Right lads & lasses, I have just got home last time I went there I took the BSA, but alas the chain guard needs triming down as its pushing the mudguard into the tyre.

Anyhow had another good day there again. I shall put up the pics later on. When ive sorted out the camera.

Ther firtst ones look like you were pointing the camera at the sun, otherwise some good pics.

My D7 isn't on there probably because I didn't leave here until 1.30, place was very poorly signposted, if at all.

Plenty of room though and the small gauge railway was something else for the kids etc.

Well done with the pics, I didn't take a camera.

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

I had the camera on the wrong setting then realised.

Just spotted something interesting in the information for the 1914 Triumph Type C Roadster. It apparently has 'total loss lubrication'. Is that just a fancy way of saying it leaks?

No that age of bike did not have an oil sump the oil was in a separate part of the petrol tank you had to manually give the engine a pump of oil every mile or so with the plunger knob on the tank, it just got burned off and did not go back to the tank
so was a total loss
you were kept busy riding bikes of this age as they also did not have a automatic carb you had a separate air leaver and mixture leaver, and both needed adjustment to go faster of slower
