  1. The vehicles are usually Ok, but axis uniforms is "not done" Cheers, Lex
  2. John, this one: "dkw nz and rt serie WW2" Cannot seem to post the link here, but copy and paste, you'll have to become a member though. Cheers, Lex ps, Alex Smittens on FB.
  3. Ok, just found this on Facebook, not strictly motorcycles, but still….. Start is outside Carentan. Cheers, Lex
  4. Just replied on the Kradrider page, and have seen a big group with German bikes in the past too, but think they're all French? they only do their own French forums etc, never much on English speaking forums etc. A shame really, but 80% just cannot speak anything else than French. Cheers, Lex
  5. Yes, and Martyn doesn't like the quality of their parts..... he makes his own, usually cheaper too. Cheers, Lex
  6. Martyn Bratby still does very good work, takes some time, but worth the wait, no email or computer, Ron will have his phone number handy? below a carby he did for me. Cheers, Lex
  7. Very nice Jan!! and I've seen him in action with the english wheel, even removed dents out of my Norton B4 sidecar mudguard!! keep up the good work!! Cheers, Lex
  8. Just found out the front wheel on the WD-C is Thriumph Speed Twin!! this bike is getting cheaper by the month! Cheers, Lex
  9. Hi all, While scanning the last of the Matchless motorcycle Key Cards, I came across an odd one, and thought I'd share it here aswell as on Facebook, would be nice if someone's Austin was on here! Cheers, Lex
  10. Wow, wouldn't mind one of those!! and I had the radiator badge for a long time. (on my 1939 model 704S) Also a period picture. Cheers, Lex
  11. Regarding repro's, the above Dutch seller also had a so called "Flea" for sale, with a bogus story, and high price, but the fact was, it wasn't even a Flea!! it was a Swedish NV Bolagen, a Royal Enfield engined postwar bike, I only have the pictures from before they painted it green, but the frame, forks, wheels etc. are very different ! Hope nobody bought it, as that was a nasty piece of conwork! Cheers, Lex
  12. Ok, we'll see!! have fun tomorrow! don't forget the rubbers!! Rob is ever so slow. Cheers, Lex
  13. No Ron, it's a Hungarian calender, so don't know who she is?? you should have her telephone number, and inside leg mesurements for sure??? Anyway, only a Hardley Ablesone….. Cheers, Lex
  14. Hahaha, it's a Dutch number plate, but don't know the gal??, will ask on some dutch forums!! Cheers, Lex

    Identification

    Yes, it's not 40's, it's a 1950's New-Map, with a French AMC engine in it, that was used in more makes, nothing military at all as far as I know. Hope this helps, Lex
  16. Nice progress Ron, but you can still buy the whole pillion rear grip stuff NOS in the states, think I bought it before from Rocky. Looking forward to see the bike in the flesh! do you have the contract plate too? Cheers, Lex
  17. Here the first two prototypes, needs some adjusting, but getting very close now! Cheers, Lex

    Miller tail lamp

    You're making a loss there Ron!!! Cheers, Lex
  19. Nice one Ron!!! Do you have the excellent book about this bike?? have some scans of manuals and other stuff if you need anything, sorry, bit late I know! Cheers, Lex
  20. Also well underway with the Matchless Key Cards, all scanned and halfway through putting them in an Excell file, so it can be searched on frame or C number too. Cheers, Lex
  21. Hi all, I got another bunch of sales catalogs in, mostly from the 60's and 70's will go through them this winter, and see what interesting stuff there may be. Cheers, Lex
  22. Hello Mauro, We are not ready with it yet, waiting for the last parts. I will give an update here and on Henk's forum, and Facebook, but it will take another month at least. Read about it here too: http://pub37.bravenet.com/forum/static/show.php?usernum=3155626639&frmid=16&msgid=1404458&cmd=show Thanks for the interest! Lex
  23. Finally after some years of development, we will be producing the Vokes filter elbows, for the Vokes tanktop desert airfilters. 100% like the originals, and will be working the same way.Will also have the hose, connector and period hose clamps available, maybe as a complete set. OK, there seems to be enough interest, so we will go ahead with it, price for a complete set, with hose, clamps, adaptor and the complete elbow will be around 175 euro's. So ready to fit most British makes, exept Matchless G3L, that was different. I will post pictures when the first prototypes are ready in a month or so. Cheers, Lex
  24. I can have a DXF file done, will give him a plate, but will cost something. Will measure thickness later this weekend, have NOS G3L plates somewhere too, but where?? Lex
  25. Yes, they certainly do their best, and it's not economicaly viable to make parts exactly as the originals, especially when the demand is relatively small. Lucky for me, I can always spot replica's as I've got the originals to compare to. See first Kickstarter picture, is a repro, and second are my 2 originals. Am having the Vokes elbows made at the moment, and I know it's a nightmare to get things right! (will make a seperate post here about them) Lex
