Hi Karl,

Its been long time since we talked.
The Velocette LE Mk3 was my recent find from Delhi 3 months ago and now being restored in Hyderabad by Mr. Rashhed Modi.
I found a lot of bikes and scooters in Delhi in Karol Bagh area. The asking price is way too high.
Some are in mint condition.
Catch you in e-mail soon
Cheers
Girish

Dear RG,

I don't know exactly about the tyres, most of them are worn out, I am planning to change all 5, need some help from BHP'ins about the right tyre.

You may notice a box below the dash board which is removed now and horn push been fixed.

Friends,

Recently I bought an Bobby GTS from Delhi, its in running condition needs a coat of paint.

One of my uncle gifted me his 1980 Rajdoot Std which I restored last month.
Spent 6K for painting and mechanical job, runs very smooth.....
The Rajdoot emblem is missing on the engine cover.....Please help me to get those

Yes Mr. Mody did tell me he he's restoring a Velocette LE here. Although I'm not sure if I saw the bike at his place.
He did get a Yamaha also from Delhi in a dismantled state.


About the bikes in karol bagh, any lambrettas among them? 'been looking for a series 1 (aka "chestlight") real bad! 'have heard bout some in delhi but none at the right price!

Dear Girish PV - the tyres on your CJ3BLHD are 6.00*16 M&S pattern tyres. Please purchase same size and same tread pattern. I will prefer MRF. Do not purchase seconds or local manufactured tyres. Please replace tubes also.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar
