Armstrong 490 CMX1983
Production run, number produced, race team success, engine/frame numbers, manual, specification, parts supply (struggling with the GRP tank), all would all be of some help.
Thanks, Mal.

Serial No 0001
1986 Armstrong 500cc
How can I verify that a serial number on a 1986 Armstrong 500 is accurate. I'm looking at one that says Number 0001. Does this make the bike more valuable?

Armstrong MT500 EC(?)
Are there any places selling the mil/ex.mil. versions in the U.S.?
Would it be easier to import one thru Canada than directly from someone in the UK?

Armstrong MT500
Dear MT500ers,

I see a number of references where MT500 Owners change the Amal to a Mikuni carb. Is this going to make my Armstorong start easier and run better!?! I'm unable to restart the bike if the engine is warm!? I want to use her for commuting here in HongKong.

Cheers, IAN

Armstrong Motorcycles
I have recently inherited an Armstrong/Harley Davidson Mt500EC Military bike. I have learned that it was one of only 84 built for the Canadian Military. I am trying to locate any info on this bike. As well I am looking for a parts supplier in North America, preferably Canada. Also, I am trying to come up with a value for insurance purposes?? Any info or help I can get would be greatly appreciated. Thnx Glen T.
