I have now added a B25. Feel more 'revy' than the C15 ss, and is lower geared.
Speedo is reading about double, so looking for replacement.

Singles / B25 speedo
« on: 21 February, 2019, 16:39:21 »
I just bought a speedo cable for my new-on-the-road B25.
It is reading double the actual speed. ie 120 mph at 60.
Does that mean its the wrong speedo?
The rear wheel speedo drive is the normal 2;1

It is possible to compress the spring, without the special tool, but tricky.
I have done it, but 55 years ago.

No JAPS!
I want a BSA, as I used to ride 55 years ago.
I want the fun of working on it, getting back on the road, and no expensive spending.
I now have a B25 to add to my C15.

Very expensive, and you wont know how well it matches.

I made one for mine.
First made pattern in card.
Then cut the whole guard in one piece, in light alloy.(Rust free)
Using timber strips clapped on, I bent the top edge over.
for the curved top at the back, I had left an over size piece.
This was cut with V notches each side, to be bent down inside the main parts,
then popriveted. Sprayed black.
Did not look quite right, but no-one noticed!

Just a tap on the screwdriver with a hammer should do it.

The Star and Garter / winkers
« on: 14 February, 2019, 10:19:53 »
I have winkers on my C15.
My problem is - I tend to forget they are on, and ride away, thinking only of the road ahead.
At 80 years old, my brain is shrinking!
I thought of a solution.
Two momentary switches on the handlebar, marked L and R.
A timing circuit to hold the winker on for - say 10 seconds.

My C15 ss now runs on a 17 tooth sprocket, and 80 MPH true speed is attainable.
Checked against sat nav.
