Not too many 1986 models out there. The `86 was a far better bike. Funny it has 1985 sprockets on it.

Just got me a TLR -'86. Good cond/all orig..was girl bike. Some scratches & honest patina for a 28yr old.
Starts in 3 kicks, sounds good, idles fast when warmed up-ideas?
Seems nice enough to through some money at. Will start w/ tires, chain & sprockets - of course. I'm not a trials rider, so will use it for light enduro & a garage queen in the stable. Would like to lower the pegs, raise seat & bars. Maybe improve brakes. BTW I'm old too, so nothing drastic. Just fun;-)
Thanks for any input. Regards, Ric. in Ariz.

Lots of threads recently about the cost of entry into trials. This bike is available in Wichita, KS from Eric, squirrelmojo@gmail.com

I just know about it is all. Don't PM me. Email him. He told me he'd like to get $2k.

You guys who want a cheap entry to trials please don't buy older beaters. They'll nickel and dime you to death and they don't resell well. Buy bikes that look like the following and go riding! I have not ridden this bike so this isn't a hard endorsement from motobene, just an opportunity to check out what looks like a clean early modern bike.

Very clean, although I think 2k is pretty optimistic.

I have one for about the same use. Pegs down about 2" works for me. Larger pegs are good but interfere with kicker.

11 tooth front sprocket helped a lot for slow riding.

Added about 2" of foam and recovered seat. Shaved foam to make flatter top. Doesn't look as cool as the stock seat but sure rides better.

Brakes? What brakes? Best thing is that the engine has strong compression braking.

Others have said stock carb is way too lean. I have not rejetted yet. Some recommend new eBay carb from China works well. Others have recommended advancing the cam timing about 6 degrees. I have new sprocket, have not gotten around to that either.

Remember, You don't stop riding because you get old, you get old because you stop riding. Have fun!

Looks to be a very clean lightly ridden Beta at a fair price for California.

2006 Sherco 2.9 Trials Bike - $2000 (Gettysburg, PA)


Good mechanical condition, newly rewound stator by Motoplat UK, new CDI unit. 2 missing bolts for tank and fender (easy fix, just haven't had the time). Fork seal on one side is leaking a little. Cylinder was recently inspected by local mechanic and has plenty of life left. Paid $2600 for the bike in October...no time to ride. Call me at seven 1 7 nine six five 16 sixteen and leave message. I will get right back to you, please no texts.
