The 11th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering (i.e. 2019)

Following the huge success of the 10th International Gathering we'll be at Retrofestival again. It's a massive show now and is popular with everyone.

It's held at the Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ; on the weekend of the 9th, 10th & 11th of August 2019.

Don't book with the organisers, just contact me to get your pitch saved.

Hydraulic brakes

Anything you've created that didn't come out of the factory.

Well the brakes have been tested and work well. The handbrake and over run brake remains unchanged. I had to make one change. Mini handbrake cable has springs on the ends. I found out these are to keep the handbrake leaver off and the cable tight. Without this the drums get hot and cause the brakes to lock up. I did about 15 mile test on Friday with no issues. Went down some steep hills breaking hard and no pushing was felt at all. So all in all a result. Not before time as we leave for the Isle of Man Thursday about 250 miles. If it gets us there and back we will see you all at retro fest.
