    Too many britbikes are pampered and not used right

    From: Bill Anderson Riverside, CA USA
    Hi Morgan,
    Too many britbikes are pampered and not used right.
    Heres a photo of how they should be used. Photo taken at El Mirage, Sept. 05. Running in the gas class A/PG his top speed that day was 123.075 mph. The Norton is a 1960 wideline with an early Weslake speedway engine. Exact year unknown, but a good guess would be sometime in the mid 70s. I've owned it since 1967 and the Weslake is the fifth engine to fill the hole.
    Keep up the good work.

    The AJS & Matchless CD

    This CD covers AJS and/or Matchless machines from 1926 almost without any breaks right through to 1967 for Parts Lists, plus fifteen workshop manuals or out-of- print service and maintenance textbooks covering much the same period. Both twins and singles are covered, and one of the workshop manuals is a Norton Matchless full-on Workshop Manual that covers ALL models (up to 650cc twins) from 1957 to 1966. The Norton-engined models are well-covered too in other works, and there are lots of lovely reproductions of sales brochures from various periods as well as some excellent histories of the Matchless marque and engine number details. This is a very complete compilation and a MUST for the AJS/Matchless enthusiast. This is a single-CD set

    Norton Fourth edition CD-Manual

    The Norton CD is now into its FOURTH EDITION, and covers not just the Commando, but all the so- called "heavy-weight" twins (as opposed to the under-400cc twins) and the "classic" singles - the ES2, the International, and of course the Manx. AND, we even have a post- Commando bike covered, with the inclusion of the workshop manual for the rotary-engine Interpol 2. There is a rebuild manual which also covers the LIGHTWEIGHT TWINS, and the Commando section has been added to with another Parts List, Stage 2 Tuning Notes for the 850, and other minor service-related matters. There is of course a complete set of factory- issued Service Sheets for the Commando (over 170 pages worth!). AND we have added a new Maintenance Manual for the 16H, Big 4, 18, & ES2 singles, and more "memorabilia". There is also a NEW Engine Data Base which covers from the 1946 Model 18 to the 1963 Atlas. This is a single-CD set.
