Back to change notice


I will start it and see if there is a need/use for this page. This page will change inbetween normal issues, I do not intend to change the "change notices" for this.
(Note: I will add the e mail adresses not as a link unless it is asked/permitted to do so. This prevents them (hopefully) from being intercepted by spammers)

When sending a mail on this subject please say "trade"  in the "subject"of the mail to make my life slightly easier.

I am not personally in the trade business and I do not have parts for sale so there is no use asking me for parts.

(NO they don't sponsor me!)


Warning to all people:

I have been approached several times by scammers claiming to have the wanted parts. Apparently these scammers hope that you will send them money first after which I expect total silence. Be very, very careful and if you decide to go along with a stranger, I think Paypal would be the proper way to do the transactions. I understand that Paypal has the ability to trace these individuals that do not deliver. Do not use any other form of payment like money transfers through "Western Union". I have a number of clues to recognise these scammers which I am willing to share, but not on the internet.

It appears people are trying to sell "their" motorcycle through my trade page while not being the actual owner of what is offered.
To prevent further abuse, I will not add any complete bike unless people can show official paperwork of ownership to me.

To be clear to you all, I am not responsible for your actions. As soon as anybody thinks I am to blame, this trade page will be deleted forever.

Request to people, please let me know if the list is still valid for you.

Duncan Lloyd
Vintage Motorcycle Black Rubber Insulated Wire / Cable
The Cables for Classics rubber insulated cable has been formulated using modern vulcanising techniques and materials, the cable looks and feel just like the rubber cable originally fitted to pre PVC wire 1950's and earlier machines.
The use of modern materials and manufacturing processes make the cable resistant to petrol, oil, heat and the effect of sunlight so it will not crack or perish during use like the original natural rubber wiring did.

For sale Norton 16h engine, ex WD, in good condition but stripped, appears complete except for the bottom end is just missing its bearings. The crankshaft feels to have no play, all the cams are still in place as are the pushrods, valve lifter, oil pump etc. the bore seems to be in good condition with no rust and the fins are good on the barrel. There are a couple of chipped fins on the cylinder head but the finning is still thick and pretty rust free. Comes with everything you see in the pictures. Price is 250 GBP, collection only or I will help to get it through to you through members of the WD motorcycle forum if you are in Europe.

27th May 2019, Possibly a scam, the seller can contact me if he is not and explain why he did cut off the Canadian contact he had. If no reaction in a couple of weeks, I will remove this item.

SELLING RESTORATION /SPARES 1954 Norton Manx. 500cc Project restoration.
Spent a lot on the bike, but was never reassembled due to ill health. The engine (now converted to 500cc) and gearbox rebuilt. Frame is stove enamelled to high standard and is very good. Tank has been professionally resprayed to very good standard.
A very rare opportunity to rebuild a matching number 500cc Manx which doesn't need too much spending to complete. click to enlarge
