Now that's a gusset!

Seems to be the bike Beamish entered in the SSDT in '76

Re: Basket Cases

That must be the only Greeves in Oz trials Shane. Here's a few of their Pathfinder. They tried to make one bike for Trials and Enduro with different seats, different footpeg and brake location, and a 1" longer swingarm for the Enduro. Greeves Pathfinder M59.jpg Show pic from the model's release...

Re: Basket Cases

Apparently there's some interest in seeing more Greeves. Here's Don Smith's highly modified bike for the '62 SSDT, said to have "nearly 30lb" pared off it, bringing it to 210lb Greeves1962_Don_Scottish.jpg Then what must be the ugliest trials bike ever produced, the TGS Anglian of 65/66 wi...

Yes, well spotted Rod. I thought much the same of the pic.

Re: TS185 trials bike

Thanks Brent, I'll keep that in mind about the 250 CDI. I think the flywheels are the same. The one on TC site doesn't appear to have much modified apart from seat, front guard and pegs slightly raised and rearset. And RM tank. Steering geometry looks standard trailbike. Seems to me the key things f...

Re: Steer Clear - understanding steering for twinshocks

I was going to post this, commenting on the steering geometry of a modified RL, in another thread but it's more appropriate resurrecting this thread. RL modified, 52in w'base.jpg I have no desire to cast aspersions on the workmanship of the fabricator (who does excellent work), and there's much to b...

Re: TS185 trials bike

David, you either have a good memory or been reading my mind lately. I have indeed been seriously considering an RL185/200 project but based on the earlier TS185A engine in a TS or TM 125 frame (I have both; the TM has steeper rake) as a bit of a fun to see if I can make it steer and handle appropri...

Re: Basket Cases

Now before someone screams "Enough Greeves" (point taken)... But have to admit, this one's nice looking too, tho I never thought much of them back in the day The seat always looked very strange, like an afterthought on this model For me the Greeves always look better with telescopics, but ...

Re: Basket Cases

Here's another one to drool over, perhaps even nicer.
