    A couple of weeks ago I met up with Beachcomber, who was being kind enough to borrow me a desperately needed brake caliper for my bike while I got the one I’d stripped the bleed nipple from fixed.

    This is exactly the sort of thing we had in mind in setting this club up, people helping each other to keep an ancient bike where every part short of…[Read more]

  • We’ve been thinking of adding a chatroom facility, but as there hardly ever seems to be more than one member at a time on here I wonder if it would get any use?

    Hi Ron, good to have you on board. We’re a pretty disparate group and there’s not many of us, but someday we’ll pull it all together 🙂

  • Bike status this morning – needing a little TLC.
    Bike status after TLC – completely fucked :'(

    It’s been outside all year and I’ve been spraying it with oil to try and fend off the rust. This mostly worked very well, except for the brakes, which had a different opinion.

    Just had this quoted at £380. What do the rest of you think? I’m seriously considering it.

  • She’s old, she’s ugly, but she’s still a pussycat. This tickover is barely registering on the tacho, this is what they’re capable of when set up properly, with sound inlet rubbers and balanced butterflies and air screws.

  • BSH are total knobs with as much appreciation of motorcycles as Eurovision has of music. Tossers.

  • Looks great Marko, I’m jealous. A Twin echoing through the mountains is a glorious noise, beaten only by several Twins​ 😁.

    One day we’ll get our act together and organise a tour on these lines.

    Nice one.

  • Even the ‘cooking’ version had a few quirks, usually introduced to assuage a country’s evil licensing department. Sometimes though, they were just considering their market. UK versions for instance had longer […]

    Bet this takes you back huh? Tula was allegedly male, though I’m not convinced. I’m also interested in the bike. Could that be a Lonesome™ maybe? What we were least interested in of course was Life helmets, so t […]
