Re: 1979 350 Sport petrol tank.

Cheers Pete

The ebay tank is just not worth the money being asked unfortunately, hopefully someone on here might have one at a more realistic price.

Re: 1979 350 Sport petrol tank.

Cheers Steve, It is a good bash, but I may well go down that route, probably lead filling, unless a tank turns up. I have the bike with Benjy and the frame is bent and the forks, so will see what the insurers say.

Re: 1979 350 Sport petrol tank.

Cheers Mickey, will be limping a bit for a few days, but otherwise OK, I had braked heavily and was only doing 10 mph or so when I hit him, came out of a side road in my path. An accident, they happen.

1979 350 Sport petrol tank.

I got knocked off my 1979 350/501 Sport today, breaking several parts but most significantly badly denting the fuel tank. Fortunately I seem to have bounced quite well. If anybody has such a tank I would love to hear from you. Thanks.

Re: New wire harness

I used one, some of the wires I didn't use, one or two I had to make up, but I had no complaints, as an electrical dyslexic it helped me a great deal, and everything worked and has kept on working.

Re: Speedometer

Mark,
Keep away from Speedy cables, they are anything but.
Sorry I don't have a recommendation, but I am sure this topic has been covered before, put it in the search box.

Re: Festival Italia Brands hatch 15th August 2021

Bruce,

Just had a look and it seems very much a car event, never been and I could be wrong, but there does not look like much two wheeled action to me.
Still, would not mind taking a bike up there if others were going.

Re: Track day Cadwell 2021

As Julian says, some of us pack in by mid afternoon, I have two bikes there and am out in a lot of sessions, as soon as I start feeling tired, I pack it in as I know that is when mistakes are made.

Re: DVLA registration

When I was registering a bike a couple of years ago, my recorded delivery letter went missing within the DVLA, I was lucky enough to establish a contact who advised me against sending things recorded, the reason being that if they need signing for, they have to go to a different department and then ...

Re: FRONT BRAKE Update

Thanks Daddy Dom,
The brake as it is works fine, just has a bit of a lack of feel, wondering if the 16mm cylinder would improve that?
