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.

Sachs Rear Shock off GasGas TXT
For sale is a Sachs rear shock absorber off a GasGas TXT. I believe this came off a 2001 TXT, but this same shock fits GasGas trials bikes from 2000 on. It was removed almost right away from a new bike and rode the shelf for many years. It great replacement for some needing a practically new shock.
$100 including shipping in the US. I like Paypal and PM with questions.
Thanks for looking.
