Last I checked there was Castrol Legacy R40 available in the UK. (R30 was your 2T oil) Castor bean oil has some interesting properties that still has some relevance today.. Does Maxima, Blendzall and a couple others still have a bean blend?

Always wanted to try the TZ or one of Erv Kanemoto's 3 cylinder Kaw's just for grins. Suspect they may have been a bit quicker than the Triumphs I had opportunity to campaign. Would I get on one now? Ahhh....no.

Oh yes. John Taylor sold off the remaining inventory to Robinson Rochester Cycle. They sold the forks to dirt trackers for several years. There was a three cylinder test mule engine on a stand in the showroom for years.

Ahhh...thank you Mr. Ty, faulty memory, yes.

Could be mistaken, but wasn't the '78 a 370? The '79's being a 400? Just curious, the collective will know.

Don't recommend the Bultaco front hub. No surprise there... There is a 490 Maico with the KYB conventional setup around here, works pretty well.

Hey Davey, would you bring Roy to the phone? He could best answer this, he's seen all sides.

Interesting swingarm. Looks like the top shock mounts have been relocated also, and the "76 rear wheels have the brake hub on the left side, prompting that odd cable setup unique to them. Nice scoot. Have a pic with the side plates off? Side note: Is ... more »

What a great project! I had a TR5 MX a while ago that was fun for TT's and scramble outings of the flat track sort. The thing I wanted to change most was the foot peg position. They were too far forward and high. But I find Rickman framed bikes the same ... more »

The "tall" foams we had at CEET had extra dimension in that area. If they have a tall foam, you can shape it to your preference.

Just to be clear: are we discussing a case porosity issue (like old British bikes) or a sealing issue?
