I’m in full on Project Management on my stuff at the moment.

Now waiting for the rebuilt gearbox and re UJ’d shaft for my pals V50 to come back.
On the SP I’ve just paid for the generator rewind to 12V and lined up an upholsterer for the seat I’ve had to shorten to take the ‘long range’ tank.

G'day Fellas.
Nothing on the bikes but I just finished making the trophy's for my clubs show in May. About 15 hours work all up with sanding and coating the timbers and polishing the bits. Guess which one is for the "Ladies Bike"  *whistle* *dribble*

Went for a short ride this morning (solo) to give the A10 an airing and keep the oil circulating. In the last couple of days there's been snow all around Plymouth but not in Plymouth itself. I stopped to take this photo a couple of miles from home and you can see some light snow on Dartmoor in the distance.

Finished work on my pals V50 - service and with new tyres. Goes better than my, admittedly much higher mileage, example. Continued work on uglifying the SP prepping it for more serious off road use. New mudguards on, replacement alloy side panel completed and fitted on one side. Just scratching my head on fitment of the newly wound 12V generator.

So my riding was limited to a couple of test laps of the block on my pals bike.

A10 languishes now since the rocker box resealing of the other week. I've not even started it since that was done. And it won't be going out on any salt. It could do with a wash and a dry and a light oiling over all of the bright work mind.

Finally, but finally got the Star Twin back in one piece this morning. Had the bright idea to fit a new gearbox sprocket before Christmas but didn't realise just what that involved. Or had just forgotten. So it has a new chain and sprockets, new fork seals and a recon magneto not to mention the usual winter servicing jobs. Should be ok for the summer now. Of course the winter job was to fit new piston rings but that can wait until next winter. Next job is to polish up the A10 for its appearance at the Scottish Bike Show next month.

Had a look at the Flash, fuel pipe connector to tap still leaking, it's a conical taper thing so pipe tape or some fine grinding paste and mate them together - I'll dwell on it for a while
All the best - Bill
1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping

G'day Fellas.
The new dynamo belts (three spares) arrived for the A7 plunger. Thanks for reminding me of Pies duTch. Only took about half an hour to fit. Been two months since I rode her so a quick test ride to the Club for a (OK more than a!) beer. Everything worked and was a pleasure to ride. I luv the old girl.
Cheers

Brilliant Feb day, got bike out, drained off the sump (rare wet sumping issue), pumped up the tyres checked the oils and plugs, took tape off the filler cap (to cover hole, keep petrol fresh??), primed her up, started first kick and sounds fantastic.  Nice day tomorrow, ride planned, can't wait!!!! *smile* *smile* *smile*

Been spraying the Morini 'long range' tank that I'm fitting to my SP off roader project.
