    I was fascinated by the pressed out rear sub frame ... just didn't look like it had much side to side rigidity. But nice to see something different.

    My M115 Trials Alpina. It's seen a lot of AHRMA trials back in the day. I haven't competed on it since '07 and hadn't ridden it since I got divorced in '09. Late last fall I drug it out of the garage, put in a new rear tube, and it started on the 3rd kick. :evil

    It's looking a little rough as it's last resto was in '97. I need to go over it again and freshen it up. I love this bike. I sold my modern Beta a year ago so this is my trials ride, period. It's a little heavy but will go anywhere.

    Any of these Honda two strokes still around? I remember a TLM260 at a few events back in the day but otherwise pretty rare, at least in North America.
    Just before the Honda-Montesa hookup happened I think.

    Very nice bikes, these Honda two strokes, rides better then any TLR in my personal opinion,
    (like a RTL with less strokes) but as you said rare and used bikes are expensive:

    You find them - sometimes - on display, here is one: http://www.subito.it/moto-e-scooter/trial-honda-tlm-260-roma-86477693.htm
