Re: Little BSS cafe racer

hi Françoise

the VM carb, I think it is a good choice.
it is possible to adjust it much more exactly and a huge reduction in fuel consumtion can be the result.

Re: 1968 B44 Victor Special re-commission

hi kiwi

I guess the DID 520 VT2 is unusual small for a modern chain.
I will mesure the clip link , because this is the widest point at the all chain.
( iff I am right it is 21 mm wide )

as they are welded partly only at the inside, it is not sure it needs a replace one.
