Hi all, just dropped hubs of at Devon rim co, the original rims had" wm 2 18 Jones " stamped on them and I assumed that meant 18" rims, the chap at Devon thought they should be 19" on getting home I measured the old ones and from outside to outside they measure 19" anyone throw some light on this, cheers Dave.

Anybody know if you can get the four elongated nuts that hold the rear sprocket on in stainless steel?

 Hi, does anyone know of a reliable source for silent block bushes I've heard one or two horror stories concerning sizes so would like to go somewhere recommend, cheers, Dave.

Hi all, starting to get a few bits and pieces together now, looking at starting a bit of assembly soon,although on occasion it's been one step forward two back anyway I've had the side panels stripped and they've come back nice bare metal,one or two small dents and a bit of rust,I'm not capable of doing the paintwork to a high enough standard so will need to get them done professionally. The tank will need the same treatment but first I thought I'd ask is there a procedure I should follow with the tank and should I do anything to the side panels to protect or prepare them until I'm ready to get all of the paintwork done, also if there are any recommendations for the work in the west Midlands region I'd be very interested, cheers Dave Mitchell.

Evening all, more advice required I'm afraid, have built the front forks only to find one side has no circling grove, anyone throw any light on that? Also rear hub,cleaned everything up, wire brushed the sprocket back to bare metal and not quite sure of what Finnish would be best, open to suggestions....

Firstly thanks to everyone for the advice on getting the bike registered,especially Steve Foden,I received a v5 with the original reg no a couple of weeks back, well chuffed I have to say.
    The frame and other bits are back from powder coating and assembly about to start, I read in the manual that fitting new  bushes into the swinging arm should be done by a specialist, is this the case, or have things changed since this manual?
