Re: SD bronze piston conrod

I've never seen a war time or a post war Seagull with a bronze conrod, though the majority of pre-war Marstons had bronze rods, to say if was one of those I would need the little end & big end diameters & the exact center to center distance in mm.

Thanks for that Thcl, I think 31 out of 81, paints a very good picture & makes Michael's time even more impressive!

Re: Seagull & Anzani race around Brownsea island Poole

That's a class A

Seagull & Anzani race around Brownsea island Poole

Re: Surprising Seagull SD discovery

Re: Modifications - a good idea or not?
