A7 46-50

As a very special engine & being the forerunner of all later models, it might be right to honor it with it's own special board.

Thanks

I think that's an excellent idea... It seems that there are a lot of owners of these Long strokes joining us now.

 Good idea, I often look at answering a post only to discover it's about a bloody old long stroke. *red* *dunno*

Great idea to give the Longstroke some recognition, they are easy on the eye, and even better to ride. Cheers TC

Yes I agree with a new section for A7 Long Stroke.  They are similar but different enough to need special treatment.  After all I keep mine running with the forum's advice.

Thanks for the feedback. Board is officially open for business.
Will try to move over relevant posts from the a7\a10 engine board.
