Basket Cases

Postby Greg Harding » Thu Jul 16, 2009 9:23 pm

Hi Everyone,

Having recently discovered this forum, I have decided to list my basket cases and projects. My aim is to source parts that I need and possibly help others with parts they need. Swapping parts, information and ideas is a great way of solving problems.

My list of basket cases, some of these are fairly complete and others less so.

Honda ]
TL 125 x 2
TL 125S x 1
TL 250 x 2

SUZUKI
RL 250 x 2

YAMAHA
TY 175B x 1
TY 175C x 3
TY 175JC x 2
TY 175JE x 1
TY 250A x 2
TY 250B x 2

My restoration projects are Bultaco 68-70 M 4902554, Montesa 349 5IN25526, Fantic white tank monoshock, front disc and rear drum. Plus I have bikes that I ride which are doubled up with my basket cases. Now that I look at the list, there is more than I thought!

You can contact me on dlwoods1202gmail.com Expect up to a week for reply. Alternately 0428 789 854 or 02 66543444 for a quicker response.

Silencer - no spares (I bought a replica from Spain)
Gear lever - I'll have a look
Handlebars - no spares here but replica KT250 bars (chromed steel) from Fred and Deb's KT parts in NZ look the part on M49s (and OSSAs) and are only about $60.

Greg the only gear levers I found today are to suit the bootheel clutch cover, and I think your M49002554 might have the earlier clutch cover like my M4900100. They are quite different levers. If you want, you are welcome to have a bootheel lever or I can do suitable photos of the lever on my M49 for you to make a replica.

Hi Everyone,

WELL

Judging by responses and phone calls, I get the feeling there are a few people who want to look in my bike shed! Some questions I can answer now, firstly I will sell some bits and have done already. Most cosmetic bits and easily lost or broken pieces I will keep. I ride all of my bikes on a rotation depending on the mood. Recently Sherco Queensland did a search looking for a rear brake lever for TY 250A. A lot of people replied and tried to help, but no one could! I looked in my parts and had 4 off, to me this doesn't make sense. So, I am happy to swap or sell surplus parts, prefering to swap as someone may be able to help me with something I need as well, I see this as win win. I am compiling a want list and will add to this thread when complete.

I thought that laying all my cards on the table would stimulate interest. Yes it did!
