B50SS it's here!

Post by Classicrider » Wed Mar 08, 2017 5:43 pm

Arrived yesterday, went for a quick spin, what a lovely little bike!

Hers a few snaps, the outdoor ones are mine, the garage shots, his. I also shot a short video of it running which refuses to upload just now, sorry.

Hi Paul
I see you have a digital Daytona speedo and Tach. The info on these says they do not work with positive earth. How are the wired on the bike? To get them to work.

Hi Patrick,

When I re-wired the bike, it was wired negative earth. If you look at my my wiring diagram or "My B50 project" in the Project bikes section, all will be revealed!

Cheers,

Pete

He's flogged it, passed it on, in through the outdoor,it has shuffled off its mortal (lucas) coil,it has gorn..it is no more, it sings with the choir invisible, deceased, it is bereft of his ownership, has turned up its curly toed slippers and left his parish, the door has closed, the horse bolted and trumpet sounded, the Poste finale has been heard...all is silent on the B50SS front.
Who's bought it then..anyone on here?

Yes, I saw it advertised for sale some weeks ago on the ''Carandclassic' site, £7500 I think.

In the advert it was described as "The best B50 in the world", if I remember correctly, yet no one seems to want to keep it and ride it.
I seem to recall the bike collection was being reduced, so this was one of them that had to go.

That would be some claim 'the best b50 in the world' in who's eyes ? is the question.
