I'm going to be in Birmingham, Alabama next month, I'm going to visit Barber for the umpteenth time, I'll try to find the Millyard bikes on display. 

I cannot wait to see the completed off-road section of the museum for off-road bikes.
And we are waiting for your report! :drif:



 :sip: Post that report (and Pictures) And stay out of trouble!  >:D
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

2021 a milestone. 60 years a biker.

He just posted a vid on running a z9 motor on the back of his van in Henrys farm....I think this vid shows more of his true nature...a naught shit of an engineer with an evil twinkle in his eye.
Some of his more edited stuff can come across a bit odd in character.

I have the same milling machine he has but my hacksaw cuts WAY more skew than his does , I think I need to get it checked
That grin when running the motor sans pipes !

The tragedy if he's still around by the time the world runs out of petrol!? He's an utter petrol head of the Grand First Order.

Imagine adjusting 4 carbs to run perfectly first start by, "I set them up with little bits of of wire and by blowing through them, listening to the hiss"

I used to roughly set mine using a watchmakers eye glass and holding the carbs against a window and look for equal light shining through the butterfies. Worked quite well.
Where are my shorts??

Indeed.  You look at him and listen to him, you'd think he is the Vicar from the local church.
