Jampot Leak Cure

I enjoyed Keith Fryer's article on the G12 Monza outfit in the August issue and reading of the oil leak problem, reminded me of a similar problem I had with my 1958 Model 30 AJS. I have F Neill's book on AMC Twins and dealing with oil leaks around the cylinder base suggests a leak between the cylinders at the crankcase joint due to cylinder removal. From memory there are no jointing screws at this point between the crankcase halves, with a pressure feed running fore and aft. I drilled and...

Mark Zimmerman

There was a time in my life when I was absolutely convinced that the BSA 441 Victor Special was the be-all and end-all of motorcycling. 1 must have been about 15 years old at the time, and somehow I'd stumbled over one of those 25-cent paperbacks that school librarians pushed on kids to get them to read, especially those kids labeled 'troublesome I was already a voracious, if somewhat troubled reader, and dead crazy over bikes so it didn't take much prodding on the librarians part to get me...

Words And Photographs By Nigel C

The day before was glorious, the day after was glorious, but on the day of the CBG inaugural Big Breakfast, at the Markham Moor Truck Stop, near Retford, it rained and it rained, in fact it rained every bit of the day Despite the quite dreadful weather, there was a surprisingly good turnout of hardy souls, the majority on genuine classics, and many from a good way away. Riders from Holmfirth in Yorkshire, Warrington, several from Sheffield and Rotherham, Derby, Nottingham, one had even...

What if the breath that kindl'd those grim fires, Atoak'd should blow them into seven-fold rage, And plunge us in the flames . . . (Milton, Paradise Lost.)

That Velo Record Trap

I enjoyed the edition of CBG with the 500 Velocettes, October issue. I am a Velocette enthusiast, as you know, but not, I hope, an anorak but I'd like to point out an error in the piece, not because it detracts from the piece, but because it raises something interesting that is not widely known about Veloce and their record attempts and a fact often used in error, so perpetuating it. The picture on page 38 is captioned 'The 1963 record breaking 24hr Venom, on the Mondhery banking, during one of...

Isdt Twins

If BSA were reluctant to support road racing on a works level, the same was most definitely not true of off-road competition. Trials, motocross and ISDT were all rich feeding grounds for factory supported BSA riders and the pre-unit twins enjoyed their share of the action. As early as 1948, a trials twin had appeared with works rider Bill Nicholson at the helm. With alloy cylinder block and heads, lightened oil-damped forks and small 5' z in brakes, it not only looked the part, but actually...

Legendary Motorcycles 2011

American based Motorbooks have issued a 2011 calendar, depicting a dozen legendary motorcycles. The calendar is sealed you can win it next month, so there's no access to descriptions of the bikes, though some are fairly obvious. For example there's Mike Hailwood's TT winning Ducati, Tom Christenson's triple engined Norton Hogslayer 111, Freddie Spencer's four cylinder 500cc GP Honda and his 250cc title winning twin, a G50 Matchless, nice Ilarley side valve flat tracker and a few more images I...

Racing Thetwins

Champion, Cyril Smith and in 1959, decided to have a crack at road racing. On his first visit to theTT in 1960, Vincent was mixing it with the factory BMWs before he was forced out with engine troubles. A year later, he was the man to beat on the British sidecar scene aboard his A7 and AlO-powered kneelers, setting lap records seemingly wherever he went on his way to becoming British Champion. However, 1962 would see Vincent's - and BSA's -finest ever result on the world stage. At the 1962 TT -...

Rocket Goldstar

Considering the Rocket Gold Star has become the most desirable and valuable of all the BSA twins, it seems strange to recall that the RGS was only added to the BSA catalogue in February 1962 - just a couple of months before the standard A7 and A10 twins were pensioned off in favour of the new unit construction range, but perhaps that's the secret of the Rocket Goldie's allure. Just 2200 of the 46bhp, 1 lOmph twins were produced in a little over a year and demand for the top of the range sports...

Old Dogs New Tricks

With reference to your leader in the October issue of CBG that I've just received, Old Dog, New Tricks , this is a point that has been worrying me for some time, and was bought into focus last week. My 16-year-old son went for his CBT and the 'experienced' instructor made a few unhelpful comments, based upon modern riding styles. My son passed OK, but I was concerned at the advice being given to novices now. Like yourself, I've been riding bikes all my life. My first experience was as a...

Peter Williams

Wheels, arguably, must be the first engineering components invented by man. They are at the basis of our civilisation. With no wheels we would not have motorcycles and the only fun we could have would be fighting each other It was when I wanted to put leading link front suspension on my pedal bike, and consequently-needed a drum brake, that 1 laced my first wheel. I was fascinated by the whole technique. It was like mathematics - ifyou followed the rules, they formed a pattern - and still do. A...
