Probably more suited to a collector to display. Runs an...

Re: Engine size for beginner?

I think a 200cc would fit the bill nicely. I don't think buying a 250/280/300 and then stuffing around with fitting a slow throttle, flywheel weight etc is the way to go. A 200 should keep you happy for years, IMO. PS: I'm 58yo and ride a '14 GG 300 with a flywheel weight and at one point a slow dom...

What a great shot, that's a pretty serious plunge for back in the day but none more capable than Jeff Gough.
I'm not sure but I think that is from a Western Districts Trial at Upper Brookfield.

Re: Montesa and Bultaco

Hey Steve, is the 248 from around 1981? If so it probably shares the same forks as the 349 (51M) from that era. This bloke Dave Snyder in the US has lots of NOS and currently has a left bottom fork leg for a 349, can't see a right but if you contact him he will search his stock, he is excellent to d...

Re: Triple clamps TY250A

If it was mine, Tig fill to make it pretty, otherwise you'll always notice it and say to yourself, "Why didn't I fix that when it was apart'.
