  1. I remember identical “funky red leather thumb guard[s]” on bikes I saw in Portland, OR almost thirty years ago. I might even have had one on my Ducati. I think Tom at Montesa West sold them. I wonder if it was a Montesa item, or a Pacific Northwest idiosyncrisy, or an observed trials thing. BTW I owned an Impala, also a VR motocrosser, and a 348 Cota, and a Rickman/Montesa converted to a road racer.

  2. Hi,
    I have the same Montesa Texas Scorpion. It needs headlights, tailights and the mounting brackets. I’d really like to do a nice restoration and wonder if you would help me with more pictures.
