  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. Also has a gearbox driven speedometer
  4. That's perfect- cheers
  5. I know, but more is better😀
  6. Hi Deryk Anything Montesa Cota from the early to mid 1970's please!
  7. They were a bit rare when we got ours, got it via AVA practically brand new when it was imported. Good call on the Granvia
  8. Thanks Steve, I'm in my eleventh year of Bongo ownership well accustomed to all the benefits of owning one. Have you got one?
  9. Cheers, I've got a trailer but it's hassle and the local trials ground is really local
  10. Cool! No grief with the suspension bottoming out etc?
  11. I'm thinking of getting a Dave Cooper van rack for my bongo, it has an 85kg nose weight which is probably better than many vehicles that use racks but it has a fair bit overhang past the back axle. Has anyone used a trials rack on a bongo. It will be to carry a montesa Cota 247 initially Cheers
  12. Modern for reliability and learning to trials ride or twinshock for tinkering, restoring and some riding!
  13. Might be worth ringing Inmotion, they carry some Cota 25 parts maybe be able to advise on the bits you need?
  14. Thanks again Woody, all sorted via Surrey Cycles should be with me for the weekend in time for a club practice day at Penkridge
  15. Cheers Woody that's really helpful. I thought I had the wrong carb on mine. I'll have a word with Surrey Cycles
