  • Mr Lud, With interest in your music life, were any of these folks on your radar early on? Dave Workman, Paul Butterfield, Elvin Bishop, Jon Mark and Johnny Almond (Mark-Almond band) Early Zepplin, ZZ Top?

    Hello Lud,

    Thank you so much of the prompt reply. I am new to the autocycle world but it turns out one of the East Anglian fetishists-in-chief lives just down the road. I took the Gloria to him to get a dating certificate and he immediately asked if he could display it at their next motorbike show.

    The Gloria has been heavily previously restored and is currently not running. Before I get it running I want to gather as much info as I possibly can, so any leads or steers would be invaluable.

    As you will see form the photo, it has it's own Gloria engine unit. I am told this is very similar to the Mosquito and shares the same Dellorto carburettor.

    I abandoned the Top Hat adapter and went with the Manic Mechanic adapter. Now I feel more confident about the drive.
    Hello Ludwig! Just read a post where you talked about Adhesives vs Epoxies. Now I'm planning to mount a sprocket onto a disc brake (Screw on not splined) hub using a top hat adapter which will allow me to keep my rear disc brake. My concern is the engine and torque rotation will unscrew that screw on hub. Question - What type adhesive / epoxy should be used in this application?
    Thanks for putting my Bridgestone pic in your American Lightweight, however, you stated that it is a friction drive, but it is not friction drive, it is a chain drive. It comes from American Chain Drive Island Hopper . They do sell friction drive also, however, the Bridgestone Titan is a chain drive. You can clearly see the chain in the second pic. Thanks again and I'm glad that you like it.
    Hi Ludwig II, I don't think the Groups function supports discussions right now. There's no way to initiate one that I know of. You'll have a much better chance getting your question answered by posting a thread in the forum! There's many knowledgeable people who are not in the group. Best of luck.
