Lifting out the spring necessities

This weekend I had planned to go to bike run in Oslo, but things do not always go as you wish.
So instead it was time to get some help and lift the Ariel out of storage from a cellar.
At the same time we lifted a Bultaco Pursang and an incomplete BSA C11 out as well. I am bringing them to the Ekeberg auto jumble next Saturday.

The helpers are having a well-deserved ice cream.

Oskar wanted to test the old man’s Ariel.

If the engine stalls you have to learn to kick it boy.

JAP worm drive

The OK Supreme is nearly ready, there are only a few more things to do. I have been waiting for this part for a long time. The new crank parts where different from the original so a new worm drive had to be made.

First class mail from Sweden.

If the parts fit at first attempt there must be something wrong. I had to grind down the nut, too big for the oil pump housing.

Timing time.

Cranked up for Easter

When I returned home last night this crank was waiting for me at the doorstep. A rather big and furry Easter bunny had delivered an overhauled Norton ES2 crank with a new big end…….Great; I just have to get the crankcases ready now.
