The Star and Garter / Waiting for a V5
« on: 21 October, 2021, 10:29:57 »
How long should I wait for DVLA to send a V5, I purchased the bike at the beginning of June, the original V5 was sent straight in, I have emails at the beginning of August & September - but nothing.

Is it normal to wait 20 weeks + for a V5?


Singles / C15 continuous oil leak
« on: 23 June, 2020, 16:36:17 »
Can I ask all the  C15 experts, what is the likely cause of oil continually leaking from the gear change shaft, this appears to be a strait through leak from the oil tank, it leaves a puddle of clean oil without the bike moving or running, it just started  to leak without any pre wetness or dripping. I have removed the cover only to find a machined weep hole from the gearbox inner cover, presumably to oil the kickstart.

As you may of deduced, it has been a very long time since I worked on a bike
Any help would be appreciated.

Singles / Engine change
« on: 24 October, 2018, 11:09:08 »
I have a 1961 C15, unfortunately I have had to change the engine because it was beyond economic repair. In the past I have had a lot of trouble with DVLA regarding registration of a previous C15. The replacement engine is the latter 1965 engine.
My question is, will I have problems with DVLA changing engine number on the V5, I am fearful that they are awkward and retain my current V5.
