The Star and Garter / Re: Pub gardens open next week

Only 40 % of pubs are going to open as many with small beer gardens and they can't make a profit. The pubs that are opening will be rammed with younger people. Still, we are getting there.

Water will neutralise any acid.

I suspect those sneaky primary circuits that no one can find till they have seen them on Youtube being cleaned properly.

I think it will corrode the wires.

Considering buying one of these, are there any issues I should consider. Generic issues and spares problems. Worked on A10's and A65 without problems. Thank you.

I put a new clutch in mine a few years ago, light as a feather. Two fingered clutch from then on. Must be your set up Mike.

The Star and Garter / DVLA Woes.
« on: 29 March, 2021, 16:24:19 »
My old machine was first registered on 31st December 1963 according to the DVLA MOT search and it is an "A' Suffix. The Special Notes Section of the V5 states Declared Manufactured 1963. According to the Vehicle Details on the next page it is shown as Date of First Registration 15.08.1997. I think the bike fell off of the DVLA data-base and was examined and re-registered. So how does the DVLA have one date on their MOT data base and another date 30 odd years later on the V5. Do I write them a letter or is there a form to challenge this.
Thank you.

Looked on Youtube, some people are using JB Weld. I have started looking for a welder. Thanks for reply.

The Star and Garter / Aluminium Fuel tank leak.
« on: 03 March, 2021, 15:29:45 »
I have just got hold of an aluminium petrol tank. It had been welded on a bottom seam but never tested. The new weld has held petrol four several days. I tipped the tank to the opposite un-repared side and have noticed a pin hole which is barely breathing fuel, never the less it is a leak on a welded right angle seam. Would a liquid seal like POR15 resolve this pin hole. The tank is otherwise dent free and well worth keeping. Tank is from the 70's. Thanks.

I have a friendly airfield nearby and buy Avgas 100 octane. Lasts much longer than green and the bikes love it.

Would a nice new piece of heat shrink replace it. The engine can warm it up for shrinking a bit.

A 2 KW fan heater will make all the difference, you can direct the heat. Oil filled rads are a waste of time.
