  2. M27 exhaust front pipe

    Hi BorderBultaco I might of misunderstood your post as to what inmotion are having a batch of produced ,I contacted them to put my name on the list for a m27 exhaust pipe if they were producing some and was told they have no plans to produce this pipe and don't know of anybody who does manufacture them for this model.

  3. Sherps Forks Early Models

    Hello All Working on a set of forks for my Model 10 project and have a couple. of questions which I hope all of you with more Bultaco knowledge than me can answer. On stripping down the forks I have found that the damper components have suffered from corrosion as can be seen in top photo, so does any body know if these valves are available ? if not looks like a job for my lathe and milling machine. Second question is how does the bottom aluminum fitting come off the damper rod is it threaded or press fit any advice before I start as I want to limit damage.
  4. Bultaco m27 San Antonio

    This post by twinshock answers a question I've had for a while regarding a mystery top yoke I have on a M10 project, originally thought it was a Sammy Miller item but it never quite matched the picture I never knew that Sandiford made them ! These are photos of my top yoke they look identical to me anybody have any ideas what other aftermarket items they made for Sherpas ?? This forum is great the way if you follow the regularly posts about one bike answers other questions keep up the good work.

  8. Ty175 Autolube Pump

    Hi all New owner of a TY here with a quick question. The bike has had its oil tank removed and all the connections to the pump removed also but the pump is still in place, in the box of spares which came with the bike is a new oil pump blank from TY spares so my question is can I just remove the pump and fit the blanking plate or are there drive mechanisms inside the engine that have to be removed prior to fitting the plate. Regards Cuzzy
