Couple more late ones
« on: 31.12. 2011 22:21 »


The A10SR high in the Pyrennees.



The A10SR at the Manx GP

Sav
1961 A10SR, spent a fortune at SRM
1961 A7SS, finally the right green
2011 New addition 1937 Empire Star, twin port, high pipes. Turned out to be the most unreliable bike I have handled.
2017 finally found the liner/barrel were flexing and causing all the overheating/nipping up. Early B33 barrel fitted and it's reliable at last!

 Beauties Sav. You'd need a few main jets if you go up and down those hills. Does that beer look flat and warm. Just knocked the top off a cold frothy one or was that 10.

Just over 2100 metres and she ran fine. Cooked the grease in the front wheel bearing going too fast into the hairpins going back down!! New sealed bearings when I got home.

The beer was a 'Clean' polypin transported to the Isle of Mann from our local microbrewery at ramsgate, so proper real ale for a couple of days on the campsite, yes it's as flat as a pancake but no it was cold from freezer packs in the carton - luvly!!
