Words And Photographs By Phil Mather

However, not so long before, Tom chanced upon a derelict BSA languishing in buildings that had once housed a brood of hens. The owner wanted the site cleared - for him the bike had served its purpose 40 years ago, so its future was of no interest to him For Tom though it was love at first sight. Everything about it said 'worn out, broken down and busted but Tom could see beyond the dust, the rust and the manure. The BSA had character. The combination of twin cylinder engine and rigid frame,...

The bricks were only pretend' but could still come keen if they clobbered you at speed. If you've been reading CBG for the last year or so the name of Daniel Hicks may ring a bell with you - that's because he was a member of Gerry Gooch's Display Team - and some of his earlier antics were featured in the August 2010 issue. When Gooch retired, Daniel and fellow stunt rider Man Chambers bought three of the bikes and continued for a few more years as The Moto-Cyclowns. Here arc a few images from...

What Goes Wrong

From 1948 onwards, die 350 and 500 models share the same bottom end. That means it's relatively easy to convert a 350 to a 500 by swapping the top end. Many such conversions have been done over the years, but It's advisable to re-balance the crank If you go tills route. If you're buying a 500cc conversion, ask if the crank has been re-balancec ask for receipts if it has and take a test ride to check for unusual vibration. The timing pinion retaining nut is a left-hand thread - be aware of this....

The Cheney Greeves

Norton Commando Bob Trigg

Mobile salesmen have an ability to make visits of a personal nature, unbeknown to HQ in such context I frequently visited Eric Cheney, whose busy Fleet workshop was handily placed, while on official Greeves business In south Berks, north Hants, or west Surrey. Eric had earned a formidable reputation on three counts. Firstly, he'd been a successful international scrambler, famously ridir.g an Ariel to victory in the 1950 Sunbeam Point to Point Rritain's most important trade-supported scramble,...

Leather Cruiser Boots

Since the sad demise of Wheatley Boots, there has been a void in the motorcycle boot market for a traditional styled leather boot. As the classic scene continues to grow unabated, those canny folk at Oxford Products have realised that not every motorcyclist wants to walk about in Day-Glo boots, bedecked in non sensical strips of plastic which creak and squeak like a ship's rigging. As such they've launched this terrific looking boot which ticks all the boxes. The boots are part of th Dry range...

First Ever Pre65 Scramble

Belstaff Scramble

Derry was universally liked within the sport and industry, more so in fact than Mr Greeves who was of a quieter, less outgoing disposition. Derry would support all sorts of schemes and projects promoted by clubs or dealers, figuring correctly that Greeves would ultimately benefit in one way or another. When Bob Badman, the Brighton club's very active secretary, decided to hold a Scramble in conjunction with the April 1969 four day Brighton Motorcycle Exhibition, he asked Greeves for help. Bob...

This makes it the more inexplicable that, without a doubt, the worst handling bike I ever rode was, in fact, a Norton. I can't remember what they called it but it was the 750cc Norton Atlas engine in the Matchless CSR frame Norton N15 - Ed . It would definitely have been much better to put the 650 Matchless engine in a Featherbed frame. In the Castle Combe 500 miles hndurance race 1 seemed to be in a tank-slapper all the time If it had been a horse it would have been put down. I personally...

Heavyweight Domination Amc Trial Success

Ajs Trials Bikes

In the immediate aftermath of WWII, trials was far from the specialist sport it has now become. Truth to tell, the same could be said of scrambling and, like most manufacturers keen to offer sporting riders a suitable mount, AMC offered 'Competition'versions of their heavyweight singles as early as 1947 - though the chances of die average trials or scrambles rider rider actually getting hold of cne were slim. There was no specific trials or scrambles model, riders of both sports had to make do...

Evidence of Norton influence came with the adoption of the Norton gear oil pump in place of the AMC plunger-type. Though the heavyweight roadster singles limped or. in the range until 1966, the 1964 models are effectively the last Incarnation of a successful and well-loved machine. AMC was struggling and running at a loss and the eventual takeover of the firm by Manganese Bronze and the subsequent re-branding as Norton-Matchless was as inevitable as it was sad for the legions of AJS and...
