  1. Hello, ironically I have one for sale. 1942, within the last 20 of the first mk1 contract. Correct engine. Correct wheels etc etc. Where are you located? PM me if you're interested. Thanks
  2. Hello Ron, yes that's what I thought. My mate bought it from the USA (via ebay) very recently. The story was the bike was taken to the US by a returning soldier from "101st Infantry" (to quote). It was taken back in a "bomber stored in a round container". The bike came to Ian (my mate) original except tyres and Ht lead. The original tyres and ht lead were in the ebay pics but weren't in the box upon delivery and only changed for the sale. The bike is a Mk1 (very close frame no to mine) but it has, what looks like a factory fitted rear mudguard. All the other mk1 bits are there. I'm wonde
  3. Hello all, my mate has just bought a 1942 Welbike. We've had it running, but poorly. I too have a WB that runs fine (finished race to the bridge last yr). My bike's timing is set accordingly to the wksp manual ie. Piston at tbc and line flywheel Mark to line on crankcase. So on my mates bike this is what I did- wouldn't start. So I did it by when the points just open with the piston at 1/4" btdc and the two lines are miles out but it runs - not great tho'. Anybody come across this before on a welbike ? Thanks
  4. Hello, I have a 1980s Fantic twinshock trials bike that had intermittent starting issues 2-3yrs ago. Sent the stator plate and flywheel to Bradford Ignitions in Cornwall. He resound one of the coils - perfect !! Not a Wwii bike granted but he might be able to help. Bradford Ignitions 01209482223 or +447516350134, sorry I can't remember his name. Thanks, Kings.
  5. Hello Lex, triple x 350 is 1050 each, is that correct ?
  6. Hello all, proper Dunlop carrier tyres ... now there's a thing. I too would be interested in those.
  7. Hello Lex, thin wire ?? I used lock wire on my WB (I do that on Alfie's race bikes).
  8. That looks nice Ron. I used cloth covered hose, and used lock wire instead of clips. I haven't got any of the ferruel/swage ends. Ron, I possibly need help with another subject, can I please pm you ? Thanks, Kings
  9. Ok Ron, that's what it'll have. I made a copper 'curly one for the Flea today. Soldered a union and a banjo on each end. I thought the WB would have had something similar. I have some fuel tap gauze so I'll make a new tap filter ... although, thinking about it now ....as it's pressure fed the dirt, rust etc will be more likely to stay at the lowest point, ie in the tank. I think a tap filter will be sufficient. Thanks Ron.
  10. Hello Ron, my mistake... I meant from the tap to the carb. Sorry. Kings
  11. Hello everyone, Does anyone have a decent picture of an original Welbike fuel pipe please. I have used cloth covered rubber with an inline filter. Now I wish to make the proper solid metal type. Thanks all, Kingsley
  12. Hello all, thanks for the replies. It's sorted. Runs ok on a Champion plug, but not on an NGK or a Lodge. My mates Triumph trials bike is the same ??? I don't know why. Thanks again.
  13. Hello, thanks. Yes, fuel is ok. I didn't see any obvious method to move timing and I'm not in front of the bike now. It runs, sometimes, but not well. My lad rode it in Arnhem last yr and had it going well (he races motocross !!!) so I put it down to lack of compression, after a few days worth of thrashing about !!!- but it's not that. I reckon it's slipped timing or crank case seal.
  14. Hello everyone, I trying to start my Son's 1938 RT100 (98cc). If it starts it will run very lumpy (as if on choke). It has ran in the past, but not now. So last week I removed the barrel and piston- all good. Removed flywheel, removed and cleaned points and so on. Woodruff key good. All good. Nice spark. Plugs getting wet. Tried different plugs - still the same??? I'm wondering if it's a timing issue. Tomorrow I'm going to have another look. Is the timing adjustable ? Any advice please ? Thanks all, Kingsley
  15. Ok lex, I'll just put the ones I got into storage. Thanks.
