    Old Tire Changer

    While picking up a motocross bike at a dealer in South Carolina over the weekend, the owner gave me an old Coats 200 Cycler tire changer. Pretty sturdy piece of equipment, just when I was about to pull the trigger on a Harbor Freight setup too! I've Googled the world over, and can't seem to find parts for this old dinosaur. Particularly, it looks like I need one of the rim holders, the bead breaker piece (attaches to that bent bar on the left lower part of the machine), and I know it orininally came with a bar for removing the tire from the rim. Interesting piece of equipment to say the least. The proper tools and some teflon rim protectors here and there might make this a good addition to the garage arsenal.

    I think NO-MAR makes some accessories for the Coats unit, you might give them a call 636.326.5999

    That is from the 70's. I know because I changed thouands of tires on one while working at a Goodyear tire center.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    Looks similar to the newer Coats 220 -- I'd check to see if the rim clamps are the same size.
