Spring for TS/CW oil plunger
« on: 05 Mar 2019 at 23:36 »
A typical restoration mystery ! One day the spring was there, a week later disappeared. Would anyone have the correct spring or recommend a modern equivalent?
On another subject, most Aussies would now be aware that due to a dispute with the ATO, the Classic Car Museum at Gosford has closed and auctioning its contents. A few bikes are listed including a 1924 CW, looking nice with its glistening chrome and belt drive etc etc . As they say, buyer beware !

The price is correct and donít forget the 7 1/2 % buyers fee on top of the bid price. Essentially an older restoration belt drive TS with some incorrect/missing parts. Definitely a case of auction fever, compounded a bit later when an Aston Martin DB5 (admittedly in lovely condition) was knocked down for $1.55 M plus fee.
Whole thing shown on You Tube I believe as my grandson was watching it live at home.
