Wait until you see what the knee looks like now. F'ing ugly.
Merely a flesh wound...
Random pics -
And right before the kickstarter jammed into my knee after I boffed the bunnyhop -
A few more -
Until next year!
you are great.
A short info to my self.
I life in Germany and since one month I´m a proud owner of a Yamaha TY 80 mini.
The problem is, thie bike wasn´t sold in Germany. And in this case, the spare part situation is bad.
My fisrt question is, cut you helpe me to get some spares, if I need it? Currently a kickstand.
And how I pull the rear brake lever down? I´m going to restaurate this beautiful bike.
Thanks a lot
(sorry for my basic englich, but it is a good opportunity to practise)
Great sources for 80 stuff -
Can't help you on the sidestand. We rarely get them with the sidestand still installed, and we cut off the mounts before competition (they hang down below the frame rails making bash plate strikes rather interesting). Only way we found to lower the OE rear brake pedal is to bend it.
Good luck with your mini. Got pics?
Excellent! Please keep us advised with pictures. I know the TY80A was not exported to France but several have found their way there.
There is a good web site forum in France that has some TY80A tips. www.yamahaty.com
Also, TYtrials in UK has lots of parts. But the customer service is sketchy. Yambits and InMotion are nice to deal with.
One of the clues on Jeopardy a couple nights ago had the word "compleat" in it. Yeah, they spelled it that way. Wife wondered what I was chuckling at.
sorry. But now here is a picture of my TY. The others are not me.
Thanks a lot for the helpful tips. But now back to my other question. How I pull the rear brake lever down? (You see it on the last pic.) And, How I get off the bushing on the swing arm? (Look on the other pic.) I heated the metal around it but it didn't came down.
Ok, the the rear brake lever is down now.
The end of the pipe was a little bit widened and I treat it with a file.
But the bushing wouldn't come off. I pressed it, I beat it, but nothing has change.
ok, it's already done
We have a very interesting visitor here in the Brewtus Scuderia -
A Mick Whitlock framed Whitehawk 80! The craftsmanship is beautiful!!
It belongs to another inmate here, I'm doing some cleanup and a very mild resto on it. First order of business is to source the missing fuel tank and seat pan that got sent to a craftsman to be copied in alloy some time back. He promptly disappeared. We ran across a contact number for him recently, so keep your fingers crossed!
As beautiful as this machine is, I was shocked as to how friggin' HEAVY it is. I would almost swear it weighs more than a modern full size Trials bike! Shore is purty, though!
More to come....
Hmmmm.... Wonder what's going on here....
More to come!
YZ80 front end, anyone?
More to come....
Some stickers showed up tucked in the clutch hose of my bike..... I guess I need to start looking for a TY80 now!
Too bad I had Mike Komer, send all his spares out west to some guy!
I have 2 sitting in my basement...
Doing a little intake work on the TY80A. The fibre reeds I installed have a little gap while at rest. Is this acceptable and if not how do I remidy this?
