Re: New from Brisbane

The TY175 may be a lot easier than the TY350 to road register because your TY175 may be pre-ADR compliance era. If the numbers are 525-00xxxx then it is a 1975 model and you can declare it as such to the transport dept. Pre-ADR bikes don't need a compliance plate and ADR for motorbikes came into eff...

Re: Can someone help identify this Bultaco??

Your number means that it is a slightly newer model Sherpa T than what you were told. It is called a model 125, is 325cc and sold in 1974.
It is normal to have no dots in the engine and frame stampings.
The first one or two or three numerals that follow the letters are the model number.

Re: Yamaha TY250C Frame Colour

The wheel hubs on TY twinshocks are originally the same colour as the frame. This photo shows an original brake plate on the left end and also a hub and brake plate that I have repainted at some stage using rattle can silver grey and a clear top coat.

Re: Yamaha TY250C Frame Colour

Paint changes colour over time so even original paint won't be the same colour as it was in 1977 and it might have been repainted. Most TYs have either been repainted by now or the original paint looks pretty sad. The can I use is something like silver grey metalllic and it is silver but not too bri...

Re: 2019 NSW Twin Shock Championships

Hey Dave did you notice the pics in the advert, they're both TLR's. =D> Hey you know that I don't even look at :Honda: so of course I didn't notice. However, now you've brought my attention to it I'm wondering who did the graphics so I know who to pay out on when I venture way down there into :NSW:
