The Guzzi is safe at home, along with the Tribsa, XL185s and the SRX.

Should just be a case of getting a log book it still has its Reg plate and its last tax disc from 1977 was only on the road for 3 years then parked up and left

And the FT500, the B31, the Chinese Camino Clone, the B25/40, Bertie Batavus and various other bits of Ariel 3.
And then there's the other NSU, more Ariel 3s and the Project Jincati which are still at the old storage facility.
I think that's about all.
For now !

Think I shall add it to my recently started future project collection (or pile of c##p in the garage as the wife calls it) along with the rescued 1930s. Villiers water pump and the 66 MGB GT that is my current project. Would be nice to get it running again

Some lovely person bought me a Batavus Auspuff as poor Bertie's is missing. Good news is that it fits, the puzzling thing is how to mount the bracket on the silencer. If appears that the previous auspuff was attached to the bottom mount of the shock absorber and other pictures of the same model appear to show that it attaches to a bracket from the wheel spindle, as in the picture below:

Both these solutions seem WRONG to me. Unless the shock absorbers don't absorb and the swing-arm doesn't swing........

Eddie, I don't suppose there's any chance you could take some pictures of how the auspuff on your Batavus is mounted please ?

NB Auspuff = exhaust !

Seems a strange way to mount the silencer.

This does not show the silencer mount but may be of interest anyway.

A friend on the dreaded Facebook has just pointed out that I may be having a blonde moment as a few months ago I posted this picture on my blog:

This shows an alternative method of mounting the silencer, using a long bracket running beneath the swing-arm to the frame. This seems to be a better solution - although most of the pictures I've found seem to show the daft swing-arm mounting.
