Classic Mechanics Show

You don’t get to see too much of an event when you’re anchored to a magazine stand all weekend. Even so, we discovered some Significantly Interesting Stuff at Stafford…


Mk3 COMMANDOS work really rather well with a pair of 30mm carbs, even though Norton specified (and most owners fit) 32mm Amals. A canny restorer might even claim that the 30mm arrangement improves low and mid-range torque. And keep a straight face.

THE GOING RATE for an apparently original and complete (but completely knacked and requiring a total rebuild) Honda VF400F is £275.
