    1978 cota 348 paint code

    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

    Hired a van

    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.

    Montesa 348 vs Bultaco

    I always liked the look of the 348's and I got a later model one last year having never rode one before, its surprisingly well made for a bike of that age easy to work on as well.. I wouldn't worry too much about it snapping in half if you find a decent one I doubt you will loose money on it. I'm not bothered about it being competitive in twin shock trials I just bought it for the fun factor which it has in spades.

    315 fuel tank/mudguard bolt

    Hi All, Got the bike out of the van and noticed the bolt that holds the rear mudguard and base of the fuel tank is missing. I believe the part is not available does any know what size of bolt it is so I can source a replacement. Thanks all
