Thanks guys, haven't come across the problem before on my maicos, but the son is keen to have a ride on the Elsinore so we will take it out for a little spin.

Left cr125 for a while and clutch plates are sticking. Any way to get working other than pull apart?

Story goes that Dean Taylor of SA on his tz700 yam speedway sidecar and Clarry Jones of Vic had a fierce rivallry (as most sidecar boys do). At Bendigo Showgrounds one night Dean got Clarry to dive into his tool box and was met by a pet snake. Clarry retaliated a few weeks later by swallowing his gold fish at a party. Apparently one re emerged later still flapping. Didn't witnessed this one but I did of a few of Clarry's other jokes.

British (BSA, Greeves, Triumph etc) / Ignition system for a 75 CCM
« on: August 16, 2016, 08:19:36 PM »
Need to fit an ignition system to a CCM 75 bottom end with the flat "ribbed" left hand side side cover. Early models with the twin big circles had room to put something like a HPI system on the shaft but this can't be done unless resplitting the motor, longer journal and new side over purchased. Have a magic box but also looking at alternatives as you just don't know when the magic box runs out of oomph. Thoughts?

Missed catching up with you Big K. Caught up with heaps of Mexicans and enjoyed helping an old mate, John Selva. Glad you enjoyed the weekend and got out before the big rains. If you need a crash pad in August give me a holler.

Have spent time with him in his shed, company is Qld Muscle cars, his top end stuff is really nice, suppose buyer has to work out if that is the price they want to pay. Was good to deal with.

Was 14 and spent a bit of time watching the bikes but more time chasing a bit of skirt about. (Keith Rhodes daughter) girls are just so far in front of adolescent males! Meet DeCoster, Bauer, Robert, Miller at Trevor Floods Golden Mile Motorcycles on the Friday. Amazing to watch the Worlds best race sl70s in the car park in between drinking beers. Don't think it would happen nowadays!

Looking for a photocopy of the Victorian pages of the program if you have one. Will cover any costs. I Was 14 and went to the Calder event but haven't got any photos but did collect some autographs.

Need to be a financial club member? Haven't joined up yet?

1970 Bill Patterson rally at Wallan on a SL70. 1972 first race Sub Juniors 14-16 yrs at Barrabool on a KTM Sachs 125. Graduated to Opens at Ballarto Rd Frankston track 1974 on a Maico 250 and also swung for Russell Bergmier on his dad's 500cc Triumph Wasp. Gee wish I could do 4 practices 3 solo races and 3 sidecar races today. (3 laps sees me out) Looks like a few of us were at Ballarto Rd that day.

If it's something from Scott Blackwell it will be good, daughter lives in Mackay if it needs to be stored before transporting.

Have the half inch fibre  sealing plate on my CCM motor and just wondering what people use to seal the plate to the motor and then the inlet tract to the plate. Want something that seals obviously but doesn't destroy/ is able to be removed when the motor needs to be rebuilt.
