  1. Hello Ronnie, Seems the engine is original to the frame, I make it: Model: MKI Frame: 800 Engine:XXE907 Census number on tanks: C4659270 Contract number: S789 Your Welbike was not on my register, but have several numbers quite close. I can check on your numbers if you send me some pictures of them: http://welbike@welbike.net Cheers, Lex
  2. Sorry Tim, it says trucks over 3,5 tonnes, so is your Scout registered as a truck? It's not getting any better! Lex
  3. OK, latest news I just heard, you have to apply to all 3 links for exemptions! ridiculous, but hey, I did not invent it! Cheers, Lex
  4. OK, just found another snippet of info, foreign owners of old vehicles can ask for exemption, but has to be done beforehand! As usual in Belgium, there's 3 different language zone's so 3 email addresses, how can a ****ed up country like that ever function?? and be the seat of the EU...... Flanders: http://belastingen.vlaanderen.be/formulier-niet-belastbaarheid-kilometerheffing Wallons: https://www.exemption.sofico.org/stark-exoneration/fr/ Brussels: http://fiscaliteit.brussels/kilometerheffing-voor-vrachtwagens-2016 Cheers, Lex
  5. As above, and this is also valid for oldtimer trucks from abroad, Belgium truck owners with an oldtimer registration are exempt. This is for all trucks above 3,5 tons, worst thing, you have to hire a special box, an OBU, on board unit, that is a sort of a GPS, that records and sends out where you're driving etc. this is coupled to your credit card, and automaticly charges for what mileage you're doing! (15-30 eurocents a kilometer), failing to do so get's you a 1000 euro fine! Not a good thing! don't think they'll have a 6volts version, as all modern trucks are 24 volts. Please check it out before traveling guys! here a link in English I could find, nothing about foreign oldtimer lorries though: http://www.viapass.be/en/about-viapass/viapass-for-hgvs/ Cheers, Lex
  6. OK, no probs, thought you knew I had some, will call about the Miller thing today again,. could not get hold of him yet. Cheers, Lex
  7. I still have a bunch of original Lucas taillamps, guess I should have stored them inside!! Anyway, I sold one recently, and the guy made something nice of it, see here: Price is 30 euro's, + postage at cost. PM, or email me. Alex

    100% Miller, I had this part, but not anymore..... But the other part of the lamp I have maybe only seen once on a bike, very rare!! normally Panthers and Rudges used the very long, about 7" lamp, that goes across the number plate holder, google it, and it will come up. Cheers, Lex

    Ok, I do know in 1946 they first used up the 7" Millers, but where did they put the switch then in late 1946/1947?? Maybe they used up existing pre-war stocks for a brief period? Just found a picture from Oct/Nov 1947, and that has the switch in it already. I suppose Ron wants a Miller taillamp aswell now...... Cheers, Lex

    Ron, I really remember telling you in September, when you started all this! anyway, I have an N.O.S. shell, it's a start I think, there's no hole for a switch or Miller medallion, will email pictures. Postwar Flea's had the switch in the headlamp I think? Cheers, Lex or who was I ????? (Lex Luther!)

    My latest project

    Jan, I thought you knew this, I told Ron many months ago!! Will see if I have one left, but there wasn't one on my Royal Baby, it's a near copy of the Hasag/Bosch headlamp fitted to the DKW's of the time. But with so many people converting post war Fleas, there should be hundreds of them!!! Cheers, Lex ps, bummer about the frame!!

  15. Hello Doc, If you want I can put this out on the German bike forum. Cheers, Lex

    Only just saw this, but have been in contact with Derek, C number is same as on Key Card, but the postwar military reg. No. was 27YD84. Info from the key Cards is free, a scan of the whole side of the card (15 bikes on there, and nice to frame) is 20 pounds, not 5 Ron!! (and still a lot cheaper then a search at the RLC museum, who don't have this info anyway) Here a sample Key card; Cheers, Lex
  18. Yes, totally agree on the pictures, very irritating! maybe this could be addressed too in another section?? (about forum rules?) But I also don't like people hiding behind user names........... Cheers, Alex
  19. Thanks John! will download all that, and see what we can learn from it! Had a quick look, and from the 30.50 cubic I know they are Indian 741's and assume the 45 cubic bikes are all H-D's but could be Indian 640's in there too!! Cheers, Lex
  20. Dave, did you do anything with the info I sent?? (have more time now, to do the rest I have here) and could you provide me with the details of the various sales, as I only have the dates...... Cheers, Lex ps, any sales with the postwar Military Registration numbers mentioned, as in above scans, I have more info on! (numbers like 00YA00 etc.) Cheers, Lex
  21. Hi all, Don't know where to get this part either, do know it's a stamping that is hardened afterwards, maybe something can be made with a little thrust bearing? Have you tried: http://motorrad-stemler.de/index.htm In 2 weeks time I'll be going to a big german autojumble, I can have a look there. Cheers, Lex
  22. Niek, I can email you the clutch pages, but strongly advise to order the whole book in reprint here: http://www.wk-verlag.de/Katalog/Motorrad-Moped-Mofa-Roller/DKW/DKW-SB-KS-NZ-RT-Vorkriegsmodelle-Reparaturanleitung/A584 Book is from 1944 btw.!! an original will cost about 10 times as much now! Klaus also has reprints of all the other books, but I just have a craving for originals...... I remember what I did now, had no time to make the special tool (have the drawings) so on asking advice from a friend, used a large C-clamp, and that did the trick, to take it apart and together again. The not using of the kickstarter is in the riders manual, of the copy of this bike, "The Flying Flea", more aptly called "The Dying Flea" pm sent with link to plates. Cheers, Lex
  23. Ok, yes I have the same silencer, and remember it was a pain to get the bracket off! The kickstarter, yes always use it, when it starts slipping the clutch plates are going! they get thin, so the kickstarter slips, strangely the bike runs OK with them, and does not slip, I rode it a year or so, but then it got too bad, I changed the plates, and is perfect now. Changing the plates needs a special tool, that can be made, have all this info somewhere, but there is a big spring clip that holds it all together, taking apart is easy (use eye protection!!), but assembling, you have to compress the springs!! You can do all this with the engine in the frame, only need to remove the cover, what oil/grease are you using? the original (Ambroleum) is very difficult to obtain nowadays, I use OO-grease (double O) you can buy it anywhere. To shut off the engine, you need the right switch on the handlebars, there is the hi-lo beam, and on top the engine cut out, just a wire to the points, that connects to earth on the bars, and engine stops. This switch is not 100% original, but works for me; Will see if I have the info on the computer on the clutch, I do have the big 1942 army Maintenance manual, but not scanned (yet) more proof they were used by the army! Cheers, Lex
  24. Nice Niek!! Only the bracket of the silencer to the stay is not so good, I rewelded this on my silencer, a lot of work I know.... Cheers, Lex
  25. Hi Dave, No probs, you can email me at: welbike@welbike.net great that the bikes I posted confirm something you have!! but I don't think I have more contract info like the above. Cheers, Lex
