I could not find a thread dedicated to the Montesa 314R, so I started one. I acquired a 314 years ago and messed around with it some, but parked it on the back porch and all but forgot about it until Lineaway decided to revive a Fantic he had thrown away 9 years ago then decided to assemble it and ride it this weekend. Lineaway's Fantic...uh...build (?) thread here - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=923801 I last messed with the 314 3 years ago now, here - http://advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=14686496&postcount=1 Damn you anyway, Bob. Got the old 314 off of the back porch and decided to clean it up - Maybe it has sat a while - I'm pretty sure this is an Approved Spark Arrestor - Cleaned up, and ready to....go?? Miss Bitters' 315R and my 4RT look on - The bike had sustained a lot of damage in it's previous life. Note the broken rear sub-frame - And the destroyed speedo. This thing amassed 1700 miles?? Hardly. Well wait....It is currently going 20 MPH.... I remember the original muffler being in not that bad a shape. I think.... Maybe the aftermarket spark arrestor is not that bad?? Yeesh! Maybe another muffler should be considered. Cut, weld, cut, weld..... Or maybe another alternative? NMTrailBoss' 315R is currently residing in my garage, and has a really neat Turbine Core II muffler attached to it (a trademark of NMTA 315R's when Lewisport USA used to be located here ) - Better not. After all, NMTB is a friend. Anyhoo, moved on to replacing the handlebars from the original bent Domino's to a set of less-bent, taller Tomaselli's - Maybe a new set of funky new grips I found in my box-O'-vintage trials bits? - Maybe not..... :huh I went on to pour a bit of pre-mix oil down the cylinder. The last time this ran, it had a bit of a top-end knock and I was not too sure of the fuel that it was running. Drained out the old fuel and force-lubed the piston. I know this will not help the rod/crank, but it makes me feel better about starting it back up with a fresh charge of AvGas/Motul premix - Moving on, what's this in the swingarm bolt? Dirt? Grit? No.... Bug bits!!! :eek1 At the end of the day, it was looking pretty good. A couple of beauty shots with NMTB's 1st Gen. 315 - I still like this, cast into the frame rail - And these stickers on the swingarm. No idea what it is. HMPlant? Honda Montesa? Anyone?? More to come. Maybe. Well, there you have it. Got a 314? Post it up here!!!
