T80 Prop Stand

Post  steve9e on Fri 15 Jun - 4:31

Hi Guys, :d\\'-\\':

the learning curve is rapidly rising !

has anyone seen a prop stand for a T80?

I noticed that the footrest on the left side has the mountings for a prop stand ( Haynes book mentions it as an "option" but there is no drawing.

before I re invent the wheel ( or copy my Honda ) I would appreciate either a photo or sketch of one if they exsist in the UK.

Cheers Very Happy

T80 Prop Stand

hi JW :d\\'-\\':

I only spotted the bracket attachment on my bike yesterday afternoon, thanks for the tip off.
Even if I do not get it it looks a fairly easy make? Shocked

Cheers Very Happy

Well easy to make if you have welding and machining facilities, the main leg though is a 'T' shaped steel pressing which would be hard to replicate.
At £18 you cant really make one for that and its is an original on eBay. The only thing you would need to make is the stepped bolt (10mm dia with 8mm thread). The spring is just a standard tension spring of suitable length, best you use a stainless steel one as they rust.

T80 Prop Stand

Post  steve9e on Sat 16 Jun - 3:08

Hi JW :d\\'-\\':

I like making things and have all the equipment and material, but as you said the new one would save a bit of time,but I have plenty of that (at the moment) It would be nice addition to my original bike. A typical Japanese construction made out of the cut off bin materials
we shall see - 5 watchers apparently.

cheers Very Happy

If you do have to make one it might be worth making a small batch and sell the others as owners are often looking for these.

T80 Prop Stand

Post  steve9e on Sat 16 Jun - 20:01

Hi JW :d\\'-\\':

It's a thought, we shall see. I am pretty certain that I could make one simpler and look better, but as you say having a genuine spare would be nice.

Cheers Very Happy

Did you manage to buy it Steve, went for £24 in the end. Thats getting ott now there is another one for £32!! Looks like the possibility of making a killing is bringing them out of the woodwork (or dealers old stock). Get that production line going.

T80 Prop Stand

Post  steve9e on Sun 17 Jun - 7:27

hi JW :d\\'-\\':

Yes I did, so it saved me a job. No doubt I will have to make the fixing bolt and I think I have a new spring somewhere anyway, so jobs a good un !
There also seems to be a flood of CDI units also appearing ?
I had planned to get out tomorrow weather depending although I will(not?) be overwhelmed with Father's Day goodies.
Usually I am riding in the Beamish Reliability Run (155 miles all on Dales roads ?) on my 1958 Excelsior Universal, but decided to give it a miss this year to ease my old bones. I took part in the first event in 1972 on a Scott, where does time go?

cheers Very Happy

Here is a drawing of the fixing bolt, it screws into one side of stand, tighten it till there is minimum clearance and fit a lock nut

This is the T50/80 side stand:

Also the stand for HONDA C100,GRAND  is the same :

steve9e  If you need the fixing bolt and the spring  i can  search for a spare i think i have.

T80 Prop Stand

Post  steve9e on Mon 18 Jun - 6:24

Hi JW :d\\'-\\':

Enjoyed the chat Very Happy

prop stand bolt - I have a nice piece of S/S hex bar which will do nicely, thanks anyway

S/A bolt came free OK but no lube except at the thread, so it is now embalmed in grease etc and torque up correctly.

Fitted additional earth to HV coil ground, I will probably change the ignition switch anyway so I  have 2 keys.
Bike going well did 25 mile shakedown on my "Test Track" Planning 150 mile run next weekend doing Day One of the Coast to Coast,, which is about the equivalent of the 2 Day event in one day! that should be a good test.

I did not push it during my test run just to give it a chance to loosen up since it has not been taxed since 1992 !!!!
40 - 43 a nice cruising speed, but it would go faster but I mean to finish.Good on hills in top gear & not a great deal of difference between my 6E powered Excelsior and is more comfortable ( and brakes? ) I am impressed with the handling.
new gears very smooth.
It all looks good at the moment

cheers Laughing

T80 Ignition units

Post  steve9e on Wed 20 Jun - 6:25

Hi JW :d\\'-\\':

Spoke too soon the ignition is playing up again? CDi suspected no sparks - no run out this week end until I have bottomed this problem - CDI resistance tests rubbish on bench !
W Shocked Who said they never break down?
The CDI all wiring checks out  through plug etc
Ht coil  tests OK and sparks when charged externally
Pulser is switching OK
Charge coil spot on, plenty of volts
Wiring and connectors seem OK
Ign switch OK
new plug(s)
All earths sound and starts incredibly well when in running order.

Only one thing left ?      -  Could it be ghosts - without data all you can do is fingers crossed and renew parts - that is progress ? Hopefully my 2nd S/H CDI unit works, in the post at moment

I  rode it 30 miles the other day - sweet as a nut, left it tucked up at night and no spark in the morning ?

Where is my Honda? I am going for Sherlock Holmes
We will get there
