  1. Ok I'm looking to replace the old amal concentric mk1 carb on the Ossa mar 350 and I've come across the Nibbi carb. Are they any good? Anybody used one?
  2. Sorted now. I tried Steve but he doesnt have any that he doesnt need unfortunately.
  3. Thank you I've looked but they only have the polished ones and they're more than I can afford. Thanks again for your suggestion it's most appreciated. 👍
  4. Does anyone have an alloy tank for an Ossa mar they would sell me please
  5. In my opinion the best looking Bultaco ever made
  6. I always set out with the intention of winning, usually goes out the window after a couple of sections, because if i didnt then whats the point i might as well save the money and go "practicing". I enjoy the element of competition and "practicing" bores me to tears after 10 mins because it doesnt matter if you cock it up so i find i learn or develop very little a bit like if i enter an event with no personal incentive of winning. To progress i need to "dig deep" sometimes to "pull it back" or "send it". Just me i suppose but thats the way it is with me. I suppose its about whatever makes you happy and gives you enjoyment. If it was just about being out riding your bike we would all be on worn out uncompetitive bikes with bald tyres and bits held on with bailing wire and tie wraps lol.
  7. I'd just fit a new case. Fit and forget.
  8. Try Stuart Brown.. on 0033 640399019  he is a trialing brit in France with a barn full of old trials bikes . There is a yamaha twinshock that is being canabalised for bits and sure its still got a kickstart on. He is also on face book under Paul Stuart,

    Hope this helps

  9. Thanks for that feet up fun. I've got two of those in my collection. I don't know if it was a local thing because I remember when Pete Oakley rode his TY 250 A at a Sutton Falcons trial at Teversal he let me have a go on it and I couldn't believe what a game changer it was. I remember the sticker was on it then. Just wish I could remember the names of the other two riders in the team ? Someone else must remember it's only 45 years ago ?
  10. Does anyone remember in the early 70's when the TY 250 A model came out Mick Andrews organised a TY 250 for Pete Oakley and a couple of other riders. They sported some stickers with the riders names, the Yamaha tuning fork logo and Mick Andrews trials team. Ideally I'd like an image as I want one to complete a period restoration. Can anyone help please?
  11. Hi has anyone successfully fitted a kickstart off of any other model to a TY 250 twinshock ? Seem like hens teeth or ridiculously overpriced. Just wondering.
  12. Currently have a Bantam which i built from scratch, Beta rev 3 which i have nearly finished restoring, TY 250 twinshock work in progress and TY 250 mono also work in progress. Basically i have these because i've accumulated them over 15 years bit by bit and they are all i can afford. Since moving to Wales and discovering trials are much less popular and few and far between i keep myself amused by restoring the "projects" i've got. Couldnt afford much else and i would'nt be able to ride it anyway.
  13. Lots are available on e bay
