GEARCHANGE LEVER , DONE



i've asked QM from BRITISHIRONWORKS about a stainless rod end m8. he send me the spare 10 days ago, i receive it wednesday.......... actually post seems low tension......with this one i can finish the gearchange lever. i've just a little rod m8 to do to replace the threaded bar .

COOL DEAL





a few times ago , i've built a stainless fork brace, with Phil's help for the visual welds. this spare was for a friend in UK . in exchange i received a lot of stickers with the blog logo. if you want a couple of them , send me your postal adress

IN THREAD WE TRUST


today i was checking for the last nuts and bolts needed, i think it's good , in the same time i' ve count the different threads . there's around 10 different sort of thread on the beezer, i don't see it coming. i found : BSW, BSF, UNF, UNC(different than whitworth on 1/2 just for 1 thread,crual life)
METRIC, METRIC FINE, CYCLE, BA, NPT, BSP. few of them are hand made, in 1 ex, flying nuts forbidden.
