Thanks Lurkerlou, That is a nice Dalesman Mine is the Puch powered model. I bought it off ebay and the only way the seller would ship it was to break it down and box it up and send UPS. I've been slowing redoing parts ever since. Maybe this winter it will become one part. Here is a picture of it from the ebay add



I hope to get it close to this some day

Why Vintage

If it was easy anybody could do it! LOL But I have to agree with Sting 32. We must be crazy to spend the time and money to restore and ride a heavy, underpowered, no brakes bike when we could be riding modern. My problem is I'm too old to fall off obstacles that require a spotter/catcher and I don't mind it when someone says "That's a nice looking old bike. Too bad you can't ride worth a crap"
This is the 2nd right hand shift Cota I have done in 3 years. This one I have been riding since March 2011 but I just got around to tearing it back down to do plating, polishing, SS spokes and the powdercoating. The engine work and tank painting were done so I set a record for myself (30 days) Going to Munster Tx tonight and break it in tomorrow.

No question there! But you can't always apply logical parameters to a sport which is largely about passion.
Go to an airshow and you will watch the modern fast movers swosh and wizz by showing levels of performance only dreamed of a few generations ago. But when the old war birds show up (despite the more modest performance exibited) heads turn, fingers point and smiles break out as the ground shakes and the sky is filled with the look and sound of living history that can't be matched by their successors!

At least the modern jets have a place to sit!

I still have to stop and look up when I hear a round engine or a 4 cylinder Conti (got my ticket in a Champ) I just like OLD
Real motorbikes are 6volt and have kickstarters Lol
Real airplanes have a stick and a tailwheel Lol
I have to admit though, I enjoy watching the modern bikes do amazing things

Was out riding a little today on my 1974 Honda TL125 K1. I just got it running yesterday after replacing the piston and boring the head 1.0 mm overbore. Now that its running I will be looking for a set of fenders, side panels, new clutch pack, rebuild carb and perhaps a light kit later on. I dont plan on doing any Trials, just light Trail duty's.

I wish there was a Vintage trials club on the west coast (USA).


Start one.

I think a better plan is to assimilate vintage Trials riders into the modern Trials clubs and events.Hopefully that will result in a stronger Trials club, rather than having a weak modern, and a weak vintage club.
A vintage Trials bike can be competitive in the lower classes of modern Trials, and many riders have been riding them thusly, but I think that catering specifically to vintage bikes will attract more riders.
In the past our club has always maintained that if enough vintage bikes show up at events we would make a class for them. It's never happened for us. So now I'm going to actively recruit vintage riders and create the class in advance. I'll post a flyer for my June 24th Trial (near Spokane WA) here. If I can get a good response I'm sure I can convince other clubs and marshals to do the same.

How many is enough? My bike will be there, I don't know if I will be riding it or not but I'm sure if I chicken out I can get someone to compete on it.

That's true, if no one signs up no one signs up. The point is if I show up at least I'm one person, it might not be enough but it's a start. If I don't compete and get one of my buddies to sign up and compete then there will be one vintage bike out there and that was the point. If Lamotovita is out there on his vintage bike that's two. Perhaps that's not enough but it's a start and if everyone sits back and waits for everyone else then nothing will happen. There are getting to be more and more people in this area interested in vintage bike and I'm hopeful there will be more vintage events.

Sorry if my posting seems to be a waste of time for you to read.
