    I'll have to look, but I just MIGHT have a throttle assy. for that bike.

    Would a Domino throttle work? :dunno

    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. :lol3

    This Coach was just so weird and such a good price I just could not resist. That and it kind of fits my :gerg trials style. :evil

    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. :poser

    A new spark arrester to keep from lighting fires. :lol3 Custom mounted in the spirit of junk bike. :poser

    Epoxied the hole in the side case and rattle canned it. Someone put the kick starter on backwards. :lol3

    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 :dunno I am sure this is made out of some type of unobtainium.

    I did find a new rear fender believe it or not. :evil 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. :thumb

    It is fun to play with weird 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 . :dunnoI 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. :lol3 I look forward to crashing head long into logs and rocks. :poser

    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! :thumb
