Plenty of gear to sell and a little 1940s 3T motor in to rebuild.
Had a short ride out on the A10 yesterday and its fine but so slow, currently checking the valve and ignition timing but really struggling to time the cam up as the marks on the idler dont correspond with the ones on the crank and cam wheels, any A10 experts out there ?
5.00 pm update, sat for a while and used some logic, valve timing was 2 teeth out, done, sorted, goes like a train (an old, dirty, oily train, the best kind)
The rear wheel spindle has always been a bastard on the chop, the threads are poor and all 4 nuts are worn so i am converting it to use one off a GSXR1100 to keep things simple (and ive got tons of 'em)
Neither drag bike has moved for a few weeks while i struggle for motivation.
Somewhere there is a place where you only have one bike and it is always on the road...
