Hey , some news !

Normally my Royal enfield is sold . The new owner come next thursday to pick it up !

I can look forward for the bantam . And i had one question : some screws on the bike are rusted . I searched on internet for screws kit , but i only find BTR (i don't know if its english word or not) screws kit . At the origins , it was flat screws or Phillips head ?

 

Thanks you !

Thanks you ! 

In France BTR screws is what you send, hex screws apparently. Was this type of screws mounted on brand new bsa bantam at the time ?

I think BTR is equivalent to Hexagon Socket Head (Allen Heads). As far as I know, Bantams used Pan Head screws (ie for a flat-bladed screwdriver - tournevis). Another problem for you is that BSA tended to use a variety of Imperial threads (BSW, BSF, UNC, etc).

Bien fait, et bonne chance avec l'immatriculation!

I expect you will be going for Vehicule de Collection, are you aware that all 'demarches' are by internet now - I applied for a VdC just after the transition from paper to internet and the process was terrible - there was so much demand on the FFVE that applications for their dating certificate was taking several months. I would suggest that you apply for a dating cert from the club (via Mr Walsh) in order to help with the FFVE application. Bonne chance!

I thought Bantam casing screws were cheeseheads?

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

I have a "problem":
The kickstarter does not want to stay on his axis.
It hinders the operation of the gear lever. I have strong tight up but he does not hold well on his axis despite everything. Do you have an idea for him to stay well?
thank you

It sounds to me like splines on lever or quadrant are worn out, I think maybe lever should be slightly softer? So you might need a new one.

 A 'bodge' some people try is using a hacksaw to lengthen 'slot' in arm above splined area. You need to take blade out of saw to get it into hole, don't forget!

I machined a piece to not interfere with the proper function of each lever. the real solution is to change the kick and the axis but I would do this this autumn with a motor paint and the change of the kick spring

For now i have to change the exhaust the chrome is gone. Change the speedo cable and the front break !

Have a look ** Please log in to view ** for an exploded diagram of the area. I think you mean part 54 and 45 on that page.
