Hey brewtus, if you start the TY80 thread and explain the silly rules, I'll post the pics!
I have not yet played with it as I am waiting on a new throttle tube, But I do have the proper outright junk.
I'll have to look, but I just MIGHT have a throttle assy. for that bike.
Would a Domino throttle work?
Nice Can't wait to get my junk TL back out this season.
Nice write up on the ride, too! Inspirational.
It is a domino but is broken where the cable sheath goes into the housing. I ordered up a new one from Tryalsshop two weeks ago so it should show any month now.
This Coach was just so weird and such a good price I just could not resist. That and it kind of fits my trials style.
Nice putter Lomax! That should be good for a few cuts and bruises!
I got some things cleaned up and painted and it looks much better now. I can't wait to give it a go when the parts finally get here.
Who knew that a trials bike is supposed to have passenger pegs, ones that flop down all the time. oser
A new spark arrester to keep from lighting fires. Custom mounted in the spirit of junk bike. oser
Epoxied the hole in the side case and rattle canned it. Someone put the kick starter on backwards.
OOPS I just noticed that the headlight switch is broken. :eek1 Oh well it starts and the kill switch works. The head light is on. So I guess don't bother with it I am sure this is made out of some type of unobtainium.
I did find a new rear fender believe it or not. but will probably not put it on until it is time to sell or I completely destroy this one. The 20 lbs of aluminum plate and pop rivets is holding the current one together nicely.
It is fun to play with weird stuff.
Gotta love old stuff!!
A quick update on the Fantic. OK I am not really a trials rider but did used to own a Beta a while back. The Fantic runs great and is a lot of fun but it is terribly nose heavy . I mean you need to get your butt back over the rear fender to even bring the front up. I guess I can just assume that is the way these older ones work. My Beta would loft the front end with a light flick of the wrist. So I guess I get to learn ALL over again and again. I look forward to crashing head long into logs and rocks. oser
That's half the fun of Trials. I do it all the time!
Amen, brother. Still nursing my back (one week ago, today, since my little "incident")......
Called Lewissport yesterday, Mandy is sending my new "slow throttle".
love the tl
I hhave the same one tha im doing up when i get home. Does anyone know a parts supplier
The bike is running and registerable as it. However i want to bring it back to life.Needs side covers.....
Dragged OJ out to get friendly with it today. I'm entering it in the Sandia Classic vintage trials next weekend. Hope doing silly stunts like this helps......
Another shot, same silly-assed up.......
And a beauty shot of it parked next to NMTA member Tracy Brooks' very nice example. Something had to beauty up old OJ!
Sandia Classic Vintage Motorcycle weekend is next weekend. I'll post it in the "Upcoming Events" thread also.
I'll have to be honest, that looks painful...

And you own a 4RT, blasphemy.<o></o>
Only the landings!
What was that gear shift lever I needed to get for the Reflex? So they can be even more like twins!
If I remember right, the shift lever is an aftermarket (MSR I think) for a Honda CRF150R. Works well with the lowered pegs.
Congrats on your first post!
1st post!! Yeah!!!!
My speach to her worked! Now you're an official inmate!
