  1. Hi Guys I have no shed at the moment. I have Honda TL125/Kawasaki F11 project. i have parked the bikes for winter in my friend half open storage. they started to rust badly. how to save/protect chrome forks leg/wheels your ideas and thoughts are welcome My ideas > Use some sort of temporary paint may be and that can be removed later , when i re-commission the bike ?? > Grease ? > WD40 ? what else can be done. your ideas and thoughts ?

  2. @scifi I like WW2 bikes Norton 16H , M20/Ariel WNG/RE Model C etc i wish i can born in 1940s ?
  3. @Scifi I agreed . i have seen the some early videos . there is no doubt the Britain is the pioneers of this sport. vintage bikes all have bit of character, which i fell in love with. we are loosing that. i guess. in few years time we will be hopping on similar looking electric bikes only .. no sound no joy for me .. sorry thats my own opinion

  20. i think in 5-10 years 3D printing will mature and cheap and i will print off my favorite motorcycles without running the factory
  21. i might be more biased towards older bikes. but i still believe olders bikes were different from ground up ( frame, engine , sounds ) were distinctive , FB and james shared Villiers engine i agree everyone have its own taste and liking , and i respect that.
  22. I mean to say if they will be production again. i agree the Twinshock have good turnout , but their prices are increasing rapidly and becoming collectible items.
  23. Hi Will twinhocks bikes will come back ?. I love the older british bikes since childhood i can see lot of British manufactures are making the bikes again ( Triumph, Norton Brough Superior etc ) , i like the newer models .. but they are missing the character , most of them look the same. Sorry my opinion only. Regards
  24. Thanks for all your suggestions/ideas . @turbohead very impressive work. how to make tank pattern first from wood block . ?
  25. Hi guys I was looking for affordable alloy petrol tank for royal enfield bullet project i dont mind ordering it from any part of world as long as it reach my dirty hands. Any idea ? Regards
