Up to today it was a 2004 Classic Bullet Enfield, which I rather enjoy riding.  But just today its actually became:


Yes, it needs a bit of work, don't they always.  I'm looking forwards to a smaller bike for a change.

Hi All,
I can't really say "my other Beeza is"  BUT!
"Another Beeza" added to the stable this week is this one  *smile* *smile*
I have fancied one of these for a long time, so when I was offered this I jumped at the chance
These ohv 350's will do probably 70mph, *eek* no brakes to speak of *eek* *eek* *eek* *eek*

Thats terrific John, a really nice bike.

I really like the OHV 350's. Just this week I bought a 29' model, I would have liked a earlier one like yours but they just dont come up for sale over here.

As you can see mine needs a lot of parts but what it there is in very good condition, I'm hoping to start on it later this year.

Hi Brian,
Nice project
As I have several projects on the go not to mention all the "customer" bikes lining up, I didnt need another!!
Yet I'm probably going to get drawn into several jobs on the L25,
I have a front wheel very similar looking to the one on your bike, and am considering rebuilding it with either a 21in or beaded edge rim and fit that for safety!!!
I like my bikes to go well but also to stop *ex*

Those dummy rim brakes are not the most effective device, some years ago I had a 25' SV and to call them brakes is very optomistic.

I dont know if anything will come of it but I am also on the trail of a 1927 350cc OHV. Flat tank but with drum brakes, will be nice if it happens. One of those situations where the current owner will never do anything with it but wont sell at this stage, I'm wearing him down though.

1994 1000S Moto Guzzi. I bought it new in 94', absolutely love it, best bike I have ever owned and as long as I am alive it will be in the shed. Dont ride it as much as I would like due to riding the BSA's as well but have managed to put 85,000 k's on it so far.

nice!

Hi Mike,
I dont have a video yet!!
I havn't got round to mastering videoing or posting videos yet
I dont think I can post videos on the forum??
Probably need to get on youtube or something???
The previous owner is in the pic I posted,
The head joint is blowing a bit so I must attack that too when time allows!!

Mike you capitalist! *smile*
Mmmmm a round case, mmmmm.
Check the Trump, I think the carb is falling off  *smile*
Very nice Commical, a noisy clutch Duck, and 1.2 Lav is too much fun for one man.
Must be hard deciding which one to flog today.

thx MR
yes and they all run (at least 4 now!) - i am almost glad i have no more space in the garage or i'd probably have another money pitt in line for the wrench!
funny thing is though the  A10 gets the most time. it's not the fastest, or most attention getting but it always starts w/ little effort, handles easy and always fun -

My dad bought me a Quickly - it definitely wasn't, consistently broke gearbox drive keys until my dad made a "special" one from the end of a file then hardened it with a blow torch then quenched in oil, so next I need a gearbox drive shaft and sprocket.
Also broke both upper front suspension legs at the top where they bolt onto the handlebars, yep both at once or very near so I'm left holding bars that are attached to the machine only by the cables.
 Vorsprung Technik   it was definitely NOT

Of course all this would have absolutely nothing to do with my attempting to get the performance (speed) out of the quickly that I would of had if dad had bought me the tiger cub that was for sale in the same shop for half the price of the Quickly.
All the best - Bill
1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco

G'day Bill,
                that sounds like my first getoff on my first motor bike. Home made similar to a Deltek with a 125 Victa motor Age 9 with girl next door on the back. The two blots holding the handle bars broke.. Down we went. 1 mile from home. she pushed I steered the forks. Think it turned her off bikes for life. I got better bikes and girls. ;D
