Andrew, love the bike BTW but why does it need to sit on a block of wood under the main stand? ground uneven or is the stand slightly bent?

Also is your location Bletchley Park? Just curious as I love little puzzles like that.

The mainstands were scrap
And the far East replica is 1 inch too short especially as the tyres
Are TT100's
Station X is a mile away

Andrew

I was always of the opinion that Bletchley Park was situated near Milton Keynes as I used to deliver around Bletchley in the 90s. However last night there was a program on called WW2 from Space which intrigued me as I am a bit of a WW2 nut. Part of the program was about the codebreakers at Bletchley Park and they had a satellite view of the UK on screen and a big pin in the shot to show where Bletchley Park was, according to them it's in Essex, somewhere near Southend as far as I could make out. I was a little surprised but didn't think it was unusual for a house to be named after another part of the country, but I've just looked it up and it appears I was right after all. Typical yanks can't even read a map properly, hope he's not the same guy who programmed the A bombs, meant for Moscow and ends up wiping out Moss Side in Manchester.

Nothing wrong with wiping out Moss Side and the national computer museum is also at Bletchley Park.

Beat me to it Bryan. I went to Moss Side once (by accident) as I was supposed to be visiting Siemens/GPT

Back to the topic, my main stand has a broken leg.
Going to see if any other can fit.

I think it's the same stand as an upright CD175 Rich so at least not a mega rare part.

Hi Rich,
               The mainstands are a weakspot the chassis is identical to the cb175k3-k6 including the main stand.
Can you believe the money breakers want for them ?
Regards
Andrew

Answering the location of Bletchley park it's within spitting distance of the station reputedly there was an underground tunnel
Between the station and park because there was so many documents being moved to London each day.
The tunnel exited at a platform
It was later filled in by railways staff after the war.

Andrew

There was also a airfield which is now lord grey school and the Leys going all the way to the old A5 and Westland helicopters at the bottom. I used to play in all the old buildings in Bletchley park as a kid, the only part that was occupied, was the main house that was a GPO training school  ;)

That was cheap for an estate the size of Bletchley

Yes, sorry Rich we went off topic there for a bit. It was listed as a main stand for a CB125K5 but used the same part number as the K3, bit rusty but looked unbroken to me. Italian E-Bay and only one bidder for 10 euro. Would have shipped to the UK as well  :(
