    I used to like the TR6P police bike a Triumph Thunderbird with a standard inlet cam and a E3134 exhaust cam they used to accelerate like hell and pulled like a train ,that cam set up was really good for the slower circuits. .

    Great photos Ian realy enjoying them I had my first bike in 1964 a Triumph tiger100 1939 with a sidecar ,I bought it from my neighbour Alan Lewis who was a teacher at Bramcote Tech ,I never wanted a motorbike but I have never been without one since ,its not me in the pic but the pick up might have been my Dads or his mates Lol Andrews who was a plastering contractor , My Dads was CRR 466C bought new from Sandicliffe , a great little wagon I passed my test in it.

    Raglan Engineering - St Anns

    I managed to get the leadscrew ball nut back together on my Bridgeport,easy when you know how but a bit daunting when you don,t the secret is pack the nut with the balls into their threads with grease and make a mandrel to fit inside and over the leadscrew end and thread it on ,simples as the meercat says.

  14. I reckon the bike outof the dozens I have owned,for the best fun and games we did thousands of miles on it ,the dragon rally ,Isle ofMan TT ,loads of rallies it was a BSA M20 ex WD with wooden box sidecar ,cost me 3/9d in bits happy days, and millions of laughs.
