Re: Restoring Magnesium Hubs.

I would use vapour blasting as magnesium is very soft. Make sure to check on if an etch primer or some kind of chemical treatment is needed for magnesium to help the paint stick and to stop it corroding under the paint.

Re: TY350 piston kit???

Hi,
Pretty sure they are no longer available. You could try http://www.tytrials.co.uk/
I just read last night there is a company over here in States that is coating old Pistons to the spec of the cylinder.

Re: Show us a picture of your Twinshock

A couple of my twin shocks I brought in from the States. 199B Sherpa and '83 SWM Jumbo. Both great bikes to ride. The power of the Jumbo is outstanding :-)
Both bikes are unfortunately for sale.

Re: Basket Cases

This is a pic of my basket case over in the States awaiting a rebuild. It's a '83 SWM Jumbo albeit in many pieces....
I have a whole Jumbo over here in OZ to play with so no rush.

Re: TY175 Gear locating clip -

Been a while but pretty certain the clip at number 6 fits onto the gear at number 5. When the shaft is installed into case the friction clip locates into case.

Re: Tube Trials Tyres

Tube type tyres used to be hard to get. I use and can recommend IRC tyres. I believe Hell Team has them now. Great tyres, very soft tread and side wall.
