Re: brake pistons

Hi John,

Doesn't your Honda have a combined brakesystem? In wich one front disc works on its own, and the other front disc works together with the rearbrake?
That could be the reason i think.

I've seen a few Classics that have a chrome liftbar (probably the wrong word?) on both sides of the bike. The Classic that Richard N had (the watercooled one), also had these on both sides. The left one is standard, is the right one homemade? Or can i buy one somewhere, not Anil i think? With the li...

Without the fairing the old girl is prettier. She looks more like a "Classic" beauty.
Because i have a Classic i'm curious of what your askingprice is going to be? Just out of interest.

Re: Number 101

Thanks Richard,
So the 101 number is correct. 100 official LE numbers and the prototype. The rest, although they look like a Classic, have the wrong numbers to be a official Classic, and are in fact replica's.

I allways thought there were 100 LE-Classics made. But i read on Facebook that the total sum was 101?
Any ideas if this is true? If so, why did they not stop at 100?

Re: Water cooling

Hi John, My humble thoughts... I think a waterpump is a flow-pump and not a pressure-pump. I think the size of the radiator dictates how fast the water passes through. This size is calculated by the manufacturer. If you could increase the pressure of the pump, i don't think the water passes quicker?...

The Toolset of a Classic contains a hook. What is it for? I guess it has something to do with the removal of the rearwheel?
If so where do you hook things on?
