Re: How to build a pre65

Good idea, but not sure that info relating to a 1980s twin-shock bike, would help the Chinese much with building a P65? It looks like there is atleast 50 motorcycle factories in china, im sure few could build a copy of a TY or TLR, and sell quite a few thousand units around the globe, probably more...

Have you got a link so I can see these p65 bikes?
Wouldn't mind building one myself for when Geoff Lewis comes back to town.

Re: How to build a pre65

Steve and Roger have I think gone as far with Cubs as they can without billet crankcases etc etc, and thats the reason for them building the Villiers powered twin-shocks. Very impressive, and things like the Gas Gas wheels converted to drum brakes seem to me a great idea.

The fact that these riders are regular winners at the local club events where they ride the P65 class, doesnt seem to worry those running these ...

Re: How to build a pre65

Looks like the type of bike anyone with a lathe, CNC mill, and a TIG welder in their workshop would be able to knock up over a couple of months.

Re: picking a bike

125 or 200 is the bike 95% of riders new (or returned after long lay off!) to the sport will find easiest to ride, and also provide the best results.
