Re: Norton Model 99

Can't see any photos...anyhow, Its very hard to even guess at a value when I don't know your local market. Around here a price like that would be pretty reasonable for a fair-good example.

Re: 1955 AJS project

I don't think I've ever seen a Monarch in real life. Cool machine...650 I think. I helped a good buddy of mine with his 600AJS a year or so before I got my project on the go...it was a nice machine,...

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

Re: Norton Model 99

I was able to finally bring the the boss home today...she is weak and wobbly on her feet, but is still keeping me on the straight and narrow. :D I'll have to take a short hiatus from tinkering with...

Re: Norton Model 99

LOL! Don't have to disassemble a thing, it slides right in there like a you-know-what in a sunday-school teacher. :D

Re: Norton Model 99

They do make ones for the Commando's, but I don't know if they make them thin enough to fit between the carbs and oil tank...and the carbs are mounted so close together that the regular offset...

Re: Ideas? 70 stock Bonneville oil filter location/type

I've seen the smaller filters mounted vertically under the oil tank....very hard to notice.
Personally, I'm a big fan of just changing the oil 'often'.

Re: 1957 Thunderbird project, first post! (after intro)

Damn, I'm envoius! It's the same age as me...I always thought the '57 was a swing arm bike, but they may have made exceptions. It would make a great home for an old sprung hub I have had in storage...

Got a few more things done since the last posting. Straghtened and polished the front fender struts, then got the front and rear fenders in place. Straightened out most of the kinks in the number...

Re: Norton Model 99

There ought to be a 'like button' to click. I agree, the straighter, the better is what they always say, but I'm then again, I'm tuning for reliability and low to mid range rather than raw power...

Re: Norton Model 99

I think the original idea was to give the inconing air/ fuel charge a straighter shot at the intake valve, but I've always questioned whether the carb could atomize the fuel properly when it's...

Re: Norton Model 99

The carbs and manifolds are missing from this project, so I thought it would be fun to make my own. I don't like the way the carbs sit at about an 18 degree angle on the engine, so I thought I would...

Not what I'll be going for on this build, but I have done stuff like this since the mid 1970's. Actually, this style of machine is usually less costly to build than a restoration, unless...
