Hi, I'm new here
« on: 07.08. 2008 10:06 »
Hello there.

 I thought I'd better post something and introduce myself, although I already recognise a few names already from other forums.

.  I bought my A10 in '89 as a running wreck and its existed in all manner of guises over that time. I guess its grown up with me.

It's a bit of a mongrel A7ss frame, Road Rocket motor, A65 primary drive, clutch and front brake, B31rod operated back brake and swinging arm..




I'm looking forward to taking part in this forum.
Currently I'm playing about with an induction bias gasket and carb jetting just now.

Cheers,
Tombeau

Hello, and welcome, thanks for the pictures. Hope you will find the forum helpfull. The a10 'victor' looks good (made me think you got the ideas from b44 http://www.classicmotorcycles.org.uk/bikemuseum/images/bsa/bsa_1970_b44vs_victor_441cc.jpg )

Good of you to join us Tombeau... I'd imagine thats an interesting bike to ride, love the colour of the fuel tank, I do remember seeing the bike... because of the tank colour, on the Internet somewhere. Good luck with your Induction Bios fitting, there has been much writtern up here on the forum in various threads.

Cheers LJ,
There seem to be a lot of guys who really know their stuff here.

I was getting one brown plug and one white plug, fitted the induction bias gasket and got two white *eek*
but thats a result I can work with...hopefully.

Well thank you Tombeau!

Hi Tombeau,
Welcome to the forum. What part of Scotland do you come from? How does Finland compare? The building behind the bike looks similar to my new timber garage but I suppose that's not surprising as the garage is a kit imported from Scandinavia.
