On A Snowy Day…

I find myself confined to the warmth of my Barge here on the river, so I started looking through eBay at the classic bikes for sale, and came across this…

 “1948 Velocette mac road racer it is up and running and on the road last year original reg with current v5c oily rag original condition mechanically perfect. It has air over oil Dowty forks that hold air fine and work well with double damping 4 speed gear box twin leading shoe front break rear set foot rests and is very fast and reliable.

Yesterday March 10th was another Mortons Media run Kempton Park Jumble, and although the weather was predicted to be wet and rainy, apart from one small shower it was a very nice day, warm with just a little sun thrown in. It had the usual mix of old, and not so old motorcycles and parts for sale, and plenty of people milling around to make the day interesting.

If you would like to see some more pictures from the day, then check out the attached slideshow link Slideshow       

The very las part of the jigsaw was put in place today, when I received the original registration from the DVLA, not a new reg, but the original old registration,  the guys at the DVLA used the frame number to track down the original number, and now it is back where it belongs, back on the old Norton, and back on the road.

So a project I started in November 2011 has now come to an end, it has I think been fun.

Just picked up this Triumph Tiger Cub head from being vapour blasted, for one of my neighbours. Nice job too.

I decided that the backstreets needed a little more thunder, so I started looking and found myself a nice old 1996 Evo electraglide, only two owners, the first of which was the “Gregory’s Girl” actor, John Gordon Sinclair. And nice low mileage too.

Roll on summer.
