  1. Hi Guys

    @Charlie

    can you please explain , how you use Jialing JH125L wheel and this wheel can used in the same way on c15.

  2. @aawil 

    I like you ideas .. I am doing my first trials project ( c15 ). and successfully started my midlife crisis.

    I have a question , if someone is using bantam/tiger cub hub (40 spokes holes) with Jap rim .( 36  spoke holes )

    so you will leave 4 spokes holes empty on hub or you will re-arrange spoke hole distance on hub to make them 36 ..? if you can share some pictures that will be easy to understand.

     

    Thanks and Regards

     

     I apologize i didn't read the the message well and didnt know early hub e.g bantam d1 hub came with 36 spokes. holes , still interested to see the brake arrangement using d1 hub or early hub.  :wall:

  4. Hi Guys 

     

    I have C15 distributor engine .Is BSA C15 kickstart spindle/Quadrant interchangeable with Tiger cub T20.. I am missing kickstart at the moment. I have some friends who might have T20 kickstart 

     

    I was googling around found the below ebay item .. 

    111578488882 ,( BSA Triumph 57-1279 40-3022 75-3121 C15 T20 Kickstart Quadrant NOS )

     

    they seem to be interchangeable , please advise.

  6. Hi guys

     

    I started to build Pre-65 trails bike. when started to buy things, soon realize it costly stuff and i cannot continue , now trying to build C15 green leaner :(

    cost is increasing very fast. i believe may be after 20-25 years. these bikes will be for elite only. Sorry no offence , its just my opinion

     

    @Charlie

    I like Broony and your Mini Super Otter. :)

  7. Hi Guys 

     

    Finally i got OSSA Mar forks for my BSA C15 project. 

    I have couple of questions,

     

    > There is oil leak from screw on fork leg. I tried to tighten it , but its thread is gone , how to fix it ?

     

    > What is easiest way to hook OSSA forks to C15 ? . Should I use C15 ball bearing race to OSSA yokes.

    or should i use C15 yokes ? and OSSA forks legs . I prefer to use OSSA yokes if possible , they seem more suitable to me.

     

    I am attaching pictures .. please advise. 

     

    Thanks in advance

     

    Cheers

  8. Thanks for reply. 

     

    I will use Ossa forks/TY wheel as suggested.

    I want to use bike on/off road. if i need bike to be Road legal.

    should i need front/back/speedometer to be working ??

    I thinking of using default 6V ignition system on the bike or should i convert it to 12V ?

    how much teeth should gearbox sprockets required. ?

    its seems diffcult to find 40 hole RIM for T20/bantam Hub , is it possible to use 36 hole Japanese RIM  ? 

     

    Your advise bring my project back on track. 

     

    Appreciate your help :-)

  9. Hi Gurus

     

    I have BSA C15 pitted forks. My friend told me to check with Industrial Hydraulic Repair company to 
    re-chrome them . I contacted them and they said they can make new fork tube.
    which might be much cheaper then re-chrome. and last longer.
     
    Is it good idea to try new fork tube ? Is it possible to increase length of fork tube , Do i need to change spring or fork internal etc.
    I was think may be i can put some spacer on top nut and keep forks internal same ? 
     
    Regards

  10. Hi Guys 

     

    I am new to Pre-65 world. Just thinking what street bikes are good candidate for converting from street bikes to Pre-65. 

     

    Good candidate in sense of below:

     

    • Expense wise ?
    • Time wise ?
    • Person skills required ?

     

    My personal experience so far with BSA C15 , it requires lot of patience and bit expense :(.

    need to change forks/hubs/wheels/tyres/ignition/sprockets/ and offcourse engine mods etc , there are lot of good products in market but expensive  . Is there any Poor's man guide to Pre-65 

     

    Cheers
