Are you asking a question, making a statement, or what?

That reg. was issued in the London area from March 1908 to April 1909.
I am referring to the reg. in the first picture. The BF reg. (no listing either) crept in after I posted.

Off tack a bit, but in the 70s I went to the local Ford dealer for whatever and was behind a hipster type at the trade counter. He opened up with "I've got an Escort super dooper etc., with a double etc. etc.
The old hand behind the counter looked at him coldly and said "so what do you want then, a fu**in' medal?"

As Rex said, the ammeter should respond to revving of the engine; battery charged or not. From what you say there is not a problem with your new switch.

RAL3007 - black red. That's the colour for the C12 as in your text. Your heading is C15 which is probably a different colour.

Gently tap the old ball into the seat with a drift before fitting the new ball.

If he was a senior director in 1949 he'd be getting on a bit (as of a few days ago}.

Carl, I use a bloke near Bordon; if that's within range. I'll ring him in the morning to see how he's fixed and send you a PM.

We got hold of a cyclemotor in the 60s (borrowed?) and attached it to a bicycle. It had friction drive to the rear wheel and clamped to the rear downtubes. We ran it around for a bit, which was probably illegal. but who cared in those days.
We also reckoned we held the record for the most people on a 98cc Sun motorbike. Six in the New Forest woods. It was OK until, after a short distance, we came a cropper and the bloke on the tank got his hand crushed by the handlebar. Bloody good fun and all drug and alcohol free.

As memory comes back I think T21 or T90 forks were used. I think all C series forks (350/500) are similar, but changed over the years. That may broaden your search. Good luck.

They did make a scrambler version of the Cub. Check the spec.
