    I didn't think this qualified for its own thread, but it's pretty cool. Just watching American Pickers & they had a segment on trials.

    6/3/19, Season 20 Episode 11 if that helps with your search. While not entirely correct on trials, it's always cool to see even a little something on the toob regarding our little corner of the world.

    Would be cool but I already have 4 bikes in the garage... so not on the possible list at the moment.

    couldn't find it in the S20 E11 but remember seeing them find an old trials bike - I think it may have been American made or something obscure like that.

    Speaking of TY250s, I finally messaged this guy who has had this 250 mono listed since Feb. 26th. He's apparently really firm on $1500... Now I see why it's still listed. No airbox and the rear tire looks like a saw blade. Grips and levers are toast, but that isn't surprising.

    1984 TY250 for $1500

    Yeah, looks like you'll hit it with your leg every time you attempt to pop the front wheel up a little bit. Seems real practical for trials. It's also a good thing we don't have much mud or water to ride through here. :raindance

    I was hoping after 2 months he would be in a more flexible mood.

    It`s missing the factory skid plate. The mounting bolts can get screwed up and these non trials riders remove them and throw them in the corner.

    And at 999,969 miles, it's probably due for a ring job. :augie

    At least the 250 can be bored and parts available. The 350 was a chrome bore and no pistons for decades.
