The Star and Garter / Refinishing/restoring wheels
« on: 20 September, 2017, 00:43:25 »
I have stock original spoked wheels on my '71 Lightning. The chrome rims are in good shape but the spokes and hubs could do with a refresh. Anyone done this? Advice?

My clutch (cable?) is VERY stiff.  Is changing a clutch cable a big job?

Any suggestions as to what I could use to match this paint?

The Star and Garter / Correct number plate format
« on: 04 July, 2017, 01:17:22 »
Hello.  I've recently purchased the second BSA Lightning I have ever owned (hence the user name).  It has been several decades since I owned my last one - a '66.  It's a '71 OIF model, very low miles and in very nice condition.  I may take it to some local shows (we have them here in Canada too!) and I'd like to get a period correct "show only" U.K. number plate made.  What I would like to know is what format would be correct for a number plate that would have been issued in the U.K. in 1971 for this bike.  For example, if the bike had been licenced in Essex in July 1971, what would the letters and numbers format be? Much appreciated!
