    Yes cleaning up the innerside of the rims is necessary.

    I also ride the bikes an hour or so with about 1 bar pressure, this helps the tire to set properly (all kind of tires),
    I have the same "outfit" mounted to the Bultaco the bike has too Acront / Llanta red label rims (old TR Type) like the SWM mounted.

    The tubeless tires will not stay on original Yamaha TY twinshock rims if you have mounted them to your bike,
    the bead of the rim is different in shape, (there are no hump's inside the rim).

    Have you guys tried the tubliss system... several around here say they are very good. Use on a standard rim but makes it tubeless so you can run at lower pressures and use the modern tyres.

    Both system sounds very nice, but at least where I live sadly not allowed for classic competitions.
    Our guidelines for classic specify that only tires with tubes are approved.

    I just got this one. I want to set it up for competition. First things I think I need are lower foot pegs ( I see Sammy Miller and B and J Racing have them). Are there any others and can anyone comment on any of them?
    Also shocks, I have NJB experts on my Bultaco and want something better than those. I'd like to hear some recommendations. Any recommendation as to what length shocks would also be appreciated.

    I can`t quite tell, it looks like the pegs are too forward. Yamaha and the dealers tried to make the ty more user friendly by changing the footpeg location.

    I agree on the footpegs, a set of MS pegs and some rockshocks would do wonders!

    The Bike has the optional enduro peg mounts from Yamaha, which will be available for sale or trade when I get some proper Trials peg mounts. I also need a Trials brake pedal instead of the long enduro pedal I have now.

    Now this is really vintage stuff. I bought a bunch of 1957 Indian (Royal Enfield) Hounds Arrow parts. This was origianlly a trials bike. Not a complete bike but more than one engine, transmission, frame, one wheel and quite a few other parts. Since I am missing way to much to buy the remaining stuff piece by piece I'm turning it into a Frankenbike I think - mating a new modern fork/wheel and trailing arm/rear wheel. I could still be talked out of it but not for long. Anyway, I would be happy to talk to anybody who needs or has parts for this bike or might be interested in a restore.

    About 3:30 into my video shot at Terrebone you can see Tom on his (what I think is your Enfield) trials bike?

    Nope, it's a 1949 Indian Arrow custom built into a vintage trialer - I'm the guy who built it for Tom :D

    Yep, I've got quite a few pictures and even more stories about hand-making missing, destroyed, or otherwise unobtainable parts. Unfortunately I'm traveling this week and only have a few pictures on my phone, so you'll have to wait until I get back home to Bend for more. Here's what I have available now:
