Rebuild a 250 Alpina 1974 type 115

Recommended Posts

Hello

The bike, the first target is to start the engine with a clean carburetor / exhaust and of course wheels (Tires/ spokes).

I will manage to have a Vermont registration its's means lights, horn with probably a new ignition with 12 volts supply.

A long way to go 😪

Today I cleaned up the rear wheel, waiting the spoke to replace the 2 broken one.

I also got the tires at a fare price (105 USD).

Question: the gears are in left side, how are they working :

1N2345 or 54321N ?🤨

Thank you

Today job: Kickstand...

The kickstand was broken and the shaft rusted inside. I had to cut it and to do a new pivot.

I need to find a spring: Could you give me the size from the original one 😉?

Other item is the exhaust, my is badly cut 🤮

I found a cheap one in UK, to repair the old one is possible however the final cost will be the same (Welding, sand blasting, painting....).

Wait and see...

I received the exhaust and it will fit, the fork tubes are difficult to slide out of the clamps 🥴 .

Top end is schedule for this week, it will give me a good overview from the engine status 🙂.

I bought this table in Ebay: Powerstands Racing POWERPLATFORM Powerplatform Portable Work Table.

A good deal and easy to store when not in use...

Broken screw, the one to keep the rear shock in place 😪.

The others one are removed.

I will try to drill it with a "reverse" bit later, it's not a big issue..
