VELOCETTE - NEW PARTS IN STOCK
Hello all, we hope you are all keeping safe and well. I had a bit of a nightmare last week while out on the 1954 MSS, having been out for a ride I was just around the corner from home when a white van decided to stop in the middle of the town and proceeded to quickly start to reverse but just did not look to see if anything was behind him, unfortunately it was me and the wife! We were stationary at the time but couldn't get out of the way in time and the rear of the van mounted my front wheel causing a fair bit of damage to the mudguard, snapped the stays, smashed and bend my headlamp, damage to the forks and wheel rim. Gutted as it's my favourite Velo but luckily no one was hurt. So some work is required there. Anyway, just to let you all know about some new products that are now in stock at Tanks Classics
FM1R- BT-H Electronic magneto ignition system
We now have these rather excellent BT-H electronic magnetos for sale, I'm sure you are all aware of these that are great product and upgrade for your Velocette. They are flange mounted like the originals and because they are self-generating, they are just like the original units in that they do not require any battery connection. They are well made and do not look out of place but importantly provide a good reliable spark which always helps with starting. Full fitting instructions are provided. I have a couple fitted to some of my bikes and they work very well. Have a look at them on the website FM1R BT-H Magneto
SL9/22MOD - Dynamo strap fixing pin
Modified dynamo fixing pin that bolts into the crankcase but has a female thread in the top for a 5/16" BSF bolt to actually tighten the strap down onto, however the pin is fixed therefore reducing the risk of stripping the threads in the crankcase by taking it in and out each time you work on the bike.
Some more parts will be coming soon, including handlebars, new fixings for early models and some major engine and frame parts that I am working on, so keep in touch for updates.
Keep riding safe and please get in touch if you have any questions or work enquiries - firstname.lastname@example.org
