  1. Top notch job you have done ! She looks great !!
  2. I know my brother and I have been kicking around the merits of an open face helmet.I came from an enduro/mx backround of riding and he is a green novice to all of it and on our last ride of the year he went over the bars on his Sherpa T and face planted pretty good.I wish that I would have gotten a pic of the other side of his face because it was covered up in a make up bath of ground in mud. I have been looking at Bell mountain bike full face helmets. Ihave watched video of some pretty nasty down hill mountain bike crashes that look worse than anything I,ve done on my trials bike,but they are also on a bicycle,not a two hundred pound twin shock.
  3. Of the bikes on the list I have a Bultaco 199a and a Ty250a and have been able to ride a KT250 and TL125 in sections. For me the TY is the easiest to ride confidently,but I have pretty limited skills and practice time.
  4. I think the early model sherpa t 325 also had a different head/squish design than the late model 325 and that the early ones were a bit more of an animal so maybe that could make a difference along with the carb and exhaust if the alpinas shared the same head. I know the later model big bore Alpina also had a different exhaust port height compared to a sherpa t but not sure about the 250. My 199a is deceivingly fast through the woods because it is smooth,but like feetup said,when a get up into 4th gear and spool it up I can run out of enough brakes pretty quick. A bigger carb would maybe give it some more bite but you might run into trouble with the sizing for the boot going to the air box.
  5. Nice work! She is looking good and glad to see another out in the woods where it should be. Cheers and best wishes for the new year!
  6. Very nice TL Jim. I have a soft spot for those because it was the first bike I got to ride a lot thanks to my good friend. Looks like you have done some pretty good mods to it. Thanks for sharing!
  7. I did my first re-spoke job on a set of wheels last year and they turned out okay. I found the best help on youtube watching 3 or 4 different how to videos.
  8. I just went and looked at my old notes and he did tell me that my 250 pioneer flywheel and stator would work on my 175 stiletto. I also looked at the microfilms on the Ossa World website and the 175 and 250 flywheels have the same part numbers.They didn,t show the stator but I,m pretty sure they would be the same as well.
  9. I,m pretty sure that it will. Try giving Alex Snoop a call and he will tell you for sure..
  10. I have a friend who is going to attempt the marriage of two other Japanese makes this winter for a custom trials bike. A Hodaka 125 Wombat frame and a XR100 motor.It will be interesting to see if it works and if it has enough power to be fun.
