  3. Hi Steve, There are a few people floating about with WD bikes but no 'scene' as such. Do you go to the vmcc shake down event at tibenham? We may go to that as its local go us although we make take pre war civilian machines! Cheers, Simon
  4. Hi Steve, Your triumph looks very nice, well done! I'm in Norfolk too and have a few British bikes including a restored 1940 Triumph 3sw and an almost finished 1942 triumph 3hw. Cheers, Simon
  5. Hi Ron, Many thanks for the reply and the link. I wasn't aware of this site and he certainly has some nice bits. The levers he do however are the same pattern as the ones available from India with the clamp going top to bottom rather than front to back. I'm looking for levers with the front and back fittings as this it what triumph used on the 3hw. Many thanks,
  6. Hello all, My 1942 triumph project is really cracking along in the last couple of weeks (pics to follow) but I've got a bit stuck with break and clutch levers. I was planning on buying Indian pattern levers as they are a good pattern for triumph, but nobody appears to be stocking the correct pattern any longer. The only ones currently for sale have a different clamp style which I'm not willing to use on my machine. Does anybody know of another source? Incidentally i need 1" levers, not 7/8th. Many thanks,
  7. Many thanks Ron. I thought you might be the man to help! Simon
  8. Last year I acquired a 1939 Norton 16H from Belgium which came with a number of parts including this brake lever part. Can anybody identify it? Many thanks,
  9. I'm searching for a British WW2 GS trailer if anyone has one/knows of one. Doesn't have to be restored... thanks
  10. I've been documenting my restoration on my youtube channel- Spirit of Britain TV this is part 5. The other episodes are on there as well. There's good crossover with Tilly construction so I hope you might enjoy them. thanks Simon
  11. Thanks Guy, Yes I saw it before I bought it. It all part of its history although I could have ground the welds down a bit. The frame is straight and I guess it was probably why teles were fitted as the original girders had been damaged at the same time.
  12. Frame oil tank and all other parts resprayed separately, a load of work on the engine, new clutch everyopart cleaned up within an inch of its life, new gaskets and everything repainted separately, then re fitted.
  13. Hi No I picked up the rack later. The photo of if complete Is how I got it. Which bike do you have.
  14. Thanks for your interest Jenks I have a set of fork blades and mudguard stays. I'm after the rest at the moment. I don't wish to buy Indian.... I'm just reassembling it now so I'll post some photos shortly
  15. Not that exciting but I thought it may be of interest. Its 1942. Ended up in Algiers where it was recovered back to Blightly in 1955. It has a fairly standard mod of Matchy G3L front end which I'm replacing with the original triumph girders. So I have a whole G3L front end spare now
