Title: New(old) bikes in the house. Edit: And a lottery win 😊
Post by: german on October 18, 2020, 11:29:24 AM
Hi guys,
well. Things sometimes do not pop out as wanted.  ::) Instead of reducing my stable I just swapped bikes with 2 close friends. :D
With one friend I swapped my Cagiva-Suzuki DR400 SoS race bike against his Hejira PE250. Both are happy. Bike has a to disc valve induction modified PE250 Suzuki engine in it.

And with another friend I swapped my race RGV250 into a bike I owned before. It is a Egli copy framed bike with, instead of the the TZ engine in the pics, a TD3 engine in it.

Conclusion, now 3 happy guys with their madames not amused :P

Well,
had a bit of big luck end of January. I won a Honda RS250 NF5 production racer at a lottery in the UK.
The bike is at the Honda F1 headquarters in Milton Keynes at the moment, waiting to get lifted to Germany by a friend of mine.

I was and I am quite happy about this one. Would have never been able to own such a bike otherwise.

Congratulations Uwe, that is an impressive win.
Do you have room for an additional bike?

It will look great in your home office, I’m not sure much work will be done as I’m sure it will catch your eye

Richard,
in my home office I do my organisation work for our Classic race series only. So race bikes are related to it. When installed and build up properly there will be room for at least 3 bikes. Have to decide which 2 other ones will get the benefit to be in the warm house......only downside is that my madame don't know of my plans....... 8) But as the office is in our first floor she will have no complains as bikes or parts are only forbidden in the second floor where we normally live😁.......
Regards Uwe

Hi Uwe, hope you're well.
That's a cracking-looking bike!  What a win!  That must also be the understatement of the century:  "I am quite happy about this one"!

Colin

Hi Colin,
hope your family and you feeling well. All good here.
It is not an understatement, it's a Honda.... 😂. Only joking. I am really over the moon to have such a bike now. But that one is more a display bike. Absolut no spare parts available to keep it running at races. I will get on it myself for parades here and there.
Regards Uwe

Hey german. Your bike in the first picture of this post. What tyres are those? I had them on my road going RD350LC back in the day off my mates 250lc proddy racer. I can't remember what they were. Can they still be bought?

Hi vectisitch,
the tyres on the Hejira are Dunlop KR's. Very old ones and have to be changed before the bike will go out on the tracks again. Not available anymore anyway.
They will get replaced with a Avon AM26 90/90x18" front and an Avon AM22 110/80x18" rear.
Regards Uwe

Hi,
was a bit struggled with organisation work for our first race meeting this year we hold last weekend at my home track(just 5km away from home) Hockenheim, so I was not often here lately.
Finally my Honda NF5 that I won in January arrived last weekend in her natural habitation. I am very pleased with the bike. It is really perfect for a never restored 30 year old bike.

Well guys,
the lottery win bike is gone now. A friend persisted me to sell him the bike since he saw it when I got it delivered. He has genuine bikes of Toni Mang and Helmut Bradl in his collection and wanted something original also. In the end I gave up and sold her to him. Something Yamaha was in my mind now. First I wanted to buy a later V2 Yamaha 2stroke but deep in me I felt that I am oldschool bike wise. So I searched for a TZ/F-G model as I have a twinshock B and an E model to round up my collection. But per accident I got offered something even rarer with TZ engine. Luckyly the money I got for the Honda was still there and more than enough to buy it. It's a Siroko TZ250 from 1979. One of Antonio Cobas early creations before they were named Kobas or JJ-Cobas.

Yes, a very nice classic bike Ewe!  Much more usable than the RS I think!  :)  Design is interesting. Is that a 2 tank set up with a tank at the rear? Maybe magnesium Campagnolo's?  The front discs look to be RD solid discs with possibly Brembo 2 pot calipers?  So, a very original looking great condition classic.  Will you ride it?  :)

Cheers

Chris

Hi Chris,
as the bike was built in a time short after the Franco-system collapsed there were still import and custom restrictions parts and bikes related.
Siroko was a brand of Recmo, one of the biggest parts manufacturers for bikes and cars. For example Bultaco and Sanglas have a lot of Recmo parts on it. Recmo built Brembo parts under official licence.
The wheels on the Siroko are therefore Recmo brand mag wheels. The brakes were original all Recmo. On my bike only the rear caliper is still a Recmo one. The front calipers and master are now genuine Brembos. The ignition was changed from Motoplat to Kroeber inclusive the tacho. These 2 changes were done in the mid 80tees in Germany.
Well, the 2 tank Monocoque I figured not out yet. It is the only Siroko who has this. But I have a clue why. I tracked down who rode that bike in period. At least down to 2 riders. Normally the standard monocoque is more bulbous. But one of the 2 riders in question who rode it is Mingo Gil(later 80ccm Autisa GP rider) and he is very short and slim. Could be that they have to built a slimmer monocoque for him and had to built in the second tank in the seat to have enough fuel on board. It is very difficult to find infos about Siroko. But I have tracked down Mingo Gil and asked him about the bike, just waiting for response. Only 8 Sirokos with TZ engines were built back then. 2 in 1978 with 250ccm, 2 improved ones in 1979 with 250ccm also(mine is a 79 one) and 3 with 250ccm and one with 350ccm in 1980. The 350ccm bike is at a collector in Germany. I know him well but he hadn't done any investigation in the brand Siroko so far. He bought the bike as his and mine were owned by a late friend of him since the mid 80tees. He then sold on the now mine to a guy I know well also. From this guy I now got or better said get it. I have done the agreement and paid it but will get in after my friend comes home from his holidays.
And yes, if I fit the bike I will do some parades next year. And on one or two occasions I will lent it to a guy to race it.
Regrads Uwe
