British Bikes / Albion Gearbox Grease/Oil
« on: January 10, 2022, 05:10:55 PM »
Hi, can anyone tell me if my 1923 Albion Featherlight Gearbox should be filled with Grease or Oil?? It has a ďuseĒ Mobiloil label on the case, but I canít find any info on what it might be? Also when I took it apart, the kickstart spring was loose in the case, so I have no idea how it was originally setup!! Should the spring pull the kickstart gear completely away from the internal gears it meshes with, or should it always be set to be meshed with the internal gears?? Any ideas ??

Thanks Ian

Hi, I am looking for a Bardon choke control for my 1923 restoration project, and now I have got the right gearbox for my machine, I am missing a kickstart lever, and the Albion gearbox lever. If anyone has any spares, or a contact, I would love to know.. Thanks Ian

I have a engine block, which has 2 engine mounts missing, so I have a slight problem that I canít bolt and fit it to the frame. Can anyone recommend someone who can make low quantity metal items such as these, Which also  donít cost a fortune?? Thanks Ian

British Bikes / Attaching Rim to Wheel??
« on: September 29, 2021, 10:45:21 AM »
Hi, I am restoring a 1923 McKenzie motorcycle, which has a belt rim, which should be attached to the rear wheel spokes. Has anyone got any recommendations of the best way of doing this, as obviously it needs to be secure enough so it doesnít break spokes etc??
