Ron Russ passed away last Saturday,after a short battle with asbestos cancer.Funeral today,there must have been over a hundred people there.He was a perfectionist engineer of old bike engines,one of the very few now who do things right.He will be sorely missed.Regards John.

I have a 1927 Scout gearbox with the end cut from the mainshaft.There s about 1/8in left of the flats for the  k/s ratchet,so I have the dimensions.Can someone tell me how long the flats are,and how long the thread is?Regards John.

British Bikes / Panther 600 1939 or 1946?

I have a Panther 600 rigid frame, girder fork,which I am starting to restore.The engine no is W100 6339,frame no is 14288,BAP gearbox dated 1946.The frame is the postwar genny mount type,but the no appears to be prewar, going from Jones book where he says 14811 is 1940. The engine is 1939.Do we have a Panther expert who doesnt want 20 quid to tell me anything but the time of day.Do I have a bitser,or a 46 model made from prewar bits?Regards John..
