Re: Exhaust wrapping questions

I really don't want to wrap them but as I've got forward controls, my legs pass straight next to the pipes on both sides. Too close for comfort.

Re: Exhaust wrapping questions

I have a slight problem with getting them ceramiced. The dollars. Having said that I don't even know what it would cost but I've only just had them chromed and something tells me if I get them ceramiced, what I've just paid for with chroming has been a total waste of time. What is the process with c...

electrics and relays

Hi again, I'm now in the middle of wiring my bike back to ignition switch etc. As I was working on the key switch/barrell component, it literally fell apart in my hands. Spring popping out one direction, something else popping out the other etc etc. I spoke to a locksmith friend as he can get new ke...

Engine work, wheel reassembly etc were done by Bryce @ Early Triumph who I could not recommend strongly enough. He aswell as Trojan opened my eyes right up to what some people pass as engine rebuilds. As this was getting done, I was privy to sharing all the problems Bryce had with it, to fixing said...

Thanks again for everyones input. I found a place called Tsubaki in Dandenong who have an extensive range of chains. I've got a sample piece so all should be good. I was quoted approx $65 plus GST. That sounds very reasonable to me. They have the O-ring variety as well as about 5 other varieties. Pi...

Chromed grease nipples

Well I finally had the springer totally re-chromed and I've got it all back together and looking a treat. My problem is I'm having trouble locating somewhere that sells chromed grease nipples. I don't know the exact thread size but as you can imagine, they look about 1/4 inch in size. Can anyone off...

My question is, the rear tyre I have now measures 605mm in diameter. If I get a replacement tyre of the s...

Hi to all again. Just got back from the bike mechanic. My motor is almost ready for assembly All crank and piston assemblies fully balanced. Looking an absolute treat. One of the delays, which he showed me today, is the fact that somewhere in the blocks history, someone has shoved a 1/4 inch ball be...

Cheers again y'all. No worries Drew re typo. Like I said earlier, I got no idea what it was/meant but I do believe that that has all changed. I'm starting to think I should stick with a regular machined plate as opposed to CNC type. I have started looking at the earlier two companies mentioned but a...

Thanks for the input thus far guys. It is a four speed with the groove in it and the roller sliding along it. I noticed the term CNC was used when I was quoting C&C. To be frank, I don't even know what it means. It's just what my mechanic has recommended. So is it CNC or C&C and what is it exactly. ...

chasing down cam plate '69 Bonnie

Hi all

I'm trying to locate a new cam plate for 650cc '69 Bonnie. Mechanic has urged that I get one that has been C&C machined.

Can anyone recommend a starting place?

Cheers.
