AC/DC Thunderstruck. Good Afternoon. I managed to find my Ignition cable's so placed them on bike's with front light. Was going to take the best part's of both and build one good one. Unfortunately started waking up with blood in mouth again thought it had healed year's ago so just waiting for X-rays result. Anyway i sprayed Mudguard's white thoe look Pinkish as I should of used a white primer over the Old red primer. I hate Spraying everything looks Crap or turns to mush from bad paint mixing. Only bought Sherpa's as thought my youngest would work on bike's with his mate's but he told me to keep the Grandad bikes and go out and buy him a New Motocross bike. So explained wear he can go with a few chosen words. So mainly sat for year's buying this and that for them. Have placed Sherpa's on Gumtree with lot's of picture's if don't sell will have to work on them shouldn't be much to get them going. Take Care and Smile.
Green River CCR. Morning. I Sold the 2 Sherpa 198 and the Lad is interested in my other bikes as need to scale down so concentrate on Pusang's. Hopefully will get back my cash what bought them for since the price of Two Stroke have gone stupid. Wish i bought Honda CR500 now with the price they have gone up by. Thoe the Pursang is there if you got a very good rider on it at course. Got to empty shed this morning not looking forward to it. One time got a throat infection emptying it put me in hospital for nearly a week so wear gloves and dusk mask and shower straight after now. Got to take pictures of everything and price them but it gives me a chance to sort junk out for recycling. Pictures of Alloy tank's what will sell with 199A. One has strengthening fuel plate what was rattling around in tank managed to crab it with pinchers but stuck let New owner pull it out don't want to hurt my hand's. Will put pictures up when collected everything from house and shed and put in garden. Would put lots of pictures up unfortunately limited to 2 pictures the website could do with allowing us more data to put 12 pictures up if so choose.? Anyway Have Good day and Smile life is a Adventure
Hi thanks got some tank sticker's but not very good there just black. It was nice weather today so had a good sort out for correct parts for each bike. Would of kept them but getting tired a lot so let some youth try. Getting rid of the 199A and Pursang mark 4 and 5. Just concentrating on the mark 6 but keeping the 101 and 103 Mark 6 engine. The Wheels are all there except missing rear for mark 5 and lot other parts for it...
Supertramp The Logical Song. Morning. I forgot to mention have listed pictures of bikes on Gumtree. The bikes looking at them I do believe will take a loss as there not complete and with prices going up and parts getting expensive not many will want them. If lad doesn't take them I might try EBay as last resort and put all 3 of them up then single bikes if No interest in bulk buy. Don't sell will throw them together and use as Garden Ornament's but Mrs would hire a skip before that happened. Take Care
Boston More Than A Feeling. Morning. Deleted Gumtree as lad agreed a price to buy the 3 other Project's of mine. Noticed there was a Pursang Mark 6 350 on EBay so phoned dealer on the condition of engine. It has low compression and kick start needs to be put back into position after kick. So needs a rebore and new piston with rings plus foam and seat cover. Also needs a return spring plus won't start. It says Matching Vin's but haven't seen them should of Asked if they wear untampered with as seen so many been altered so look like there matching. Original Dealer's used to swap engine's so they wear Not matching so they didn't have to pay a Charge but forgot what it was. Anyway I placed a few high bids but will only go so far as still looking for a Bultaco Astro... Picture of Mark 6 350. Enjoy Sun.
Pink Floyd MONEY. Morning. I won the Bike got it a lot cheaper than the buy it Now price but it need`s a lot of work but have spare`s am hoping my youngest might like it as a Gift when see`s what i bought thoe doubt it. I just need to pay for it am hoping i can pay with Cash with the Money from the 2 Sherpa Projects ?
CCR Heard It Through The Grapvine. Morning. The Mark 6 has quite a bit of work to do so first thing off to Dentist to pull a bad tooth Out soon. With parts upstairs and butchering the other Mark 6 of correct part's should look OK. I asked My youngest Son"Would He Like It To Work On" Unfortunately he thinks there small bike's and Rubbish. So when finished I bet he will change his mind just doesn't want to do the work Lazy ....... Am In No rush as Now I need 2 seat Foam's and cover's plus other bits. The Engine will need stripping so can put Cylinder in Shop for Rebore and new piston ect ect. I now sold off my other 3 projects and Now Shed Empty and all Tanks gone. I believe the Trafford show should be on next year and get my seats and other stuff I hope ?. Picture of Mark 6 what i will be stripping to Frame. So much wrong on it anyway better get ready to walk to dentist that takes a hour but need the exercise. Have a Good Day as I Won't in that Chair.
Gorillaz DARE. Morning. I started taking bike to bits to keep mind of tooth as didn't get it pulled gave me Antibiotics as was a emergency appointment thoe tooth is unamendable. When took side panel off was wondering if Air Cage was inside and was. The side Panel's look to be Original so Not touching them. Am glad kept a lot of part's of the fork tree as using them to replace the parts on bike. The bolts what wear used for front mudguard are gone but still have the pair of New steering Bolt's what i will use. I need a pair of fork Boots as the one's on are disintegrating but one thing i didn't keep. The Carburetor cable has snapped of inside and believe engine will need a full over haul but have some spare's. The Mistake I made was to inquire about Vin's "Wear They Untampered With". I check both and they wear fine first thing I done when looked at bike. So if buying a bike Check Vin's I forgot as memory is not what it was after stroke. Take Care
David Bowie Ziggy Stardust Live 1972. Morning. I should get it stripped to so can Sand Frame then Paint it before Weather gets wet and Cold.. Using Metal Hammer Paint thoe haven't checked paint. Bought a bag of tin's for 10p a Tin so might be out of date used them to paint shed so didn't rust. Will have to go to Halfords see what paint there is The Handle bar's look to be Frontera and mudguard's are Preston Petty both of them. The Mudguard's are heavy and have the Logo stamped on them both thoe seem to be in good condition. Unfortunately I hate Plastic rather have Fiberglass. Took exhaust off but never really looked at it as wanted to get rear wheel off. Unfortunately the spokes are rusted and chrome is flaking off the rear wheel. I also believe the drum brake's are gone as brake is frozen. I will Finish my coffee and will have a go taking the engine out so can put it in a box to clean as underneath is clogged with crap after its clean from muck will have to find a Shop on the Wirral to get it repaired. I have 2 pack's of Pursang Gasket's which will save me some money but with New Piston and rebore and the other bits going to be hundred's then labour costs on top. My hands shake to much as should wear wrist support straps but they feel uncomfortable. When there finished will keep them as it's just a hobby thoe still want to build a Flat Track but will see if can find my Astro First. Take Care.
Led Zeppelin Kashmir. Morning. The Brake Shoe's on Rear don't seem to be that worn down will ask my lad to get spring off after spraying WD-40 on Rust if he decides to drag himself out of bed. The Front brake hub when i lifted it out of the wheel the pad fell of shoe. So needs gluing back on or replacing but they don't seem worn down either. The Bultaco nut's and bolt's are worn down but some OK. I need a bag of nut,s/Bolt's/Washer's to replace the bad one's. I had a look at exhaust and just a small weld by bracket can Not see any holes or major rust. I do need a Carburetor cable I can not find any spare's. The Amal Carburetor on bike says L 1036 on side i have a Bing Carburetor 84 underneath is 26 also another Amal L 1036 with a Amal L 2627 (401). I was going to buy a Mikuni Carb but never got round to it as read that that Mikuni is better for fuel flow. The Tank has sticker's so will need pulling off I do have some original Tank Badge's unfortunately there Red wrong model. Will have to buy sealer for tank and replace a fuel tap but most likely more wrong with it haven't really looked as just stripping bike first. Today spending time with Grandchildren haven't really seen them for a very long time so looking forward to seeing them. Have A Good Day
Lynyrd Skynyrd Sweet Home Alabama. Morning. Stripped the bulk of the bike am just at front fork's and believe there siezed. Ripped away rubber boots and removed seal and clasp is rusted solid. Poured oil around top of fork's to see if loosen's the rust as used up my WD-40 so of to shop's today. With me having the Frankenstein mark 6 I can just scavenge parts. Believe bike was sitting for decade's and just slowly rusted away. The Engine i just lifted out has got compression but gears are Not all engaging so engine will need a complete strip and reckon Clutch plates are frozen. I always think of the worse then Smile if am lucky when dealing with Old bikes. I am just missing the mark 6 125cc Engine and will have the complete set. Might be a nice day today and can sand frame down then prime it as shed is empty now feels strange as you can enter it now. Finish my coffee then start on bike going to see if brake shoe's move after soaking them in Oil yesterday. Am going to try and Not scavenge to much from other bike but am a long way from that at the moment. Picture of Preston Mudder Mudguard's might spray white if look bad after cleaning them and use on the other bike thoe will see. Smile its look's Sunny
ELO Mr Blue Sky. Morning. I would like to correct my Post I will never have the Full set of Mark 6 as never seen a Mark 102 as I don't think I will thoe hopefully will find the Mark 100 for my frame one day and exhaust for it. I sanded down rusted part's and Painted swingarm with Hammer Paint. Unfortunately wrong colour so thinking of Spraying Silver over the Hammer Silver. Had my tooth out yesterday had enough of the Pain can Not stand toothache when it's a rollercoaster of Agony. Hopefully will sand down the rest of frame when it's better weather. Take Care of Your teeth if Your Young ?

David Bowie Life On Mars. Morning. Hi accidentally posted twice as my Battery was going with Warning message every 2 seconds gave up in the End trying to delete Post as Phone went Dead. Took Tank Sticker off and like I mentioned had some tank badge's unfortunately there off a different Model. One badge had Gold missing from hand so thought could I change the Colour. So sanded red off and scratched Gold out of the Bultaco Lettering. I have Black Enamel Paint for Lettering and Silver paint also i have Silver Spray Paint unfortunately Can Not find my Yellow Paint for Hand and Lettering at Bottom. Haven't Scratched Gold from bottom yet as only started last night with my insane idea. I cleaned the rust of rear wheel so looking much better but need new Spoke's there bad and rusted but will do for now. It's Not going to be a Bling Bike I want to use it my Son's believe am to ill to ride Now as Arthritis is getting worse in leg's and feet hurt more. Today will sand down some of the frame as just doing a bit at a time as hand's hurt from Vibration from Sander. My youngest won't help me believes it's Junk and just wants to lie in bed with his girlfriend playing PS4 while listening to Crap Music. Anyway picture of tank and badge's. Need to find my Yellow Paint so will Ask the Mr's as she has a knack of finding my stuff. If Not will have to buy a small tin size of my thumb as it should work as only changing Colour's.
