I normally combine the Vintage class with the Novice class because I don't get enough riders for a seperate class. If I think I've got enough vintage bikes coming I'll run a seperate class.

Look what I just scored for my 41st birthday, my father in law found it and gave it to me...nicest thing ever!!!





Looks like most everything is there, I think I'll go ride the Rubicon with it and a run at loop 6 in Foresthill...swore I'd never go back without a trials bike and now I have one.


Totally stoked!!!

Happy Birthday! Nice present indeed.

I'll be 41 Monday. Today I picked up TY350 for my brother. It's the same thing. Except different.

Nice find. It's great to know the history of an older bike like that and have a connect to it's past.
It should make for a very competitive twinshock class trials bike!

Yah, it started 1st kick too! Cousin said "I think you'll need to clean carb, I havent rode it for a while..."

1st order of business is to make the footpegs wider . Geez, they are so thin I think I broke a bone in my foot, lol (Naw just strained one). I cant believe we rode with such skinny footpegs in the 80's, dang.

Vintage Trials? Yea, we do that.

125 Sprite, 175 Greeves Pathfinder, 125 Saracen, TY 175, TY 250. There is also a 125 Dalesman not together yet.

And the latest, just picked this up last week. 125 Penton Trials.

I have owned this bike before and rode it a lot. In 2001 I won an AHRMA championship on it riding the 2 line and also made the cover of Vintage Views. Then like a dummy I sold it to finance the next putter. Getting it back was like stepping into a time machine. All these years it had been on display in an office and it is exactly like I sold it.

About a year ago, I bought back a R 100 GS that I had sold to a close friend. I was SO happy to get her back. I'll never make that mistake again. Your two sons will have to fight over it, when I'm dead.

That is such a cooooool looking bike.
