exhaust bends arrived this morning, a couple of hours in the garage tonight and i have a high level pipe [they are discontinued now] once i got my head round the twist in the u bend all was dandy. just needs extending and some sort of silencer building into it
dropped in to the motorcycle museum while i was up that direction last weekend
no camera but there is a ton of great stuff up there. including no les than 3 twin-engine bikes [hog slayer / pegasus & this lovely enfield] took a couple or 3 snaps on the phone but they are pretty poor shots. still... lovely machines though
i NEED a jacket like this... well beyond my daubing skills but man - way too cool - stolen from the Vintagent blog
having Scarlett visit the other week got me inspired and thinking about digging out some of the old brushes from art college days and getting a couple of tins of oneshot.... well the oneshot arrived on wednesday so i had a crack at it - this is only a first attempt but its really satisfying to do. pretty chuffed for a first throw at it
ol' scratch is the panther m120 that will be for sale when its done
the BSA that was posted stolen earlier has been recovered - happy days, not too often theres a good outcome like that on these things. just a number plate and light wrecked by the sounds of things.
just cracked open one of the new motors i got the other week. this will be the first hot panther lump that we build to test the theories on. i need to sort some external oiling and a few odds and sods so we were just having a poke and point at it after working on other things. dont you just love that smell of stale oil - its like cat piss - horrible. but the good news is the internals look to be in good shape. on this side at least.
just helping spread the word...
This bike was owned by the same person for over 20 years but some scrote stole it last night... keep an eye out for this bike or any A7 parts being advertised... any info please contact me
The bike details are Reg TSL 120,
engine number CA7 4727
frame GA7 6363
TLS front brake, alloy rims, alloy head.
so this is why custom bikes get a bad rep i guess....
took this off a bike im stripping down at the minute. this is what was holding the brake anchor and cylinder!
it found its way to the bin pretty fast.
