About the EACC The EACC ‘s aim is to promote interest in and enthusiasm for all types of autocycles , mopeds , cyclemotors and other motorised cycles , the older the better. It also encourages the use, preservation and restoration of these types of machines. Membership is open to anyone interested in these vehicles. There are some suggestions below about how to define a moped, cyclemotor or autocycle but most definitions get a bit blurry around the edges; for example, does a moped have to have pedals? A good rule of thumb is that EACC members are interested in anything that has a ridiculously low power. Cyclemotors The cyclemotor, or motorised bicycle, dates back to the dawn of motor cycling in the last years of the 19th century, but the boom period for these machines was undoubtedly the s. The cyclemotors of this period usually consisted of a small engine under 50cc that could be attached to a normal bicycle. The positions used by different manufacturers were many and various: The final drive was often a roller rubbing on the bicycle tyre but other, more positive, transmissions were used. The EACC caters for enthusiasts of cyclemotors from all periods from the s to the present day, but it is the s that the majority of our members is interested in.

TDS Classic Off Road Motorcycles

These each refer to a particular way of connecting the windings coils with the dynamo or regulator units. They are therefore also sometimes referred to as parallel windings. There are also coils inside the Lucas regulator unit, four in total.

The Villiers 32A cc engine bears the number B which is correct, as evidenced by the records. This bike has been in the hands of its last Suffolk owner for many years. Family commitments forced a reluctant sale.

My interest in Norman motorcycles was rekindled when an article in the MZ club magazine mentioned a Norman Club. On enquiring about it I found out that the club started up in , and that it has grown steadily to a membership of over , including some members of the Norman family. My first motorcycle was a James 98cc, purchased from Precision Garage, in Gillingham, who were Velocette agents. The James was a great first bike but, living in a hilly part of Kent as I did, some of the hills were too steep for the output of the engine so something more powerful was required.

The James was part-exchanged for the Norman, with an engine twice the size and with three gears instead of two. I could now ride anywhere! Norman motorcycles were made in Ashford, Kent. The brothers Charles and Fred Norman started producing bicycles in , and the business grew rapidly. A new company called Norman Cycles was formed.

Of the Gallo-Roman city of the early Empire, some scattered remains have been found, but no public monuments, other than traces of an aqueduct. By the Late Empire the settlement was reduced in extent, and referred to as Tricassium or Tricassae, the origin of French Troyes. At the end of the ninth century, following depredations to the city by Normans , the counts of Champagne chose Troyes as their capital; it remained the capital of the Province of Champagne until the Revolution.

The Abbey of Saint-Loup developed a renowned library and scriptorium.

New Hudson Autocycle

Post by steven on Feb 9, 1: New coil, condenser, points, plug and plug lead. Its not the correct carb, this is a carb off a 98cc Villiers from the 50,s. I made an adapter up to suit until I can source the correct carb for an 8C, its not the correct exhaust either, but it will do for now. I believe if this engine was used in a motorbike, there would be a cable and a lever on the handle bars to rotate the back-plate, to advance or retard the timing as required.

You can set the ignition timing quite easily on these using the timing marks etc, but I just wanted an excuse to use my AVO!

Triporteurs were delivered in a number of basic versions, all with cc Villiers engines: the TR had a bare chassis, the TR an open box, the TR a closed box and the TR was an ice cream cart.

CIK approval is being sought for these licences. Kart licences will be issued as National and International status. Non-holders will qualify for a National Licence which will be upgraded after three successful observations by nominated club members. These may take the form of registration for minor events but for larger events a full entry form will be required complete with the required entry fee at least 7 days prior to the event.

All drivers must act in a responsible manner at all times. Gentlemanly conduct must be the rule of the day. Karting is described as a non-contact sport but with the speeds involved and the closeness of driving it is inevitable that incidents occur. If necessary, the Committee will take action in case of any infringements of this rule.

Norton model identification with engine and frame numbers

Tales my grandfather would have told me. Around him on deck, eyes slid away. Three weeks earlier Morris had shot across to Walsh Bay, Sydney, where the ship was discharging nitrate, and buttonholed the mate, offering himself in any capacity at a nominal wage. He was a housekeeper, minding stores and dispensing first aid.

In practice this is actually back dating certain regulations and we feel that members will accept them as sensible actions. 2. SPECIFIC. ‘The club’ is well aware that this will be difficult for some engines and we have tried to write the following to help. This class is basically for the Villiers 9E engine and associated models.

When Peter became a Works Weslake Rider for the Season, he passed this bike onto his younger brother Philip Phil Collins who rode it during the , and Seasons, before selling it to a man living in Fleetwood. The bike was then used for Sand Racing before being laid up for many years. I purchased the bike in and decided it was worth restoring. The restoration took approximately 6 months. I have included a couple of photographs of the bike as found.

Well pleased with the result. The Engine was purchased from Peter, who also helped me with the build ensuring authenticity, resulting in him signing the rear mudguard. It was his first GM engined bike following his departure from Godden machines. The bike was assembled by his older brother Julian Wigg.

But let me offer two less-well-known cities — Great Zimbabwe and Timbuktu. The nation of Zimbabwe takes its name from the ancient masonry city of Great Dzhimbahwe. Its bleached bones tell much about medieval African civilization. They run for almost a mile, weaving about a cliff face, and down into the valley below.

– A wide range of engines were fitted to Coventry Eagles over the years, such as JAP (JA Prestwich), Matchless, Sturmey Archer and Villiers. Clubs or a spares supplier specialising in these makes might be able to help with repairs or spare parts.

I support owners and other people interested in Coventry Eagle motorcycles. Over the years I have made contact with the owners of a range of Coventry Eagle models. It is possible that someone has a model similar or identical to yours and that they are willing to provide advice or help. Spare Parts – Spare parts specifically for Coventry Eagles are often very difficult to find. Motorcycle autojumbles, Internet auction sites and advertising in specialist motorcycle magazines the VMCC Journal and Old Bike Mart for example might yield the parts required.
