My Victor project

Postby Mike A » Sat May 27, 2017 10:01 am

A couple of shots of my Victor,before and now, still work in progress as you can see but it's almost there now..so far it's had the head rebuilt by RTS, taken out to 32mm and flowed, big valves and springs etc, new barrel and forged piston, crank rebuilt by RTS and CCM rod fitted, NOS B50 oil pump, MX cam, PES three speed box, PES clutch to match, both tanks from Terry Weedy, as was the rear wheel and Metisse swingarm, XL 250 front end, flattrack seat from Red Max, exhaust I did myself...just a bit of fun really for ripping round some fields I have access to, maybe Redmarley next year?

Yes Stew, very lucky, it's something we (my son and I) have to look after very carefully what with access to so many sites being prohibited due to idiots that spoil it for everyone.

Seriously nice "trail" bike! My guess is you'll soon have your fields conquered and will be looking for someone else to challenge. What kind of tires are those?

Thanks! the rear is IRC, cheap and cheerful, and the front is Dunlop, but they have the same trials pattern and should do for what I want. I have other sets also, including MX tyres so can always change if need be.

Nice project , and great transformation. I have just started a B44VS project too, close by in Gloucester, but will be going back down the standard route.

A question for you - do you still have the original forks that came off - and if so, would you be willing to part with them?

Thanks

Jim

No forks but I do have some other bits and pieces, including a decent VS front wheel, that might help you along.

Any parts that I am missing sound very promising - when could I come round and have a look?

It would be easier to let me know what your looking for and I'll see if I have it, I dont have a lot, as you can see from my photo but basically I have the front wheel, some engine parts and I do have a brand new 30mm Amal carb for a VS, still boxed and never fitted.

I am looking for most of the front end but do have yokes / speedo / I am missing fork legs and wheel / 8'' sls alloy brake plate

How much would you be looking at for the wheel?

Thanks

Jim

tridentperu in Gloucester, Mike A in Cheltenham, There must be a pub in Churchdown...

Otherwise try using a Private Message (box on the right)....pm might spare everyone the dirty bit of the negotiations.

Ha, thanks for the heads up re the pm, I've been looking for that option being new to this particular rather technical ( to me) forum!
