Re: Black box silencer - finish??

Think the finish was black chrome, wasn't much of it left on my 72 silencer, but was still present on the down pipe

Re: Lock down projects

After a bit of head scratching and lots of measuring, finally completed the rear brake pedal and brake light switch bracket, the original fury one for comparison below.

Re: Lock down projects

Hi Ian
The frame is an actual fury/bandit one suppose I should call it a bandit as its having a t100 engine in it.
The A65 is a 66 spitfire which I am slowly trying to get back to standard.

Re: 1972 B25SS FRONT ENGINE MOUNT

Couldn't get one of my B50 engines out of the frame, due to the previous owner missing out all the spacers.
Had to remove the rocker box studs out one by one, take the box off and lift the engine up vertically.
Quite a time consuming job, bsa fitted them for a reason.
