Singles / B33 dual seat
« on: 01 June, 2018, 20:33:47 »
I am having a problem with a new dual seat for my 1955 B33 (swinging arm model). The original seat isn't available to compare and it looks like the new rear seat fixings are approx 1" out of position. The mudguard and rear seat support bar are original, but seat doesn't align with the original holes . I have spoken today to Classic Bike Shop and they say that their remaining stock has the same fixing holes and that other customers haven't had any problems with the seats. I could have a bracket made to accept the offset fixings but would prefer a standard fit. Classic Bike have offered to take back the seat but that won't solve the problem if other suppliers have the same pattern item.
Has anyone else had this problem and how was it resolved.

I want to remove the toolbox twist turn locking screw to have the box painted. I can open the lid but can't remove the screw. How is the screw retained ? I can see a flat washer but no circlip or retaining but. Can anyone advise ?

The Star and Garter / Original Registration Numberplate
« on: 04 March, 2018, 14:37:20 »
Hi, l am new to the forum and would like advice re sending a request for original registration number retention to DVLC. I have a 1955 B33 which I bought nearly 50yrs ago and garaged (not taxed)since then. The bike is original but repainted by me. I have the Buff logbook but am reluctant to risk sending  it by post to DVLC. Is there an alternative to posting my documents to Swansea ?
