On the twin stop rear lamp set up I have, bulbholders are just spirals of thickish wire, a novel way I thought to get job done efficiently and cheaply.

Four now on the road and at least several in bits.

Perhaps we could start a sound archive, Blue and get everyone to showcase their different horn sounds. 🤣 Mine is very good! Loud and good tone. Just looks ludicrous 😨 

So.... went out in the sunshine to sort out the wiring. Perfect day for it. Started her up. Super. Undid the headlamp bowl for access. Kicked her over - nothing! Absolutely nothing! No spark at all. After a couple of hours replacing coils and checking wires etc I've decided it's the condenser. It was runnjng a bit lumpy before. I actually have a condenser en route from Howard so hopefully itll arrive soon. With the aid of a wee 6v gel battery that i git out of maplins on closing day for pennies,  I did manage to light the Speedo ( ironic cheer Woohoo!)

The posted delivered some fork seals do I used the time not spent wiring to fit them and that's the forks and front wheel all sorted now - bearings washers, seals, gaiters. All nice. Yokes and stanchions await further inspection.

Also tried out the universal brake switch that I'm going to use to operate my LED stop lamp creation powered by 2 AA batteries that I hope to hide under tank. Seemed to go well and may not be too overly complicated. Ha! May be able to solder the earth "leg" of the LED to the lamp backplate and run a live feed to the other. Well thats the plan.

Also forked out on one of those dinky little pillion pads from Classic Bikeparts. My wee girl will love that!

Must stop looking at online shops. Must stop looking at online shops. Must stop looking at online shops. Must stop looking at online shops. Must stop looking at online shops. Must stop looking at online shops.

Oh yeah,bulb horn sound archives,like they do for various bike engines,I`d go with that,haha.

Look forward to seeing your revamped Bantam.Hope the new condenser gets her sparked up again.They do tend to fail after being stood up for some time I`ve noticed.

Can`t beat a bit of bike spares retail therapy 🙂

Has anybody had any success/ have any tips on this subject.

The 37mm socket didn't quite fit the nuts but a 38mm, newly arrived via Mr Amazon seems to fit fine. A tiny bit loose - they're probably 37.8 mm(ish)

Got a pair of NOS nuts off eBay just in case of any little mishaps - a wee bargain at a fiver ☺

Hi all, got myself some Legshields(thanks Alun) Now I need brackets. Have put a message in Wanted but was also wondering if there were any plans/diagrams/specs out there which I could maybe get a set fabricated from?

Cheers

Thanks Sunny. I hoped that wouldn't be the case as the pad is sooo close to fitting the rack. That's why I thought maybe u bolts would catch it....

Perhaps a couple of plates attached front and rear of rack might grab the pad?

Hi all, returning to an old favourite here cry

I've got a direct lighting D1 - easiest lighting in the world surely?? Frustratingly - NOranting

I've got a replacement S0871 wipac H/L switch meant for D7 upwards as probably a lot of us do who can't find an original replacement. Obviously the D7 has a battery therefore the switch contacts are different. The D1 wires don't match the D7 switch diagram and the D1 diagram doesn't match the D7 switch! SURELY there has to be a SIMPLE, DEFINITIVE diagram out there which tells you which wires go on which «censored» switch contact without inviting you to muse on the wonders of electromagnetism. I've got a multimeter, yes, but it's as much use to me as a potato peeler in this instance. I don't need judged, instructed, improved, encouraged or ought, I just need to be told like an idiot which «censored» wires to put on which «censored» contacts so that the sidelight and rear light come on when I switch to L and the main bulb and rear light come on and dip when I switch to H. There's only a couple of wires for crying out loud it can't be THAT complicated. Which contact for the power feed, which for sidelight, which for mainbeam, which for neutral, which for rear light. ???

PLEEEEEEASE ranting

Thank You.

Okay, so this S0781 replica switch is the same switch, except cosmetically as this original?

[Permission to view this image is denied]

And the connections should be the same?

It also occurred to me that I might be looking at the $÷#×@! switch upside down?! I've been comparing it to the wiring diagram from underneath but it now dawns on me - DOH!- that it may be looking down on the switch from above..... I have at least cottoned-on to the fact that L is "on" when L is facing forward rather than when the week ahead points to L. Very simple to be confused with the old protocols....and very frustrating. I started rewiring the lights trying to find all the original coloured wire etc, Now I would happily splice it all into one and just have everything working all the time 😣 ( not really)

Oh dear!!

[Permission to view this image is denied]

Took out the engine to replace oil seals as when I took it for a shakedown there was a plume of smoke. Whilst tidying the frame I came across this rather unpleasant crack! ! MOST distressing. Hopefully I should be able to repair if with my new mig welder? Been collecting a few wee jobs to practice on before unleashing myself on something critical like this.......
