Back to change notice


I will start it and see if there is a need/use for this page. This page will change inbetween normal issues, I do not intend to change the "change notices" for this.
(Note: I will add the e mail adresses not as a link unless it is asked/permitted to do so. This prevents them (hopefully) from being intercepted by spammers)

When sending a mail on this subject please say "trade"  in the "subject"of the mail to make my life slightly easier.

I am not personally in the trade business and I do not have parts for sale so there is no use asking me for parts.

(NO they don't sponsor me!)


Warning to all people:

I have been approached several times by scammers claiming to have the wanted parts. Apparently these scammers hope that you will send them money first after which I expect total silence. Be very, very careful and if you decide to go along with a stranger, I think Paypal would be the proper way to do the transactions. I understand that Paypal has the ability to trace these individuals that do not deliver. Do not use any other form of payment like money transfers through "Western Union". I have a number of clues to recognise these scammers which I am willing to share, but not on the internet.

To be clear to you all, I am not responsible for your actions. As soon as anybody thinks I am to blame, this trade page will be deleted forever.

Request to people, please let me know if the list is still valid for you.

Duncan Lloyd
Vintage Motorcycle Black Rubber Insulated Wire / Cable
The Cables for Classics rubber insulated cable has been formulated using modern vulcanising techniques and materials, the cable looks and feel just like the rubber cable originally fitted to pre PVC wire 1950's and earlier machines.
The use of modern materials and manufacturing processes make the cable resistant to petrol, oil, heat and the effect of sunlight so it will not crack or perish during use like the original natural rubber wiring did.

For sale Norton 16h engine, ex WD, in good condition but stripped, appears complete except for the bottom end is just missing its bearings. The crankshaft feels to have no play, all the cams are still in place as are the pushrods, valve lifter, oil pump etc. the bore seems to be in good condition with no rust and the fins are good on the barrel. There are a couple of chipped fins on the cylinder head but the finning is still thick and pretty rust free. Comes with everything you see in the pictures. Price is £250 GBP, collection only or I will help to get it through to you through members of the WD motorcycle forum if you are in Europe.
