Good to see that little Moto G, interesting bike.
Here's a ripper of a 400cc Triumph twin, these bikes were surprisingly docile and smooth to ride especially the 350's, this ones been increased to 400cc, they had a lot of weight low down, come on Bill lets see that one of yours in action.

Here's a real fancy heavyweight in the form of a 500cc Velocette pictured at the 2013 Manx classic trial, it did really well in the actual event, definitely a rareity in the heavyweight ranks.

I should have started off with this one, its the box of bits which was my brothers creation in the 60's and I bought it out to Australia in the 80's, its a BSA 350cc Gold Star.
Its progressed somewhat from this and my aim is to get it ready so that I can take it to Conondale this year, mind you that was my aim for last year as well !!!!!
Can anyone spot the biggest problem I have faced to rebuild this bike

No forks? No gearbox? No magneto? No fuel tank? Can't decide which seat to use?
Ah I remember now wasn't there a problem finding the right wheel rim to suit the hub?

Nice try Jon, by the way it seems a long time since I met you at the Sam Cooper trial.
OK guys, you need a clue, what is it about the engine that is the problem ??

Too tall for the frame maybe? Hard to see from that angle
