another perfectly good motorcycle ruined.......

Tuesday, 26 March 2013


sweary and chalky turned up with this little beauty tonight, a tonge engineering starter roller, it's a lovely little thing, you just connect it up to a caravan or 'leisure' battery, back up your bike onto the rollers, drop it into gear and press the foot control to start your bike, sweary had been to the test day at mallory park last week and got talking to the bloke who makes them, next thing a few drinking vouchers changed hand's and sweary and chalky are stashing an ex-demo model into their car boot! sure beat's running up and down the road trying to bump start the bloody thing on a freezing cold day and an engine full of castrol 'r' 40........


  1. That will come in bl**dy handy. A while ago I was on the edge of building one myself, because I had to bumpstart a stubborn Jawa 350, because both ignition and carb were way off...

    If you don't mind, could you take some more pix, especially under the hood, if possible... I assume, it's using a proper big starter motor, with a chain-drive ?


  2. I'm a lazy sod, I'm a lazy sod . . . XXX
