Sweller's MZ TS150

Discussion in 'Classic Motorbikes' started by The Older Gentleman, Aug 9, 2003.

  1. Coo, innit a cracker? A nice patina of age on it, a few rust spots here
    and there, but all complete, everything working, and it goes like a
    good'un. Very healthy sounding engine.

    I've been beetling to the shops on it today. I'd forgotten what fun
    these little MZs are as SOBs, assuming you don't take them too
    seriously. At at ukp160, I'm not.

    Only fly in the ointment is the Siamese Rubber front tyre which is
    utter, utter shite and (I suspect) homicidal in the wet, so I'll change
    that as soon as I can find a tuit.

    It goes, it even stops, it handles, it's nippy and fun.

    The Older Gentleman was seen penning the following ode to ... whatever:
    Hmm. Patina. Judging by the pictures that's *one* way of describing
    Hmm. CIHAGM?

  3. It's missing some framer paint here and there, but that's always easily
    sorted. There are some rust spots on the apinted (grey) steel front
    guard, but I just happen to have a can of aerosol grey which I used to
    repaint the Dax's guards...

    For a 25 year-old bike it's in pretty good shape.
    S'pose so.....

    Ooh that's despicable! (makes note for future use) ;-)

    As I'm keeping it, any recommendations for proper paint?

  5. Halfords touch-up. I have lots of thoise little,phials and just mix them
    up to obtain the shade I want.

    For frames - gloss black usually does the trick.

    Thanks for that, I'll give it a try.
