Re: Tracing age of a Windle outfit

Thanks Dan :lol: Yes, the size of the sidecar grids in general are very worrying. That swing arm & rear end puts the bike in the 80's. I'd say it is possibly a converted 350. I have a pic of the first 350 chassis Terry built for Bill Hodgkins, I think 1984??? The rear end in your pics is identical t...

Re: Tracing age of a Windle outfit

Hi Dan, hope your well? It's a shame Terry never numbered his outfits like Colin Jacobs did. Terry built me my first outfit the late end of 1974, must have been one of the earliest one's he made after splitting with John Crick. I still have all the reciepts for the bike with the dreaded VAT on them,...

Re: Derek Bayley

Nick & Gerry's fairing on the Renwick Konig was so simple, just rounding the edges but made so much difference in the aerodynamics & the looks.
They rode a lovely Vincent outfit aswell.

Re: URGENT Electrical help required

Hi Lisa, I'm not up to date with the 4 cyl F2's!!!!
Sounds like a major earth leak.
Do you run an alternator?, if so, check the whole of the charging circuit, you have a permanant live supply to the alternator to "excite" it.
The live could be via your kill switch circuit.

Re: Wheel Rims

I'd try companies like Demon Tweeks, at the end of the day, split rim wheels came from the car world. Measure the diameter of the hub, inner flange to inner flange & how many mounting holes there are, they will ask you that. You dont say who made your wheel? There are companies out there who special...

Re: Dick Hawes

Very sad news.
It was Dick who suggested that I "lay" my Puma engine down instead of having it verticle.
That was the begining of building my own outfit & yes, with the engine laying down. 20 years ago!!!
