Recommended Posts

Hi Guys 

Picked the Villiers 10e engine on weekend. my first villiers engine.  

Which is suitable Frame for this engine.  Francis Barnnet , James , Cotton , Dot  ? , i think bantam frame will too much of work. ?

just thinking if i get some rolling frame want to build trials bike ..  I heard the Villiers 10e engine used in Cotton starmaker and they it convert to 250cc or greeve not sure. 

Any advise/suggestion.

Regards

Very neat work . Good choice. i like it ,  budget is low as rising the family .. 

 

A Greeves frame could be a good choice for your Villiers engine.

Sorry to be a prat, but Im sure the engine you,ve got isn,t what you think. The bottom end is 9,10 or 11e, but the cylinder 8e, totally different. Good luck.

Do not dismiss it, it looks to have a 4 speed gearbox, you should find a barrel, head and piston ok so it might yet come good. If you are not too far from Villiers Services take it to them they will tell you what you have.

No names, no pack drill - but here is a warning message taken from our current digital magazine.

I have seen (no better than that - I have examples in my archive) of works BSA C15T and also Victors, Cotton Starmakers, works AJS, replica AJS/Matchless suffering from precisely the same malady.

I have NEVER seen, nor ever heard of, anybody managing to break a Greeves alloy beam frame - in my own case I had a Trigreeves with a 650cc tuned motor in a Greeves alloy beam framed special that withstood everything I could give it when I had a more than ample body weight for the average rider..........

What is more - they are nice and light..............

Only once seen a broken Greeves frame before and that was halfway along the down member.

But Greeves aluminium frames are getting quite old so may be suffering from degradation/brittleness in the mounting areas. They look dam strong and no doubt are but need careful checking, just like alloy wheels on both bikes and cars. Same thing happens to scooter frames as to your bike (just for interest) the older they are the more likely they are to snap.
