Hi,

Now there's and idea.  Having trouble kick starting your bike?  Fit a hand start.  Levers come in various sizes from 0.5 meters to the deluxe folding 1.5 meter version.

Dave.

as I had a customer with a pair of LE's, the Valiant was a sportier looking bike compared to the Noddy bike. the Hall generator was a pain to get in and service and set the timing. the water works were a bit special too. on tickover it was a bit like the BMW;s where it took a bit of getting used to pumping from side to side. one I had to work on had the electrics submerged during one of the local floods, as not designed for underwater use it was probably in the worst place to put them.

Totally non Beesa.

Barford. who made garden tractors in the long ago, fitted a villiers engine with a hand lever start. Strange I was only mulling it over a couple of days ago and now this comes up. Ironic???

Nothing else to do for a couple of days so I'll have a look at the system.

I imagine parts availability for the Valiant is almost zero.
