750 Paso keys

Post by oilyrover »

One of the many projects I've undertaken after acquiring a second hand Paso is to get a second set of keys made. I found the information in the forum FAQ but couldn't make any progress.

I found a listing on Ebay for a 750 Paso ignition key and ordered it. The body of the key was reversed and didn't fit into the lock so I did some digging and contacted the owner of the shop that sent the key.

Mark is a great guy and recently relocated his family and business to Redmond Oregon in the US.

After talking a bit and comparing notes we settled on some options. I returned the key blank to him and he sent me two options for the ignition and one for the helmet lock. All three fit and I had them cut today and they work.

Mark's business is Klassic Keys. His email address is klassickeys@hotmail.com and you can call or text him at 949-485-8916

The two ignition key blanks he sent were;
Ilco FT46
Silka SP25AP (this has a plastic head vs the Ilco that is a plain all metal key)

The Helmet lock blank was a Silka ZD7.

We are working on the seat lock key. It seems that the seat lock is a repurposed cabinet lock assembly.

I got my keys from http://keys4classics.com/ in Australia. Perfect match/fit. I only had to provide photos, Stuart did the rest, $54 for all three, plus shipping. Great service, highly recommended.

Great to have options.

The seat lock blank arrived from Mark and fits.
