Re: pics of the '69 project

Cheers for the offer Mark but I'm looking more at the traditional type. Is should be right from this point but if not, I will be re-posting.

Re: pics of the '69 project

Hi again everyone, Well the bike is on its final leg of completion prior to attempting to get the RWC. I've decided to use a speedo on it but I'm not sure how to go about getting everything married up to work. What I think I need to know is based on the pics that accompany this string, what kind of ...

Re: Brake/clutch outside sheath on cable

Further to the cable question which I might add is now all sorted, other than a lead ball end on the cable or something similar, is there a suitable cable end device that's more mechanically driven to create an end stop as opposed to the lead ball or soldered end?

Re: Brake/clutch outside sheath on cable

Cheers again Prof for the advice. I saw the mechanic today and he's actually got an outer sheath that is smaller but it accepts my inner cable with no issue. For now I'll run with it. I was a little concerned with my inner cable being too tight but it does seem to run OK through it. Once again thank...

Re: Brake/clutch outside sheath on cable

Cheers Prof. I'll get back to you with dimensions. When I first got it, it had no ferrals (?) on the ends of the outer sheath. It does fit nearly into a receiving housing which is part of the brake assembly at both ends but my mechanic was insistent that I use ferrals on the ends. In my eyes the hou...

Brake/clutch outside sheath on cable

Hi again,
Can anyone suggest where I may be able to buy the outside sheathing for a brake cable?
For one reasons or another, the one I have is to short by about 50mm. The inner cable is fine with length, just the outside sheath is too short.
It's 9mm in diameter.
Cheers

Re: pics of the '69 project

I had the exhaust made at Eastern Exhaust. (at least I think that's what they are called. I can look into it if you like.) They are located on Scoresby Rd , Bayswater just up from the corner of Mountain Hwy. As for chroming, I had the rims, spokes and springer chromed at Vinnies in Dandenong. Cost w...

Re: Battery Size Question

It shouldn't be a big issue. We run 2 x 12 in series on the fire panels. Their charge voltage is around 27.5 volts as a norm.
Am I correct in assuming the only reason to have a heavier duty battery would be because of the current draw with an electric start?

Battery Size Question

It's time to get myself a new battery. What I'm wondering is can I use a smaller sealed battery like ones found in security panels and fire panels? The ones I use in the fire industry are 12v7Ah and bigger. I'm thinking as I have no electric start on the bike and all I'm really running is the brake ...

Re: Amal vs Amal Burlen

After researching and taking everyone's thoughts into account, I've decided to go with the 900 Premium series. All reports seem positive with these carbs. Thanks again for all the input. If they fail you'll be the first to know.
Cheers again until the next question.
