Has your Voskhod broke again? Suffering dodgy Italian electrics? Post your tales of woe here. Or ask odd questions about the rear wheel spacer on a Vincent Black Widow, should it take your fancy.

It lives -at last

After many years putting my Speed-Twin back together from all the boxes most of it came in, I tried kicking it over today.
Expected to do lots of kicking and swearing but it actually fired after 3 or 4 kicks!
Absolutely amazed and delighted :D

Oil pressure button came out fairly quickly and it's circulating back to the tank nicely.
Obviously a bit more fettling needed but I noticed the right hand exhaust is already looking "golden", the left is still nice and shiny chrome coloured. I guess now it's running I'll have to try and strobe it.
