to fitting these, there must be a wealth of experience out there and any tips would be greatly appreciated. The engine is not in so I can lay it down on a nice off cut of carpet. Help please.

Hitchcock motorcycles do a nice range of fuel taps, not just Enfield. Regards.

Can someone post a colour wiring diagram of the OIF Thunderbolt on here or direct me to one via a link. I am building my bike from scratch, frame upwards. Thanks.

If you want a nice show plate, google Tippers in Devon. Good quality polished aluminium.

Rope is also good for locking engines so flywheel nuts can be undone on other engines eg Briggs and Stratton ( don't laugh ).

The Star and Garter / Kursall Klassics in Southend

Visited this classic bike shop today for the first time today. The owner Martin was very helpful, he sorted me out some very good secondhand spares for my A65. Old school expert at old school prices.
Even come away with a new Dunlop Roadmaster for 50. Credit where it's due.

Twins / Sealed wheel bearings ?
« on: 22 August, 2017, 13:25:04 »
I am rebuilding my wheels including the bearings. Most bearings on the market are now sealed !! I am used to adding loads of new grease when I change these, do we still have to apply liberal amounts and do we still fit the dust covers and grease retainers if we use sealed units. Thanks.

Draganfly Motorcycles website have a brilliant website for looking at issues like this, just go to parts and enter you model, then go to wheels. Ticks all the boxes.
