The Rupert Ratio Unit Single Manual: Volume 2: Eve&hellip by Rupert Ratio
Many moons ago, ĎRupert Ratioí of the BSA Ownersí Club produced an invaluable manual, an extremely detailed hands-on guide to maintaining, rebuilding and trouble-shooting the Unit Single engine. That extensive and informative book became the must-have accessory for all owners of late Beesa singles and is widely accepted as THE work of reference for all the models, C15, B25, B40, B44, B50 and even their very close relative, the Triumph TR25W.

Except it's not told from that perspective at all. Instead it starts out like a fairly standard schlock-horror movie, with two young lads cleaning up crime scenes (and one of them losing his lunch at the sight and smell of the gore). They go to the next scene in a remote forest location... totally isolated... uncover a secret subterranean complex underneath an old cabin... inside which lurks...
Ah. Not telling. You've got to watch it to find out.
The story then shifts from predictable… Read more
