as i am new to the forum i thought it only right to say hello to everyone.
i live in uk (south wales) & i have a 1971 ts125j duster that i have owned for about 12 years,it has sat in the corner of my garage since i bought it (with the occasional start up to keep it running).it had been sat in the previous owners mums back garden for many years before i bought it & it was probably best described as walking wounded rather than a survivor,but it is now on the road to recovery.with a lot of tlc & maybe a little advise from the forum im hoping that it will live again.

Hi Taff,
I restored a TS125C a few years ago, it's a fun bike to thrash around.

Greetings Taff, and welcome to the asylum.
What are you like with bikes? - As in do you know anything about carbs, engines or electrics? No biggie as we can usually instruct you tgriugh most things, it's just easier if you have 'previous' with vehicles.
I have a Suzuki service manual which covers all tge models from tgat era and gives carb, electrical and other settings available if you'd like a copy free of charge. PM me your email address and i'll send you a copy.

thank you for the warm welcome to the forum.
i have had many bikes over the years,all shapes & sizes.
when i first got into bikes it was very different compared to these days.
no next day spares via internet,it took weeks on back order to get gaskets,bearings etc & if you didnt learn to fix your bike,you wouldnt have a bike for very long.
i am far from being an expert but i am happy to share what knowledge ( & experiences ) i have.
i have a fair knowledge of electrics,fuel system,clutch etc etc but i often learn something new,usually through someone sharing their experiences.
im sure that the forum has a wealth of info & advice to offer & i hope that i can give some helpful input in return.
my ongoing project ( ts125j ) is starting to take shape nicely but still plenty to do on it,i will try to post some pics,im not too hot on computer stuff though ( being as im a bit of an old git etc lol ).

glad to hear another old 2 stroke is being fixed up! ya pictures are kinda of tricky on this forum you have to use a seperate website like photobucket then copy the url to here. we can give you better instructions if you need them.
