Viva GT: Turning engine, brakes & clutch

A huge hurdle was crossed today, the engine turned over on the starter (plugs out) it was only a few seconds, as the battery was almost flat. The battery is on charge, but it was a special moment to hear the starter crank the engine over with no real issues....

All shaken up

I went for a ride tonight on the BSA Ariel 3, terrible camera action, still got to find a good way to mount it to the bike. Its good at demonstrating the sheer fun of having next to no suspension.

FBHVC Ride it day report

Nick and myself got the Trikes of Doom out and did a 19 mile ride (yes it was 19 miles Nick) around the countryside North of Nuneaton. Henry still has the edge over Stan, but its closer than it was, mainly due to the mainshaft bearings on the drive wheel...

Not quite a drag race!

Yesterday was supposed to be the end of the season races at Avon park, and I was due to pop over and have a few runs up the track. Weather played a big part in the process of going or doing something else. In the end the races were curtailed...

Cut Away Engine

Its moving

Here is a Video I made today of the cut away engine in its full glory, its not a great video, it was dark in the garage and the camera man was a bit useless. But I forgive you martin as you are far far better and making cars than...
