  1. Thanks for the input. Had a look at the old one and there are no serial numbers on it. Completely blank. Im going to visit a couple of well established local bearing suppliers near me with the old one and see if I get any joy. Im getting my engineering mate to swap the collar. He has done it before and has a press, so hopefully it will go ok. 👍
  2. I want to replace the ouput bearing shaft on my s1 Eclat. Ive taken off the old one and was going to order a replacement through SJ. However looking at it, the one Ive taken off looks a lot stronger than Steve's. (More ball bearings). Is the original not available anymore? Does anyone know a supplier or will I have to go with the replacement from Steve? Cheers.
  3. No probs. Best of luck with the search.
  4. Did you see the 2 pods from my Eclat on eBay last week? They didnt sell and Im happy to let you have the nearside one if you want it.
  5. Thanks @Techyd. That's good to know. I didn't realise Esso regular unleaded doesn't contain any Ethanol. Will be filling up at Esso now. I am currently using Shell V power. Expensive but nothing is too good for my old 'babies'!
  6. Glad you got it going. I DO have a spare, So if there are any probs down the line let me know.
  7. Im pretty sure Ive got a spare thats the same as the one in the photo. I can look it out if you want?? Let me know. Cheers.
  8. Just had another thought @Matt-watts had a batch of crash pads made some time ago and I think i read that he was thinking about having another batch made. You could ask him and see.
  9. Don't know if your have thought of this but I went onto last year and managed to pick up my S1 steering wheel from the States. Even with the cost plus the postage fees to the UK it was still cheaper than £500.00. Just a thought.
  10. Hi James, I think you will have to be prepared to shell out. One just went on eBay this weekend for £510.00! Item no. 193977736471 Best of luck with the search.
  11. I have these three on my hallway wall. Company called Golden Era. Loads of different car cards. Good descriptions on the rear. Very reasonable prices. All available.
  12. I am selling my 1980 Eclat as a restoration project for £1500.00 Its a shame to break her, especially seeing as there are so few left. I have put an ad in the classified section so check it out!
  13. ***My Favourite Biker Joke Of The Day**** A little girl was leaning into a lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, all under the eyes of her screaming parents: A biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumps back, letting go of the girl, and the biker brings the girl to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A BBC reporter, Laura Kuenssberg, had watched the whole event. Laura, addressing the
