Not a Combat, just a lowly Ace 90. Since that pic was taken I have put the correct front fender on it and replaced the engine seals and bearings. If the MT you referring to is a Honda, either leave her alone or see if you can find a CR top end, carb and pipe for it (be sure to research that but I think it will fit). That'll wake her up a bit.

I just sold one of those last year.

We have one of those just sitting in a storage building. It was my dad's back in the day-bought it new in '74. It's in really bad shape though. After he died, my brother and his friends pretty much trashed it. I don't know that it would be worth trying to restore.

I'll be damned... a friend of mine just picked up a '75 model just like yours, same color even. His is missing a carb jet. PO took the carb apart and lost the jet, put it back together and forgot about it for a decade or so. My bro bought the bike for a hundred bucks.

Trying to get the down-low on what aluminum swing arms fit the XT's. Some say an older
Suzuki will fit. Better stop myself, don't want to hijack this thread into another XT/TT thread.

1978 TT500...I had one of those.

My dad always called it the "Lemon Drop Special" cause I used to break it so often when I raced it, lol.

It didnt break from poor quality, it was more from overstressing the bike by trying to ride it beyond its design perameters.

I flat tracked it on Saturday nights, then re-configured it to race motocross on the following Sunday morning...man, those were fun times.

Had one of these too...it was my dads bike, he bought it brand new.

Years later after I joined the Air Force I bought it from him and shipped it up to Alaska...rode the hell out of that torque monster too!

Love those Yamahas.

Thanks for the advice! I currently have a .50 over Honda piston and need a new jug. I never thought of looking in to CR parts for it.
Does anyone know about these bikes? I was wondering if i might be able to get away with throwing a cr250 or mt250 engine into the frame? Or am i just day dreaming?... Can't seem to find any mt250's for sale. Or 125's!

Why yes sir, it is a 1975.
Only 250 Enduro that was lighter that year was the Bultaco.
By a pound maybe.
A wolf in sheeps clothing this one is.
Only big differences between these and the Cappra (the MXer),
is the piston skirt is a tad longer, to tame it down a bit,
the lights, 1st gear is a bit lower, 5th a bit taller, and that's it.

I'm lucky to have grabbed it......................

I still don't know exactly what I am talking about, but try some of the vintage forums for cross-over parts. You may find that the CR top end fits or that there is a MT 175 barrel that will swap. After thinking about it more, I think one of the "sleeper" set-ups was the CR 250 top end on the MT 250 giving you a wide ratio
trans with a motor that can pull it.
Look here for a start. http://www.honda-elsinore.com/ Good luck.
