    Yeah, should be a simple job for a machinist. Turn crank down, sleeve, and finish turn or grind to original size.

    My first Fantic!

    What's way too high? They stopped making that bike 35 years ago. You are not sourcing common spares for a Japanese road bike made in the last 5 years. You are looking for parts for a 35 y/o European niche bike. You are fortunate that this bike has specialist spares people still in business. Pay up, and support your local (or specialist) m/c business. Congrats on a nice bike by the way.

    You mean a higher gear. ie 2nd instead of 1st, or 3rd instead of 2nd.

    What gear are you in? If first, try 2nd or 3rd. Those are pitiful wheelies for a ty250. If i'm daft my mono will flip me on my a*** in 2nd or 3rd at a walking pace. Also check your gearing - something is amiss.

    Enfield bullet works replica gearbox required

    I thought Hitchcock's did a full range of gearbox internals, wide, close, std? All sorts of sprocket options too. They would be first on my phone call list.

    Whats gone wrong with Trials.

    I apologize if i come across as a Grammar Nazi, but ever heard of paragraphs? That made my eyes hurt which then made my head hurt.

    What have the Romans ever done for us?

    How to build a trials bike with low overheads

    Yeah, Thanks for that, highly interesting. The place looks busier than i thought it would be, especially the FreeRide assembly line, considering only two niche small market products are made there.

    Zundapp Trials.

    Yeah, that is neat, and i dunno why it has not been thought of before (inc me...).
