Agreed. Love that you can see the pistons and individual cells of the battery.
This is truly one of those times when you can look at something you have seen for ever and a day, but you have never seen it this way. If those images were cleaned up in photoshop, they would make a great garage poster. I am really glad you got a shot of them scanning the bike!
...another instance where a centre stand would have been helpful.
Some more AT and TA parts for sale here.
You know you are getting older when downsizing is no longer an idea but a reality. I have been in the plannng stages of moving to a smaller location and that means I can't keep all the parts that I have. Boxed up this stuff takes a lot of storage room.
Since 99% of all the Transalps I restore end up being painted the 1990 red color I have little reason to hang onto 1989 white pieces. These parts are just way too nice to be stripped and paint over, that would be a crime.
So, this is just a heads up notice, they will be listed in the flea market soon and most likely on other sites as well. I wanted to make sure everyone here had a fair notice first, since finding parts of this quality and condition will most likely be very few and very far apart once these are gone. None of this is cheap.
Guys, I also sell Transalp second hand parts which you can see here:
I'll take a whole set
Clutch replacement on an 89 TA 600 looks to be a fairly straight forward proposition without too many complications,open access and no special tools required. Am I kidding myself? Timing belt replacement info needed as well. I have two prospective purchases in mind. Not seen in person yet. One needs clutch,according to present owner,the other requires a "timing belt change"(chain??). Both bikes appear to be well cared for and well preserved based on photos. I am aware of the CDI problems as well as the output shaft/fr sprocket issues. All things being equal,which of the two,clutch or timing chain represents the greatest pain in the ass/cost??? All help appreciated.
Too bad there doesn't seem to be a left front panel. Neither of the ones I currently have are that great.
Timing Chains? If you are referring to the two cam drive chains then by far this is a much bigger job.
To say the least....Ad is in french and translates to "belt". I have to line myself up a translator and get him on the phone for more details.....thanks.
I've done the clutch. Pretty straight forward. Timeing chain would be more involved. A couple of clutch replacement posts by others with experience.
There are several ways to hold the clutch to remove/torque the nut. I used an air tool for removal. While in gear, you can placed a long rod all the way through the rear sprocket and against the swing arm on both sides, avoiding the spokes, and tighten.
you still looking for a nice nice , minty , cosmetically great , complete
Maybe we can make a smoking sweet deal on everything in the Pic
You could downsize pretty quick this way .
Thanks but I don't need the wheels at this time, I have a nice front wheel that I will be selling if I ever get it listed. Some of these pieces in the photo have already been spoken for anyway.
I will try and do all my crashing on the right for the forseeable future :eek1
This is going to make every journey really hard as you will be doing three right turns to make a left. You GPS path will look like a Spirograph!
Will those seats bolt onto my '96 TA? I sort of need another one for my riding pleasure as the current one is custom lowered for family. Hard to tell from the pics but one is def blue. Others are black correct?
No all 4 are 89 Blue. Since I have never seen a 96 TA seat I can't say for certain but I would think the seat mounting did not change. I need to get these seats listed in the flea market they do take up a lot of shelf space.
These seats range from near mint to faded and discolored. I also have just a blue seat cover that was taken off of a 89 seat but you need the entire seat and cushion right?
Maybe someone else knows if the seat attachment changed from 89-90 to 96.
