    @Frankster planted the seed that I should build up a trackbike to help promote my business plus it gives me an excuse to get back out on the track, so yesterday I picked up a very sorry looking MC22 for $180.00

    She is very low on compression so I will fit a spare engine that I have here, then build her up like my last one.

    Just made my first purchase to @maelstrom for a seal kit and scored some cheap coerce rear sets on ebay.

    Does anyone have a spare seat ? Mine is pretty chewed up

    Hey.
    Looks like a good start to me.
    $180 beats the $500 I paid for the basis of my track machine.
    Still not fully sorted yet though.

    Peter.

    Hey Chris. I was looking to replace my seat with a thin form to lose some weight. I've seen lots of track bikes with them.

    The issue is that the race glass supplied by teamtiger or BSpoke use the stock seat and mountings, I am yet to find cost effective raceglass for a MC22 that can have a seat like that.

    Nice score. If anyone knows someone who does fibreglass mould making, I'd be happy to let the track ducktail I have get copied. Just have to fill in a few sections first.

    @A.C. they are awesome, alas I don't know anyone who does fibreglassing

    Some progress has been made on the old girl, alas the engine that came with it has no compression, and the spare motor I have been hording for a while has very low compression on 3 pots and none on one. :( , but that is okay.

    I have a MC19 engine which I may use instead. Or will keep an eye for a crashed MC22 that has a good engine.

    It appears this bike lived outside for a few years, even after having it a week, I am still seeing ants come out of every orifice.

    I have bought a few bits and bobs for it including head stem bearings , control cables, sprockets, chain etc , I will pick up some fork seals later this week so I can get it back to a roller. The H bar was bent and badly corroded, I gave it a quick blast, straightened it as best I could and painted it. Triple tree ready for new bearings as well.

    gave the forks a once over in the Wet Blaster as I was doing some parts for an old Honda Scrambler and figured might as well do it all at once, now just waiting for seals to arrive then they can be rebuilt.

    They look new. That blaster is unreal. Those engines might just have stuck rings.

    I've always thought getting Honda RS250 race glass on an MC22 would be a cool project.
