For Sale / New gold Sun alloy rear rim. RM, PE, DR etc
« on: Yesterday at 07:15:04 PM »
For sale I have a barnd new gold rear Sun rim. 36 hole 18 x 2.15. It was drilled by Buchanans in USA probably 10 years ago. Never been laced to hub. Been sitting in box.

it will fit all 76-80 RM 250, 370, 400.  All 77-82 PE250 & 400. 1980 DR400, 81-84 DR & SP500 and 80-81 RS250

Basically it will fit any rear hub that has equal size diameter flanges and the rim is centered between the left and right flanges.

It probably fits other Honda, Yamaha and Kawasaki hubs if they meet same conditions above but i have not had time to research through my Sun catalogues yet.

Can supply photos.

$200 AUD or will consider swap for TS185/250 parts

Honda / XL250 Exhaust identification
« on: March 04, 2018, 10:28:58 AM »
Does anyone here know what brand this exhaust is? It's brand new and for a 72 sideport port model. Pipe is for left  side. Holes in mesh are about 4-5mm dia. I don't know much about aftermarket 4t pipes. From looking at 2T pipes J&R used this type of mesh with small holes and Bassanis were 9 or 10mm. I was told this could be Bassani as the seller said it was with a heap of other NOS Bassani pipes but this type of mesh makes me think its not a Bsssani but i am still guessing. maybe the baffle is a good ID point?

Has anyone had trouble buying from them before? I ordered some bits 2 weeks ago and they said they will contact about shipping costs but i never heard anything and i have tried emailing them. I provided card details when i ordered but as far as i know they don't charge until shipping is added.

I require just ONE 38mm chrome inner tube . Preferably from 77-78 YZ or 79-81 RM or even 82-84 PE175 would do.
Does not matter if theres rust in the upper section, kinda prefer something a little junky, but as long as its not bent.

Tech Talk / Exhaust pipe manufacturer ID
« on: October 07, 2017, 07:03:51 PM »
Does anyone recognise these design features which are the only identifiers I have for possible identification.
- made in USA
- most likely in west coast CA region
- made in late 70's

Simple washer for pipe spring. I am yet to see another pipe with this type of loop and i have heaps of photos of pipes saved, but a lot of photos i have looked at don't really show this area in close enough detail either.

inside mount bracket type

It has these remains of some dobs of weld that once held on a heat shield of some sort. There are 3 each end. I am only 50/50 on the single middle one, i think that could be just  a high spot where paint has rubbed off it. The gaps between the 3 spots of weld are about 20mm

This is a M6 nut shown for size reference. If they were a lot closer together i would of said maybe a 1/4 nut was there and that it possibly could have been a Torque pipe as they had welded on nuts. Maybe the spots of weld held on a larger flat washer with a nut in the center of that?

Does not really seem like enough weld spots to hold on mesh to me.

Wanted / ADB magazine article late 70's
« on: October 01, 2017, 11:50:57 PM »
I am looking an ADB magazine article/s from the late 70’s where they made a budget enduro bike from a TS185 and then Geoff Eldridge raced it against a horse and it was on TV or something. Not sure if I got the details exactly right, I only have vague info. Anyway I am just after the issues that it is in. Probably 76-78 era.
