I thought this one should win some sort of award:

M23 inner gearbox cover. Note the parting line running approximately up the middle of the photo and the irregularly spaced circles. On the other side is a 1/6" steel plate that was used to rivet the two broken halves of the cover together. Pretty impressive bodgery if you ask me.

I think that we will need a new category........ "IT WORKED !!"

The fellow that did that cover plate didn't have no stink'in Heliarc Thing-a-mabob. So the tried and true rivet fix was used, and I guess IT WORKED! Not pretty, but got the job done. Did it leak?

I'm going to strip, repair and paint this frame someday but the bike runs so well I hate to take it down. Maybe next winter.

I'm not going to explain. It hurts to much...

Don't worry, this is three years ago. She's fully recovered now.

I'm thinking this picture should come with every anti-wetsump valve.

Not buggered exactly... I was looking for a spare primary cover, and a neighbor of mine, an old timer who had a number of old bikes lying around, showed me this, still attached to a bike, lying on its side in the weeds:

Apparently, aluminum is not always "forever".

I took the cover anyway, to save for just such an occasion.

Hey Eric, when you cut those off would send them to me? The clip-ons I just put on my Trident contact the tank and those look like just what I need. laughing

An anti-wetsump valve was not the cause.

And I was really hoping the engine wouldn't turn over because of stuck rings shocked

If you want to see more "boogered" parts, just keep watching the
BSA and Triumph eBay listings, under "frames."

Not a bike part but it is truly knackered

A friend of mine was driving along his field to his woods last night and heard a thump, turned around and saw his spare tire laying in the field. He thought the tire hoist had broke. The hoist was still intact but the center of the rim was still hanging from it.

Ok, here's a fun one: I buy a motor, it's supposed to be an A65...... so I count the cyclinder fins, and it checks out,..HAH!
There is always a way to get hood-winked...........

Imagine-or-remember, you're 16, or maybe not. You have a bike that won't run, but you will try anything to change THAT! I visualize a kid with his Dad's drill motor, and a grinding stone, hopping all over the place,.... but it did RUN!!!

A50 head, hogged out to fit an A65 motor.

Look close, and you can see where the piston was crushing the carbon!

I live in northern Illinois, "snow country."
I drive used pickup trucks as my regular vehicles.
People wonder why I always remove the spare tire from
under the truck and mount it up in the truck bed.

Shel's photos show why. I have cut up old trucks in which
the spare was still under there....or what WAS LEFT of the spare.
The tire was rotten, and the wheel rusted beyond use.
Seems prior owners never used it, never checked it, or
forgot about it.

Where I carry it, I can check the tire pressure, the condition of the tire and wheel, and never have to lay on by back, under the truck, in rain, slush or snow, to get to it if I need it.
