    Hi Fellas, Firstly may I wish you all a VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR. Secondly the Pup is at the exhaust manufacturer's as he won't make up the repo exhausts until he has the bike. Once they are made I shall have them ceramic coated in black for durability and heat disipation. Still haven't got the dynamo/distributor back from the renovator as yet but paitence is a virtu (as I used to tell my kids many years ago) lol. Although not really relative to this forum, I managed to pick up a rolling frame and wheels for a BSA B25 of 1968 vintage locally and the forks and front wheel are exactly what I need for the BSA army B40 but have to return the frame and rear wheel to the seller which I don't need. Once grit blasted and painted they will be fitted and the B40 should begin to look like a real bike. The tank will have the decal for the Royal Army Service Corps in memory of my Dad who served in that Regiment during the Second World War. I was born in Kent UK very near Biggin Hill fighter base and when I got the chance used to creep out of the shelter to watch the dog fights above until my Mum grabbed me by my collar (or was it the arse of my pants) and dragged me back inside. Cheers and hope you all had a great Xmas as I did with sons and grand kids.

    Sounds like some good projects Gerry and a nice way to honour your dad. You'll have to post up some pics for us to look at

    Hi Guys, At long last shes all back together after 2 years of hard work and many problems. Now I have a carb' leak which I can't seem to be able to fix, lapped the taper seats of the petcocks and seated the float needle but to no effect so far....I shall persevere. I shall at last get her out of the shed and take some more pics' to post as soon as I am able. Have had her fire for a few strokes but won't run consistently, carb' problem I think but I know I have got the timing right as there are three keyways on the dynamo sprocket and only one matches up with the points opening BTDC. I cant wait to try her out but foot clutch will probably give me a few problems lol
    Cheers Gerry

    Its a beautiful machine Gerry. Congratulations on all your efforts. Do you need to take the carby's and bike further afield for a solution?

     Hi Steelo, I have been trying to get her to run but with no success so I am taking her to a local guy who is a dab hand at Harleys but don't know if he has ever had any luck with the Shebler GX1 which is whats on her and I believe it is original. Only way I could get her to run was with a pressure pack of starting fuel (Start ya Bastard). Some nice person cut the chain and stole my trailer so need to borrow one before I can transport it to him. Had to re-seat the oil manual pump check valve which was leaking oil all over my bloody shed floor!! Other than that, got the lights working and the horn. Now once the thing runs I will have to take life in hand and get her on the road. I modified the twist grips cables so the right side is the throttle and the left side is the advance retard which should at least make it more usable for me but the foot clutch is going to be fun...ok here's a few more pic's of as she is before cmpleting the wiring. Cheers. Gerry

    Hi Jerry,
    Just getting together a few Pup parts hoping to make something of them.
    I now have a reasonable gearbox and clutch (amongst other bits of course) ... but unable to find any info on their internal arrangement in terms of the nature of the bearing for the triple gear (countrshft gear) and possible interchangeable later parts for the apparently unobtainable 2303-26 triple gear?
    I note from a previous post that you have gathered some details and might be willing to share them?
    Any assistance you can offer will be much appreciated.
    All the best
    Many thanks
    Russell
