Dreamed about one of these when I was a kid.
They looked a lot more modern back then.

Just scored a cute little DKW 125mx with a Sachs engine.
Questions
Where is the engine number?
How can you tell a "A" model engine from a "B" [ has an electronic motoplat fitted.]
How do you tell the year of manfu ?
Best place for engine parts , conrod/piston.

Tech Talk / Water
« on: July 18, 2012, 08:09:45 AM »
I am working on a later model 4/s Kawasaki and the owner has left it out in the weather with the top off.
It had an inlet insert falling to bits ??? which is something I have never seen before.
Fixed it all up and started it only to find that it had water hidden away somewhere  :'(

Anyhow what do I wash the crap out of the motor with.

Suzuki / PE Fork gaiters ?
« on: June 09, 2012, 02:17:41 PM »
Doing up a 78/79 PE 250 and am looking for fork gaiters .
Have bought 2 pair off Pyramid on Ebay but neither was anywhere near correct. [ purchase price was refunded but postage was not ]
Have ordered some parts off Ray in SA who tells me that both the 78/79 PE and the 82 DR gaiters have been replaced with  BLUE ones.
Not keen on the BLUE ones and have seen restored PE's on this and other forums with Black ones fitted.

Where did you get them ?
