No, the TC185 is a totally different engine.

The head is a stock TS185 72/73 unit with decom valve. also has a few broken fins. Good paper weight.

The bore is a TS but unknown size. The Hop up bore has the size cast at the base 173cc

Interesting. Broken fins around the sparkplug holes suggests the bike would not start and plugs were in and out a fair bit by penis fingers. (I wonder if the 14mm (?) threads are ok?


Yea hop-up = hop-down. 185 is obviously over 175. There was no 185 race class AFAIK... Only 175.

As MyBad said, the hop-up/hop-down kit bore wont be 64mm, but smaller diameter to make it 175cc. A measurement of the bore or piston would let one know instantly. Also there will be 175cc (172cc or 173cc??) moulded on the barrel.

I don't know if the head fins are of different shape or not to stock TS to allow different shaped ex. chamber or not.

I am no expert on these earlier models!

ps. By the looks of it, all TS185's had high exhaust. The pamphlet shown is low exhaust...

Standard on all 185 is 64mm bore.

Hop up bore has 173cc cast into side.externally its exactly the same as all silver engine models.

Head on hop up has single central sparkplug.



Hop up pipe is underslung.

If you search this website thete is a plethora of information to answer any questions you may have on this subject.
