Excellent news.

Mangotsfield born and bred and the BSA resides there at the moment but I live just off of Rodway Common. Bought the the bike from a chap in Hanham.

Are you planning a run up to Tipputts boxing day?

Not got an S2 but I do have an S3 which I haven't really got round to riding yet as I want to refit the original fairing rather than the M2 one it has now. I just love torquey engines in light bikes the same as you I expect. :ban

Re: B44 : one pretty tank, one tap, an idea for a reserve ?

Any chance of some more info on the Jawa tap?

Heres an ebay link to the tap shown above but you might need a nut (and sealing washer) but this looks like it would give whats required.

Cheers for the welcome fellas. Hope to get the oil lines replaced ready for Boxing Day Tipputts Inn. Although I might take the Buell S1.

Oil line dismeters for a B441VS 1970

I would like to change the oil lines on my Victor special as they are cracking and look to be too thin. What is the internal diameter that I need? Can anyone recommend a good supplier and is it possible to get clear lines that will last?
