Brian’s Southport Ramble

Brian’s Southport Ramble Just got back from Brian Moorcrofts run. We had a fabulous day on the quiet roads of Lancashire, I doubt if we were ever any further than twenty miles from home at any time. We were limited in numbers as a lot of our members are being sensible and not gathering in large groups and we were well spaced out from each other during the run. At no time were we In close proximity to each other. We were met by a jovial Brian who had the…

N/W Roadrunner Projects No.5

Brian Moorcroft’s Projects Here is what I have been upto since I last mailed you. The Triumph is a 1919 Mod H finished and now gone to Holland. After that I did the ZB Goldie bitsa I got a frame, gearbox and bottom end of a M33 off Graham Sharock about 5yrs ago as I had a Goldie top end for a ZB34 and also a BB32 (that’s next but one in line) so along with other bits of Bsa’s in the cupboards it was only natural to make it…

Charlie Broom’s Daytona drama’s In the mid 1960s, at 16, l first dipped my toe in the water of motorcycling with a James Cadet 150, given to me by a guy next door, then progressing (and it certainly was) to a Yamaha YL1 twinjet, 100cc, amazing little machine, then a 200cc Suzuki Invader twin, another excellent bike. It was probably around 2 years later, full licience in hand, l stood outside Horsmans motorcycle showroom, gazing in awe at this 1970 Purple Triumph Daytona, it was the begining of a love…

N/W Roadrunner Project No.3

Chris Rimmer’s unusual but beautiful project I’ve always wanted a flat-tanker but never been able to afford one. The other year I saw one of those new Black Douglas Sterling flatties and realised I couldn’t afford one of those either! This led me to the only conclusion. I had to build one myself. Luckily I had a donor bike which could only ever be improved, no matter what I did, in the form of a Chinese AJS js125e. My son Harry had moved on to cars and gave me his…

N/W Roadrunner Projects No.2

N/W Roadrunner Projects No.2 Sunbeam Owners Club North Wales run I am a member of the Marston Sunbeam club and my mate Paul Knight had arranged a lovely run in North Wales for the club. It was October and we had got over the heavy rains that had caused all the flooding over the UK and the weather was a dry pleasant day and an opportunity to get out on the bikes in a lovely part of the world with lovely riding roads along with the scenery. I persuaded my…

N/W Roadrunner Projects

  N/W Roadrunner Projects The latest train of thought is why not do a monthly newsletter on our website just to keep up to date with members projects.  I have been busy building my special from parts I’ve accumulated over the past 20+ years. It is a rigid framed BSA B31 with girder forks overbored to 400cc with hot cams, piston and flowed head. So it should be a bit of a goer, and here it is in all it’s glory. Still work in progress though. It’s a little honey.…
