    Be a very nice restoration, fitting a more modern air cooled two stroke 125. Locate bicycle guards and tanks from a swap meet be a great shed art as well

    So many good bicycle components for brakes etc too

    Pool ball pull start on the ct200 ag is still there and will be offered for sale this Saturday, along with two others. I can put a bid in for you if you wish.
    I still have the mighty TF185. Very reliable bike.
    It has only had about five or six engines over its life.

    one of them skippers followed me home on Saturday (the one in the ad is a possible runner, the one I have has a possibility of a part of a valve somewhere in the combustion chamber) on the weekend with its friend the TF100, might make something useful out of the pair of them.

    Mining the collective knowledge. Have an extra A100 Pressed frame and ancilliaries here but no prospect of a motor in the short term (there is a hot little 115 in the offing but it is some way down the track and I need at least one extra bike going for the Silly Buggers in April). Thoughts on stuffing one of those chineezium 125 motors in it pro tem? Not sure of the width of the hanger brackets, are they available in differing configurations? Do I have to stipulate that I need a 12 volt lighting coil? Any other concerns I need to think of?
    Anybody have experience good or bad or these engines?

    Cheers n TA
