    Just a bit. Second to last, and I used a brand new end mill.
    I’m leaving it, trying to TIG that would end in more grief I fear.

    Did you buy "The Classic Motorcycle" magazine this month ? They have a Sunbeam on the cover.

    I used to buy a lot of the classic magazines, until i copped to the fact they were going around in circles. You were reading the same articles you were reading ten years earlier. Got tired of them covering the same bikes over and over, the bonnie, the goldstar, the fast expensive stuff.

    Took the words off my keyboard.

    The magazine cover is a S8 they have thinner wheels, I’m not keen on them. I need to go into to town this week, might go for a peruse:whistle::laughing:

    Biggest problem I find with magazines is take out the ads, and there is little content. I can read a mag waiting for a wig slash. So very unlikely to spend a fiver on one

    7.99 a month for a Readly subscription, then read it on a 10" tablet. Brilliant, everything from Classic Bike/Car etc. loads of US car magazines to most of the mainstream bike mags to everything else, from serious political journals to health magazines to Practical Boat Owner. It's an extraordinary deal.

    Took the engine and box out today, not as heavy as I thought it would be.
    Glad I did, it would have detonated in no time, crank full of shiny bits, front main bearing looks like its been sat in water.

    Bores dont look that bad, a tickle with a bore hone should clean them up, big ends are good, though the shells had started to pickup.

    Not sure where the metal particles are coming from are the mo.....

    Looks like this has turned into a full rebuild, not what was intended

    Might as well do the whole bike now:sheep:

    The front oil seal was brittle, luckily the mating surface on the dynamo is good. EA35C512-2050-4660-BFEF-530558B63EA0.jpeg
    Armature shows no sighs of wear, just needs a good clean, and a new set of bushes

    Large heavy flywheel to smooth things out, Clutch is massive (no pic)

    I love to Art-deco lines of the engine, esp the front reminds me of the Sphinx

    Who does the spares for sunbeams ? I used to deal with C+D autos for BSA bits and they were great.

    On a brighter note, the hole ripping out isn’t a problem as theres very little casting there (top left)
