    I had a Deltek Grass Grub mini bike (you guessed it, lawnmower engine) first then the old man bought home a pristine TY80
    Although he never rode trials himself he had it in his head that we would.
    I used to curse that bike as I chased XR75's through the trails bottoming out the suspension everywhere I went but it sure could take a flogging and come back for more without so much as a wash for maintenence.

    Went on to the red and white TY175 ( loved that bike) then the yellow and white 250.

    Best thing about trials bikes is you learn to ride the right way no matter what else you find your self on.

    After that trip down memory lane I gotta say that if there was a Society For The Prevention of Cruelty To Small Bikes you bastards would be in the hall of fame!
    Whats next show jumping on a Shetland ponies?
    Perhaps side car racing with Honda Monkey bikes.

    You said it yourself, these things are all but indestructible. In the 3 years that the League has competed on the Team TY (along with the occasional Twinshock competition done by one of us for fun), the ONLY thing that has ever broken on our TY was the silencer mount under the seat. That's it. We've bent the handlebars into origami, but the rest of the bike is fine.



    Nope. We like motorcycles, not hayburners. Besides I've heard that after you run them awhile, they get a little hoarse..... :lol3




    Funny you should say that. We have been considering a sidecar for the TY........:evil

    Maybe it's buried here in the thread but I'm too lazy.

    Does anyone use the B&J TY80 peg kit? My new TY80 has some bungled pegs on it. Somebody welded one side totally fixed and did a total booger job. The other side just has a bent peg. The B&J kit is $140 :eek1 but moves the pegs lower and farther back. Since the once side is pretty much shot I thought maybe this would be a decent fix, but I don't want to dump a bunch into this bike.

    EDIT - I looked at it again today. I think I can flip sides with the footpeg plates and move the mounts farther back and down. If that doesn't work I'll cut some new plates with a plasma cutter. I'll use OSET 36v pegs instead. :thumb.

    I think if you switch sides, the pegs dont fold when you crash/pass too close to rocks. not sure though it has been quite a while since I sold ours. back and down is best for someone being competitive, not sure how much it matters for a kid, once a kid gets half way good, a modern bike is a must, If you ask me anywho...

    My dad just added strap iron the same size or so as original peg, but makes so the peg "width" (front to back, not fram to outside of peg) was increased, the key was adding to back of peg not the front. easy to do with vice, hammer and welder. Red line is what he added to the "straightened original pegs" if that helps ya any.

    The peg mounts are simple to make and the BJ pegs don`t move them enough. If you look at page 1 of the thread at the bike Brewtus has tried to destroy that was a bike I made for my oversize son. I just used flat stock and a chop:lol3 saw. Took less than an hour total time. I used rev3 mounts and pegs. You could use any beta or maybe montesa mounts. Not cost effective, but I had them laying around. I`m sure Brewtus would give out the measurements.

    For a small fee of course... :lol3


    Lineaway's peg mounts are the main reason that the League is so Extraordinary on our TY. No way us normal sized fatasses (and one skinnyass) could ride this thing without them. PM me with promises of lavish gifts (or a half-hearted mention of a lukewarm beer) and I'll provide the specs. Maybe. :D

    Anybody wanna buy an 80? :evil I think $650 is more than fair. Everything works great, but I don't have anywhere to ride it, and want something small and 4-stroke for hunting/scouting...

    Those are the 2012 Team New Mexico jerseys worn by our national riders. We all had one, so we dressed for success. :D

    Afraid not. The well-dressed man came in 4th on Saturday and 3rd on Sunday. Not a bad showing for a very large man on a very small TY. :thumb

    I do believe however, that an inmate won the class that Moomoo rode, didn't he Bob? :evil

    Yep, another season of silliness is upon us. Yesterday the Team TY received a new rear tire, and some actual Trials gearing, replacing the Bonneville gearing we had been running -

    [​IMG]



    Only one problem. The bigger sprocket put the chain into the oversize mystery shock -

    [​IMG]



    How to fix this........Oh yeah! I'm a Redneck!

    [​IMG]



    With the shock "shimmed" out of the way, chain clearance and buffoonery is gained! :thumb

    Ride report and pics coming. I'll let you know how that oddball Vee Rubber rear tire works out. :D
