WTB entry level trials bike

Looking at getting into trials and want an entry-level bike. I'd prefer a 4-stroke, and something that is in good working condition. I don't need anything fancy or top of the line, just something that works; I don't want to buy one of the rusty messes that you see on eBay. Ideally this would be something I could pick up locally, as I don't want to spend another 600 bucks for shipping. I'm in Bakersfield, CA and I'd probably drive up to 6 hours away to pick something up. My budget is really on the low side, so don't bother messaging me about a pristine newer model or something like that because I just don't have the cash for it. Thanks!

Trials Kickstand Info... Beta Techno 1997

So I am getting into trials - I just purchased an old Beta Techno 250. It was missing the kickstand; I didn't think it a big deal until my first trials event. Each section I had to find somewhere to lean it in order to walk the lines, etc.. At some point I turned off the fuel because it was dripping while leaning which led to a stall, a 5 and Noob embarrassment.

Long story short, I need a kickstand, but parts for this bike are hard to find at reasonable price. I could buy an OEM kickstand with the mount for $175 (more than 10% of the bikes value) or buy a clamp-on-swing-arm for less than $50. Thoughts? Advice?

Nobody happens to have a 1997 Beta Techno 250 kickstand for sale... ???

PRE- Pro engine, gasgas parts? anyone?

I have a 93, we use it as a loaner bike....

they broke the part of the kicker that swings out, looks to me no reason that any year from 1992- to even a 2002 TXT wouldn't work. Rising sun might have one, new, but I need to find this in some dusty parts bin no longer needed type of thing...

Any suggestions who might have something like this, PM me! or email me.

Thanks!

Trials 290 sherco

TRIALS 290 SHERCO - $3900
Sherco 290 Trials bike 2007 It is in very good condition with very lows hours. It has some nicks and scratches but nothing bad. It has one sticker coming loose that needs gluing or replacement. It is ready to go with a new air cleaner and a new set of tires to be put on before your first trials. I just put on the top of the line S3 foot pegs. This is one of the very best trials bikes made and it is a very competitive machine. Tallahassee Florida area

Interested in buying a late model trials bike to experiment with; it's the one type of dirt riding I can literally do in my backyard.

I am located in the Philly suburbs. Something in the 2-3k range and good running condition would be ideal. Also, must be in quiet trim.

WTB: 125-200 modern trials bikes

I am looking for two bikes, one for myself and one for the wife. The wife rides my 280 now but I have to start it for her. So ideally, I'd like to pick up one smaller bike and see how it suits her. I'd like to keep the bike prices below $3k, maybe closer $2k each. I want a modern chassis, I don't like messing with old stuff.
