Description

This is my very special (and probably unique) RGS Replica:

The Frame & Engine were built by John Gleed who worked with Eddie Dow at Banbury (where the RGS was invented) for all those RGS years... and still lives in the area.

The engine has a Spitfire camshaft and strengthened valve seats for unleaded petrol

Fitted with a high output Oil Pump

Bob Newby toothed belt for the Primary clutch drive – no chaincase drips!

A 5 speed close ratio gearbox from Steve Tonkin

A Lucas Wader Competition Magneto with Auto Timing Device for Advance/Retard

High output 12v dynamo charging twin 6v Cyclone batteries in series

The front stopper is a 4 leading shoe Grimeca front hub / brake which works very well!

Double damped front forks

Re-conditioned Rev Counter & Speedo

‘straight or flat' Norton bars with Amal alloy levers

Alloy wheel rims with stainless steel spokes

Rear set footrests

Tyres are: Avon SpeedMaster Mk2; Front: 3. 25”-19” Tubed and Rear: 100x90 H19” Tubed

Plugs are NGK B8ES

Frame No. : CA7-10662

Engine No. : CA10. 9487 HHC

The frame was first registered in 1955 which means no more MoT's.

For the last few years the bike has been registered and used in the Isle of Man with the IoM registration BMN 650 which is not included in the sale.

The bike was ridden as the lead Marshal's bike in the 2011 Festival of Jurby in August 2011 – see photo.

It goes like stink…. and stops extremely well. In fact. the entire specification is simply the best. It is an enjoyable hooligan machine! That also starts well...

The reason for sale is a combination of Age (mine!) and the need to have a reduced collection of bikes that collect dust. I only ride in the dry – and that rules out over half of the days in the IoM.

The only work on the bike. other than normal maintenance. has been to ensure that the stainless nuts and bolts stay tight and the petrol tank has been internally sealed and repainted silver due to a slight discolouration along the front. welded seam. Brand new M40 oil inside.
