Those are the 2012 Team New Mexico jerseys worn by our national riders. We all had one, so we dressed for success.

Afraid not. The well-dressed man came in 4th on Saturday and 3rd on Sunday. Not a bad showing for a very large man on a very small TY.

I do believe however, that an inmate won the class that Moomoo rode, didn't he Bob?

Yep, another season of silliness is upon us. Yesterday the Team TY received a new rear tire, and some actual Trials gearing, replacing the Bonneville gearing we had been running -





Only one problem. The bigger sprocket put the chain into the oversize mystery shock -





How to fix this........Oh yeah! I'm a Redneck!





With the shock "shimmed" out of the way, chain clearance and buffoonery is gained!

Ride report and pics coming. I'll let you know how that oddball Vee Rubber rear tire works out.

And you will be in good company. We've had some guests ride our Team TY over the years.

NATC Expert Nathan Hassler -



And again, 2 years ago -





Some of you may recognize this guy...







And this guy. Pic taken in 2009, we owned the bike for about 2 weeks at this point -





TY80's rule!!

That`s our weekly riding area. Steep would be when our lower class riders change 2000ft in elevation on the loop!

Yeah, I just LOVE the "new" Photobucket.


Should be fixed now.

Ok guys and gals, I am rebuilding a 74 for my nephew and the shocks are seized. Does anyone have a good set of shocks lying around OR can tell me the specs, as in extended and compressed lengths and what rate the springs are.

Brewtus and a few others are out setting our coming event. Be back next week. Luckily I never messed with the shocks. Best thing you can do is gear down both sprockets. The Ty`s make the best power out of all the little bikes.

I am having b&j racing cut me some sprockets now, 12 and 54 is what they recommend. However the shocks are the real test, they are both seized at about 80% compressed and I have not been able to get them freed. I'm just thinking $200 for these might be a bit much.

Seems to me I went to a 10 cs maybe an 11, but they should cost you no more than 40 bucks for the pair. I built the main bike used in this thread because I had A big BOY!
I realize Bob fills in a void with the vintage bikes and his ITSA series has been great! Tried to meet him at the world round. Did not go so well.
