  1. In my experience trials in the 70s, 80s and 90s (my era when Britain produced many world class riders) there were over 150 riders entered every weekend, full of families. Trials these days are full of solo's with the odd Father/mother and Son/daughter team. There is no soul in the sport. Some Youth riders have support, but many talented riders don't . We've been there! If you want world class trials riders we must find ways of encouraging youths to continue with the sport and not venture into mx/enduro, football etc. We now compete in mx where entries are full and competition is very hard, but you get a sense of a big family! I've not had that in trials for years! You never know it might bring some money into the sport !!!

    Montesa engine number

    Hello, thank you for your help. I brought the bike thinking it was a 349 frame with a 348 engine. I guess it is a complete 349. My wife has confirmed the engine number as being 51 H 00221 . It is a sidecar outfit! It was running spot on, and then started seriously back firing. I think we've traced the problem to being a worn keyway ignition side. I've got a couple of ideas how to fix it, but fear it will need a new crankshaft. Do you know where I can get a crankshaft from , also, anybody to fit it as i don'tI have the skills/tools to do the job. A picture of the beast. Thanks

    Montesa 348 349 help

    Hello, it's a great bike. What is a leak down test? The bike ticks over but as soon as you want more revs the bike backfires and fluffs big time. Not rideable. Tried a 24mm carb from a fantic and ran slightly better, but still not rideable . The carb on it is unrecognisable. No numbers. Cheers.
  12. Hello, I've recently purchased a 348/349 montesa cota! The frame number is 51m20333 and the engine number is 51m00221. Can anybody help identify what model and what engine it has? I want to buy the correct sized carburetor for it as it runs very poor! Cheers.
  13. If you have your belly pan fitted on the bongo , it should not be a problem. My bongo does bottom out occasionally but never caused a problem.
  14. Yes mate, we have a bongo which carries my sons big wheel beta 80 in the back, and my bike on a Dave cooper rack on the tow bar! Bomgo.. What a great bit of kit! Hope this helps.
