Re: Basket Cases

You could of at least put a new nut on the torque arm where it bolts to the backing plate David. Or replated the old one. Looks good though! :Bultaco: :Bultaco: :Bultaco: =D> =D> =D> Howzat Graham? That nut was bothering me too. I was procrastinating about using a more modern-looking nyloc nut, whi...

Re: TY175B piston recommendations?

The Wossner is the pick for the TY175 and you should be able to get a Wossner piston kit from an Australian supplier for about $AU200. Wiseco is good quality too but made for being worked hard rather than for trials use. If you do go for a cheapy piston kit, please let me know how it went because I'...

Re: Basket Cases

Greg that Frontera you rode in the 70s would of been a M215. They were the MK11 370 Fronteras. Blue and yellow and they look really nice. They also go very nicley as well. The M213 is what your old Alpina was. So I`ll say :Bultaco: :Bultaco: :Bultaco: again! Ah yes Graham I do tend to get :Bultaco:...

Re: TL125 Aftermarket Muffler options?
