    348 fork yokes

    A well know UK Bultaco parts supplier are breaking a 348 they may still have the the yokes available ..
  2. Thanks Chappo/cleanorbust for the advice I'll have a crack at doing it myself ..
  3. Bit off topic chappo but where are you getting your exhaust repacked? as I need mine doing ( are you getting exhaust and silencer done) is it expensive? cheers
  4. I'd say it will be around 83/84 ,if you look in the twin shock section there's a post on registering monts
  5. Thanks for all your recommendations ..
  6. Hi, Could any one recommend a courier to ship a set of wheels (within UK) Cheers
  7. Id be interested to hear how you get on Chappo as I'm considering doing the same on mine...
  8. Agreed not as transformative as changing the head angle, but as the standard affair is loose balls in a plastic race new tapered bearings made the steering a lot smoother on my bike. The old bearings were past their best probably but clean and well greased when I replaced them. Good mod IMHO for £30.
  9. +1 for the 26mm oko I put one on mine and it starts and runs very well... if you want it to turn better change the head stock bearings for modern roller type bearings it will transform the steering.
  10. very nice how does the Puma bike ride compared to the standard bike?
  11. That's great thanks for your advice ..
  12. Hi All, I have a later model 348 (with the gold and black stripes) does anybody know what the paint code for the tank on this model is? Just got a new tank shelter and it looks a completely different colour from the original. Thanks Guy
  13. I have been renting vans for a while as I did the same math's as section swept and couldn't make it add up (a van purchase). I used to pick up a van on a Saturday morning and drop it off on a Sunday evening, however that company doubled its prices so I went elsewhere and the other hire companies require you to drop the van off on a Monday morning which is a pain for me as I work away during the week and I'm normally away well before the hire shop opens. I've noticed a few people using citreon berlingos at trials (The cars not the van) so I've gone halfers on one of them with my old man as you can use them like a car when you dont need to transport a bike. You can take them to a tip as well (which you cant with a van where I live) . I reckon in a couple of years I'll have spent the same as hiring so I bit the bullet and bought one. As a BTW a way to decrease the cost of van hire is to buy your own excess insurance costs a lot less than the hire company.
  14. If you look under the gear shift lever you will see the drain bolt.. Cheers
