    Nope..... Realistically, as it is a 'Sunday best' bike I do not need to hide the wheel away.. It will make it easier to clean too

    I have a pair of them.. one for each side but I am only using the right hand one
    They were made for a member on here about 16 years ago.. Been passed around a few times and I ended up with them

    They were made at a dairy machine manufacturers out of bits and bobs of 50mm stainless tube and a couple of elbows !

    That's not oil, it's Harry Monk. I'd be that excited too. I wonder if I could turn mine into something interesting that I'd want to keep.....................

    Trouble is when you're as retarded, incompetent and inept as I am, you have to pay someone to do everything for you and that would cost a fortune. I can just about put fuel in, but only with adult supervision.

    Hactchoo aly....
    Any one can do what I did .. If you are somewhat short of mechanical aptitude find a mate to help.. It is amazing how many blokes want a project but for one reason or another cannot have anything of their own.
    Working on project bikes is not work... it is a labour of love :)

    Not what you were whispering in my ear last night.

    Have you seen the post from a new member in Hampshire who could do with a hand diagnosing a knocking noise on their Bird?.............

    Trust me John, when you're as thick and useless as me it's not a labour of love. It's a lesson in controlled violence!

    Pretty sure I know exactly what it is but I am not prepared to say just from a recording.. It is almost impossible to diagnose a noise that way.. But if I am right there is little to worry about other than it is annoying until fixed

    Oh, do tell.

    Other that what I posted in the correct place in the relevant thread, the following also occurred to me;

    - big end bearing
    -oil pickup in sump misaligned and being hit by something spinning
    - badger in the junction box

    But I still think what I posted in the correct place on the correct thread is more likely
