Re: H&H Auction

Thanks everyone. The bike was delivered today. As expected the batteries have had it, so new ones are on order. The rear wheel is slightly stiff. I'll check the chain tension and then check the rear brake caliper / pads. There seems to be a switch in the fairing for a heated seat? Is this correct (...

Re: Posted this on wrong board - oops

I use one of the cheap oil change pumps that you use down the dipstick hole, they clean out the tank really well. Once drained as much as you can there is a bleed point on the left hand side at the tank bottom and slowly on the oil pump iv you want to be completely sure but Silkolene mixes ok in the...

Re: Lovely Commander for sale

I did a little write up on the French many years ago when I was looking for it. It was thought to be in Australia but in fact it was locked Way in Folkestone in a damp garage sine 1981.

I will do another write up for the mag and RealClassic mag soon.

Here is the MCN picture from 1972.
