That's more like it. It's easier than Photobucket was.

If they were you wouldn't have seen the pictures.

If I click on one of those, I'm asked to sign up to postimage.org. And no pictures to see.

If I click on my photo's, I get the same as you do.I suppose that's because I posted them without signing in.If I click on the lovely AJS I get that photo again.I'm guessing that is from an opened account.

Dave P., When I posted the AJS pic, I ignored the sign in prompt and just proceeded from there, so it wasn't from an opened account. Seems I was lucky!

There is no way Postimage can know that a visitor from this forum has signed in there.
You can see the pictures posted, that's all they supply.

I expect they will start charging (or else pollute your screen with endless ads).

Dave P - A left field question here if I may. I see you have the cranked rear crash bars with the integral pillion footrests. How does your pillion find having their legs sitting over the top of them?

Thanks

Hi Phil.No, I'm not thinking of selling her.That's an old photo' taken before I started using and abusing the poor old bus.In fact, that pic' was taken the day I got her.She'll still clean up though.

Cyclobutch.I removed the rear crash bars almost immediately, so my pillion passenger has never experienced that arrangement.Sorry

That seems to be the case, so fair enough. Clicking on it will get you into postimage IF you have an account, and can log in there. Big smile

Having opened an account with Post Image and posted this image,I tried clicking on it to see if it would appear on the hosting site,as does the AJS picture.It doesn't,so I've no idea why that should be.Still,it'a a useful vehicle for posting pictures and as yet is still free.

Doh - OK. Thanks.

Mine came fitted with the single seat and 'straight' rear crashbars, but also a dual seat and 'cranked' crash bars as your pics show. I'd like to run her two up occasionally but can't see how a pillion could get comfortable. I could go without bars altogether for such a foray but have some rather splendid in period glass fibre boxes on the back I can imagine having a nasty accident with.

Hi Dave, just wanted to say your bike looks beautiful in that colour. Another left field question though, (I have an identical bike in the same colour). Would you know what colour it is so I can look for some touch-up paint?
How do you find the front brake, I'm about to change the linings to "green grippers" and have them and the drum machined to suit. Have you done something similar?
Thanks and happy riding, Alan

Click the link for the colour codes.These are from the Dutch club website.
Green Brake linings, Is this the old Ferodo AM4 material? If so I didn't know it was still available.Apparently, it contains asbestos
I've done nothing special to my front brake apart from setting it up very carefully.As 1960's TLS brakes go it is very good and I'm quite satisfied with it.It works better with a heavy duty cable, not the skinny thing that is generally sold for it.And the cable which incorporates a brake light switch is best avoided,It makes the action very spongey.Ferodo AM4 linings were really intended for racing and don't work well unless they are up to temperature, or so I understand.
Take your time setting up the brake.Get the lever angles right and you will have a brake which is very good given its vintage.

Read this article, if you haven't already,it's very instructive.The last photo showing the linkage is what you're after.This gives maximum leverage when the brake is applied.
Good luck.

Hi Dave, thanks very much for the information and advice. Have tried to post a picture of my bike showing the brake linkage etc but with no success. I've already set the linkage up as per Greg Bender and I'm informed the green gripper linings are the nearest to the old Ferodo green but non asbestos and woven with non ferrous content and definitely not hard. I'm also going to look for the thicker cables without the front brake light switch....and it looks like cherry red's the colour. All the best,Alan

Hi Alanw. I got a little confused, when you mentioned the colour of the bike and stated that yours is identical.I thought you were reffering to the white V7 with TLS brake.Now I see you were referring to the red 850 with 4ls front brake.Oh well, the article covered both types.
I'll be interested to know how you get on with the Green Gripper linings.They are a new one on me.Please give us a report when appropriate.

Dave, have you found a supplier for an off-the-shelf thicker front brake cable? I am thinking about getting one made by Venhill but a cheaper alternative would be good.

That back wheel looks at a funny angle......

And surely that's not a 2012 registration?

[QUOTE=iansoady] That back wheel looks at a funny angle....
I thought that when i looked at the photo. Hope the frame isnt twisted and its just an optical illusion.

WARNING: I tried to post a photo on the Google Guzzi forum using postimage in exactly the same way as on here, but the image wouldn't display. One of the members there opened the image by deleting the bits of the address outside the img brackets (stay with me) and now he is being inundated with dating spam. It's all beyond my brain capacity but beware, i guess.

No off the shelf option that I know of.I've used these people for the last thirty odd years.. http://www.motorcyclewebsite.com/j-j-cables-ltd" rel="nofollow - http://www.motorcyclewebsite.com/j-j-cables-ltd

I've even worked there on occasion.If you phone and speak to Dave he'll sort you out.He'll need your old cable as a pattern and to re-use the adjuster.Most of their work is Imperial so he won't have the adjuster himself hence the need to re-use yours.
