Great to see another 126 getting some fresh air! I spotted yours and equally wondered if it was anyone off here.

That's the 2nd scramble I've been to but lucked out a bit on parking this time right by the coffee! It's such a good event, could we get a few of us together for the one next march maybe? I parked with the 500 club last time

Cheers and yours! I'm trying to work out a viable way of fitting a sunroof...

Been having some fun in the snow the last couple of days, turns out it's brilliant going up and down the hills near me!

Not liking this cold weather though, I've been struggling with poor running it seems very lean, I took exhaust off last week to change thermostat and the headers were white inside!!!!!

Anyway getting worse, have changed carb gaskets in case of air leak, seem to have to run everywhere with the choke on a bit otherwise there's no power, have ordered rebuild kit for carb hoping it's got a blockage otherwise I don't know what's causing it!

So it's not an air leak and doesn't seem to be a blocked jet, I'm going to check the valve clearances and the points gap this morning and see if they have changed.
