Beta techno dougie lampkin replica

Recommended Posts

Hi, I Just bought a Beta Techno Dougie Lampkin replica. It was in terrible condition as the previous owner neglected the bike big time. I had to buy it, as what a waste of a bike. But to be honest, i think i paid a bit too much for the bike in the condition it was in (£600). On closer inspection nearly every bearing has gone on it and will all need replacing. I am on the lookout for a wokrshop manual. I have the owners manual but it doesn't really go into too much detail. I have started the restoration of the bike and i am finding it hard to source parts for it. I will try to upload some pics when i can.

Iconic bike though so good buy! Had one myself back in the day... John Lampkin should be able to help with sourcing parts. Posts some pics when you can - I'd like to reminisce!

Beta UK have a part website, where you can put in the parts numbers from the above PDF. when i sold mine (a 1999) about 4 ish years ago, getting the plastics was getting a challenge, but you'ld often find old bikes being broken on ebay for parts

There is a used trials bike place called North Wales Trials Bikes and parts, run by David Williams, have a look on FB for him, he may well have a few parts for your bike. Tends to deal with the 90's bikes. Bye, Peter B.
