Re: Tyre Pressure

Vary pressure according to conditions: 6psi front and 4 rear will work for slippery, and for rocks increase maybe 2psi. However for a beginner bike time is far more important than worrying about tyre pressures, and maybe some sort of online guide to help beginners with the basics would be very useful?

Re: Basket Cases

A good reason for having gear lever in a position which is difficult to reach with your foot on the rest, is its very easy to knock the lever with your foot, with the bike often ending up in neutral.

Re: Basket Cases

If you are satisfied with how it runs then no problem, but on small capacity motors the ability to rev out fully is often helpful.

Re: Basket Cases

This year there were a couple of Fantams (Fantic top end on Bantam crankcases) competing in the Scottish 2 Day "65" event. I would guess that without the costly modern frame, and required billet alloy parts, a clubman type Fantam could be built very cheaply.

Re: Honda TL 250 Trials Rebuild

The Fraser pictured was fitted with the XL250 trail bike motor as standard, and had a short chain driving a sprocket on the swinging arm pivot, from which drive to the rear wheel was taken. All in all the Fraser bikes were not that great and seem to be made out of very poor ERW tube, which was braze...

Re: Basket Cases

Looks a very good job for that money, and the only thing that could be improved upon is the very long front pipe to silencer connecting tube, which will tend to stop the bike revving out fully and will reduce top end power a bit.

Re: How to build a pre65

Why not have a look a existing Chinese trail bikes, and see if conversion to trial spec would be possible? If so get a bike done, and send it back to China and get them to copy it exactly.

Re: How to build a pre65

In terms of cost I hear that one of the least expensive frames for a Bantam motor is £900. This is nothing like anything P65, and certainly not a "replica" of anything made by BSA. Cant really see why exactly there is any sort of objection to using something from a TS bike, which costs a l...
