    Australian Twincam Thread

    If these are required by RP, I've got some stuff to send to him. Can go in the same parcel if need be, no point in paying two shipping charges to Auss.

    Australian Twincam Thread

    Even though the 'Twink ' is under powered, notoriously unreliable has only 8 valves it's still rated and admired by shall we say the older generation as been the one and only twink! Even though it has been overtaken in the power and reliability by the modern engines with the likes of zetec and red tops it's still the dogs the round ones of the twink world😉 That LOTUS word across the rocker cover is enough to attract anyone's attention and conversation no matter what it's in, can we say that for anything else NO.

    Depends on how good you are with a welder and capable of fab work for shaft shrouds and mounts. If you can do this you can do the conversion for about £120.

    Rare, Unique or Prototypes

    Never seen one of those before!! ....looking round it, it looks like something Relient would produce using parts from quite a few suppliers, door handles BL rear lights and front indicators Vauxhall no dobt all the running gear Ford. Also has a distinct Citreon look to some parts.

    Pinto Exhaust Manifold Gaskets

    The firing ring ideally needs to be fully covered by metal on either side or in time it may pose a problem.
  6. That's a nice looking mk3, how did you hear of it?

    Anyone guess this bike brand

    My first thoughts were along the Henderson lines, though to late for that! but then your location swerved me to the Nimbus. TBH I've only ever seen one and that was at a very large motorcycle show where people travel from other countries to the UK to show their bikes. Nice looking bike though, somewhat different to the norm.

    Pinto Exhaust Manifold Gaskets

    The upper ones look the better quality. As long as the gasket is not smaller than the head port be ok. The lower ones look like mass produced cheapness.

    If it had been a Brit one I might have done it from memory 🤓 But it's not, had to have a dig around. Nimbus ?
