30 years ago this year i rode a 320 SWM in events, and also one year ago to the day i dislocated my knee badly.. so to celebrate this twin anniversary friend Martin who owns motoswm.com lent me his 320 Jumbo SWM for a trial at the weekend.
You can really tell the 30 years worth of development after getting off my 290 Beta onto this!!
Had such a great time at the trial that it has made me think about riding a few more twinshock events.. here is the yellow beasty after washing alongside Dave Dawson's very tricked up version that i also brought home with me!

Sounds like your knee is better but the cheque book is about to hurt!

What a nice looking SWM. That has to be a set of paoli`s on the front. Wow 30 years sure has gone by fast. I can remember when that was modern!

Yes they are off a GasGas i believe.. Dave has done a brilliant job on that machine, the tank is actually part of the frame now for example.. there isn't any frame spine at all.
But i have to say if i was riding a twinshock in twinshock events i would rather have a bike like the yellow 320 Jumbo i rode that only has a few tweaks, the same ones done by the works riders at the time. It has Betor front forks in Marzocchi clamps for example (it does however have an aprilia clutch cover as it makes the clutch easier and more reliable).

I won't be spending any money just yet on anything... not in this economy :)

This is what 30 years of development look like side by side.. My Beta and the Jumbo 320.

I could have posted it in videos but this is very cool old French trial stuff, (with Charles Coutard):

Very nice vid, with many Buls in real nice terrain.

Thank you for the nice video.
It was only 1973 and some people already wanted to forbid trial bikes...

Just want to add a pic of my vintage/twinshock ride. This is an actual HRC bike and not a TLR copy although many of them look awesome. This model was built right before the RTL mono shock model came out, and it a ton of fun to ride.

Great looking bikes guys.The thing I love about the twin shock bikes is that they are all very unique . To me the modern bikes of all kinds all kinds look the same. Vintage trials are beautiful in their simplicity.
