Title: Belna handbook and parts book
Post by: simonandjuliet on 13 February, 2018, 06:07:53 PM
I recently came across this rare book here in France and was going to do a photocopy for another LMC member, however if there is enough interest I could do it in .pdf and send copies on disk. But I would need to get someone to scan it for me as my scanner is a bit klonky

There would obviously be a small charge for disks and the time taken for someone to scan it, plus post .... but let me know if there is any interest. The more interest, the cheaper it would be for everyone

Couple of nice touches - marbled inner covers and explanation of how to order parts ,with what degree of urgency !

"Trabea  = rapid, Trinium slowly" etc

Plus ,picking up on another thread,  I can't see any parts/numbers for door locks

Perhaps a copy for the LMC library would allow full access?

Hi, I'm rather late to this thread (!) but I'm wondering if anything came of copying the book please?  I'm new to the world of Augustas & Belnas and I've just purchased a Belna (running) restoration project and I'm trying to get hold of basic model information and a few parts as it is missing a few bits and pieces. Any help or advice will be really appreciated.   I'm currently reading the 'Augusta Progress' thread with great interest! Thanks, David

Hi David
There wasn't any interest at the time so I never did it ! However, there is an excellent "Revue Technique" that is available in French. It has most of the parts diagrams plus a variety of "how to's"

I haven't translated it yet, I'm still wading through the Ardennes translation ....

I do have spare copies if of interest because I buy them when they come up for sale here in France

Not sure - but in LMC journal of September 1972 is an translation by Andrew Maclagen entitled Conseils Pratiques which I would bet was the same Belna advice. I have copied it many times over the years and keep a copy in the car!!  I do have it on my computer so could send as an attachment if anybody wants it.

Had 5 mins to look at old LMC Journals and it is indeed the translation of the RTA.

If anyone knows of the equivalent Aprilia/Ardennes translation it will save me a job - although I am half way through it already !
