Hi All, I am new to this forum as a member, I have been watching it for some time and I liked what I have seen. I am in my 75 year and have been riding motorcycles since I was 14 years old, I have several bikes at the moment. A Yamaha XT 500, TT 500, XT600, DT360, DT250, Triumph TR5T, Triumph Trident T150T and a Hinckley Bonneville, over the years I have owned a Vincent 500, Goldstar 350, an Old Sumbeam and several other makes.

Welcome from NZ. My Boss from the local Yamaha shop in the "70's--60's/70's & 80's is up there somewhere in the UK & think he's visiting the Triumph factory as part of the trip to do with the 'film reunion' of the making of the Great Escape Movie which he played a part in. Plus an organised trip to museums etc--& he's 85--with a minder. You're BSA 350 Goldy had me dreaming of what i could never afford & was stuck with cast iron B31 & 33 in scrambles--running on Alky of course lol. Great fleet & variations of bikes you have there & Have Had.

The Goldy-- yes it's all in technique to start--any older single-- as i'm sure you know. My B33 took no prisoners if you didn't kick it right, & hard, with the Lucas SR2 mags, i'm sure that's what it was & we all started buying them for scrambles, 100% reliable & water didn't phase them but fixed advance. Think the ones we got were for industrial engines & bought them from the local Lucas agent. spinning magnet & fixed coil as opposed to the old Lucas Mag Dyno mag with spinning coil I slip ring. Anyway, have day--or morning where you are.

I once had a Triumph 650 I was building with the "racing fixed timing ac system" I was asking a guy on timing it & he said with "good" timing he'd start his with truck tire spinning in the pits! I purchased a "battery type" w/advance rotor while building motor!
