I live between Chesterfield and Matlock. Anybody else reasonably close ?
Hi mate , we should hook up next time it’s sunny. What bike have you got?
I'm on the border at Long Eaton. Domi, Commando or Inter, depending on the problems....
I am new to Nortons and recently acquired a 1955 Dominator 99. Still doing a bit of fettling but not yet had it out on the road. If you refer to the forum notes referencing the K2F magneto ATD you will see some of my comments concerning my bike.
It’s great to hear a few ppl are local , do you go to any local club meetings?
Cool , we both got 99s. I haven’t the faintest clue about Brit bikes. But I’m learning fast. Is it near getting on the road?
Hopefully next week I will give the old girl its first run out since I bought it.
Just took Norton out again, nice to be able to get some mileage in. George And Jonathan I will put my phone number on here so you can get in touch if you got any plans for a run out. Hopefully I can make it if I haven’t any family or work commitments 07904980338. Hope to hear from you soon.
Gave the 99 it’s first run yesterday since purchase and fettling . I only did a round trip of 24 miles to Chatsworth and back but it went fairly well. Not sure as to whether the clutch needs a adjusting and I need to sort out the problem of the kickstart not returning to to its top position. I am going to take the gear box cover off to investigate.
Leigh, I will give you a call when sorted.
I'm near Long Eaton too. 61 Navigator. Been commuting on it every day recently but battery has now stopped charging, it seems I may have an alternator problem...
The Notts branch meet second Tuesday of he month at the Brown Cow, in Mansfield, happy to see yu if you fancy a run across. We usually meet at around 8:00pm. Regards garry.
Thanks Garry, I thought you were out Newark way...
Matt; if you need a hand I'm around evenings.,,, but not for a couple of weeks as I'm of to the sun for a recharge of me...
Leigh; number noted will be in touch.
