Well over due for an update.
Have now done in excess of 10,000k and for the most part trouble free or with the one exception all able to be sorted on the side of the road.
The one exception was when the keyway on the alternator rotor broke, rotor sliped and then jamed and started a minute ocilation, all meant every turn the rotor hit the staor as as you all know once that happens it all turns to sh it preety quick.
Reading a Brit vintage mag couple of months ago and spied a photo of some obscure European classic war motorcycle taken at a French rally.
Had a 2 gallon (thats Imerial gallon) petrol can mounted on the front forks.
Got me to thinking with the result..............
1943 British Army amo pouch with the flap lid cut off.
Double buckle French Army officers leather belt.
Brit army webing to tie the top in
Post war Castrol Wakefield 1 quart oil bottle
Have filled it with Castrol 20W/50 Dinasour juice, stragely, well maybe not so strange as this old bugger is a bunch of miss matched parts all cobled together, the xtra weight tends to steady the front end a bit.
