Re: Basket Cases

David, I don`t think there was a single plug 360 Pursang made. Even the El Banditos are a twin plug head and they were out before the Pursangs. I`m not sure about the very early 350 El Banditos though. The M17. Maybe a El Montadero as they had a kind of up pipe on them. The first 350 Pursangs were t...

Re: Basket Cases

It could also be a MK 9 or a MK 10 Matador head which has had a compression release installed. The MK 10s were a Spanish military machine but a few may have found their way over here. They both looked almost the same as an Alpina of that era. Maybe either a Sherpa T or an Alpina which had a compress...

Re: Basket Cases

Okay, I know you have all been waiting in suspense for some photos of an :italjet: which has its gearchange on the correct side so here it is. This is only an engine which spends its life sitting on a shelf waiting for someone to fix it up and install it into a frame. That might take a while as the ...

Re: Basket Cases

He does remember that time when he hopped on the wrong bike Chippy! He had actually paid a deposit to Frasers for the :italjet: that you ended up with. He went in there to pick it up and they had to say sorry but we will have a couple more in next week. It was only after it all happened that he foun...

Re: Show us a picture of your Twinshock or Classic Trials bike

It is rather hard trying to look at upside down photos on a PC David. Even my cat was looking at me and miming, what the hell are you doing fool!!!!! Very nice Sherpa though. Nicely done Col. :? :Bultaco: Well done Rod as well.

Re: Basket Cases

Greg. if I remember I can take a photo of an Italjet engine with the gear shaft on the correct side. Bernie also liked them on the correct side too. Sherpa, that is a great photo. All of the Bultacos from the M158,159 had a choice of which side you wanted stuff. Correct side or the wrong side!

Re: Basket Cases

It was 1982 the green ones were available in Brisbane from Frasers Motorcycles in Newstead. I remember because a good friend bought one when they came out. Chippy also bought one at the same time. I was always drooling over the brand new M199A that Frasers had in the showroom! I can`t remember if it...

Re: Basket Cases

I got that length from parking a green :italjet: next to my :Bultaco: and eyeballing how much shorter the :italjet: was compared to my :Bultaco: . The M158s and the M182s were the shortest Sherpa T I think. Their frame was different and the fork tubes were also shorter. It might not of been three in...

Re: Basket Cases

Rod, Yes they are called Domino levers now but they are the same as the Tomaselli used to be. I know the old levers fit into the new perches and visa-versa. David, the white :italjet: Piumas had aluminium axles, the rear engine mounts are tubes instead of heavy steel plates and a few other changes t...

Re: Basket Cases

Well done Greg. You would be correct in thinking that Tomaselli levers have a very good leverage ratio. The only one better is an Amal lever. I nearly have that M 49 I have been working on back together now. Just need to paint the tank and airbox cover. I`ll get some photos up very soon. The only th...
