Re: Parts general

Is it a lot of work per lens? Or can you make several in one go?
Any ideas pricewise?
I would love to buy a few in case off ever needing them. Red and yellow.

You can contact me and i will get you in touch ...

Re: Parts general

Wasn't there a privat person who could make them at home? He also made them for Suzuki Kettles? I think i've read about it on this Forum?
He made silicon moulds i recall, in wich he made the lenses?
If anyone know who he is, perhaps we could ask him to make a batch.

Re: Parts general

Thanks again Richard!

Who actually made the rearlightunits? No more to be had?
Any ideas as to why there are no more of the units/lenses? Or, are they all being used up making old Interpol 2's into Classic-replicas? smiley

Parts general

While reading some old Classic Bike magazines, i came across a story on Rotary bikes. While telling the story of the Classic, they said that the rearlight of a Classic is from a Aston Martin Lagonda??!! Could this possibly be true?? Hope not, as A/N has no rearlight in stock and in the case you ever...

Re: Registration-number

Richard, I follow your info, exept for the word "cannot", should that not be "can" ? The old number is E731-UWD, and the new number is NOA-343P This numberchange was in 1993 with the old, first owner Alan Watts. Bil Hignett, second and last owner, got the bike in 2009 according to the paperwork i ha...

Registration-number

Sorry, silly question perhaps; what could be a reason for a change of registration-number on a motorbike, as at the same time the bike didn't change the owner. Where i live, in the Netherlands, a motorbike gets a registration-number for live. If a bike has had 10 owners in 10 year,s all the owners w...

Re: Classic part

Hi John, As i'm allways for orginality with bikes and cars, i think i am going for the regulator from A/N. Safe bet i think. Although, having said that, with the CDI-unit i'm going for the Minimag, not original, but again a safe bet according to people who are in the know. The more i speak with and ...

Oh dear, i need something that is hard to get i think. A/N doesnt sell it. As i'm changing my BSA Tornado in a Norton Classic again, the first thing i did is remove the plate with BSA-text on top of the handlebarclamp.

Thanks Richard! I will follow your advice! Your advice on the airfilter is spot on. My Suzuki GS750 from 1977 (twin discs/wirewheels) had exactly the problem with the airfilter you've mentioned. The filter was totaly crumbled. Luckily no engineproblems occured.

My plan is to remove the plugs and squirt a mixture of dieselfuel and silkolene Comp 2 oil in the plugholes. And check that all the 3 sides of both rotors are squirted upon...Turning of the engine by h...

Anyone knows what the metalicgrey-paint on a Classic is comparable with? Could i use a certain metalicgreycolor from a modern VW or Vauxhall that is a perfect match? Or is there a Norton colorcode?
Info very welcome!!
