Hi Bones

At that price I would be mad not to use your CDI unit, especially when all my parts are missing or wrecked, I will PM you when the time comes.

The only way I could beat you, Is NOT to install a Bones ignition and have 300 posts about timing issues. LOLroflrofl

Seriously, I have been to busy with work to have time for the Bantam, I did however order all the parts for the engine rebuild, So watch out.

Are you going to document the installation of your Bones electronic unit???

There you go Dimitriscy, a picture of the 1950 frame that I will have use now just to match my casing numbers, it is all primed, welded and ready for paint.

Plan is to take every part of my 1953 Bantam and swap it over onto this 1950 frame,  The only thing I have to change and paint is the different valanced front guard, headlight and try to find a tool box with twin screws, (Before you say it, NO not a Indian copy) I can also now use my painted rims instead of saving for chrome ones.

I was always working on plan B as I did not think that the 1953 engine would come apart.

You can always mount your bracket using clamps instead of welding, to mount your electrics.

That cap has the best chrome on it and I was going to use it on my 53 D1, so 1955 sound about right, the other ones must be earlier type. Thanks mate.clap

Thanks, Yours is different again, I never realized that they are all different, I suppose it's not important but I might as well put the correct cap onto the right bike.....Thanks,

PS: still waiting for your Bones unit????, I would love to see you finish your Bantam once and for all and have some fun with it after all the poo (poo, douse not get censored) you have been through.

See ya'h...Hanswave

Believe it or not... I have allready the Bones unit in my hands..exactly
It was sent from Australia on Tuesday, and i recieved yesterday afternoon(Thursday!!!).
Yes, i know it sounds crazy! I knew TNT is using their own airplanes, but .......dunno
And just keep in mind, that there is for sure NO direct air flight to Cyprus from Australia of course!!!
I was not really ready for this..i still try to find the 12V bulbs i need, to go to 12V system..doh

Just a update on my 1950 D1, I send the fork legs and other parts away to get chromed, I will be ordering the tyres soon to fit on my painted rims, I just have to get someone to check my relacing of the spokes, as I have never done it before, we are also fitting the bearings in the engine and are chasing more parts for it.

I have been to the swap-meet on the weekend and found very few Bantam parts for sale, I bought the few parts that where there, like badly rusted rigid rims with good axles and hubs, one only 1953 D1 fork leg in good condition, centre stand in good condition, one seized 1950 YD engine without the barrel and covers, So watch out for HOW TO BREAK OPEN CASINGS "PART TWO".

And that's about all the progress at the moment, I did start the 1948 rigid and it is great inspiration to get my 50 on the road.

Update: I just ordered my +60 piston set from Rex Caunt Racing for my 1950 motor and some more bits from Howard, Bournemouth bantams, and heaps more small parts, The engine is coming along after stripping another engine for parts.

I still need to chase up the exhaust and headlight.

YES, rantingIt's all fun and games until you break a casingdoh, Funny thing is, That these casing where already broken and bashed up, But it came apart easily, BUT the motor I bought at the swap meet is totally rusted inside and with the barrel missing, Douse that sound familiar??? I would like to try again to split the casings as they have no broken alloy in the chain area and also it is a 1950, I only paid $50 AU for the engine, perfect D1 centre stand and two rusty D1 wheel with hubs and axles for a rigid, Bargain.

Got to go cocorico, I have to count some more
 rivets, LOLroflwhistle
