PAH Is alive and kicking
« on: April 29, 2018, 03:42:00 pm »
Well I finally managed to get down to some serious Bike maintenance on my 1953 C11 PAH. Stripped and sorted the oil pump. re-seated the NRV in the engine. took off the oil tank and cleaned out the gunge and remaining oil. Found the engine oil that was not in the tank. It was in the primary drive (but not leaking out). filled the gearbox and drained the gunge in the forks. The tank had petrol in form god knows when and fifth kick she started. A quick run up the road and all seems good except she is not charging but thats for another day. At least I can use her for a couple of rallies.

Yes she is Pete. Not molested the patina or the dirt where possible. I wondered if she originally had a single seat as the rear mudguard had extra holes in?

Panniers? Silencer was cut short, might have had a tippy out bit to keep panniers clean?

More maintenance done on PAH as she was not charging.  With no output from the dynamo I stripped and checked the brushes, field and armature windings.all the resistances were correct so I took of the RB107 regulator and fitted an old mcr2 I had lying around.  Then flashed the dynamo for good measure.  Started her up and as the reveal picked up the needle went more negative!  Flashed the dynamo again and she now charges correctly.  Even the charging light on the genuine red spot ammeter works.

That has to add quite a bit to the value :)
 Lovely original bike

You'll have to join me down Mudeford Quay one Sunday and shoe all the others, with their pristine restorations, what a real bike should look like ;) ;D

I'd say, as far as the general public go, it's about a 50/50 split between the comments on how wonderful that shiny Triumph (or whatever) looks and "I like to see them in original condition".

Each to their own I suppose but scruffy old bikes are certainly the best :-X

I've been down the quay the last three Sundays, but not turned up till about 3ish, so I guess you are going earlier.
Just old Dennis (always seem to be there), and, a guy on A10, and the couple with their immaculate T140's .....and the old Japs crowd there when I arrived this week.....always nice relaxed feel down there...and I do like the oriental ginger ice cream :D

I will soon put a "patina" on my c10 when its finished....just in time for winter riding :)

Well finally got round to fitting new cups, cones, brake shoes  and tyre to the front hub. I managed to fit 11 ball bearings in instead of the book saying 10 and there was still plenty of clearance. No need some new brake shoes and a tyre for the back.

Thanks Ron, so now he has so many that he needs a way to keep up with them. :D  Owen you need to leave some for the others that want one. ;)

I'm not allowed any more until I sell the B20 and even then I have a large penance of buying her indoors several cases of prosecco
