Tanks a lot….

Manx Norton Tank

Well at last some progress on the Manx, the swinging arm is in place. We had decided to use a 16mm spindle so the spacer bushes were bored and reamed to 16.2 and the frame gusset drilled to suit. The spacers were machined to ensure the swinging arm is central in the frame. The forks, yokes, and front wheel were collected by a friend and we have to pick them up from Taunton tomorrow- pictures to follow in a few days. As you can see we have also acquired a petrol tank. Doesn’t seem like much has happened but we still have to try and earn a crust and not be to distracted by our projects, a little easier said than done!
