Well I had time yesterday to look for a paint supplier and found a local NAPA store with a scanner for matching paint. The guy took about 10 min to clean and polish the paint sample and we came up with a very good match. It looks like Honda used the same green in the 70s I am using a fast dry acrylic enamel the Honda paint code is G518 Plasir Green. My Tank has been painted over so I can't get a good sample so if anyone has a paint code for the tank that would help a lot.
I will try to post some photos later

Cheers

When the bike was supplied the tank would not have been painted, it would have been dull chromed with painted green lining.
This tank was also used on the scrambler and to prevent paint loss from methanol fuels a dull chrome finish was used.

You do not need a good chromer as the finish is dull chrome, not shiny chrome, an industrial type finish, not disimilar in appearance to paint as used on steel wheels on Fords in the 70/80's described as "Ford steel wheel" paint, more silver/grey in appearance than chrome-like

Hi All,
Well the bike is apart some parts blasted and painted and the larger frame parts I had to send out to get blasted should be back Friday. I am looking for the rubber bushings for the shocks it looks like all 4 are the same. I have been in contact with Villiers no stock I am also looking for the rubber stop for the swing arm can any tell me of a supplier? Yes things are going sloooow. I had to get a sand blaster and then my compressor died so a friend gave me his old one (works great). With luck I should be putting the bike back together and then start the two motors.
Cheers
PS
I have screwed up my settings and I am not getting notice of forum postings so if someone can help with that would be great.

I am putting the front forks back together with the yokes. I have but the bearings in the top and bottom slid the bottom yoke in and put the top race and nut together. I have slid the forks up then put the headlight ears on then the top yoke the headlight ear tubes have a rubber top and bottom. When I snug everything down there is a small gap at the top of the ear tube. Should there be another rubber under the top yoke? A photo is worth a 1000 words

Hi All
I am still looking for the top chain guard for the bike. Is this a standard one or was it made only for the M83 trials bike?
I am also looking for the rear chain adjuster screws 1/4" X2

I do  not recognise that item as part of the handlebar clamp ? where does it go and what does it do ? There are usually  just 4 cap screws holding the top half of the clamps the the top yoke ? Has someone fitted these spacers into the cap screw holes so a normal bolt can be used ?

Hi JH
It goes on the top half of the handle bar clamp. I think the speedo mount goes on it and the speedo mount i dont have. I can get a friend to make one.

Must be an export thing ? i have had these bikes and the speedo was on an alloy bracket mounted under one of the fork leg top nuts ? Speedo is a "D" shaped 70 MPH one with serial No SC1102/06

Would you have a photo of the mount ? I think the speedo is the same as the triumph Cub not sure I will need to look into it. Photos are a great thing

sorry cannot help with any bracket photos, yes the speedo is similar to cub , but anything( Greeves etc) with the same back wheel and tyre size will do as long as it is a 70MPH "D" shaped SMITHS CHRONOMETRIC to work with a 2 to 1 drive

Hi All
I was reading the Francis Barnett instruction book for the cruiser 80 with brief notes for the trials 83. I was looking for information on fork oil and amount page 33 of the book says oil capacity 55cc or 1 petroil filler cap full of sae 20. I have also been told to use automatic transmission fluid. Has anyone used transmission fluid? I have also sent an email to Ed on the IOW for a measurement of the top rear chain guard it looks easy enough to make.

Cheers

The front forks in the trials model are Norton Long roadholder so you might get a better idea from Norton literature , a quick look at the Norton subject seem to suggest SAE 20 150ml and up to 200ml in some cases, the 55 ml sounds about right for the cruiser 80 with barnetts own forks, but seems a little miserly for the comp roadholder forks ?
