EVENTS / John Marston Memorial Run
« Last post by shorrock on February 21, 2018, 10:04:53 AM »
Hello Folks

The date for the proposed MSC&R  John Marston Memorial Run from Oswestry to Rhos-on-Sea & Memorial Dinner is fast approaching. As you probably know, Peter Giles and Trevor Davies have been asked to organise the occasion and we now need to get some firm arrangements in place.

By way of a reminder, the aim is to encourage as many participants as possible – either riding motor cycles or travelling by car in support of the Event.  The Year 2018 provides us with an opportunity to stage this unique Event – 100 years after the passing of JM – and to celebrate his legacy!!

I therefore attach an Entry Form for the Event and would be grateful if you would complete the form and return it to Trevor Davies ; please let Trevor know by 3rd March whether you will or will not be taking part.

Critical elements of this Event are the Overnight B&B and the Memorial Dinner!  We have to commit to Hotel Room bookings and Dinner numbers by the first week in March.

THERE IS NO NEED TO SEND MONEY AT THIS TIME!! FOR NOW, PETER AND TREVOR JUST NEED TO KNOW YOUR COMMITTED DECISION.

I look forward to hearing from you by the 3rd March.

Thanks in anticipation of your co-operation

Trevor Davies

Parts Wanted / WANTED - SADDLE OR SADDLE FRAME
« Last post by shorrock on February 17, 2018, 04:37:06 PM »

I am looking for a saddle or even just a frame to suit a 1934 Lion. It wants to be 15 or 16 inches wide.  The stay looks like 1 1/8 inch but I am moving house and can't find my calipers!  That can be adapted.  Ken J-Fisher 07982 134991

Technical Discussion Forum / Clutch Plate types

I suppose I should have done a forum search before posting this! I have followed the discussion on clutch plate thickness with interest.  Many times even newly corked plates give the same problem.

My thirties clutches used platess with bent "tangs" that had to be assembled a certain way but I also have some plates that are flat with straight tangs.... which clutch do the latter fit I wonder?

Technical Discussion Forum / Re: 7 1/8" brakes

I shall be very interested in the response; I think brake shoes would be an ideal spare for the club to supply but there is reluctance becasue of the safety issues. Every ridden bike should have a spare set of lined shoes on the shelf IMHO.
The Rudge club supply them for Rudges and they seem to have oversome problems. If there is a standard Honda, Yamaha etc brake shoe that could be modified then that of course would be a good solution too
