You may also want to check with Certified Parts Corporation in Jamesville, Wisc. and
Richard Clark. They both may have NOS decals. But you will need the part numbers.

You should be able to find the part numbers in the parts manual section of this
web site.

Hi and thanks for the add!

My name is Mark Roberts, I live in central Illinois and recently picked up a Rockford Tora.

Our local dealer when I was growing up in Southern IL was Bonners Cycle in Mt Vernon IL.
He sold Bridgestone, Hodaka and Bultaco.
I'll never forget the sound of his riders testing SR100's and 175's at the local flat tracks!

By the time I was 11, Bridgestone had gone out of business, and Rockford Motors had started
building the Chibi, Tora, Taka bikes.
I was very impressed with the Tora at the time and finally got one in my collection.

I occasionally get up to the Rockford area and have looked for any signs of Rockford Motors, not much
exists that I've been able to find. I recently met a retired mechanic that told me of going to the parent
plant for service training in the late 60's.

          I often use other forum sites to investigate issues on the GTR. If I had to register as a member to gain access to their info, I probably wouldn't bother. Keep our site open to guests, helps to spread the BS message and raise interest / prices ?

         Lambretta,
                           The Amazon seal you found is an example of what I was saying above. This seal does not have two garter springs. The second lip (as shown in the ad photo) is simply an unsprung rubber dust lip and would be ideal for external wheel bearing or engine seals where dust/grit needs to be excluded.  They may not provide the two way pressure sealing required on our crankshafts.                                                                                                                     Brian.
