    Depending on what you want to do, there is a thriving aftermarket (mostly in UK) for pre-65 trials bike stuff. Frames, engine mounts, body work, you name it. If you are looking for a competitive classic trials mount you can find most eveything you need. If you are just looking to play around then there are cheaper options of course!

    Any one interested in buying, selling, trading, please see my post in the Trials classified.

    Sorry I don't know how to do the clever little link thing.

    After a few sealing issues my new tubeless rear wheel conversion was tested today... along with my recently dislocated knee!! Both performed well..

    Those Cub's are great! I've wanted to build one of those forever, but just never seem to get around to it. Thanks for posting the pics.

    Thanks for sharing. Love seeing classic bikes! Will get one at some point... just not sure when, most likely after I get my 74 Supper Beetle project done. :rofl

    and the bike that started it, My dad bought it for my brothers and they rode it so much that it went through 3 top end builds and finally got left behind in disrepair for me to come along and restore.
