The Bantam gets a new folding kickstart.

Spent a week generally cussing at the poor quality of aftermarket bike parts.

The icing on the cake came with the arrival of my folding kickstart - this wonderful piece of equipment came with a

note attached saying "This component is only suitable for use with an existing / used kickstart spindle"

In fact, the splined hole was smaller by a good .050"  -   -   - Nothing that the best part of

four hours with a file couldn't put right.

The morale of this tale ?     Never trust anything with the letters MCA on the packet.
