Re: Basket Cases

You've lost a bit of lubricant onto your paper there David but if you check the advert you will know where to go to restock.

Re: Basket Cases

Hi All, You have had some good answers. 1/2 - You're on to the actuation arm, that has been changed as Rod suggests to the James Hunt spec actuator and has been lengthened as well. Probably the single biggest improvement to the actuation of the clutch. The original arm had three ramps that the arm w...

Re: Basket Cases

It would certainly be interesting how Earles forks would effect the handling of a motorcycle as it relates to trials.

A bit of a test for you, In the below photo there are four modifications to the mechanical function of the SWM from the standard trim.

Re: Basket Cases

Re: Basket Cases

Blue Frame, Baby's got a Blue frame. Like a clean Blue Suby, colour code O2C. IMG_09681.jpg IMG_0979.jpg Rod - I'm happy with the colour, slightly darker than the original Blue but to steal a Bruce McAvaney expression it looks 'Special'. Greg - If we add 3Kg of Swingarm to the 7.7Kg of Frame we get ...

Re: Basket Cases

I am going to use the Subaru Blue and see what I think.
The metallicness part might not look right but I’ll see when it’s finished.
A bit of sparkle might make her like me more

I wonder if you emailed Pernod Ricard if they would tell you what their blue colour code is?
