  1. What I like is the cash refund they put in the parcel if the online p&p was too high. They put a few pound coins in with parts
  2. Worth a chat with Michael at Surrey Cycles This was his advice to me for my bike, may be different for yours: "The 1972 Montesa Cota 247 with a left hand carburetter would have used the 627/413. This would have used a 150 main jet, 40 pilot jet, 106 needle jet and 2.5 throttle valve" Pilot jet adjustable is very important for pick up etc.
  3. They often were back in the day
  4. I do agree and was joking to some extent. I've put a lot of investment and time in to the basics and look forward to the time when I crash it less and strip it down and tidy it. It's a 1972 model and I'd like to see the frame back in silver (it's been brush painted black at some stage).
  5. It's worth it, cosmetics aren't as by the time you get the mechanicals sorted you're skint
  6. Come along to a Penkridge Trials club event!
  7. Always found Inmotion excellent, but if you wish to go elsewhere then I think Mikuni UK are good to deal with.
  8. Might be worth contacting Paul at: i used them for a rebore on a Cota 247, their website says they do cranks.
  9. I was a teenager in the 1970s and rode a TL125 in local club trials, these pictures give an insight and an opportunity to look back at those times. The riding clobber alone is worth the photos being published, the main thing is seeing the bikes you'd have liked to have owned and ridden
  10. Deryk Keep on trying with interesting photos please, I don't think it's personal when people correct or flex their knowledge, just fellow anoraks enjoying a look at some great pictures. The forum itself serves as an archive and knowledge repository so it all adds value to our sport and hobby. Keep 'em coming!
  11. I have to agree with the comments about reducing stress except that the next day I start thinking about the next mod to the bike or why it wasn't running right!
  12. Also has a gearbox driven speedometer
  13. That's perfect- cheers
  14. I know, but more is better😀
  15. Hi Deryk Anything Montesa Cota from the early to mid 1970's please!
