  1. Two small photos located of tom riding in th 63 ssdt. I cannot use because of copyright. It clearly shows th numberplate of 32 yg and 84 the entry number of tom for this event. This number was used on the bsa tigress powered works special. Further investigation now underway to see if the logbook for my bike was used to provide a identity for the tigress powerd bike !!
  2. Hi , I have a ex tom ellis c15 i am looking for information on . It has a pink/ red scrutineering mark on the frame that we have now identified as entry number 84 in the 1963 ssdt. This was Tom u Ellis entry number and i understand he did not finish due to injury. I am tying to get any pictures of this bike and rider . We have approached various photo archives but thought it might be worth asking on here for help
  3. My c15 is left hand side headstock , see photo.
  4. It does look like a standard road frame , front tube looks bigger than c15 so I would say b40, one of my c15 road bike had a c15t engine fitted . Anything can happen in 70 years!
  5. I also have always had motorbikes of some description from a early age, never done a trial yet but will join a club next year. Soon to be 54 and last year had a stroke that took my right leg. I have recovered but now look at things differently now. So get out there and enjoy !
  6. It's more likely for mileage as insurance are hot on it . The more you do the bigger the risk and load you for it
  7. Found a picture of a bike I had 40 years ago. When I was 13 , dont know who built it ? I loved it anyway lol
  8. This is same type , 1979 ,
  9. Hi all can anyone tell me what these shocks are??
  10. Keep it up theoldstuff. You have done well to loose that much of the bike. I spoke to mick Andrew's and he put holes everywhere in components.
  11. Not that bigger job , just made a jig to drill rear shock mounts out. You can see the old mounts and they were cut off . Have got a swing arm to swop over from the home made one that's fitted. Biggest job is removing the extra bits welded round the seat tubes ect. Sam brownlee informed me they used a AR50 Kawasaki shock .l
  12. It's on a linkage but must have been direct mount at some time.
  13. This is my majesty, as you can see it's been some what altered. I personally think not for the better. It does not work . Hope you have better look with yours . I never did this and I am in the process of removing it all.
  14. Yes , it's the yam frame, the gussets are still in place and you can see the old mounts through the frame tubes . They have been cut off and dressed back.
  15. Hi all, I have been working slowly on the majesty , I need to replace the shock mounts after the original majesty ones have been chopped of when it was mono shocked. Has anyone got a picture so I can see how the welds should look. .it is the mounts through the tubes I am interested in .
