Bosch DA2 magneto

I am in need of a pick up or brush holder for a Bosch DA2 magneto. It’s for the 1910. If you can help or know of a source, please get in contact. Thanks.


Heart surgery

Getting ready for Epsom. Well she’s back together now. I just need to get some road time and make sure she’s back to full fitness.

9B trauma

Well I ride the 9B most of the year weather permitting. Not every week you understand but regularly. So with the Pioneer Run getting ever closer I thought a final shakedown run might be in order. Great riding weather, bright and dry, if only 2C in the sun.

All went well for the first five miles then the problems started. Some roadside attention got me home slowly but there was a real lack of power; 15 mph instead of near to 40. Well the following two weeks had me and Kevin going through the ignition and the carb but with no success and then this week, whilst trying to pedal start her, she seized solid, damn.

Motor out, cylinder off, cases apart; and the locking nut that holds the stud that carries the primary cover has come loose inside the cases. The marks on the piston explain the filings in the oil we drained (the old cast iron piston was replaced some years ago with an alloy one). All do-able but …….. now what’s the date of the Pioneer Run again?

1916 motor case wanted.

1916 J

My friend Patrik from Kristinehamn in Sweden has hit a problem on his ’16J build and is looking for a right hand engine / motor case. Preferably in good condition but able to work if some welding is required but no cracks around the bushings please. We can find repro parts but would like to stay original if possible.

And is anyone else out there doing a build on a ’16, maybe with some other spare parts? Please let me or Patrik know. Thanks.
