    Lets revive this thread. Just picked up a 1974 TS185 that a crackhead had customized by painting EVERYTHING with black spray paint.

    Good stuff, but be careful and use it in a WELL ventilated area.

    I recently picked up an 80 TS185. My lady and I rode it all over the logging roads of SW MT. I'm going to teach her to ride on it. Starts right up and is easy to ride. Needs a few things but pretty solid. Loud though. I'm pretty sure I need a new gasket at the head. Smoky as all get out when you first start it up. Had to switch out bars as the PO must have dropped it or crashed. Had this aluminum pair laying around. kinda cafe style narrow. I poached the non factory turn signals for another bike so, no longer street legal with out using hand signals. They didn't blink anyway, even with a new battery. 20200820_123224.jpg

    The 250 parts are different from the 185. Good to know though, thanks
