  1. Waiting a reply from Kudo
  2. Venhill is the obvious answer for made up cables
  3. Any recommendations for laminated type begins and ends Cheers Ian
  4. Yes, opposite the golf course, strictly no practicing! More worries on the horizon are the building of some new houses nearby
  5. I think you have 2 choices, your local vehicle licensing centre will confirm. Fill in the forms and have a Q plate allocated. Have a recognised authority confirm the bikes origin, this would normally be the manufacturer or the importer but they may accept it from a dealer. Either way you will need to get it MOT'd using the frame number and then insured before a registration plate is allocated As an aside I've converted mine to a twin shock so it can be used in more suitable events.
  6. What a mix of bikes, even an early twin shock Aprilia. All one thing in common though, they look very purposeful.
  7. They aren't repairable. All the components are set in a resin. The same CDI was fitted to the TS185/250 air cooled range so you may be able to pick one of those up easier. I've asked Rex Caunt to do a replacement but he says it won't be possible until later next year and Electrix world haven't replied to my request yet. They aren't a brilliant unit, if you try strobing the engine the timing jumps all over the place. Also fitted to Hiro engined Armstrongs. Check the 3 pin connector for corruption first though.
  8. villiers services near Dudley can be helpful. B&S trials are just outside Mansfield so not that far from you
  9. i've used Villiers Services too, go for oversized then turn them down whist assembled to the brake plate to get the best results
  10. Chris's family have thoughtfully donated a trophy in his memory. This will probably be awarded at the Midland Classic round of the Northern British which was the last event he won.
  11. I think not. i remember the 125 bultaco and dalesman puch coming into schoolboy srambling in the early seventies and revolutionising it, or ruining a family orientated sport depending on your view point. For the smaller cc bikes the Italjet was about not long after
  12. Are those stock rims or a Thai version?
  13. I have an SL (I think) brake plate but it only has the small worm gear with it, you can have if you want it
  14. The C15 is probably a bit tall to fit in the Mont frame, and the triumph engine a bit heavy and wide. Unless you are in for the long haul try again to get the original engine going, it's probably not a huge issue and if you don't like it at least you can sell it on reasonably easily
  15. Cheers, nearly as good as being there
