Re: Basket Cases

Yes that's why later they fitted those lovely little rotary roller thrust bearings, (I'm sure there's a technical name for them... anyway...)

Re: Basket Cases

Always good to see all sorts. Though somehow I prefer looking at the 'before' bikes... they all look different, whereas restored ones all look the same.
Or maybe it's the tempting look of a potential restoration project.

Re: Basket Cases

And the ol' lads in England used these as commuters too. Good old gear.
And on Sunday they'd be up at Canada Heights (Farningham) or somwhere, hackin' it through the mud!

Re: Wandering Tyre

Huh!!! Guy... You should have been there when this was THE LATEST THING! Talk about Hi tech. Cast aluminium front downtube?... leading link front suspension?... A bloke in our village had one, and I was a transfixed 13 year old every time it passed me! (Then I discovered Jack Kerouac and girls!!! :m...

Re: Wandering Tyre

I know it's a bit drastic, but back in the day it was not unusual to drill and fit self-tappers around the rim penetrating into the tyre bead. Wouldn't recommend it now though... particularly with 12hp of Villiers volition!
