There’s some good advice already in this thread. Replace the damaged tube with a new one. The only tool needed is a 13mm socket wrench.

One thing - assemble the new tube, rim and tire, fill the ...

That Chetak does look nice. No rubber around the cowls though.... And I doubt Many if any Stella parts would fit - as the ad says. Also “no title” would be a big pain.

You could try it and let us know.

I’d clean off the rust and then apply a thin coat of grease between the rims.

Have you checked to see if the cylinder could be rebored for an over-sized piston? That way you could keep your current setup.

If you go with the DR177, I think you’ll need a 24/24 carb.

I’m not sure what spark plug I have in it right now. It’s best to have ...
