...and it doesn't say much for the TLS brake the 190 replaced!

Yeah, good thing that oil slick is gone. Hope that wasn't the cause of the major smashup. http://www.britbike.com/forums/images/icons/default/laugh.gifhttp://www.britbike.com/forums/images/icons/default/laugh.gifhttp://www.britbike.com/forums/images/icons/default/laugh.gif

Still haven't mastered those emodicons. Seriously DD, sweet ride. Those 190 brakes work really well with a little fiddling.

Yeah, nice oil slick but that was from my Dad's Austin Maxi 1750(classic British Leyland car, not), so is the massive 'drip' tray that can be seen in the first photo lurking on the garage floor, made from a large round Dunlop aluminium tyre sign, which had been beaten around the edge to form a nice curved lip to stop the flow! grin

Lotus, you need to add the img codes. it needs to have [img] before and [/img] after.
click the the quote tab under Jons post to see what it should look like.


When given the choice between two evils I picked the one I haven't tried before

Lotusmark,

Here is a screenshot of a post/reply window. After you copy the image address you then click on the button that the red arrow is pointing toward and it will show text such as insert a non floating image, which is the one you want to use, click on that and it will open a small window that asks for you to paste your image address into. As shel pointed out, it will put [img] and [/img] before and after the image address or URL.

Handling is very good, I have upgraded to bronze bushes in the swing arm, Eddie Dow type damper in the fork with progressive springs, the brakes are great, and its faster than my A65, Phil Pearsons claims that his own 600 cc has 48bhp on the rear wheel. I have never tested mine but I have no reason to belive different

Good looking bike Per, The clip-ons on your bike look a bit different (higher) than on my Goldie.
What type are these ? can you post a more detailed picture ?
The look more comfortable than the stock items anyway.

Yes they are higher than standard, I am old enough to take considerations to my hurting back.

They are Tarozzi semi high adjustables. I got them here:

I belive they are 19"*WM2 (1,85") with 100/90x19 Bridgestone BT45 at front
and 18"*WM3 (2,15) with a 110/70x18 Avon AM22 (front fitment) Racing Compound, (secondhand from a racing friend who uses them on the front on his 1980 TZ500 four), wornout on the side but plenty of tread in the middle where I use it most of th time. They dont last long, but they are for free... The /70 profile does not look right on the bike, the profile is to low, I prefere the /90 profile..

Both rims are Morad alloy from Central wheels

If I should fit new rim today I would probably use WM4 (2,5")at the rear.
The tire combination I am running now is not ideal as the rear is much more stickier than the front, I usually run BT45 110/90x18 at the rear, they are excelent tires.


PS Dont tell the purist about this.... blush
