But you gotta admit, the cool factor of those bikes is SO much higher than a Reflex.
Lot of people really think those other Honda's are the bikes to have, but I would suggest trying the Bob Ginder TLR if you get the chance, then see if you still think the RTL/TLM/Seeley you tried are better.

I ever make it to the east, I'll give it a shot.

What nifty Trials machines do you have in your stable?

Hmmm, okay I'll rephrase the question.


What Trials bikes do you own? Nifty or not.

While we wait. I think the concept of fun riding a cheap, less competitive, unmodified bike is great. A couple of years ago I was racing at an AHRMA National in WA. A guy showed up with a step through 90. He had a great time. Last year a couple of guys showed up with SL 350's. They seemed to have more fun than the serious, high dollar, racers. Keep it up.

Building 200 Professional Fantic, 305 long stroke TL, and a TLR200 at the moment, and also have a TY270 Trick-Shock, which was previously used in the British TS championship.

The early works Honda's based on the TL250 motors, were 305cc, and these are relatively easy to build using an XL350 crank and overbored TL250 cylinder.

Now if I would have kept my new `77 XL350 I`d have had the parts. As it was I rebuilt that engine several times in it`s 75,000 mile life. My last TL 250 had a Powroll oversize sleeve to a 300. Things you sell in the first year of marriage to make life happy. Like everyone else there are many a bike I wished I kept!

Damn cool, even if I have no desire to do it.

Since you are relatively new here, this is how you post pics here on ADV-

I'd love to see pics of your TY and Fantic. Your stroker build should have some pretty cool pics also!!
