After a small bike
« on: June 09, 2014, 07:48:57 PM »
Something for my kids to learn on and me to admire! Small 70s trail bike eg 100/125cc DT TS KE XL. Anyone selling a nice one?

I could not make it to Gloucester so I asked Paul for some photos
I thought the Gloucester Astro was Grant Rs
It would look better with Flattrack tyres instead of speedway tyres,
I will have some used ones that he can have
So pm me

It was bought from Victoria and is an original Aussie Astro not a US import as such.It is a M195 but has a M136 engine fitted.The matching engine came with the bike and needs an overhaul.The 136 engine runs, but is in poor condition and needs an overhaul as well.We have all the parts,just the time to do it is missing.Hopefully it will be a runner for next year.
The 195(250) has the long stroke engine(64mm) so it is possible to bolt a 360 cylinder on to it.
