think its from around 1979 not sure. still to do some research on these bikes as i dont know alot about them.
im still not getting a spark from the plug but it dose work cause i tryed it on another bike could it be the coil
Alright, now your trollin.
a just wanted to get the wee thing runnig and get it looking new again just ma wee project
Take a photo of the front and back and other side
no probs give 10 minutes
Haha. I thought you were pulling our legs..
i put up they photos but i cant see them do i need to do it again or did u see them mate
What's with the English accent?
haha am no english am well in truly scottish
They showed up great
aye a just found them lol so whats the script with this bike do you know anything about them
thats a puch rough rider. we didnt get them in america, even though they show up in our catalogs. its similar to a magnum X. they were supposed to be 3-speed automatics, but im pretty sure thats just a single speed. kickstart E50. tons of parts available for those engines.
heres a pic of what that would have looked like new:
i love how in the 80s they could put "TURBO" on anything, even if it obviously wasnt turbocharged.
i knew it but every time i searched for a rough rider i could never get any info on the bike so i was just starting asume it was a magnum x cause of the simularties but thanks for that mate
no problem, they are pretty similar, same engine, carb and pipe. 17mm bing on a kickstart E50.
i think the wheels might be a different size, different tank and seat...no fork-mounted speedometer.
personally i think theyre a little cooler than the magnum X. nice find!
how much are one of these today do you know
ehh, i can only go by magnum X pricing, but really its not set in stone or anything, magnum X's go for anywhere from $0-500ish if theyre really nice. they arent super valuable, but people want them.
ah i see i know that people want to get there hands them thats why i asked you about the price but for now i just want to restore the bike keep it as my little project al post more pics when its looking good iv just got to find out why it want spark now i think its the lightning coyle or just the coyle duno but cheers again for that am off the noo
good luck man, show some pics if you make progress, these things are cool.
i will do..............
