The triple forum

Got it back together and torqued down. Set the valves and didn't hear that ugly thwack when a push rod comes off its rocker.
The geometry looks good with just the gaskets from Big D. thumbsup
My gasket set did not include the circular gaskets under the bottom cups, so I cut my own. Only starting the engine will tell if it's oil tight.

Came across this pic, anyone know what it is ?

Are bolt-up swingarm rear subframes factory, or has someone cobbled this together ?
Gordon May's Enfield bible shows an "army 350" in similar guise, so were more variants made ??

I will be there. Look for a 55 Blackbird, yellow 70 S model, my Dad's 58 and an unfinished 61 T120 (though I tried). Hoping to be there all 3 days if business allows.

I also like that Hirsch sealer, it's my first choice on a metal tank. But I'm sticking with Caswell on the glass.

Thats a bold claim. !
Maybe a (very) stock Z1 900 and a slow rider ?
And a fairing on the Triumph ?

I took a (road) Rickman H*nda for a spin once, hot afternoon, in shorts and thongs (flipflops)
and at some stage I found time to look at the speedo and figured it was showing 155 mph.
(I'd never seen a speedo that far around the dial, had to find the needle !)
It had an 810 kit, and a lumpy cam.
Someone with a Rickman Kwaka, suitably worked, had seen 175 mph...
They had 3/4 fairings, sure makes a difference, the gearing was upped, a lot.
They had mag wheels too, and suitably rated tires.

Triumphs look magnificent, but not in the ball park for that sort of performance ??

This will be, thanks to MM's efforts, the real answer to the question - not whether the 2 stroke carb can be made to work on a 4 stroke, but what the differences are between 2 and 4 stroke carb setups for the same bike.

Go to it!

There I found it in Norton and assumed that was what he was asking about...Well paint me polka dot all over. Was a strange query anyway.

If you read the small print in the brochures, some makers still offered beaded edge tyres as late as 1937, in some cases.
Usually on the lesser models though.

The battery bracket doesn't seem to have a battery in it though !
An indication it wasn't in use doing the war years ? - when bikes had to be hidden or they would be "impressed into military service".
Electric lights were pretty much an option for most makes well into the 1930s, but you are right, that might still make it a british bike in europe.

Those untapered forks springs are an oddity though. ?
The forks look quite advanced for anything in the 1920s ?
Can't help thinking its european, that name on the tank doesn't look anything British ?

That would make sense, although a bit redundant. But your post made me look at earlier dyno tests. There for ignition timing they have "___ inch fully advanced before t.d.c." So, that answers it -- F.A. is the fully advanced timing value.

In short........
The owner of the bike in my workshop says it's very good and has been on the bike for 10+ years.

Leave them as they are, that way when the seats are clapped/pocketed you can go oversize then.
Cheaper than fitting inserts.

I believe you are correct Frank. That is Cheyenne's location.

Wow, JUST noticed that! Someone planning a spam attack, or just an impatient user REALLY wanting an answer quickly?

You're one of the Green Guys, time to open an inquiry! laugh

I stand corrected Gavin. I remember Derek Wood's outfit. Didn't correlate Tony Price to that.

From notes i've read though, it was questionable that the bike was 750cc, most thought more like 900.

Bit of a weapon though, sure showed a few what the old beezers can do.

I think that the appearance of a poor fit is just that the gears are not pushed back in flush with the case, especially the one on the left. The raised teeth cast shadows that looks like a gaps.
