Hi Everyone,

Bill, your :montesa is looking really good! It is always nice bolting on the shiny bits and seeing it all come together. Dropping the motor in must be a breeze with the removable frame pieces?

Must be getting closer to ride day? :D :D

The Barrel is the later model barrel and has the 8mm studs gotta be drilled and threaded for the 10mm studs to fit the head on its 1st size new barrel piston etc and conrod and bearings and seals through out. I am not a mechanic so a friend is doing it for me as a fill in job. Ever since I took the head off my first 175 yamaha I haven't dared do the mechanicals on a bike except timing etc I have sourced all the parts though. That Vallmoto got lots of stuff and made what they didn't have order took 9 months for my other one still one set of bits hasn't arrived but they are pretty honest company for those that wish to know . Inmotion and southwest Montesa got me bits also Jeff Nolan from Vintage Dirt Bikes no trading any more are just some of the people that have helped me get this together. Will have to make a proper list one day.

Well I got my bike back unfinished so I'm finishing it off now got more parts to get and I'll start with some pictures again. The conrod kit has been fitted with barrel and piston. The wheels are sitting in place but not fitted up got many little bits to source. Personally I don't think there was a problem with the head studs they are 8mm and the holes in the head were 9.5mm I have put cleats in but I think they are not really needed. gotta tension head and tension flywheel and fit mageneto cover and I have some fitting to do to the kick start got it chromed and now it doesn't fit together. so I am undecided wether to get the spare chromed or fit the one that is not fitting. emery paper will help it fit together.
