G'day Muskrat,

        Boy, don't you live in a great place, Lake Conjola, my wife's Great Aunt used to live at Mollymook, (that'll be a good one for our international guys), and we used to go down there quite often. I'm not really a cane toad because I was born in Sydney and I wouldn't barrack for the Maroons if you paid me, I do barrack for the Lions though. I'm a bit of a philistine, as my wife calls me, when it comes to playing with computers but thanks for the tip about posting photos as you can see I worked it out.

        I don't really know how the bike was still running but it was, albeit not very well. After it was stripped down and the problems found I fronted the guy that sold it to me and told him about the mess of the flywheel. He swore black and blue it wasn't him but I have my doubts after some of the other things I found. I'm not really complaing 'cause I got it at a good price.

        Hold your horses Dave I got there!

       Cheers Guys

Welcome to the forum.

The crank pictures  *eek* , the proof there was nothing wrong with British bikes when the left the assembly line, but lot's wrong with some owners (when they left the assembly line)  *smile*
