...as I've not got anywhere with the D1 centre stand. To start with the stop plate is at angle, due to the mounting lugs not being vertical, and now it seems I've been sold the wrong return spring. On top of that the centre stand feet need extending to stop the bike falling over! The new tubes I bought, which fit over the footpeg spindle are tight. Anything else? What a bugger's muddle I've got myself in. Time for a drop of the hard stuff I think - or a good woman. No, I've tried that and she wasn't as good as I thought... quite bad, in fact,
I've been the proud owner of a 1965 BSA Bantam D7 since 1991, affectionately known as Little Willie (Wilhelmina) and love to take her out for a ride so that others can see her.
