Classic Bike News

We will have a show stand in the Main Hall near the Main entrance. If you have any queries regarding engine rebuilds and Classic bike restoration services then please feel free to call at the stand. We will also have a selection of our special parts on display and for sale. We did lots of work on the engine, gearbox, wheels and paintwork. The bike sounded terrific on the open exhaust pipes. The shop has been reorganised to be easier to use and now offers a search function and ‘Deal of the Month’. More and more products are being add to the shop every week. We know that part of the fun of owning a classic bike is the little and sometimes not so little jobs that need to be done and Rick has lots of good hints and tips, but if need be we are always on hand to provide a professional, reliable service to get the job done. Ian Johnston has done a really nice job on rebuilding these two very different bikes with a little help from SRM. Looking forward to seeing them out on the road.

Aged 16 Peter bought a 10 year old Honda Express moped, secured his CBT and took to the roads riding to and from the Saturday job plus visiting family and friends. A year later the Express gave way to a Honda CG and he passed his motorcycle driving test on the second attempt. Suddenly the Honda was too slow and along came a late secondhand Kawasaki EL , which served on the daily commute to his job as a chef in a nearby hotel.

Buying a part rebuilt Kreidler Florett 50cc from the estate of the late Brian Woolley fired his restoration bug. Later scrimping and saving enabled him to acquire a handful of other machines including a sporting BSA single, the Norton 16H and a veteran Campion in varying states of dismantle, and in the case of the Norton riddled with rust. Initially dealing in parts for any older machines and the occasional cheap project, after a few years he decided to restrict his business interests to pre machines with a focus on all pre WWII motorcycles.

A chance discussion with Australian friend Chas led to Peter marketing replica inverted handlebar levers in polished stainless steel. The range now stocked has grown to include replicas of Bowden clutch levers, Best and Lloyd filler caps, Philipson Pullies, Mabon Clutches and more. Alongside this control cable making materials, moulded magneto and dynamo parts, fibre washers, rollers, loose ball bearings, rubbers and more is stocked to assist owners of veteran, vintage and older classic motorcycles and the list is continually growing.

In with support from his friends in Australia Peter began stocking replica parts for Pilgrim oil pumps. Again the list regularly grows, recent additions include plunger, indent and ball valve springs made to original specification in the UK. Using the 3D photocopying process a pattern was made of the body of an original Model W pump.

From this replica bodies are cast using the lost wax process.


Intelligibility has been dramatically improved, and their low profile design integrated nicely with the building’s architecture. It is difficult to imagine how a conventional loudspeaker could have delivered this type of performance. Flight announcements are clear, and passengers have the assurance that they can understand the message despite the background noise.

BMW frame and engine numbers on Phil Hawksleys website. Plus loads of other BMW info. If the bike is known to the DVLA, then just apply for a duplicate registration document. Failing that, it is possible to recover the original registration number under the V scheme, details of which can be had from the VMCC Library. Briefly you would need some piece of paperwork to support an application to retain the original number for your machine.

Something like the old Log Book or an old tax disc would be ideal. Another option is a certified copy of the original record from the original registering authority. To find the name of the original registration authority and where it’s archive now is, needs a bit of detective work. Note that not all registration authority records have been saved in an archive, so you may be unlucky. Firstly you need to determine the authority that originally issued your registration number, that you can find here in this PDF file.

Here’s a gadget that all bikers ought to have. We haven’t tested it yet , and the press release didn’t specify if it’s new. But what the hell?

Spare some change for the BNP? Let it not be said that here at Sump we’re afraid to tackle a little controversy. In fact, we love it, especially when it comes from the British National Party; the party that everyone loves to hate—or is that hates to love? To that end, we’ve just received a press release from BNP chairman Nick Griffin complete with an attached begging bowl seeking funds.

Fifty-two year old Griffin is already a Member of the European Parliament North West England and now he’s campaigning to seize control of the London Assembly; that august body of never-do-wells who run the political machinery underpinning one of the greatest cities on earth. Only, the way Nick’s carrying on at the moment, it looks more likely that he’s gonna find himself not in the mayors seat but in jail for stirring up some serious racial hatred at a time when tensions are higher than they’ve been in a generation.

Just check out the rhetoric: Think of the shame of the Establishment, who have ignored this systematic abuse of our innocent children and even tried to jail me for speaking out about it in two gruelling trials in Leeds Crown Court in Except that our recollection of those riots revealed an awful lot of white faces mixed up in the melee.

We don’t have a Chief Executive!!! I am now waiting for someone? I called them and asked to speak to someone regarding the DVLA. They said they would find out who and this person would call me back. Anyroadup, she said she would look into it and call me back. She did later that day shock! She had spoken to the VMCC and she thinks there may be a way forward, but she needed to speak to a colleague who is out of the office until Monday.

Lets see what happens there.

These sanctions invalidate “NLR” exports of the following commodities:

Barleycorn Engineering swan neck clip ons Seeing as I’ve now put plenty of time and alas money in to my Gold Star I thought I might as well make it comfortable to ride too. The standard clip on position just doesn’t suit me: I get on well with rear sets and flat bars but the Taylor Dow top yoke has no provision for regular handlebar clamps. A further bind with the Dow top yoke is that it comes with a different headlight bracket that pushes the clip ons further down the stanchions.

You are almost certainly going to need both, so you may as well get them ready before you start. You will probably also need some new fibre washers which fit between the tap assembly and the tank itself to make sure no petrol leaks out here either. Before fitting the new corks to my taps I did a quick measure up for future reference. Each cork seal was about 6.

The outside diameter was These measurements are with the cork fully dried out, as delivered from AMC Spares. When soaked in petrol they should hopefully! The new cork seals before installation None of these dimensions are probably too critical so long as they are in the right ball park as the corks will get squashed expanding the outer diameter and reducing the thickness when they are installed.
