For sale - 1982 Ascot with lots of goodies
« on: March 10, 2020, 01:31:19 pm »
Folks, sorry to say but I'm getting out of Ascots (for now!).

Bike is currently for sale as a project:  https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/mcy/d/portland-1982-honda-ft500-ascot-project/7089686369.html

Trying to track down the two starter gears I need (see http://ascot500.com/index.php/topic,1068.0.html ... any help appreciated).  If I can get my hands on them I'll get the starter back up and sell it as a "motorcycle" instead of a "project motorcycle".

Bike was running great until the starter gears broke a few weeks ago.

Not quite ready to part it out.  Heading to one of my local shops tomorrow to try to find the starter gears I need.  Will keep folks updated.

I have a pair of extra rear shocks ,they are missing the rubbers for the eyelets but other than that seem to be good ,could use the springs and bodys a repaint,no pitting on the shafts and no leaks  35 dollars will buy them and whatever it costs to ship, can send a pic to your phone if you PM a number

Got my hands on some spare starter gears (BIG thanks to Joe P. at Vicious Cycle in Portland) so pulled the CL ad and am going to try to get the bike back up and running.  I won't get that much more out of her, but a running bike's better than a non-running "project".

Will keep folks posted here.

Was this addressed towards me, triguy? I have stock shocks, but was scheming on Patrick's aftermarket shocks. ;D I figured that he would get more for the shocks separately than with the bike..
Patrick, that's amazing you found the starter gears!!!

Well, starter is back up and running (and sounds good), now no spark! 

I printed out the "no spark" thread on this forum, and will start working through it.
