The Abbey Inn is open for breakfast.
That'll be our last visit to the Abbey Inn. Breakfast wasn't up to much.

Hopefully the South Devon Railway will be open next month.

It was good to meet up for a chat.

Buckfastleigh railway station cafe will be open Sunday.
No it won't. Popped in there today to check.

The Abbey Inn is open for breakfasts and if we stay long enough I can have a pint.

I started it cold once.....no choke, just throttle. I do not apply choke when bump starting either.
You nailed it right there, get the carb sorted.

Re: hello from fergus

If it cruises at 85mph for too long it'll end up riding on one of these.

Then it'll cruise at 85mph all day.

I'm sure there were some numbers already stamped there.
Numbers are stamped into the frame, probably by the fella who did the brazing.

On new CCM frames the markings would look like this 歹列 为.

I've got the Dellorto 34 carb, and am wondering if the carb / airbox are too restrictive.
Possibly.

Is it a standard Armstrong? Cam, sprocket sizes makes a difference, sprocket sizes.

Welcome to the club.
