  1. Having had them looked at by a bike dealer he says they aren't too bad and he's used forks as good as them before. Yolks seem ok as well.
  2. Yup, bent as a 9 bob note.
  3. Hi, Yes I only bought this bike at the beginning of April. I took the forks apart to clean up the internals and then discovered the broken axle clamp. I've only ridden it once, over rough ground, and this was after re-assembling them and this is when I noticed the stanchion sticking in the slider. I will pull them apart again later and see if I can see if they are bent which, as you say, is most probably the case. Thanks for the advice. Nice one.
  4. Again I tried to reassemble but with the stanchions in the clamps but not tightened to get the wheel in I have to prise the sliders apart a little and they will not compress and return. Stanchions then pulled through the top clamp. I have loosened everything off and loosely fitted the wheel and axle. As you can see in the pic the top of the triple clamp doesn't line up with the stanchion. There is a spacer on the pinch bolt side and as this bike does seem to have had a few things replaced ie the sliders I wondered if this wasn't the correct one.Anyone knew the correct size of the spacer. It's all I can think of. There also seems to be a washer on the brake side, between slider and brake plate, and this is missing on mine but surely this would make it worse!
  5. Putting the bike back together after having fork leg welded. All installed and forks are free to be pushed up and return well. When I put the wheel in, not simple as the wheel, brake plate and spacer are a tight fit, the forks are really hard to compress and when compressed do not return without pulling back on bars. What can I have done wrong?
  6. Can't ague with that.
  7. Hi, Does anyone know if I can delete pics I've uploaded to this site? I've reached my limit and can't upload any more. Cheers.
  8. Paid £700 for my 349 6 weeks ago. See pics in previous post.
  9. It's not any use to me now so I'm happy with p&p. pm me and We can sort it. I can send pics to an email adress tomorrow. I think it's the exact same model.
  10. I've just replaced mine with an OKO tawainese flatslide which is great. I realised to change all the jets and slide etc. was quite expensive and might as well get a new one. What is missing from yours as I have one which is complete but looks worn. Neil
  11. The site won't let me upload pics at the mo.
  12. I have taken my 349 fork leg to a welder who says it may or may not work as he won't be able to weld all the way around. To be on the safe side I'm on the lookout for some new legs if possible. Does anyone have any cluttering up their shed or garage? Neil
  13. Apparently the same as Bultaco so called In Motion and they were as patient and helpful as ever. One is on its way.
  14. It looks like it was pressed as the metal is thin, maybe 1mm.
  15. I am hoping to have fix my 349 fork leg welded up but on dis-assembly to do a refresh I find there is a small part that fits into the bottom of the spring. In profile it is sort of top hat shaped. One of these is intact and the other is broken. Does anyone have the slightest idea what I'm on about and if so where I can fine replacements? Cheers.
