Thanks for the bearing hint, the replacement bearing has 2 seals so I will do as you suggest.
Cheers

Hi,
It has an Albion 4 speed box, have disassembled and prepared for replacing both bearings and currently looking for a double lip seal to replace the felt seal at drive end.

Hi All,
Next weekend is our Burt Munro rally in Invercargill Southland New Zealand, Burt's home town as featured in the movie The worlds fastest Indian. I meet Burt at the beach in1970's on a day that he popped the barrel of the crankcase on his Velocette. Have some photos that I will find and post to site.

Hi John,
After a look at BSA frame numbers on the mighty web I have found that frame is BSA C10 or C11 from 1951.

Hi John
Yes it would make sense that frame is BSA as well, I will have a close look at motor mounts to confirm these have been added to fit the RE motor. Thanks for your knowledge

Many thanks for the update on the forks, so it will be a bitsa. Based on the New Zealand Kiwi "fix anything" attitude the forks most likely modified after it arrived in NZ. I am interested in finding out what year the bike was sent to NZ and if the frame is for a model D.
There is a small oil tank between motor and gearbox, looks home made to me, has a block of wood as a space filler.
Regards
Neville

Hi,
Managed to get frame number Z0102?337, bit hard to read middle number has been damaged. Frame has very light plates welded at headstock. Photo's of frame and motor attached. Pic of my T100s 1970, I'm second owner purchased in 1973, always been road ready and I have done over 60,000miles on her.

Hi All,
First post from Dunedin New Zealand. I have a Model D that I purchased from a farmer for $15 ( 7 Pounds) about 40 years ago when I was 20 years old. Just starting the restore process, good things take time.
Motor has Serial number D4044 and gearbox has HJP - 2 and ENF-39. The bike has telescopic forks which from my readings would make it around 1947-8 when they were introduced by RE.  As it was sent to New Zealand I wondered if it was a bitza built by RE to get overseas funds post WW2. It is missing the clutch cover tin work, had a home made exterior cover. Was running when purchased.

I would like to know age if possible as the tele forks seem a bit odd, frame does not appear to have been modified.

Regards to all,
Neville
