Hi Jilles,

Loving the bike did you fabricate the primary cover? and is that a devimead pressure plate with needle roller?

The tank is great that it has the cut out for a TT carb are you running one or two taps ? and is it baffled?

I'm just about to cut my petrol (gas) tank and oil tank open to secure the baffles that have come loose......

All the best

Jon

Good morning all,

Thanks for the kind words, good to hear after all the work that's gone into this project. Amazing how much time and effort these matters mostly take...

Tobias;

-Thing is, in the Netherlands, for Vintage bikes there's hardly any legislation, if any. So yes, it's legal, as there's no legislation. Even with regards to noise.

Jon;

-Yes, I fabricated the primary cover. Or rather, heavily modified it. These are sold as "blanks", in which you cut the cutouts needed for sprocket and clutch.

Remember the remark I made about running lights without battery? That meant I had to "cobble up" a mounting for the alternator behind it, that also carries the cover itself. Then I opted for modifying with rivets, to complement the style the bike was built in.

-The tank is baffled, with one single tap. I don't expect anyone having problems with a single tap, but then this bike's not heavily tuned or anything. It is an Exact Manx "copy", but not sure which type of carburetter they used on the Norton Manx (I do seem to recall it needn't nescessarily be an AMAL one). Do know they had an awfully long inlet tract to boost performance, which dictated the tank cutout.

I was tempted to order it in England with John Williams (of the Tank Shop), until I found out there's this guy over in Amsterdam that "shelves" them!? Nope, he ain't got no Website...
As I wanted a Manx tank, he did have to order it though, but nowhere near the year-and-a-half delivery times you are usually quoted for one of these...

If I wanted a Sprint tank, He'd have it in stock. (NEWSFLASH!) These tanks seem elusive, normally... If I'm correct, this one was ordered in England by him, but most he "stocks" are from Eastern Europe. (Hungary, if I recall correctly.)

-Regarding the pressure plate; I actually thought it was a modified (drilled) dominator one, though I'm not sure what an original one would look like. I used to own a NorSU ("Münch", with a 1200 TTcar engine in it) that portrayed the same sort of pressure plate, so I didn't give it any second thought? I have no reason to believe the bearing is anything special.

Jilles.

Looking great.

I love the open race clutch and the big 5 gallon alloy tank looks awesome.
