........and now for something completely different!

I had great fun many years ago with this bike and got it registered on an A plate (1983 built). Eventually sold it to a mate before we came up here to Orkney, not sure where it ended up.

I had that kit too Steve including  the add on kit that had two little loudspeakers (that you must have had too).

TUT TUT!  Steve  ;D ;D ...you didn't fit the little red rubber 'cow's udder' things that protected the AF116 & AC126 trannies from wire fatigue .


Sadly that’s an internet image Ash.

I do remember those fiddly little bits of red rubber though.

I use that profile all of the time for test rigs as in James's kit and I notice now that there are lots of manufacturers in the Far East selling it a lot cheaper than the supppliers I used about 15 years ago (which were then mainly German or Swiss). Some of the components are amazing engineering tools (leadscews, motor systems etc.) ... albeit very expensive from the European suppliers)

A few years ago I  built quite a complicated rig for life testing a product for a company but they built the frame themselves using the 'Item' stuff (see link) At 'Sign'off time their 'tw*t' of a safety guy tried to tell me that my electrical panel wasn't earth bonded properly (which it was, as I eventually proved to him ... so he duly signed it  off and I got paid).  I was then a bit of a smart arse (what's new I hear you say  ;D) and told him that their framework was anodised and consequently, seeing as he was being so picky with me,  you couldn't guarantee the continuity of earth bonding at every joint. He then came back at me and claimed every joint would surely have a conduction path caused when it was screwed together and that, if my suggestion was correct, then why didn't the manufacturer of the aluminium sell an earthing kit. Turned out when we we checked in the catalogue that lo and behold there was a mega expensive earthing kit about ten quid each  .. so he had to fit 100 of these kits to every joint on the test rig.

These are the ones I have used in the past:-

Also had one of these ... absolutely brilliant .. my mate DodgyRoger still has one,  as his mum was a demonstrator in a large Department store in Hull for toys like this (plus 'Lotts'  chemistry sets)' .

They were so good that architects used them to model new house designs in the 1960's and show them is Estate Agents windows.

Philips Electronic Engineer kit.

Made my first radio receiver at about 8 years old.

Sadly the germanium transistors used in these sets, particularly the AF116,  will have developed 'tin whiskers' inside. This is also the case on NOS transistors too. It's the reason why in radio's you get from a car boot, if working, will crackle when you shake them .. it could be dry solder joints tooof coursec but on at least a couple I have found it was the dreaded 'tin whiskers' growing inside the trannies.

My lock up is too far to walk to for exercise but boy has infusion for Crohns next week and hospital is just round corner so can get away with it.
If Ken has one it would be far easier, i know i have at least 1 set of bare cases i could remove from but they are all later cases.

No worries Bryan PLEASE don't try to find one ... one is bound to turn up or I will just bite the bullet and order the one in the States .. maybe I can get them to mark the value for customs down to £15 (I just did that with a set of Bomber piston rings and the USA seller was happy to do it).

Interesting that they superseded the part at less that 1000 bikes into the production run.

Well this week alone I've ordered a set of repro pipes, a NOS tacho for a CB550F2 as I have those clocks fitted to my 500 and just bought a NOS seat on E-Bay. Been an expensive week.

I think I know whose seat that was Ken ... seemed a good deal for NOS

I'll have a look in my big box of bits Ash.

Did the countershaft come with the bearing? I have a NOS one and the bearing is so full of protective grease it's stiff to turn, need to wash it in petrol before I use it just to dissolve the grease. I also have the needle bearing NOS, in fact except for 2 gears I have the entire gearbox NOS. And that includes the selectors.

Cheers guys .. The countershaft is used but in good order .. it seems to be the needle roller bearing thats prone to failing (you know the one with the dualled rollers we have discussed on here before i.e the 323 part not the 286 part on the other shaft ... I  did get NOS needle rollers for both shafts thoug ...  just to be on the safe side).
