TLR200 sidecovers

Hi Folks,
I’m chasing a pair of S/hand side covers for a TLR200.
I’ve managed to get a fatter 200 seat for my TLR250 when I go for trail rides. Now I just need some TLR200 side covers to finish it off.

Cheers,
Gary

Re: Fork tube repairs

All fixed up now. I had to file down gouges in alloy legs in a few spots. I was advised to get some black Stewmac superglue from USA. Thanx Paul :wink: The stuff is great.

Re: Extra home workshop time

Hi, I was able to buy my Dad's original TY175 back after he had passed away, the tank outside was still very good. But inside it was crap. See attached pictures. I used White vinegar to clean all the rust out. I filled it to the brim, left it for two days, put a short length of dog chain in & sh...

Re: Fork tube repairs

Thanx Paul,
I never knew you could get coloured superglue.
Ash has paid for the bike & we should see it up north this weekend.

Cheers,
Gary

Re: Montesa and Bultaco

Hi Steve, I've had a couple of Cota 348's over the years. Whats the issue with your old lower legs? I'm thinking they are the square type like the 348 had. I had a big off at the 1979 Aussie C/ships in Canberra and dented the lower leg that bad it locked the fork solid :x On the first lap of the fir...
