IT 175

Recommended Posts

Well with all of the trials bikes prepped and sorted,  the latest project to hit the workshop for covid19 project is a 1977 IT 175!

Couple of questions ...

1 - both mudguards are good condition but very faded - what’s the best bet to paint ? And does anyone know the colour code ?

2 - long shot but does anyone have an airbox cover and filter cage ? (Or know where I could get them)

3 - piston and barrel look ok but seems low compression ? Was going to put a set of rings in as it’s not blowing past  the rings - I can get nos rings - but will 40+ year old rings be brittle ? Better bet some pattern ones ? 
mid new pattern ones might as well get piston kit ?

I think that’s about it for now!
