I've been sent pictures of this little box. 2 stud fixing and looks by it's size to be 2 speed. The serial number seems to be MRP548 but the lower portion of the P is indistinct. It's been suggested it might be from a motorised delivery cart or similar. I think it's available if anyone is interested

British Bikes / Anyone recognise this footrest?
« on: May 15, 2020, 07:37:02 PM »
I have a handed pair of these folding footrests that I think may be Enfield. The multi-hexagon fitting at the frame end certainly says Enfield and is the right 1/2" size. The pedal part, I'm not so sure. The rubbers are Enfield India ones but discount those. I'm hoping to fit hem (or something more correct) to a US export Scrambler model made in small numbers so no parts books and only the usual low resolution catalogue pictures to go on.
Any ideas please!

Identify these bikes! / RE 'Flea' type engine? What is it for?!
« on: March 07, 2020, 12:09:45 PM »
This site seems to be a bit sleepy of late so this recent discovery by a pal of mine may interest you all. From the garage clearance of a well known and long time Royal Enfield expert comes this odd beast. It has been suggested by someone who knows RE 2-strokes well that the top end is Flea (RE 125,) but there are no numbers on the cases at all. The big puzzle is the curious worm drive. Also, if the carburettor bowl (no markings on carb,) is oriented downwards the engine sits on it's side with the other crank shaft pointing upwards yet this shaft has a cotter pin cut away, presumably for some sort of starter, but that puts it in a horizontal plane? The other shaft has a taper, clutch? Or drive of some sort? But if a clutch, why outboard of the worm? We know Enfield made motors for their lawn motors and during the war made something described as 'oil engines' (which are presumably hydraulic units) for driving tank turrets - could this be for that purpose?

British Bikes / Identify this cam follower please?

Does anyone recognise this? The bore is 5/8", it is 4" overall and 1" wide. It was in a box of bits and may not be motorcycle at all. It is unused by the look of it. Thanks chaps,

Autojumble / Yardley Gobion Autojumble 18th April 2020
« on: February 01, 2020, 12:12:14 PM »
Some of you may remember that the Midshires Branch of the Royal Enfield OC held an autojumble at Willoughby Village Hall a couple of years ago. Despite the organisers being the REOC this was a general/all makes motorcycle jumble. It was a great success, lots of parts found new homes at sensible prices and as a bonus, it was a good social event with quite a few riders making it the focus of a ride out. Well, we're doing it again, this time hosted by the Home Counties Branch of the REOC (but don't be fooled, we're nearer the Midlands than South!)
Although this is an REOC organised event all makes of motorcycle are welcome along with clothing, literature, tools, anything relevant. It's the perfect opportunity to clear that stuff you've been tripping over for years, hopefully making you some money and someone else happy!
The Home Counties Autojumble will take place on Saturday 18th April in the Village Hall, Chestnut Road, Yardley Gobion, Towcester, Northants, NN12 7TW. Doors open at 10.00, event closes at 4.00.
There will be tea, coffee and cake available inside the hall to keep you going and the Hall has the usual facilities...
Entry 3 on the door, proceeds to Club funds and the Branch's chosen charity, Mind (for mental health). Stallholders 5 per table inside, outside pitches available, (especially if you have bikes for sale,) price by arrangement. Book more than one table if you're really serious! Set up from 08.30. For bookings or queries please contact Mark at trials59@yahoo.co.uk, ( Note: I'll post a contact phone number nearer the time)

Look for the signs as you enter the village, there is limited parking at the Hall but plenty of space nearby including the adjacent pub car-park, (Coffee Pot Tavern, High Street, Yardley Gobion NN12 7TN) please park with consideration for residents!
Stallholders will be given preference at the Hall.

The village is close to the old A5 north of Milton Keynes (the Super Sausage transport cafe is just 1 mile away,) and not far from the M1 Junction 15, just off the A508.

Stalls are booking fast!

British Bikes / B G England of Dunstable
« on: September 13, 2019, 07:03:57 PM »
I am re-commissioning a 1960 Royal Enfield Super Meteor that was originally sold by dealers B G England of Dunstable (and possibly Luton?) The history of the bike is important and I'd like to reproduce the original Dealer sticker that was unfortunately obliterated by the previous owner. I have a very poor and blurry photo of the original but to get a replacement made I need a good image. Can anyone help please?
Thanks,
REgards, Mark

British Bikes / Identify this workshop tool please!
« on: August 05, 2019, 12:01:35 PM »
This came with a load of Enfield special tools but it's not the Crusader crank extractor that I thought it was. Could anyone identify it please? And if it's of use it's for sale as cheap as you like, or swap for anything Redditch Enfield

Note: Outer diameter 5 & 3/16" inner 2 & 1/2"

Japanese Bikes / Source of pannier keys?
« on: October 31, 2018, 07:30:23 PM »
I'm sorry if this is OT but it's not a subject that fits into an easy category! I have a set of Yamaha factory accessory panniers and their frames that I want to sell but I can't find the keys. Is there anyone who might be able to provide or cut these? There don't seem to be any numbers on the locks. The bike was (I no longer have it,) a 2003 600 Diversion, if that makes any difference. :-\

British Bikes / Identify these footrests please!
« on: October 18, 2018, 12:11:28 PM »
These footrests came to me from a garage clearance. I cannot find pictures of anything like them. What you can't see in the picture is that the inboard end has a fine daisy serration presumably for adjustment. They have a part number cast in to one rest, A120/124.RX/2 MP A1(the M and P are vertical)  They are 10" & 8-3/4" respectively. Could the MP be for Metal Profiles? And of course, they are for sale if anyone recognises them!
