    Re: Bike trailer topbox for luggage etc

    I have seen a similar trailer here in PE. All the guy did was fit a solid bottom and sides. He then added the Securi-lid type lockable roll-top cover.

    Re: White metal casting for restoration

    You possibly need the flux they use for lead wiping. I have some here. Pop around with your casing and we can give it a try.

    What do these sensors look like?

    I replace batteries in the BMW bike sensors quite regularly. Would be interested to see whether these could be done too.

    Re: Restoring a 50 year old Honda motorcycle

    I don't want to dishearten you or 'rain on your parade', but quite honestly, if you want someone who works on bikes for a living to do your restoration, you better have a healthy bank balance.

    Quite honestly, I do not spend enough time behind a camera to warrant the expense of a 5D mkiv or 6d.

    Thanks Tony, but read my later post and have a closer look at the last 2 photos posted. Quality is vastly better with the new lens, and something I can live with for now.

    Re: New Guy - 76 SW

    1st gear on an unladen V8 is seldom necessary. In town, I use 2nd, 3rd and 5th only. Pull away in 2nd, by the time you reach the top end end of 3rd you are already doing 60, so 4th not needed.

    Just re-read from the beginning.

    Does it battle to start from cold?

    Does it only cut out when it has warmed up?

    Does it start again when it is warm?
