  1. Tom Sagar

    He didn't have the time, with commitments to the Enduros, Tom and his Dad did enter but pulled the entries out early as he knew he didn't have the time. Shame he goes well up there,
  2. Storm Graphix decals

    They made me some for a twinshock fantic, really good and lasting well, but not sure if they are still going as I tried contacting them last month and heard nothing.
  3. Tough Twin Shock Trials

    That's modern club trials, no one wants to lose marks! Organisers don't want people to get hurt so won't put anything in that may cause a big 5! Bikes new and old are better than they ever were, suspension and tyres alone. Trials is more social than competitive, especially in the twinshock zone
  4. 1982 Fantic 200 Trials Bike (Opinions Wanted)

    Only problem with the minarelli engine is it won't start in gear! So the 200 pro is better but not many about. As for the 240 or 300, if you can ride half decent the 200 is better, personally.
  5. Pre 65 Forks Help Trified

    Gerry has made me some for my trifield, nice quality and 2 cups to hold roller bearings. I'm using 35mm marzochi forks in Norton road holders legs. Threse are allowed in Scotland pre65
  6. Ignition

    I've now got a PVL for mine, which piston do they go off for timing?
  7. 315 Frame Polish

    Lots of wet n dry and a new set of finger tips!
  8. Bsa C15 Engine

    Are you mistaken by a 500 twin triumph piston? If so 1 of them is 250cc, used regularly in the bsa unit single. As above keep it simple, and speak to Charlie Prescott. It will save you a lot of time and money
  9. Fantic 305 Forks

    Could I have a copy please, pjsmart@live.com
  10. Front Brake On Fantic 200

    Magical springs, but go for TLR as they are longer and don't need as much spacers!
  11. Ignition

    Ok thanks Dave
  12. Ignition

    What modern ignition do people prefer for a Triumph twin 350, PVL or Electrex world?
  13. The One Honda Have Never Won

    Didn't Jarvis have a win on a 4rt?
  14. Fantic 200 Footrest Relocation

    The biggest improvement is the wider footrests that get fitted, I did move mine back and down a little bit (approx 15mm down 20mm back) but I'm 6'5 so wanted to stand more upright on it. Don't get talked into steering angle mods this not needed on the 200 minarreli, but check the webbing that connects the top tube to the down tube under the tank, it may be cracked, easy weld job if it is.
  15. Fantic 200 Spark Issue

    Sounds more like the stator behind the flywheel, you can test the readings with a simple ohm reading test meter, the blue HT coils can be good but there is a lot of cheap copy ones coming in. If the stator hasn't been rewound in the last 10 years or so it is going to need doing soon, I messed around for a while changing one thing then the other, it just disappoints when it play up. Bradford windings I have found the best for the stator and Bill Pye for a black HT coil designed for a Fantic not Vespa!
