Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

Cool.

I suppose that if that central nut is nearly inaccessible, it's also nearly unphotographable. I don't know BSA twins (or much else, really). If it's no great inconvenience, would you somehow...

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

Just for the pleasure of wrassling this thread a little off-topic:

Aren't you supposed to always replace rod bolts? Are they not designed to stretch, first time they're correctly torqued?

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

1967 T120TT. "The same as Evel Knievel rode at Caesar's Palace," and therefore worth the $22,195 the owner is asking for it. Yup.

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

1. 1961 XLRTT Sportster. 2. '56 Goldy (DBD34? I thought they had cast alloy primary cases). 3. Okay, not a flat tracker, but it is in a Champion frame.

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

I admire your procedure for unplugging the sludge vault. And I don't see many OIF customs I like, and I sure like that one; very tasteful & competent-looking. Purty woman, too. Thanks for showing us...

Re: Changing fork oil on my 68.. what are these bits??

Sounds insane to me too. I've always used Italian-style salad dressing (Kraft or a similarly reliable brand; don't trust the cheap dressing from Taiwan).

Separate oil tank looks nicer, too. IN MY OPINION. Ahem.

Whatever "these" are, I can't see 'em. I shall file a grievance.

Re: Norton Model 99

The rear tire looks like a TT100 (I can't remember what the front Dunlop looks like).

Goldy do you ride your old bikes pretty hard? I wouldn't mind knowing about a cheapish tire that is also...

Re: Ugly and Funny Bikes... the "Short Bus" of pic threads..

Going to the Taste Police is just asking for trouble. At least, if you have tastes like mine.

Is that pitiable Norton suspended in back, a la Softail? Looks like a rigid, but then there's the big...

Not *that* ugly. And not *that* funny. Sue me.

All day I resisted the urge to swipe this image from vft.org. I hope I get some credit for that.

Re: Harley big twins? WTF is a "little twin'? (novel)

I misunderstood your first post -- thought you were still weighing which bike to build. Your 45-so-far looks real good. The less you surround it with, the more prominent, i.e., better focused, the...

Re: i'm looking for pics of custom bikes from the 50's

Dang!

That first pic: What is going on with the heads and rocker covers? Almost looks like water jackets on the heads. (Yeah, as a matter of fact I AM half-blind; what's it to you?) Or is it just...

Re: "Identify this bike" thread no. 3,287

By golly I think you've nailed it! Pics of the RH side were easily found (since you'd provided a marque to search for), and yep, the bike in post #1 is a match for the c. 1937 Rudge Ulster -- a Manx...

"Identify this bike" thread no. 3,287

Would have added this mystery bike to an existing "please I.D." thread but, to my surprise, couldn't find any general-interest I.D. topics -- each one was concerned with a specific motorcycle.

Re: 33and 36 crankcase numbers

In the pic of Richbob's suspect '36, the B or 8 looks to my ignorant eye like an H that has been clumsily messed around with.

Re: Harley big twins? WTF is a "little twin'? (novel)

Oh man. I know how stupid "Sorry you lost nearly all of your possessions" must sound, but I'll say it anyway.

Thing about (say) a Nortoon vs. a 45" is, owning the former will make it easier to...
