Re: Seeley Honda 750

I have been out in the sunshine with the Classic Bike magazine chappies today doing the photo shoot of the Seeley. The feature should appear in the October edition (published last week in September). The weather was glorious and we had a great time, Gez (rider/journo) and Tim (photographer) were bot...

Re: Suzuki TS400 crankcase screws

Hello Martyn,

I don't think you will need an impact drive if you are now using socket head screws. I use "feel", but I have stripped a few M6 case screws in the past so now have an idea of how far to go :lol: . About 6 - 8 lbs/ft or 10Nm should do it.

Cheers Geoff

Re: Seeley Honda 750

I had my first go at carb synchronisation on a 4 pot lump. It turned out to be a fairly easy process with the appropriate kit.

Re: What did you do Today

A lovely day at Castle Combe race circuit 8) for the North Glos club meeting. I went to support a couple of chums who compete in the Desmo Due championship. The Seeley got loads more attention than the race bikes lol. Giles Hepworth with his kawasaki green (?) Ducati https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/73...

Re: Seeley Honda 750

Hello all, I have been contacted by the guys from Classic Bike magazine with a request to include my Seeley in a forthcoming feature they will run. I am presuming it might be about the various bikes (or chassis) with donor engines which were prevalent at the time to match Japanese power with well ha...

Re: Chroming Service

Hi, When I restored my T500 Marque Restore did the silencers, Head light "ears", Head light shell, front & rear mudguards, fork lowers handle bar clamps. This was in 2008.
