Great Stuff!!

Get stuck in, forget purists. . it's not called Diff'rent Stroker for nothing Smile

Check out ebay.com for carb rubber but they proper rare as a rare rare thing.. if you can't find one then I will help sort you one out from my stash.. It will give me an excuse to pop up and meet you on one of mine Smile

who would you trust locally to rebuild the engine ?
frame goes in next week for powder coating and a few other bits.
wheels will be done by myself, want to keep the polished rims. (seems no one wants to take this job on)
tank and panels in one colour, best price i have had is 700 OUCH!

anyone know if its possible to fit an electric speedo and rev counter to the ar ?

Hi Pete,

Found a new rubber inlet for you and sent a PM regarding engine rebuild.
I've seen quite a few AR50/80s with electronic speedo and rev counters but not a 125. I would presume its the same fitment.

I'm likely to be at Cadwell on Sunday for Derby Phoenix racing, let me know if your there and I will take the rubber inlet with me.
