Yes Greg ... that is the bash plate. Mine has no rust at all, which astounds me as it is a complete moisture trap. Your photo shows that the mounting points have survived also.

Gee wizz Greg, at the rate you're going there won't be too many TY's left in the wilds of Aussie barns before long.

You seem to have some kind of TY magnetic attraction happening.

Not sure who was at the helm, it might have been Johnny Jett?

Can someone explain why it is not BARNTIMBER BUILDERS or to AMERICANIZE it BARNLUMBER BUILDERS .......?

As Always, if Anyone is interested is Anything in Any of my photos, message me and express interest. Most of my swaps don't rate a mention, I will however share this one as I think it is interesting. So I started with a fairly original locked solid :yamaha AG 100:

Swapped it for some random Trials parts and a wheel of unknown origin:

Excellent trading Greg. Seeing that intact AG100 brings back fond memories.
So its a Bultaco front wheel that someone has gone to the trouble of balancing. Bultaco started using unplated steel spokes in 1977/78. The hub looks like 1974 to 1978 Bultaco Alpina or Frontera. The rim has a yellow Akront sticker so I'm thinking 1977 or 1978 Alpina.
Bit of a mystery with the tyre clamp. Tyre gone but the nut on the tyre clamp looks to be done up tight which is a bit weird.
The photo is of a 1975 Alpina front wheel which is the same as a 77/78 Alpina front wheel except the 1975 came with stainless spokes
