The Omnibus Edition

 

Omnibus

Noun ~ a volume containing several books previously published separately

Oxford Dictionary

 

Anyone who has seen Kims CDs and DVDs over the years will know they are a wonderful collection of data for the classic-era motorcycle enthusiast, all gathered together in one place. But I have always had some material which did not fit into one of my big-name collections (BSA, Norton, Triumph) and this material was not enough on its own to devote a new DVD to.

 

As the Lucas/Amal and AJS/Matchless collections needed updating and reprinting, Kim has taken the decision to combine them into one disk, and add all the extra so-far-unpublished material he has.

 

It includes some, but not everything, on Velocette, Vincent, Royal Enfield

The collections here are not as comprehensive as those on the big-name DVDs, so read the attached list carefully before you buy, to see if it suits your needs.

 

The best way to use this List is to print a hard copy to read, you will see so much more than trying to take it in on a screen.

 

Enjoy, and many thanks

Kim

Three files making up the complete Owners Package as handed out in a sealed envelope to new owners. File “A” comprises the Maintenance Handbook for 1933-34 Series 33 AJS Models. File “B” comprises Lucas Instruction Book 171D for the Lucas Magdyno Set. File “C” comprises an AJS “Running & Oiling” Reference Card, an Instruction Sheet for the Lucas Dry-Charge Battery, and a copy of the original envelope all the above came in.

These three items are copied from pristine “originals” of the AJS New Owners Package, and together are a veritable time capsule!

Workshop 1957_64

This is a Norton Villiers Ltd workshop manual covering all AJS-Matchless singles & twins (but not the Norton-engined twins) from 1957 to 1964.

The one I copied was, according to the “rubber  stamps” on it, originally the property of Gus Khun Motors Ltd, Clapham Rd, London – now there’s a bit of history!!

 

This is a full-on workshop manual with over 100 pages, not just an owner’s handbook.

Matchless_Hartley

This is an electronic copy of a wonderful out-of-print book titled “Matchless – once the Largest British motorcycle manufacturer”, by Peter Hartley. It is a full history of the marque from 1878 to the very last G80CS in 1969, detailing models, personalities, and the racing history.

NOTE: For copyright reasons this file may only be viewed on your computer, it may not be printed.

AJ_Matchless Engine Numbers

This document was salvaged from a cleanout of the archives of a country Victoria Police Station & was used by Victoria’s police to examine citizens’ motorcycles with a view to checking registration details against engine numbers. The data base lists make and models, locations of engine numbers, and engine number ranges – just the thing for dating that machine of doubtful heritage. Covers AJS from 1946 to 1957, & Matchless from 1949 to 1956.

This was an “internal” Victoria Police” document, never intended for outside use, and is a bit “hand made”.

Everything Else

 

This section contains material I could not adequately categorise anywhere else, but there is some bloody good material here!

 

Engine Number Database

 

The information in this file was provided to me by “Peter”, and was salvaged by him from a cleanout of the archives of a country Victoria Police Station.

The information was obviously prepared for, and used, by Victoria’s police many years ago to examine citizens’ motorcycles with a view to checking registration details against engine numbers. The complete database* covers a very comprehensive range of bikes, listing little-known makes like Acme right through the alphabet to Zundapp. Some data dates back to 1926 but the most complete period covered appears to be from 1946 to 1972.

 

All the major and many minor British marques are listed!

 

The data base lists make and models, locations of engine numbers, and engine number ranges – just the thing for dating that machine of doubtful heritage.

 

The “location” columns in the charts refer to the 3 diagrams at the end, which were unfortunately of very bad quality and needed some re-doing on my part. The “originals” I copied from were themselves second-or-third generation copies of hand-typed pages but it is almost all legible, and it is priceless stuff.

The Second Book of

Lucas

The Grimoires of the Prince of Darkness

2nd printing ~ Omnibus DVD ~ 2014

 

 

 

 

Acolytes of The Book Of Lucas Use their Powerful Knowledge to Restore Lighting

to This Elderly Lady’s Norman Nippy

 

Including the Rites and Mysteries of the

lesser Deities AMAL, GIRLING, SMITHS, and others

 

Compiled by Kim The CD Man

© 2003. Revised 2014

 

Note: The Lucas Grimoires Contents List runs  from page 5 to page 17
Contents List ~ The 2nd Edition Lucas Collection

 

For those who have been attracted and captured by the dark magic of British motorcycles, The Lucas Grimoire is a treasury containing the most arcane of knowledge ~ the darkest secrets of the Prince of Darkness himself, the awe inspiring LUCAS, together with the equally-mystifying lore of his dire lieutenants  AMAL, GIRLING, and SMITHS, plus lesser deities.

 

If you have ever been frustrated by any of these diabolical entities, have spent abject hours in your workshop or  by the roadside attempting to propitiate the Gods of British motorcycles– herein are the recipes, spells, and knowledge to tap the electrical, carburation, and suspension secrets of your British motorcycle.

 

Seriously now, this is a collection of Parts Lists, Workshop Manuals, specification sheets, and other useful data, all together in one compilation for the first time. Such treasures as AMAL settings for almost all British bikes from 1933 to 1966, plus the later Concentrics, and Spare Parts lists for many of the models over the years. The Lucas files cover pretty much everything from 1936 to the 1970’s, with Parts Lists, Maintenance and Repair Manuals and Technical Data sheets, and there are SMITHS Parts Lists too which covers all the chronometric clocks and tachometer and speedo gearboxes from the 1950’s to 1960’s. I have also included data for other proprietary parts fitted to British bikes – Renolds, Girling, Champion.

 

You may have a Factory Parts and Workshop Manual for your motorcycle which covers the bike and its engine/gearbox, but does it list and illustrate all the “proprietary” electrical parts and the carburettors? Well, the “Lucas Grimoires” almost certainly will.

 

The most outstanding assistance in the compilation of this CD was given by Phil Pilgrim of Union Jack Motorcycles (Melbourne, Australia), who allowed me to copy his huge collection of Amal, Lucas, and Smiths lore. Please repay his dedication by buying your Triumph parts from Union Jack Motorcycles in Melbourne, Australia.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON PRINTING

I have found that a very few customers have had trouble printing some of the pages on some of these files, where they either do not print at all or come out as “mirror images”. This is apparently caused by some sort of conflict with some HP drivers. You can fix it by sending your files to your printer as “images”.  Or, obtain the latest printer drivers and Acrobat Reader off the net. 99.9% of customers have not encountered the problem, however. Also note, some of the pages copied were not in the best of condition, and some pages may not be absolutely perpendicular to the page edges. Sorry, can’t always be helped! My FIRST consideration is NOT to damage the old books any more than they may be already, especially as I have only borrowed them. The information therein is still OK.
