Hi all, bit of a lurker here but need a bit of help if anyone has some advice. My 81 Sprint has an incredibly stiff gear change coming in and out of 2nd and 4th gears. No other problems, no noises no vibrations. Can anyone shed some light on what it might be?

First action would be to look underneath the lever gaiter to see if there's any obvious interference with movement, then at the rod that goes to the gear change shaft, same thing. If still not apparent the underside of the gearbox has a plate that can be removed to see the gears and the selector forks. When I had to put another gearbox in my 33 I had to adjust the selector forks positions to get it just right.
If you decide to do the last then have a spare gasket available or be careful with the one fitted.

There's a cylindrical rubber bush in the linkage, not obvious as it is inside a tubular metal part. If it has perished you may not get full movement . I've just discovered a spare whilst tidying up and that reminded me.
