Singles / Petrol tank corrosion (ethanol)
« on: 10 October, 2017, 19:06:57 »
Having only just got my 1961 C15 star starting and running well I now have a problem with paint flaking off the inside of the tank and interrupting fuel flow. How the paint got inside the tank is not known.

Can anyone suggest (or point me at) a procedure for cleaning the inside and the best method of protecting it from the ethanol?

Also does anyone know of a UK supplier of new / refurbished tanks for a 61 C15?

Thanks for any help.

The key has broken off inside the ignition switch on my 1961 C15.

Singles / Exhaust leak

Can anyone suggest a suitable sealant for a leak from the exhaust pipe on my C15? The leak is where the pipe push fits into the cylinder. Cheers.

Singles / C15 Max Speed

Just got a 1961 C15 which runs Ok but max speed is only 50mph.
I have no experience of bike maintenance and would welcome any ideas on how to improve the speed.
