Help! I seem to be stuck on 23 dec 2012 for the quiz and can't get into 2013, or is marmite dripping everywhere gumming up the works. I understand the first week hiccup from 31 dec to new years day ! Is the present item the actual one for 1st jan quiz?
confused, Tunbridge wells.

Can we have the missing quiz again please :lol:

Sorry folks not sure whats going on. The previous entry which was of a triumph 6T speedo face, and this result is now up for the few who caught it before the 1st jan. Unfortunately the larger number who correctly identified the upside down Girling top pivot have not yet appeared. Perhaps Eamonn can resolve this? I will leave spreads with or without gold coloured flecks well alone in future. (actually its a scam as the gold flakes are titanium dioxide and iron oxide so I will have to put alchemy aside and get on with bike restoration). Keep the guesses flowing

What is wrong with my guess Smiths Chronometric Speedo model S.467 instead of Triumph 6T speedo face?

Done now!

Next year, I think we'll ensure the quiz takes a break when the first day of the new year falls in the middle of the week !!

Paul I think you already had an explanation that the 6T picture was prematurely changed by the system, and your answer was afterwards and came by email. The system only allows me to agree correct entries that have been submitted via the quiz page. However the S.467 came in black face versions too and it was the Triumph link I was marking as correct.

Only three correct entries last week, the part was only fitted from 48 to 50 and I imagine lots of those bikes were later adapted by fitting the alternative part that accepted the damper rod . Names of the clever ones appear later today :oops: . I think many more should get this weeks picture as most of our bikes have one.
