Down on his luck, Little Walt has found his way to 'The Old Sidevalve Bar'. He knows it's his last hope. If anyone can make him better Albert Crackleport can!. Follow the story of our brave hero as his worn workings are rebuilt, his rusty nuts re-polished and his missing bits searched out from the junk yards of the world.
Greetings 1925sidevalvers. Albert here. There has been a small movement on the Walter. I've spent all this weeks pocket money on a couple of lovely pieces. First flash of the cash brought through my letterbox a reprint of the original parts manual. Full of exploded diagrams showing every part one could purchase way back in 1925. Plus the cost ! Phew. Today an ebay buy - A throttle lever......Nickel plated........Delightful and just wonderful to hold.... (Sad old git ain't I ?) I'll have to source or make the rest but hey....so what.
Greetings. Are you sitting comfortably ? Then I will begin...... Here's Walt ! (Full 'Sunday name' Walter Raleigh). He's believed to be a 1925 Raleigh Model 17. Only time and much research will tell. For it is here, today, on this very page we start on a journey. Who knows what will happen along the way.......the aim is to put Walt back into running condition so he can once more phut phut the country lanes of Blighty.
