  1. Great slo-mo of Graham Jarvis double blipping here. Yes it's an enduro bike but all his techniques come from trials.
  2. Fantastic snapshot of a bygone age, thanks for uploading these
  3. Now here if anyone's looking for it http://www.twinshock.org.uk/category/bike-projects/honda-tl125-s-1978/
  4. Scorpa 125 4 stroke has to be the softest ever starter, you can start them using your hand. Not to everyone's taste of course and been a while since they were available, the last ones did have electric start though.
  5. Something like these? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-Pair-28mm-35mm-Black-Motorcycle-Headlight-Bracket-Fork-Mount-Universal/302096787604?epid=2165697583&hash=item46565f2894:g:17oAAOSw8gVX9KjX You might need a 6v bulb, sorry but I've no idea about TY electrics
  6. Lots of stuff like this on ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Universal-Chrome-5-Round-Motorcycle-Headlight-Side-Mounted-Headlamp-Unit/200282945279?hash=item2ea1cb36ff:g:SdgAAOSwDwtUpU3O
  7. If a nipple is tight, grip the spoke close to it with a set of mole grips then heat the nipple up before working it back and forth with WD40 to free it up. Don't try to free them without gripping them, it will end in tears... I've found the rear wheel ones are usually ok as they benefit from any lube thrown off the chain (I use old gear oil). It's the front ones that I've normally found to be seized.
  8. Used to be one not long after the Scott called the Little Bear Trial run by Seaton Delaval at Alwinton, Northumberland. Not sure they're running it as a T & O trial these days though.

  10. What section is that? Looks like it might be Lower Mamore.
  11. Agree there's not as much buzz in the forums as when Ishy, Perce, Gizza5, Highland Lassie, OvertheHill and others were regularly posting, it was always interesting getting the inside line from HL when she was the Secretary of the trial, at the same time as OtH was CoC. Think we would all agree that the weather has a major part to play in spectator numbers. I've seen Lagnaha 4 deep and the car park full as it was on Monday there, also not so many when the wind was driving the rain in our faces on a bleak grey day a few years back. Thought the Pre-65 was quite a bit down on numbers this year though, may have been the Guy Martin effect bumping the numbers up last year though...
  12. Aye, it was a scunner having to come back down yesterday, especially given the blazing forecast for the rest of the week. Re Ross Noble, even a workmate who wouldn't know one end of a bike from the other asked if that was the event he was riding when I mentioned the trial.

  14. We used to call it "professional parking" (┬ęChewy) when observing at the Scottish. Not unusual to see one of the contenders at it, esp. after a bit of section gardening as previously mentioned.
  15. Seem to remember a few years ago Paul Nixon (ebay paulccm) having half a dozen made by Omega pistons, some just a hair bigger than the originals to allow for bore wear. The OE Honda ones are apparently as scarce as hen's teeth. Looks like he's got a used one with a barrel but willing to split just now...don't expect it to be cheap!!! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-tlr250-Rtl250-Tlr200-70mm-Barrel-And-Genuine-Piston-Trials-Twinshock-Pre65-/132136993599?hash=item1ec3fa833f:g:lX0AAOSwSlBY1UIK
