Title: Quick replies to "Just a Picture"
Post by: RichardL on 05.10. 2015 14:59
In keeping with trying to keep "Just a Picture" (https://www.a7a10.net/forum/index.php?topic=7964.0) chat-free, this topic hopefully provides the outlet, which I need right now.

Bill Harrison - beautiful bikes, absolutely! Also, perfect use of Just a Picture.

Bill Harrison - You are definitely high on the list of those here keeping the marque alive at a high quality (that I don't pretend to approach).  (...but you will need several more if you intend to have the most.  *smile*)

Patcross,

Well, "Just A Picture" has almost worked too well. You totally went with the spirit fo the topic, but this is the first time that I recall a brand new member using it as his first post and intro to the forum.  *welcome* That is a perfect project bike. I think I'm not alone wondering how you found it, what made you look for it and whereabouts (approximately) you're located. Again, welcome, and glad you decided to join the forum.

This topic is where I (we?) respond to "Just a Picture" to keep the chat out of there. Let me say, there have been many great pictures since I last commented here. Taking nothing away from any of them, the latest from The Engineer is just stunning  with the beautiful bike sitting in the snow and a great sky above.

Bob,

Sorry if it seems that I am assuming some authority that I truly don't have. (Meaaning, I don't have any authority.) When I thought of the "Just a Picture" topic, my hope was to get a big collection of pictures of our bikes in one easily viewed place without obliging members to provide a story (which they can, and do, do elsewhere). Here is the first post in "Just a Picture" explaining the idea:

https://www.a7a10.net/forum/index.php?topic=7964.msg55981#msg55981

If you think this is not a good concept, I would be happy to start another topic called "Pictures of Bikes With Little Stories Which Are About To Become Oil Threads".  *smiley4*

Now, if I could, indeed, make rules.........  *eek* *smiley4*

Best regards,

Richard L.

Tinu,

Sooo, jealous. Best I could do today from here in the flatlands was a 20 MPH ride through the local arboretum. Www.Mortonarb.org (http://Www.Mortonarb.org) . But, when I got home I said to.myself, "Man, that's a damn fun motorcycle."

Coater87, in your latest picture I can see that you have the kickstart Cotter pin in the wrong way round, (unless you want the Kickstarter more anticlockwise than normal)
Title: Re: Quick replies to "Just a Picture"
Post by: duTch on 24.07. 2018 09:20

 Without seeing the pic, I have to say I had mine off the other day and as an experiment, I replaced it the other way which is 'Head' up and nut on the bottom/to rear; reason/logic being that may provide more surface bearing area....because even though it works fine, is a bit deformed as it was. Can post a pic later if need be...definite change in lever angle but not enough to spill my drink over *smile*

 All right you two. ;)

 Kick start cutter backwards, because that lever beats the road tar out of my exhaust pipes. It's not permanent.

 That's the correctly cranked kick start lever. $100.00 U.S. for stripping and new chrome plating. Just picked it up. *smile*

 As far as control levers go, I surely hope those are not permanent. Just cheap looking and feeling. Made by Emgo.

 I wish these bikes had 1 inch bars, it would be a lot easier to find good quality controls. But I want to say these levers were something like $50.00 for the pair, so expectations should not be too high I guess.

61 T110 Cafe and a couple of Bonnie’s (67 TT Special replica and a 68) The TT gave me a hankering for another Scrambler. A genuine one this time.

A few miles away from me there is an amazing ex-windmill. I cannot park close to it but I'll try to a picture of my bike with the mill In the background. Here is someone else's photo of it. It's called Chesterton Mill.

Strange mill GB, I wonder if it ever was a mill, or is it a Folly
Mills generally had a facility to turn the sails into the wind which meant some bit somewhere had to revolve.
So not being an expert but as they say "just saying"

Death Valley was scorching.
I think it was about 15 years ago. Here are links to my Flickr albums of the month we spent in California. It was a fabulous holiday. Yosemite was stunning!

   Just went back to the as it came in bits in the back of a van just a few short months ago. Nothing short of a miracle there. Well done indeed. Now get those brakes adjusted .......

Do you know Swarfy - the brakes work 10 times better than I expected - especially the front, and I know a lot of owners have problems with 'em.
I just 'burned' them both in over a 5 mile trip and got a good result.

Can someone help me get that fat guy off my motorcycle, or, better yet, just get that fat off the guy?

Now that is odd, the A10 is a 1960 bike and those are one of the sets of pipes I purchased (same picture and seller) and they were not even close to fitting. I will find the topic and reopen it as I would like some pictures if possible.

Modified dont bother with the pictures my previous post was in what have you done with your bike today
