Re: Legshield spare carrier

What model is It ? Older small frames had nuts welded inside the frame with caps over them. Obviously yours hasn't or you wouldn't be asking.

I've just changed a Mitaka Yamaha DT piston in a lined TS1 for a Wossner Yam IT175. The DT pegs went though ports, despite several people saying it would be fine after chamfering the edges, i couldn't live with it . The IT pegs now sit in the barrel and not the ports. What piston is it for Yamaha ? ...

I rebuilt a uk registered bike that hadn't been on the road since 84, it was over 40yrs old when finished. I insured it, went to post office changed the taxation class to Historic and zero rate taxed it with no MOT.
