TY175: Strip Down
Over the last few months, the TY has been stripped to large lumps. The
engine has been put aside for later, while I concentrate on chassis,
etc. Here's a few pics of initial strip down.
Found another bent tube. The diagonal tube between shock top and foot peg is bent. The open frame tube that runs across the frame beneath the foot pegs is knocked and worn at the ends. I'll tidy it up with a file, etc.
The frame (apart from the 2 bent tubes) is in reasonable condition. There are no missing lugs, and it's not too rusty. It's been painted Hammerite silver at some stage.
