Replace the cable abutment ferrule with a shorter one.canyoncarver said:Here's an issue maybe one or two of you can help with ideas for. The top of the carb circled, is just under an inch of clearance to the frame. I need to find either a different fitting or something otherwise it's too tight of a bend for a cable.
Cool!. I do have a few things I'm looking for the best source on such as the rubber bits for the oil tank mounts.grandpaul said:Replace the cable abutment ferrule with a shorter one.
Just ran into this thread, following.
I have tons of Commando stuff left over; hit me up for anything you need, maybe I have it...
You mean a "pedestrian slicer" ?pidjones said:The fender looks perfect for it. If I were ever lucky enough to build another Brit bike, it would have one of the front fender dorsals that they used to put license on.
They were compulsory here in the early days, and it took many years of complaints to get the regulation changed.canyoncarver said:You mean a "pedestrian slicer" ?
I don’t know much about Brit bikes, but isn’t that Gold Star the real valuable gem of the bunch? Maybe I’m just still sun drunk from staring at thumpers so long...canyoncarver said:The Commando is still on my lift but progress has been stalled as I shifted my time to the YZF track bike(s) and prepping the ZRX and my wife's FZ6R for an upcoming road trip. I'm considering a few options on the Commando after talking with Dad. I'm really wanting the P11 to ride instead. Might even consider selling the Commando to fund the 65' Atlas featherbed project. Shiny.
Yeah, it's actually a 1960 BSA 500cc Gold Star Catalina Scrambler. It's a beauty. It is worth more than the Commando certainly. Dad and I haven't made up our minds on that one yet. For an old scrambler, I dig the P11, probably because I've ridden it.Kanticoy said:I don’t know much about Brit bikes, but isn’t that Gold Star the real valuable gem of the bunch?
