Bought a model 14 to tinker with over the winter and keep me out of the reach of her indoors

That looks like it will take a few hours to sort out. Good luck. :beer:

Thanks Tolly, I think I will be hitting the clubs spares department over the next few weeks. at least progress is pointing in the aimed direction with a few things starting to come together i.e. the top end and and carb done.

A little more done, up to now, I have stripped the bike down checking items/component's on the way and either replaced repaired cleaned or painted as required. Fitted rings honed barrel lapped valves all new gaskets, carb cleaned rebuilt with new jets etc, checked gearbox needed new kick start(broken) & gear shaft (week)return springs and o rings, gaskets, stripped blasted body side panels/mud guards forks/shocks etc re painted/coated.

Looks in great condition. A 12volt conversion too? If you are stripping down the front forks, please post some pictures as that is my next task on my 14.

Did you manage to track down a new kickstart? If so, where did you get it from as I am still trying to find one!

The bike came with a kick start lever, I bid you good luck in locating one as they are like hen's teeth.

Clearly no L/W owner wishes to grasp the metal and look into commissioning a batch for others. No good relying on club spares to sort it as we have no sample or manpower spare to go out and source them. The club may assist in funding the project subject to costings.

Come on people, without this type of background work you L/W owners will always play second fiddle.

I have snooped/asked around and will continue to do so at getting a batch made to no avail up to now. Unfortunately foundry's and the like are few and far up this end
