Silly question? TOOLS!
« on: 06 March, 2021, 12:31:06 »
Hello folks

Before I start work when the better weather comes (if?), I ought to get equipped wth decent tools for my late model Starfire. So to that end,for the fasteners on the bike, I'll need sockets, and combo spanners, maybe ring spanners- thing is, are they Whitworth, AF, a mix of these and others? Or something arcane and unusual? Numpty needs to know!
Elementary to a lot of you on here, so excuse my ignorance, it's well over 40 years since I had B50 Cheney and CCMs to fiddle with :-\
Thanks everyone.
If it ain't broke- fix it 'til it is!!

A/F and Whitworth spanners and sockets.  It's likely to have UNF and BS Cycle thread fasteners.
