Armstrong Mono

8 posts in this topic

Decided to do an air cooled mono, after spotting a frame, tank and seat for an Armstrong at this years Telford Show. 

 

With only 80 ever made, it hasn't been the most straight forward renovation, but its getting close to completion. Everything mechanical has been done and its all running and riding.....however 2 parts have eluded the search.

 

Its missing the airbox and sump shield. I have resigned myself to the fact that both will need to be made from scratch, unless anyone out there has anything they want to sell ?

 

If there was anyone with a complete Armstrong/Can Am mono that would be kind enough to take their bash plate off and draw round it for a pattern, I would of course be eternally grateful.

Martin, have you tried an TX TXR air box for size ?

The sump shield from an Aprilia climber is a close match

Good idea Ross, I will ask around to see if anyone has one.

I have tried SWM sumpshields, where the Armstrong is different is the front mounting point which is a lot higher up than other Rotax powered bikes. So I think fabrication is the only answer. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Have a friend working on this bike and he may be able to help!

I had one of those badged as a CanAm. I put a front end off a Beta TR33 on it for the disk.

Project Armstrong mono update...everything complete and now ready for the final strip down and some new paint. The final part of the jigsaw was a new sump guard.
