Re: Shepherd 500cc motor

Re: So, is everyone doing OK ?

Hi Alastair, Hope you are well but mainly hope that you're wrong about not getting out this year ! I am hoping that we will be seeing restrictions eased by the middle of May and hopefully able to get out on the bikes sometime in June ? I am keeping everything that I have crossed that we see the peak...

Re: Brake and clutch levers

Even stranger is that when I go on the site there's only adjustable brake lever and not an adjustable span clutch lever ! Maybe you have a higher authority than me, As in the original post, I was looking for matching brake and clutch levers, There's nothing wrong with the old bikes or levers but thi...

Re: Brake and clutch levers

There's no one on this forum that can do a better job of rebuilding their engine than I can, including the ones that charge for it, Hopefully that answers whether or not I trust the engine rebuild ! As for the rest, irrelevant really ! The Classic race replicas website doesn't have any of the adjust...

Hi Channel hopper, Thanks for reply and information, I will have a look at getting one of those, I have found that the front paddock stand that I already have does work pretty well, it seems stable enough to swap wheels etc, I will take your advice and get the type you have recommended Cheers Roll o...

Paddock stand alternative needed

Can anyone help with advice as to what paddock stand can be used for the rear instead of the original Honda one, Does anyone fabricate an alternative ?

DMR Japan parts supply

Has anyone managed to buy anything from DMR Japan ? They have most of the things that owners need to keep these bikes on the road, I have tried to contact them but I suspect because of the language barrier I have not had a reply, One or two things that I fancy getting from them but in particular I l...
