UPDATE !

The engine is back from the shop, a complete rebuild, looks nice so far:






And now the most important side without the reeds:


The entrance for air and gas has been widened for the 250cc reeds, I believe this baby will now get enough feed for the 200cc.

And it's slowly getting together too, as usual, don't expect very fast improvements, the cylinder still rubs a little bit at the front frame tubes (have to shave of 2mm of the fins) and there is still the swing arm where the sockets for the rear axle has to move backwards, ... but the first impression is nice, also the weight reduction:



Not to forget the MX clutch case which saved weight to the engine too.

Honda factory bikes

I was lucky enough to own one of the "factory" Hondas, but it was one of Bob Nicholson's "home made" bikes, before they had enough of the real works bikes to go around. They started with a TL250, cut the steering head, snipped the down tubes off below the engine for ground clearance, put in an XL350 crank to get the displacement up around 300cc's, and made titanium shafts and fasteners to replace about 80% of the stock parts. It had some trick factory rear hub, too (magnesium?). I got it because I hung out with Bob when I worked for Honda R&D in 78-79, and rode with him on several occassions. (He was freakin' awesome, by the way). My bike was Joe Gugliemelli's (SP?) practice bike, as far as I can tell. I sold the bike when in a pinch to Gary Lawver of Skagit Powersports, and they restored it nicely, and still have it.

It was a beast, and still too heavy, but didn't lack power!

Bob`s bikes always ran good. Wiltz Wagner and Bob put on the first trials school I rode. He also came down a couple of times on his TL125, before the TL250 came out. I was lucky enough to ride one of the factory Honda`s while at a National. I miss my modified TL300 that I sold when I bought my first house during the first year of marriage. I often wonder why I did that!

Bob

Sadly, I only rode the TL300 in one trial (Gold Bar, 1979), but the bike worked, and MUCH better than the stocker. Even so, it wasn't as good as my new Model 199 Bul, so I didn't use the TL much more after that. Given my mediocre skills, I might as well have stayed with it! If anybody is in NW Washington, the bike is at Skagit Powersports, nicely restored. This shop, by the way, is a real trials center, and worth a visit. Bob let me ride a real RTL305 before I moved up here from LA, and it was a religious experience. Fun days, when "works" meant something!
