    Rickman Zundapp

    Great! Thank you pmk. I will check that out today! To answer your question, no I have not found any answers to what I have. Thanks again.

    Thanks majesty. Mine has the high pipe, so might be the enduro version. I was hoping I could find out that information from the numbers on the headstock/neck tube plate.

    Yes, I did. Reminds me a little of my Penton Mudlark.

    Thank you, My Rickman Zundapp is the motocross version. That's why I posted my question here. But I did go over to the Classic Trials section to see what was there. Wow, great information! I posted my question regarding model ID there as well. Thanks again
  5. Looking for some help. While mine is not the Trials version, I recently purchased a Rickman Zundapp. I'm looking for a web site that might help me figure out what year and model I have. There is a plate on the headstock with readable numbers. After seeing all these beautiful photos, a Trials conversion looks interesting. The bike came with a spare motor. I have a Saracen Trials bike with a nice nickle frame. I just might see if I can work the spare Zundapp in to that. At any rate, if someone here has any identification information for my Rickman Zundapp, it would be appreciated. Thank you

    Hi folks, I just picked up a Rickman Zundapp. I would like to know if anyone can recommend a web site where I can ID the model and year from the numbers on the neck tube. Thanks
  7. Yes, my original post tells people that kentuck is the password.

    Ty250 Gearbox Oil

    I realize this is an old post, but I had the same question, and an old post recommended Silkolene Light Gear oil. I tried some and it did not work well with the clutch. The bike shifts well, but the clutch drags, as in pull in the clutch, and the bike continues on a bit. Plus, when cold, you better have it pointed in a safe direction when you put it in gear, as it's going wherever it's pointing. Breaks loose in a few seconds, but a little scary when it happens.

    Best shocks

    I put a pair of Falcon's on my Penton Mudlark and it made a big difference, compared to the (older) Betor's I had on there. But as mentioned above, I also put time and money in to the forks, to get them working right.
  11. I don't mean to change the subject, and apologize if this is in the wrong place. I recently saw an 85 Merlin 350 Gallach and was wondering if this bike deserves any recognition in this thread.
  12. I realize this is an old post, but would be interested to know how you made out with your search. Wouldn't the frame be nickle plated if it were a Saracen? I have a Saracen Trials bike and the frame and swingarm are nickle plated. The frame in the picture from westyfield7 appears to be painted. Were some frames plated and others not? Or could it be the plating was deteriorating and they painted over it? The rear frame loop looks different between the Saracen and the bike in question also.
  13. They're on ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/172374586436?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  14. Thanks folks. I have seen a post on another thread saying the forward kick motor is better than the rearward kick motor. Can someone here elaborate on that for me, since the one I'm looking at is a rearward kick.
  15. Hi folks, I have never owned or ridden a Fantic. I am looking at a 1982 Fantic 200 that's in good condition. I compete in Vintage Trials on a Penton Mudlark that I've put a lot of work in to, to make it competitive. I would like to know what you folks think of the 200 and how it compares with other brands and models such as the TY, SWM, Can Am, RL, Montesa, Bultaco, Reflex and other brands and models from the same era. I have been told the Fantic was like an MX bike turned in to a Trials bike, but would like to read your opinions of this model and how it preforms in the sections. Thanks in advance for any advice and opinions you can provide.
