    CB100N motor

    I'll look around in France for twinshock 125 Honda that's registered to start with , need to be insured and registering a special might be a pain. The 100n wasn't imported here either, it was a 125 market. I don't mind a bit of work if necessary. Thanks

    CB100N motor

    Just looking at various site's, items on eBay.com listed as 13mm, predatormotorsports say 15mm and another 14mm. Unfortunately my motor is in UK and I'm in France, so no way to verify. Would a rod kit be out of the question?

    CB100N motor

    I came across a clean CB100N motor and bought it. I was wondering if this motor can be enlarged; sharing the same stroke as a 125. Otherwise are there any useful mods I can do with this motor? It came without it's carb or induction spacer, traf.
  4. Well, I started something there. Yes I live in France and my group is quite liberated. After 35 yrs of Mazak bodied carb's I thought let's try this. Looks okay I think. Thanks all.
  5. In my case I'm attached to a "Seventies" era club so it's not an issue. I had a quote for Mk1 Concentric+ manifold, £200+ . VM22 from my parts box is okay. Thanks
  6. I wonder if anyone has ever fitted a Mikuni VM22 to a Villiers 7E spec motor. I was prompted when my 3rd and last Villiers S24 Concentric showed hairline cracks. I had a VM22 handy and a hose to couple it up. I've long held that the 24mm size was fit for road work, but maybe overchoked for a trialer. The carb came from a GP100 so I'm awaiting suitable jets and filter. Anyway I'd like to hear any experienced views, thanks.

    240 climber

    I've just bought a 1990 240 climber. The previous owner had a "throttle stuck open" moment before a tumble. He can't recall hooking the cable,is this a fault with a secondhand model? I'd also like to obtain a manual and spares in UK,is there a good dealer for these older bikes? Thanks

    Hi, normally I'm in department 16, Charente. A group called Seventies trial16 exists,a friendly bunch. There's also a testing ground at Angouleme run by MCA, motorcyclists club angoulaises. You may be right about exports,but French have quite a few machines and Spain is just down the road. One thing I did note was price of things like Fantic piston prices,are such as Montesa's the same? Anyway its going to be more than a Villiers dykes piston at £12. Thanks

    It sounds like it's a bike I should get. Back in the day Wakelin Ward sold them,but I was racing a Greeves Silverstone. Are spares still available? Thanks

    Returning to this site after long time,but same bike lingers in same barn, Norman B4/Villiers 8e moded somewhat. What I need is a running proper trials bike. My nostalgic favourites appear to be Montesa Cota 247, or as I never got to buy one in the day,a Fantic 200,though I have not ridden one of these. My local French club keep asking when will i roll . I've seen latter for not a lot of money, any opinions? Thanks.

    Villiers 197

    Well that is a refreshing change as the advert says,food for thought and tinkering in workshop. So a dormant thing under the blanket gets a bit of use. First job is top off and measure to see how far off I am. Mentioned was "top-hat " combustion chamber, well I had one of those on my Greeves Silverstone RES back in the seventies and it seemed to have edge over standard ,detonation with Champion was cured by affordable NGK's compared to a Lodge....Happy days...exchange Alpha crank 16pounds, pistons,9 pounds....you needed them missing gears gave you a 3-piece gudgeon pin! Keep you posted,traf.
