Ok so I had a rummage around today and found two potential candidates for a parts swap.
Theres a 1988 A3 that looks in really good condition apart from the kick start lever stop peg thing that is a bit bent but will bend back no probs. The rubber is also missing but im sure I have a spare somewhere I can throw in.
I also have an A35 bottom end circa '91. This one isnt as nice as the left side cover has seen a bit of chain action and the twat that owned it before me (and he was a proper twat, he charged me for an exhaust and didn't send it) WELDED the kick lever onto the shaft. I removed it and cleaned it up ok but you'll need to spend 20mins with a file to get the lever mounting collar to fit right, but thats no problem for you gurus...
So thats it, pick your engine and I'll swap your pedal start engine internals, side cover(s? Would we get away with just one?), Pedals and cranks for my kicker internals, lever assembly/spring situation, foot pegs, hardware and bracket. I'll even throw in some british candy to literally sweeten the deal.
My eventual goal is to scratch build a pedal start Targa LX from imported bits as they dont exist over here, so anybody who can help me out with that dream on a tight budget will be doing God's work
