Technical Discussion Forum / Dismantling the fork
« Last post by Thomas on May 19, 2018, 06:01:01 PM »
Hello all!
I need to detach my girder fork. Is there a specific procedure to follow or is there something difficult to deal with? Do the bushes and axles need special care? I can only imagine that the central spring is difficult to detach and put back into place again.
Cheers, Thomas

Hi Stuart,

I have used Armoto for a very rare BTH Dynomag. They did a beautiful job, and were very happy to show me their facilities. They are very well equipped, and handle a very wide range of work.

Evening All,

I am in process of restoration of a 1927 Model 5.

I'm looking for recommendations for someone to restore and refurbish the magneto/dynamo to "as factory finish" condition and convert to two brush operation at the same time.

I have tried ringing Burnham-on-Crouch (Samuels?) for over two weeks with no reply to the telephone.

I have sadly (I deduce) offended Armoto who gave me a quotation for the work and I asked if I could drive to Chesterfield and view the facility and see the work they are doing to satisfy myself I wanted them to do the work (as I don't know anyone who can recommend them and I can't find any testimonials) - since that email they are now not replying to me.....oops.

So, can any member recommend someone to restore and refurbish the unit, managing the polishing, painting and internal works to a standard just like it left the factory? I can manage the dull nickel plating of the badge myself once it is removed.

Fingers crossed.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Regards

Stuart

Parts Wanted / Magdyno 1930 Sunbeam Model 9
« Last post by Arthur Farrow on May 15, 2018, 11:49:11 AM »
I am lending my Sunbeam to a friend for the Banbury Run...it just seems to have developed a Magneto fault. Dynamo is fine.

Anybody got a spare unit in good order?

Hi All,

The next W. Mids group meeting is coming up on Thursday 19th May, at a NEW VENUE. This is the Royal Oak, Compton Road, Wolverhampton. The pub is very motorcycle-friendly, compete with Sunbeam posters, and the landlord is keen to host us.

I will be there from 7:30, and I look forward to seeing you there.

Paul
