Heck, it looks like you could spend a couple of those cold winter nights in the garage with the angle grinder and be in business...

Throw it back. TY 175’s always sound worn out. They are to small for normal humans and they are just not cool enough when MAR’s Sherpa T’s and Montesa’s are readily available.

Agree.. I figure while shopping for a swingarm try to salvage that one.. careful work with a angle grinder and it may come out ok

Work progresses

Thanks to everyone for the info and pictures. I now have almost everything disassembled except the engine. Now the fun begins! I sandblasted the kickstand and primed it and cleaned some other hardware. BTW I did find a good swingarm from ebay.

I know OFF TOPIC

But I did look up your flicr account, some vry nice Bul's are shown there quite interesting!
Any information about your Spanish ride?

And I have an idea why there was welded a second tube to the swing arm. The wheel base
of the TY is very short as an improvement the swing arm can be extended about 25 -30mm.

Normally this is done at the end of the swing arm here it's done with the second axis
very unusual construction.

I saw the other pic's of the Yamaha too ... Well ... this bike needs some serious rebuild ...
thump's up that you will get it sorted ...

Hey- yes my first love are the Bultacos. I have a M85 Alpina 250cc (my favorite) and a 199A Sherpa T. I ride both regularly and enjoy them immensely. Lots of my riding friends also ride Bultacos- especially Alpinas. We like to explore off the beaten path, and for that they are perfect.

I did some sandblasting today on the muffler.

Lately I've been working on the forks. It will need new dust boots and seals. Surpisingly the internals looked good as there was oil in there yet. The lower fork legs must have been polished and then clear coated. After many years they looked like crap. After cleaning I wet sanded with 1000 grit and then polished them. There are some deep scratches in the aluminum but I don't plan on a show bike. This one will be ridden.

Yep it's cold here but not much snow this year. On the plus side I have found that sandblasting outside in the winter is better than the summer. You already have a coat and gloves on, and I don't sweat under the blasting hood. One thing I picked up for this project is a hand held blaster gun. It is called a Speed Blaster and it works great. It has a hopper on top of the gun- so it is a constant supply of media. It works much better than my siphon blaster. You can go a couple of minutes before it runs out but that's OK for me because that gives my compressor a chance to keep up.

Nice work, the bike is really coming along. I am not a big fan of vintage bikes, but I can appriciate a good restoration project.
