Misc / Open / What do you own 2019? (Main bike only please)
« on: January 11, 2019, 07:17:04 AM »
I've updated this for 2019 - I suspect there are even more 400s on here now than there were last time...

Please only vote for your "main" bike, be it a rider or a restoration. It would be very easy to skew the result if you have a barn full of bikes (like James  ))

Edit - polls don’t show on Tapatalk. I don’t know why but will try and find out.

A new member recently emailed me and called my forum "a joke"

Before I delete him, just thought I'd check as to whether this actually works...  I can't test it myself as the admin rules are different.

Out & About / Unit 1 Motorcycles, Wickham Market, Oct 18
« on: October 07, 2018, 10:11:56 AM »
This place is just a few miles up the road from my mother-in-law's place in Ufford, Woodbridge but I've never been there before.

After dropping her off on Satrday morning for a flu jab at the doctors' in Wickham Market, I drove down there and introduced myself.

First surprise - walked in and David Silver was standing there with a cup of coffee!

We chatted about bikes (as you do)

They have some really nice stock - said they were short of Hondas at the moment (just one 400/4) but had half a dozen 916s coming in soon...

Only had 20 mins so took some photos and promised to go back next time I'm in the area.

Long time since I've seen an RRN 'Blade

CB500/550 / K0 Bobber?

I’m in danger of needing an anorak here.

K0? Surely not with a 21 frame.

If you shoot me down on this I reserve the right to delete the thread.
(I’m the admin so I can do what I like )

Announcements / * New * "Out & About" Board
« on: September 30, 2018, 09:37:53 AM »
To keep all those thoughts, reports and photos in one place, I have created a new board in the "General" section.

I've moved some threads there. If you find one that I've missed, just drop me a line.

Found in my toolbox and unlikely to ever use them. They have “CB500F Aug 02” written on the box in my handwriting.

Yours for the postage.

Found these in the bottom of my toolbox.
They look complete with four parts in each box.
Free to a good home (pay postage if you like)

I’m sure one of our resident engine builders will want these for their “stash”

Other Bikes / One for the Cub boys…
« on: August 15, 2018, 05:31:05 PM »
Amsterdam.

1.1M people. 1M bicycles. Scooters everywhere (no helmets, driven by the old and the young, mostly on cyclepaths and footpaths).

I saw a motorcycle on Tuesday. A guy on an R1. He looked well out of place.

Saw this:

Misc / Open / DSS on Sat 4th August anyone?
« on: August 01, 2018, 09:03:54 PM »
Stuck in Woodbridge at the mother-in-laws for the rest of the week so fancy a trip to the David Silver museum on Saturday. 

If anyone is around that day, it would be good to meet up for a coffee.

CB500/550 / New bike - have to change my name...
« on: July 05, 2018, 10:44:11 AM »
This lovely CB500K0 arrived yesterday in sunny Wokingham.

Since this photo was taken, it has been fitted with paintwork from Menno so even more lovely.

Many thanks to James, David Silver (?) and Menno

Bike needs a name too - "Goldie" sold to another forum member to fund this.

Time for "Goldie" to go...



Off the road since I moved house two years ago. The removal men insisted that I drain the tank. I broke the filler cap latch and it hasn't seen any fuel since.

Was running nicely but leaked fuel from #4 carb.

There are a few other bits that need attention but it shouldn't take much for a dedicated SOHCer :)

UK bike on a K plate. 37k miles.

Looking for £3.5k

PM for details if interested

I've been at the seaside during half term and never worked out how to do admin stuff via TapaTalk on my phone.

All done now so welcome to those new members who have been waiting all week!

Member 4 Sales / READ THIS FIRST!
« on: October 11, 2017, 04:45:09 PM »
I don't want to cause offense here but there have been some instances of members putting stuff on ebay and linking it here.

If you want to offer your old parts to other members of this forum, please include an asking price and make sure that members here get a chance to talk to you about it before you list it on ebay.

Links to ebay auctions will be removed :(

Ad will be removed after 90 days.

Thanks

Steve
