Hello from Dunfermline, Scotland

Recommended Posts

Hello all, thought i would introduce myself.   

I'm Alan and have just bought an early Fantic (80cc). Starts and stops but needs quite a lot doing as has been sitting in as shed for 10 plus years.  All bearings seem to be away and lots of bits seized.  Have never trailed before but used to compete in Land Rovers so hoping it's similar - albeit with more balance required!   

Looking forward to getting out for a practice sometime or spectating an event.   

Alan.

I suggest you visit next weekend's Lothian 2 Day near East Saltoun (details on the Lothian club website).

As you are obviously not in the first flush of youth, going by your Land Rover experience, I'm intrigued to know why you chose to go for such a small motor.

Hi and thanks for the response. Can't make next weekend I'm afraid but will look out for a future one.  

Re motor, first dabble off road on a bike and size didn't really bother me - also it was very cheap.  I also had a shot of one of these about 20 years ago and liked it.  Not to say I won't step up to a larger one in due course.  

Lots of jobs to do as lots of seized parts and shot bearings.   

Alan.
