Singles / LED replacement lamp
« on: 14 December, 2018, 17:14:44 »
What do you gentlemen recommend as a LED replacement for the stop and tail lamp bulb in a Lucas 679 rear light on a 1970 Victor?  I'd prefer a straight forward replacement if possible but also willing to make a modification.

Please can anyone recommend a road legal LED stop and tail lamp replacement bulb or LED circuit board for the Lucas 679 rear light fitting on a 1970 BSA Victor?

The Star and Garter / Motorcycle insurance for a novice

Please can you offer any advice on motorcycle insurance to a newcomer.

Recently retired, I've just completed my first restoration on a !970 B44VS. I have owned it since 1975 and I rode it for about 5 years but it has spent the last 37 years in three packing cases. It has turned out rather well and so I'm keen to get riding again.
Any advice on where to go for insurance and what to ask for (i.e. agreed valuation) would be much appreciated.

Singles / B44 Head Gasket
« on: 09 March, 2017, 09:36:01 »
  I'm restoring a 1970 B44VS and am unable to find a new head gasket of sufficient thickness ( >0.045" ) here in the UK so I've dicided to attempt to make one from 1.2mm ( 0.047") copper plate. If I fail then I'll have the fire ring reduced in height to reduce the head to barrel gap which is at present 0.042".

Please can anyone advise -
Is the raised lip of the commonly available gaskets a neccessity ?
Is an interferance fit of the gasket to the side of the fire ring important ?

Thanks if you can,
