That was the estimate Bonhams had in mind for this piece of classic bike history when it came up for auction at the firm’s October sale at Stafford. A very respectable 57bhp was claimed with the maximum speed touching mph. But Hobbs was unsatisfied and took the bike to Ted “Barry” Baragwanath pictured left. Baragwanath, a well-known and well-respected Brooklands sidecar racer and tuner who also ran a motor repair business in North London and was noted for wearing a winged collar with his riding gear coaxed the horsepower up to around 65 from This was achieved by increasing the compression ratio to 8. Moby was now able to hit mph in top gear 3rd , and reach mph in second. Despite all this, Hobbs didn’t fare as well as he’d hoped at Brooklands, but he did better at the Gatwick Speed Trials in both the solo and the sidecar class. By , Moby Dick was sold and passed through the hands of Alfred J Cain and Tom Eccles, the latter of whom kept the bike for 40 years.

You can purchase the appearance and performance of a Gold Star for a lot less than the asking price of the genuine article. Many people have created their own replicas over the years, so if you’re buying on a budget and are not too fussed about originality then a hotted-up B31 or 33 could be ideal. Ask to see the supporting paperwork and talk to the specialist who did the work if looking at the latter.

BMW frame and engine numbers on Phil Hawksleys website. Plus loads of other BMW info. If the bike is known to the DVLA, then just apply for a duplicate registration document. Failing that, it is possible to recover the original registration number under the V scheme, details of which can be had from the VMCC Library. Briefly you would need some piece of paperwork to support an application to retain the original number for your machine.
Something like the old Log Book or an old tax disc would be ideal. Another option is a certified copy of the original record from the original registering authority.
BSA WM20 Freshly Restored

History[ edit ] Motorcross first evolved in the U. Off-road bikes from that era differed little from those used on the street. The intense competition over rugged terrain led to technical improvements in motorcycles. Rigid frames gave way to suspensions by the early s, and swinging fork rear suspension appeared by the early s, several years before manufacturers incorporated it in the majority of production street bikes. Companies such as Husqvarna from Sweden, CZ from the former Czechoslovakia and Greeves from England became popular due to their lightness and agility.
By the s, advances in two-stroke engine technology meant that the heavier, four-stroke machines were relegated to niche competitions. They dominated the event, placing their lightweight two-strokes into the top six finishing positions.

P5 for the Mk. III International These rifles were probably designed in the very late s and built and tested in to , since the production model was announced early in after considerable modification, as related on this page. This particular rifle was subsequently used by the late John Hall – a well known International small-bore shot and longstanding staff member of the Eley ammunition company.
The combination was instrumental in his winning the Lord Roberts Trophy in and selection for the team which went to the Tokyo Olympic games in

That’s dangerous talk because the guys who own and love their Birmingham Small Arms M-Series military mounts take their rides pretty seriously and can be a sensitive bunch. And here at Sump we know that because we’ve got a fabled BSA WM20 in the garage, and every once in a while we chip in some idle comment on Henk Joore’s near legendary BSA WM20 forum and more or less talk the talk and walk the walk, etc.
So we know what goes down. But what with one bike and another, it doesn’t get anywhere near the kind of exercise it used to get. This example was built in Fact is, the Triumph TRW is a compelling proposition for anyone interested in British sidevalves, not least British military sidevalves. A decade ago, they were barely on the radar.
Most military bike riders are a friendly bunch who are invariably intrigued by anything beyond the norm. And the TRW was definitely not the norm in the early part of this century, or the latter part of the century before that.

These excellent sights were still offered as original equipment on some rifles sold long after the sight’s introduction. Many more were sold as after-market items, indeed, there is still a world-wide market for these sights, generated by the owners of the many models of classic BSA and other similar rifles still serving so well in historic competition.
A word of warning to any classic rifle shooter wishing to purchase one of these fine and useful sights for fitment to his or her prized rifle. The height of the sight may be critical to its suitability for any particular rifle’ iron-work or butt-stock configuration. Do research your specific needs carefully before paying a not inconsiderable sum for a sight that proves too short for practicable use.
Whilst initially frustrating, such an event has the ‘silver lining’ that the purchase of another classic rifle to which the sight is suited will correct the problem most satisfactorily! Being rather diminutive in overall size and aperture size, they were soon superseded.

Argentine tango Tango canyengue is a rhythmic style of tango that originated in the early s and is still popular today. It is one of the original roots styles of tango and contains all fundamental elements of traditional Tango from the River Plate region Uruguay and Argentina. In tango canyengue the dancers share one axis, dance in a closed embrace, and with the legs relaxed and slightly bent.
Tango canyengue uses body dissociation for the leading, walking with firm ground contact, and a permanent combination of on- and off-beat rhythm.
Some would argue that the Triumph TRW is the coolest looking British military bike ever built. We wouldn’t want to get between the warring parties over that one, but the TRW certainly possesses that classic Triumph “cool”.
Classic Super Bikes Fleet, Hampshire. Restored and rebuilt by an experienced marque specialist in Sweden and still requiring some running in, it’s excellent in all regards except for the left silencer which has been damaged by a battery acid leak. Still awaiting workshop appraisal here, after which a video will be added, but we are reliably assured it runs faultlessly and the restoration work looks to be of a high standard.
Matching numbers machine with all the Swedish documents in order so if it sells in the UK you’ll be the first owner and we’ll help with the process so it’ll be trouble-free. Recently fettled to perfection and it shows: These are rare models of course and this example is even rarer in that it not only looks good but is a joy to ride. This remarkably original late model S has a lovely history to go with it’s excellent condition inside and out.

A stochastic DNA walker that traverses a microparticle surface. Nat Nanotechnol, 11 2 , pp. These engineered machines typically move along precisely defined one- and two-dimensional tracks. DNA hybridization reactions, the nanoscale movements of the walker can lead to the generation of a single-stranded product and the subsequent immobilization of fluorescent labels on the microparticle surface.
This suggests that the system could be of use in analytical and diagnostic applications, similar to how strand exchange reactions in solution have been used for transducing and quantifying signals from isothermal molecular amplification assays. The walking behaviour is robust and the walker can take more than 30 continuous steps.
The traversal of an unprogrammed, inhomogeneous surface is also due entirely to autonomous decisions made by the walker, behaviour analogous to amorphous chemical reaction network computations, which have been shown to lead to pattern formation. One implementation of this strategy has been to denature the aptamer with an antisense oligonucleotide, wait for dissociation of the antisense oligonucleotide, and stabilize the folded, signaling conformer with a ligand.
However, there is a large kinetic barrier associated with releasing the oligonucleotide from the aptamer to again obtain an active, binding conformation. If the length of the antisense oligonucleotide is decreased to make dissociation from the aptamer more favorable, higher background signals are observed. To improve the general methodology for developing aptasensors, we have developed a novel and robust strategy for aptasensor design in which an oligonucleotide kinetically competes with the ligand for binding rather than having to be released from a stable duplex.
