Re: Basket Cases

Hi Everyone, The only thing that I could see in the ring in was the wear limit of 410.5mm, huge for a 175. Is it possible that it's off a 250? Or more likely not even a TY? Don, the JC model has the same wheels as all of the 175s and some of the 250s. I think you have a typo with 410.5 wear limit as...

Re: how to move a KT250 when the wheels don't turn

Square Montesa Forks

Hi Everyone, Another thought on a wet Saturday. I figure there is a logical reason you didn't use the whole 242 front end. So far all I have thought of are: Maybe the 242 fork tubes were not usable. Maybe the 242 fork tubes or triples hit the 172 fuel tank. David, it is very Wet in Coffs Harbour as ...

Montesa 172 fork oil capacities

Hi Everyone, I wonder why they used 31.7mm (1 1/4") fork tubes? They may well have sourced the steel for the tubes from the UK, but why? David, I am not sure but maybe in 1976 and economical problems it was cheaper to buy imperial chrome tube/bar stock? Very nice Greg. How is the action on thos...
