Burgess/SERCO Trials Cub



Here are a couple of photos of my Cub before I had a stand welded to the swing arm, changed the kickstart and a few other updates.

Beautiful, Jim.
But should it be on double yellows?

Thanks one and all, it is my favourite of all my bikes. I had to be quick on the double yellows as you say Martyn!

Motor was not oil tight, it leaked like a sieve from every possible place! It didn't breath properly which is wny it has just had a rebuild. In these photos you will see the long finned item on the side is an oil cooler, on the opposite side is an oil filter. I have had the valve guides done, the rocker shafts replaced and the diverted oilways opened up a little (boring a Cub to 67mm means you have to run the oil from the rocker box down the stud holes). It now has all new bearings and seals, a decent crankcase breather too where the distributor would have gone. I have an earlier RH casing as it doesn't have points in the side any more and it looks neater. I also have one of UPB's gear selector cover plates which should stop the oil leak from the gear change shaft.

Front wheel is 21 x 2.75 (WM1) and rear is 18 x 4.00 (WM3) which is standard for trials bikes these days. Front wheel is REH nub on 40 hole Akront rim, rear is Montesa 349 hub on 36 hole Takasago Excell rim. Carb is Dellorto 22mm. Forks are original Metal Profile MP600.

I will post new pics when I have it finished soon!




Cheers,
Jim

It must be a Bad Wednesday, Fritz (bad_friday), if you haven't heard of UPB. :(

If you point your mouse and click
http://www.upbuk.co.uk/pre65.html
this url will take you to their website, in the UK unfortunately for the Swiss.

I hope Santa brought lots of dosh because their bits are rather pricey, but seem to be very well made, desirable and good. :D
Martyn

PS - welcome to the forum, I hope you had a pleasant Christmas and are suitably refreshed for welcoming 2012.

PPS - since I replied to a posted message fom a new member, his message seems to have been deleted??? :o

Which new member would that be?

If a members post was edited or deleted since last month - it was not edited or deleted by me. Perhaps the member did so, that's the only option.

Reminder - someone has to do something pretty aggressive for me to remove a post. I WILL remove pictures that don't comply with the size requirements and I will remove posts that are not Cub or Terrier specific, contain anything but family friendly information or are not in English.

Though I own and pay for the domain and host it, this is your forum. As long as it stays on topic - Cubs and Terriers - and we all just enjoy ourselves - I don't remove posts.

Last year was awesome - 2012 is going to be even better.

Happy New Year to all....

The frame is chrome plated. UPB parts are not cheap but Bob takes great care to ensure they are right and invests a lot of money in getting them right. Not for the average road bike, these parts are for Cubs that get a hammering!

I cured the oil leak (a common problem) from my kickstart shaft by having a groove milled in the inside of the inner casing to take an O ring. Just because it's British doesn't mean it has to leak oil!

That's an excellent tip Jim regarding fitting an 'O'ring to prevent oil seepage :)

Martyn ............ think it's about time you lay off the Christmas Spirits :P

Quite possibly, Jim ;)
I'm beginning to think the same too. :o
However, my eyes are not all that bad and I was answering a request from a new Swiss member who requested what UPBUK was referring to - and as always - I was obliging. :D
I think he removed his first posting but can't imagine why. :mad:
Puzzling - but at least a new year starts on Sunday so I've got some supping practice to put in before then.
Cheers :P
