I wanna buy a trials bike in SoCal..
I've always wanted one. I'd like a 2000 or later bike, used but good condition.
I've seen Ryan's webpage, not much there.
Can't be spendin' $5K like that.
Sumpin' under $2500.
What're my chances?
What you got?

Have you tried Lewisport yet? If they don't have anything in your range, maybe they can point you in the right direction.

I have one ... but it's a '97
I have a 1997 Beta Techno 250 that I got from Lewisport a few years ago. I just had twins, so I have been thinning the moto herd lately ... I know I am not gonna have too much free time over the next few years and I hate to see bikes sit.
Only thng wrong with it is the front master cylinder seal blew when I was flushing the system last week. Lewisport has a new one coming in the mail to me ... should be good to go by next weekend.
It is a great beginner to intermediate bike ... Dougie Lampkin won the Worlds on a Techno in 97 .... so it won't hold you back.

Is it just me or do we want almost every bike we look at?

Suddenly I want to own a Trials Bike.
Is the parts readily available? I was recently looking for a trials rear tire & can't find a web store that sell those stuff, I guess I was looking at MX stores.
Anyone have an idea why Trials Bikes aren't so popular in SoCal?

Just moved from Michigan to California with 2 Montesas. They wouldn't green sticker them because they were newer than 2002. It can be done but I gave up and sold them. Make it easy on yourself and buy a 2002 or earlier.
