  1. Without the exhibitors there is no show, you don’t pay at Steam Rallies, so I’ll stick to them for now, until W+P change for the better.
  2. That’s my old lorry, I bought it off Pete Gaine, I spoke to Geoff a couple of times just before he died. He had booked a day to come and see her and have a drive, sadly he died before it happened. I sold it to a guy in Essex to fund buying a family part owned Bedford OY. I still vividly remember the pain sleeping in the back and getting up and forgetting about that bloody RSJ ! 😭 this happened frequently !
  3. Did the paint stay on the exhaust ?.
  4. Good luck Steve, Ron, hopefully the weather will hold.
  5. Looking really good Steve, well done. 👍🙂
  6. I don’t know why it didn’t go more, there’s another one without the cut out with bids up to £95 so far. I missed out on the original wartime headlight, I was the under bidder 🙁 a couple of weeks ago.
  7. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F183800172971 After a lot of failures I’ve managed to win this one. 😁
  8. Count the coils on the seat springs, this photo has two more than Steve’s by the looks of it 🤔
  9. I’ve seen on some American car show that they put in a special running in oil first, I’ve not seen anything this side of the pond ?. I’ve only ever used the standard oil but changed it sooner.
  10. Brian Tillin told me the Indian made ones are quite good.
  11. I’ve seen Marks website, his prices are too much for me. 😳😀 what attracted to this one was that it is brass, I’ll get a full set one day. 🙂
  12. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F264236284190 just won this. 😃
  13. I think you and Brian are right, it would be nice to find someone with an original 46 or 47 bike to put the final nail in the coffin on this. 👍😃
  14. Ron, This is the reply I’ve just got from TOMCC, not much help I’m afraid. Graham
  15. Thanks Ron, thats what the lad said to me !. Graham.
  16. Or this one ?. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F301225940077
  17. Are the steering damper knobs the same for all Triumphs up to the 50s ?. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F142572001298 is this any good ?.
  18. Steve, buy yourself a Rothenberger gas torch with yellow gas cannister, it’s got enough power to heat up a M20 nut cherry red, so should be enough for your stand.
  19. Ron, are the cable nipples the same size for 7/8 and 1” levers ?.
  20. I’ve been looking for one myself Steve, Brian’s run out of a batch he made, and Ace Classics don’t have any either !. 🙁
