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’s a good idea, as always the devil is in the detail or rather how much! Somebody with little mechanical knowledge will need greater detail than an experienced fettler so it may be difficult to find the right level of instruction, but hey there’s always the forum to help out if someone overreaches themselves (I’m speaking from experience here)

I think that sounds like a damn good idea there. As I know what I do from picking it up over the years and learn by visually seeing something, step by step pictures would be good. And as Steve has mentioned, the forummers can always pitch in with more advice if needed.
You sick little monkey!!!! Holy crap!!!!

Good idea - I could do with picking up stuff from others.

I've been doing something similar at work. When an unusual job arises, like the recent umbilical splice or having to cut a profile in a seal for the BOP as we didn't the correct parts, I'll make a photo record of the various stages in order that my relief may use it, should the job need repeating.

Excuse for a piccie.....

Perhaps we should expand the forum to cover classic oil rigs?
On the other hand, it is a good picture to show someone who is moaning about bike wiring... :D

It certainly is a classic, in every meaning of the word. Old, rusty, falling to bits, can't get parts, needs constant maintenance and painting.

Only repainting it as the engine had to come out any way, so might as well sort a few minor imperfections out well its apart..... :?
If you think it's not worth me doing one then thats not a problem, I won't waste any of my time bothering, no skin off my nose.
