Issue 28: VelocetteIssue Twenty Eight: "Summer" 2006

  • BSA B40 v TRIUMPH T100: Not so much a head-to-head as a riding comparison, with each bike examined by our cross-generational road test team. Can you teach a new dog old tricks?
  • BSA ROCKET 3: last month we looked at the bike's beginnings; this month Frank Westworth rides one
  • DAVE MINTON IN CANADA: Part Three of the series, in which Dave's BMW R80 doesn't break down and instead DLM rescues a stranded Kawasaki rider
  • ELECTRICAL TESTING: how to check electrical components - in this episode, the horn and bridge-type rectifier
  • HOW TO with Humbernut: part one about making your own control cables. Cue jokes about getting fluxed, cats' arses and a variety of nipples
  • NORTON ROTARY RACER: The background to the rotor-racer project (you'll be able to read the rest of that story on here)
  • PANTHER 100: Steve Wilson rides a 1955 swinging arm Panther Model 100, one with wide bars and a slim saddle. Steve also stops off at the London Motorcycle Museum for their Ride It Day.
  • READERS RealClassics: Real classic bikes in real use; from a Montesta Impala to an A10 to an bright blue Continental to a Fastback LR and even an Ariel Arrow and a very unusual Velo.
  • ROYAL ENFIELD 350 BULLET: If you buy one of the new 350s at a knock-down price, just what are you letting yourself in for?
  • TRIUMPH 350 PROJECT: The engine rebuild. Hang on, haven't we already done the engine? How many times does it need to be taken apart and put back together?
  • TRIUMPH T120R: Buying a 1970 Bonneville, then riding it, then rebuilding it, then riding it to a show or two, and winning a prize or two, too
  • VELOCETTE MSS: This smart 1958 Velo 500 started swiftly enough - for its owner. Frank Westworth took it for a spin and enjoyed the experience but found himself perplexed by many of Veloce's engineering decisions

    news about Beezumph, Beaulieu ticket giveaway, PUB rebuilds a dynamo, Dave Minton answers his own quiz questions, and Frank Westworth starts work on an Ariel, in The Shed.
