  1. Thats some nice work on the shock mounts. 🛠️
  2. Hi, We are currently paying around £6 per gallon for Fuel. !!
  3. Back in the early 80's I used to ride a true Pre 65 Cub. No fancy Dan bits, It had a trials box, std shocks inc poor ground clearance, Heavy weight Std Triumph forks, Very poor brakes, 199cc Squre Barrel and head And an Amal Carb. Oh and it had points so no electricery ignition sytems. It was great fun it was the rider who got the best out of his bike that did well. I also rode a Rigid D1 Bantam, Not a lot to fiddle with there it was FUN. Rode in overalls and steel toed wellingtons. Does any one else think the present situation with "Pre 65 " bikes is more like my Dick is bigger than yours and I have loads of cash to make a Fiddle bike. I learned to ride on a variety of bikes when I was around 12 to 13 years old. One of the bikes was a 500T Norton now that was a monster of a bike. Again I think that back in the Day it was the rider who got the best out of the bikes that were available at the time. I agree that the bike should only be "Modified" with parts that were genuinley available in period at the Time. I know that things move on but how long before some one goes Fuel Injection and Electric Start on a Pre 65 bike ??? 🛠️

    New Mikuni.

    Thanks for the help Lorenzo. I got my 198A from Norfolk last year so probably not to far from you.

    New Mikuni.

    Hi, Just replaced the Amal Carb on my 198A that I have restored. My question is. Is the choke on the Mikuni when the lever is down or when the lever is up? Cheers
  8. Nice looking Butaco. A credit to you for the Resto. 👍
  9. The Bultaco logo on a 198A and 199A model have a raised border as in the photo. There is no reason that the case will not fit just i believe it is from an earlier model?
  10. My 198A has a different profile around the Bultaco badge.
  11. Hi, A Clutch Case that came with a box of mainly 198 engine parts I just bought.Anyone help with which model or models they are off? I think we can ignore the black paint!! Thanks in advance
  12. Hi, Have a look on the Web for Wax Jacket Refurbisment. There are a few on there
  13. Hi, Found these people on Tinter web. Wax Jackets Cleaned Unit 5a, Marcliffe Industrial Estate, Macclesfield Rd, Hazel Grove, Stockport SK7 5EG 0161 484 2002
  14. Hi, Firstly many thanks to all who gave me the helpful advice. Next, Rebuilt the carb after cleaning with Carb Cleaner and fitting 4 new jets as per Lorenzo's advice. Bike now starts, runs and ticks over. The tickover screw is fairly well nearly screwed all the way in. The needle is in the middle of the 5 grooves, If I lift the needle one groove will it give me better use of the tickover screw. 2nd Question, Where do I need to be with the Air Screw? As a starting point how far should I screw it out from it been fully screwed in? When should I know if it is correct and running sweet? Thanks in Advance.👍
  15. Hi, Thanks to all for the input. I have stripped and checked the carb again! It is jetted with the same as specified above. Given a good clean with carb cleaner and a can of compressed air. I found 2 blocked jets. The needle Jet in the bottom of the carb body and the Cold start Jet which took some finding in the bottom of the float bowl. The numbers on the Carb are "L 2627" and 401. 4 new jets on order so we will see how we get on at the weekend. Cheers.
