You would be able to test the Wiring but without some research I would not know how. They are normally pretty trouble free. Normally the Wiring or regulators that play up.

Steven, can you PM me please with your (correct) email address so that I can send you the 3 pages I have on the Model 83. The address you gave me appears to be incorrect (or is it me being thick & doing something beyond the ken of a senior citizen? Embarassed
Mike.

No holes to pick,! as you say battery holder is incorrect, but you knew that anyway, everything else is as it should be, although tank would have been dull chromed with green lines rather than painted silver.
Obvious missing parts are exhaust/silencer, rear No plate bracket and toolbox, but you may have these ?

Hi John,
Yes I have the complete exhaust and I do have the tool box. I also have the lights and number plate bracket. A question about the foot pegs as we can see the foot peg sitting on the seat is round and the other one in ovel is that proper or should both be round? I will also be looking for a longer front fender the one on the bike looks like it's been cut and the tank feels like it has bondo in it I'm not sure what I will do with that yet and I have the chain guard

No rubbers on them, makes for a slippery footrest on a trials bike, the original footrests were a round footrest with a flat plate welded to the top surface which had a turn up at the end to prevent your foot slipping off, easy enough to convert the one you have, just grind a flat on the top and weld a flat plate to it ?

Hi JH
yes it will do doth engines at the same time I am getting some parts for the 2nd engine soon I have been working on the rims it looks like I will need bearings for the rear wheel the front is not bad. I will pull the engine out of the bike in the next day or two. Is it better to take the engine out with the engine mounts on or remove it from the mounts?

Post  piston 197 on Mon Apr 22, 2019 1:26 pm

Better to remove the back mounts, the others ( front and bottom) are fixed , when getting wheel bearings, they are a cheap metric bearing , get the ones with the 2RS number after the bearing number, these will have 2 rubber shields in them and will be sealed and greased ready to fit

I have been in contact with Christian in NB and he is lots of help. The weather has turned a bit colder snow in the forecast for the weekend so not much work done on the bike yet. I have a new seat from the guy I got the bike from he got it from John budgen back it 2012 but still in the box. So I will put that together and see what needs to be made to install that.
