I will be at the Wiltshire branch club stand on the Sunday or helping out with the marshalling in the arena or parking duties.
Prior to that from the Friday look out for a Chasson  Allegro 96 motor home reg WA08NEJ will probably have a Wiltshire branch banner across it.
I am a handsome chap with quite a receding hairline a distinguishing beard around the chin and a slightly pronounced stomach.
If you still do not recognise me just ask any one most know me

Richard... Here are the measurements for the sidecar front down tube. Needs to be these measurements OR longer!

Wicksteed Park... Not sure what bike I'll be on yet, one of the A10s or M21? I'll likely be wearing a black BSA baseball cap too and brown well worn leather American police bike jacket.

See you there, fingers crossed for good weather!

I'll also be at Wicksteed Park and will be camping for the weekend.  Look out for a grotty green Alternator Model B31 (Reg No. 25 CUP) with light green Craven Dolomite panniers covered in rally stickers and introduce yourselves.  It's always good to put a face to a name!! 

Lawrence....are you there for the weekend or just the Sunday?  Let me know and I will meet up with you.

Most definitely will be there on the Sunday! Not sure if I'm taking a tent Saturday though, it's not that far for me to travel and there is a bit of a classic bike show locally which I may go to.

But yes... Will see you there sometime!

I know this is a long shot, but does anyone who's going to wickstead on Sunday have a spare front wheel spindle for a cast iron full width 8 inch hub they might want to sell ?

cash waiting...

Andy... No can do, thought I had one but seems now that I used it for my blue A10 when I fitted the new wheels last year. I had changed from a 7" up to an 8" hub with remarkable difference in braking (Thanks again to ManorMike for his spare hub!)

The spindle I had was everso slightly worn (came off the red A10, false economy really but I was skint at the time) and has worn moreso over the last year. There is only a one millimeter rock of the wheel top and bottom, rocking with wheel off the ground. I need to replace the spindle and probably the bearings too. I've just looked at my reciept for the spindle that I replaced July 07 on my red A10 and this was about £26 at that time from C&D. Draganfly also have them at about £27 I think you'd be better off getting a new one as the slightest wear will give your bike back end the snakey feeling, you probably already know this... I'll be doing mine in the next week or two.

Well had a great weekend I never seem to learn *sad2* I always seem to have a sore head the morning after, never happens at home! Met up with LJ,Nick,Beezageeza (I have forgotten your name already)was it Andy? or was that another person *dunno*? someone was with Dianne (would not forget that name), sorry about not being with it but had a sore head and a very bad back,it just went saturday pm putting up our winning branch stand branch funs £100 better of now. *smile*
just in case I have forgotten anyone I would add that I do seem to have short term memory problems, but give me a couple of years and it may all sink in I always recognise LJ now.
Thanks to all
Richard
