  1. "Benefit is lower friction (not all balls), which is needed on these old forks" good remark. I bought double-lip seals, machining the spacers will cost me more than a new set of single-lip... Thanks again for the support πŸ™‚
  2. Damned; Each fork leg has two seals; I need to order another set πŸ˜”. The main job is to disassemble and clean, small delay...
  3. Question: why 2 stops for the spring ?
  4. last news: The broken spokes in the rear wheel were replaced by my local mechanic ... The fork is on way to be rebuilt, I am fighting with the old seals πŸ˜’. Good news: I found oil in the tubes, without water. I succeed to remove the retaining screws from the bottom of each tube. πŸ€ͺ. The circlips to keep the seals in place are out of order 😌.
  5. I finally bought from https://www.inmotiontrials.com/product-category/parts/twinshock/bultaco/seats-bultaco/ Fast shipping to the US.
  6. Frame pictures for Bloomfield πŸ˜‰
  7. Sunday job πŸ˜ƒ... I have a small issue with the kickstand bought on Ebay, I will have to cut the base and weld it properly... Next job: fork seals 😬...
  8. Any misalignment holes/screws will induce a seat not in line with the frame... Someone had this "trouble" in the past ?
  9. I bought the seat : https://www.inmotiontrials.com/product-category/parts/twinshock/bultaco/seats-bultaco/ I will had some pictures soon, I need to understand why the seat is not on line with the frame and the gas tank: Frame or position from the screws under the seat ? Gas tank and seat must be in one piece before lying in the frame...

    You said: to coat the inside of a 199 Sherpa tank? Are you doing a liner to prevent leaks ?
  11. New seat arrived today πŸ˜‘. I will have to work in the alignement with the frame/ gas tank / seat....
  12. Done this morning... the frame is painted. A nice idea to customize my Alpina :
  13. Step by step; I said black but why not grey ☺️. I used a rust remover πŸ™„
  14. Yes, however the seats are done in Spain, we could probably find cheaper directly from there πŸ˜™....
