Re: Front stand upgrade

Those stands are terrible! I have one and have never got it to sit right so gave up with it. As you lift the bike the two pins in the arms that go on the forks rotate back and it ends up on the calliper bracket, dog poo! I’m going to have a go at engineering the hell out of it tomorrow and see how i...

Re: Black West P3## OEW

Thank you, I loved it until it gave me 6 points and sold it. A few years later when I grew and older head I saw the error of my ways.

Re: Black West P3## OEW

Thanks mate that’s really kind. I think I put some pictures on my thread last year when I was looking for it. I sold it to Lings in Ipswich back in 2000/01 but from there it went to Woodbridge / Melton way. To be honest it could be who knows where by now. This is the third year I have posted a threa...

Re: Black West P3## OEW

Hi Wicky, long time. I would definitely consider buying it back depending on the condition but I would really like to see the old girl again. I do have some pics at home and I’ll put a few in here later. Unfortunately I’m not on FB, I can’t bring myself to do it [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using T...

Re: Black West P3## OEW

<t>Thanks Chris, <br/> I’ve been looking for 3 years now, called local dealerships asking if they’ve MOT’d it but other than keep posting my annual request for the form massive to keep an eye out I’m not really sure what to do. <br/> All help gratefully recurved.

Re: Black West P3## OEW

I used the DVLA tax and MOT checker. I have no idea how to find the location though. However when I spoke to DVLA the year before last when I submitted the V88 the chap on the phone asked if had checked with insurance companies! I’m not sure what he was referring to but I can’t see how an insurance ...

Re: Black West P3## OEW

I have mate, I check every year and it’s SORN in the winter and taxed in the summer. I even wrote to the DVLA on a V88 I think, asking for the location but they said no. I can’t think how else to find the location m.

Black West P3## OEW

Hi gents, This is my annual look out for the first love of my bike life! I used to own a P reg storm that was sprayed in West McLaren colours back in 1998. Like the young fool I was, I sold it and have always wondered what happened to her. If anyone knows can you let me know, I would love to see the...

Re: Man down again FFS!

Well done Mac, sounds like a job with the council is the way to go. I know they are annoying but it sounds like they genuinely want to look after you; or they know where there rat poison is kept and a man that knows how to use it.......... Are they still talking about the fully electric vans? Can yo...
