  1. Strange that the Canadians didn’t like the Harley wla so they came up with the wlc with the hand clutch. I wonder what they made of the Indian controls and if they ever modified them great pictures Lex steve
  2. Please keep them coming Lex, I have been trying to find any info/ photos of Indians in Northern Europe and these are the first for me steve
  3. I noticed in lexs photos the fifth one down looks like it was taken in Northern Europe, maybe Germany or Austria, this is the first time I have seen an Indian in this theatre. Is there any more info on this photo thanks steve
  4. Great picture Lex, I haven’t seen any of these photos except the last one, which shows New Zealander’s in italy thanks Steve

  12. Hi, I have never used hardener, just sprayed as is, just wiped it down with wd40 or similar and it gives a nice patina regards steve
  13. Hi, does anyone have an original tyre pump,valve and clips or a skid plate? For a 741b thanks steve
  14. Nice looking bike, mine is still under repair, is yours a runner? regards steve
  15. Some photos do exist of New Zealand despatch riders in Italy in 1944 and some Aussies using them in southern France again in 1944, so at least they saw some limited action in the war i can relax now that it wasn't Harley's that won the war 😂 Steve
  16. Hi andy i think it's not about the bsa, for me personally its finding a ww2 bike that is original as you can get, I don't want a bike that is 80% original and the rest made in China or wherever, I need to feel and touch the history, my Indian is poorly but very original and my 44 mb jeep is in a sorry state but 100% original, that's what's important to me, others may differ and that's ok i also like to run my veh's as they were built, so no modern electronics, no conversion to 12 volts etc, but that's just me, I suppose I am lucky because I have been a mechanic all my life regar
  17. As with all old bikes they are reliable if you look after them, main thing is to have a good magneto for a good spark on Brit bikes. as Ron said his is a 600 so a fair bit faster than mine but strangely when we was in Normandy his was more economical, to be honest I don't do much over forty because of the brakes, but the Indian is no better reagrsd steve
  18. Hi andy, that's really easy, I have a 1942 bsa wm20 that I have had for about 3 years, I love it. the Indian still scares me with the foot clutch and hand gear lever but I like a challenge regards steve
  19. Hi, do you have any other motorcycles? I have a classic multi bike policy, it cost about £40 to add my Indian 741 to it regards steve
  20. Hi, does anyone have a genuine rear crossmember to fit my 44 willys jeep? thanks steve
  21. Hi, I have a Lucas distributor cap looks to be nos, 400316 and rotor arm 405468. Believed to fit wartime hillman, Humber, standard vehs,i can email photos,£50 thanks steve. 07968504521
  22. That's a really great set up you have there, I would loved to have taken my wm20 but I think they wanted £24 for the honor of going! Shame because it's a great venue. Steve
  23. Hi, there is a nice barn find Enfield on car and classic, looks very nice, ref no is c959823 i have no connection to seller, just thought you guys might want to have a look. steve
  24. I agree the modern vinyl seats ruin the look of any ww2 bike, but they do turn up pretty regularly on places like epay, sometimes at ridiculous prices, but I have recently found a couple for my wm20 and it looks so much better even if it quite worn. Be careful tho because there seems to be a lot of slight variations in the size steve
