    I've gone on ad-nauseum about the Junk 'Flex. Here's the proof.

    The initial pile. Note the broken frame.

    And the second pile.

    And the pile in which the pile was unearthed (thanks Grizzz!!!)

    And yet a third (and some of the others)

    Yes, it was snowing while cleaning junk parts. :vardy


    And the fun of disassembling broken framed junk. :waysad

    Yes, a good time could be had by all. It now runs well, leaking head gasket, low power, rubbish brakes and suspension, horrid looks notwithstanding. C'mon vintage guys. There are plenty of dumpster refugees out there waiting to be revived (I have less than 300 bucks in this whole mess so far-fuel and entry fees included!!!) to be section ready. You in??

    Do you have a rolling chassis? or is that what you used to make the runner?

    Looks like some high quality stuff right there. Congrats on your find.
    I picked up a tlr last November with 221 miles. Has been a blast for my first trial bike.

    The rolling chassis made the runner. I think I'm down to a set of wheels and hubs, brakes, a bent tank, and other odds and ends. I'll have to look.

    I might want that whole pile in the last pic busted frame included. I will need the swing arm also if you still have it. I'm thinking of mating the rear part of the frame with another frame front, but I need the forks too. I'm thinking a real frankentrials bike!

    I have the engine out of the bike that Chris is “riding” in the driveway. The engine is stuffed into a XL350 frame and I haven’t ridden it in a few years I might be willing to part with it for the right trade /price. (and I do have the rest of that 80):ear

    I sold the broken frame and a set of forks & triples to Colorado rider Al Duke. I might still have the swingarm, I'll have to look, and I'll PM you tonight with a list of what I have left over (not including the fender mount, which is on it's way to Australia.)

    Good idea on the Frankentrialer. That is what Al is building, combining an old TL with the TLR bits that I sold him. I can hardly wait to see it.

    Now, what do I need off of Grizzz's 80............? :scratch

    Hey brewtus, I just picked up a 87 TLR200 at the swap meet this weekend.
    I need a clutch lever and perch. And the tank is a leaker. What do you
    have left?

    Well, I do have a stock clutch lever and perch, because I installed the Moose Racing adjustable perch and lever assembly. It dramatically reduced the clutch pull (almost as light as a hydraulic clutch!), so I would definitely recommend it. I have a tank, but it is bent something awful (it was the only thing holding the broken frame together at the top). Other than that, I'm down to bent wheels, hubs, brakes, OE garbage handlebars, hacked wiring harness, ETC...

    PM me later, and I'll send you pics of what I have.

    It looks like my old white '69 2002. Mine was rusty in the same rear fender lip!:lol3 Sorry about the hijack, I don't know squat about trials but it looks like fun.

    Edit: Mine had a blue interior; yours looks like tan. Blue was faster.

    I have definitely got to meet up with you guys. You are spit and wire mechanics after my own heart.
