Sometimes the truth can be cruel Joe

Its part of the Scrapper way of riding, lets say OldDog and I have had our fair share of interestng challenges over the years.

Just quietly, Im trying to get OldDog to take his newly acquired 1982 Penton KTM 250 two stroke, running mineral oil of course

That should bring a bit of joy to everyone

............series 3 ???? What hienous crime do you plan to commit here? I can't wait to see this Joe! My goal is to personally get this bloody KTM too the site, if i can even manage to point in the direction of home before stuffing its remains on a trailer i'll be a happy guy :)

That said, chaps i need some help with the mighty Penton / KTM. It has some seriously broken fins on the barrel, i've been told that it can be repaired, can someone recommend a good alloy welder (i assume) to do this repair? Needs to be done ASAP so i can get the bike ready for the ride in time. Pezz did you hear anything?

Thanks!

Ct125

hey Phil,

Hows things? Now I'm in two minds as to what to do, theres a very rundown but fully serviceable CT125 living under a tree across the road from my place, I drive past it every day, but how to get it involved and yet stay true to the Scare Chair? I've committed myself to getting "back on the horse" so to speak, so I may just have to find a way........

If work doesn't stifle my plan, I'll be there.

There might even be a TW200 convention there!

Mick's planning a very light weight chair on his CT125 so maybe you could have the best of both worlds. Nah - get the Scare Chair back on the road and get there and back this time...

I was originally going to ride a 1968 CT90 in the 2013 Scrapheap Adventure ride but once I found out, it was way out west next year, I decided I needed something with a bit more go about it.

This year I did the Scrapheap Adventure Ride on a 1989 NX650 and it did the job well. I picked up another busted arse one for $200, it had no spark and looks as rough as guts. This one is a later model and even has a disc brake backend.

Here it is with last years Scraper NX.




I dragged it into the shed and threw her up on the stand to see why she had no spark,



I replaced the CDI and Coil, still no spark. I found a loose connection on the pulse generator wires and low and behold, she all of a sudden had spark.

I jammed a tank on her and hooked up some fuel and she fired into life after several years of laying dormant.

A massive cloud of rusty dust blew out of the exhausts all over every thing in the shed and she ran like a beauty!

As you can see, she still needs a fair bit of work to tidy her up but I am pretty sure I have found next year’s Scrapper!

Nice looking project there Mick.
Thinking of doing the rally again and since the motor is pulled down already at 10,000km can I call that a Scrapper or just a heap of ####
