    Hi newish member from Hampshire aUK 200s rear suspension identification please.

    Hi everyone as the title says newish as I have been a member since 2008 just never posted on here as Iím part of a small group of 3 wheel enthusiasts from the uk, of whom a few I know are members on here as well.

    Iíve had a bit of a sort out and and been fine tuning my small collection but I have just bought a 200s that was imported to the uk from Colorado it has a weld on rear suspension set up but Donít know if itís a kit or homemade if it was homemade it was done very well so some help would be great I know there are a few guys who are really into the aftermarket kits etc

    A little update if interested,
    So she is slowly making her way back to her new home, a friend lived not very far picked it up and brought it to another friend (Jason) as he was visiting which is nearly half way so we are getting there.
    Jason has kindly had a look to see why it was a non runner so he put some fuel in and a new plug and she ran!!!
    He has given the carb a clean and she runs very well! (Did try to load a video but wonít seem to load)
    It looks like the rear swing arm pivot will need a bit of tlc but not bad at all. Also found a need headlight guard in the garage that Iíd forgotten about, bonus

    Very lucky and a real bonus Iím very pleased.
    For a moment we thought the front forks had been up graded but after some comparisons with standard forks it would appear not. But it did get me wondering apart from going aftermarket full suspension are there many other options Iíve heard of the terry fork kits but donít ever see them, weíre they any good or offer much improvement

    Ok so a couple of weeks ago I finally got to see and ride this 200s and omg I had soooo much fun on this thing it was awesome I was smiling all day
    My friend had kindly given it a look over and done a few jobs cleaned the carb, put a new swing arm bolt in as the other was a touch short, fitted a new roller to the chain tensioner and generally make sure everything was tightened up etc for its first proper test run.
    Well the results were very good it behaved very well apart from a few miner things, just had to tighten up the axle bolts as they had barely worked loose but it was enough for the chain to slacken off ever so slightly, but that was soon put right the only other issue we found was the clutch would slip ever so slightly when you were pulling hard up hill, but we think we are going to drop the oil and put some fresh in which Jason had kindly done before itís maiden outing (bike specific semi synthetic) but we donít know what oil the importers used, and they could of used fully fully synthetic and we know how the wet clutches donít like that. So we will try that before we start stripping it down.
    On another note I managed to pick up some after market NOS forks for it(very lucky) just need some triples to go with it if any one could help that would be great


    Oh and the bassani exhaust sounds awesome
