Twins / Re: A50 clutch
« on: 13 June, 2017, 08:31:37 »
  Bit of a deal sorter....325 or in that region.  Suppose it is a bit like usung the electrex World electrics conversion 250 but worth every penny as water or anything bothers it... ::)  Griff

Twins / A50 clutch
« on: 09 June, 2017, 22:49:44 »
  Is it worth the cost of changing the clutch assembly on my A50 to the SRM chainless system ?  Quieter yes but any other benefits ! ! !    ::)   Griff

   Some insurance companies insist you have an M-o-T on an old bike. Though I have no doubt many steer clear of them. However for a speedier re-registration, or original reg. it is easier to get an M-o-T. Even if it is only a 'daylight running only' one. Just means you have time to get lights working as they should. No plod can't do you for riding after dark if you have proper legal lighting fitted and working. Once got pulled over riding a trials bike at night using a push bike rear and front lights and a reflector on the back mudguard. Got a rollicking but as the lamps gave the minimum illumination permitted I was allowed to continue home. .... 8)  Griff

 Yes I also returned to the UK. from previous time here. Another story ! ! !  Bikes pre 1960 do not need M-o-T or tax. Think it's 1972 for cut-off for free tax. The SORN is automatically removed when you re tax the bike. If you've brought the bike back to the UK you need to re-register it. Tax discs have been done away with for all vehicles as the DVLA use the modern idea of computers to check vehicles. Plod can trace the vehicle and slip you a ticket easier.
    Have fun on the B31... great bikes and full of character..   :D  Griff

Which BSA do you ride? / Which bike to ride ?

 The weather tells me what to ride... Nice and sunny, dry and calm sees the c12 out. Wet mucky and the chance of a Green Lane and the Bushman leaps to life. Ride-outs and longer trips it is either the B31 of A50, depends on the mood and which helmet is easiest to find... Griff  ;D

Bantam / D10 electrics

  Is it worth the expence of converting my Bantam to Electrex system (200) as the 6v generator has ceased to put any power out. Griff
