  1. Hi Guys 

    I have no shed at the moment. I have Honda TL125/Kawasaki F11 project.

    i have parked the bikes for winter in my friend half open storage. they started to rust badly. 

    how to save/protect chrome forks leg/wheels   your ideas and thoughts are welcome

    My ideas 

    > Use some sort of temporary paint may be and that can be removed later , when i re-commission the bike ??

    > Grease ?

    > WD40 ? 

    what else can be done. your ideas and thoughts ?



  2. @Scifi 

    I agreed . i have seen the some early videos . there is no doubt the Britain is the pioneers  of this sport. 

    vintage bikes all have bit of character, which i fell in love with.  we are loosing that. i guess. in few years time we will be hopping on similar looking electric bikes only .. no sound no joy for me .. sorry thats my own opinion


  3. Hi Guys 

    Always interested to know more about older British Trials/Scrambler/Motorcross dedicated Manufacturers ?

    i know below only







    what else you can think of .. all manufacturers are listed on below .. not sure who else was building them


    Thanks and Regards

  5. Hi section swept 

    Perfect Bultaco M80 Sherpa , i love them

    Any bike actually. which is proper trials bike  , yes you are right , these are DR200 suzuki type forks. already did parts swap and got this , want to use them if possible

    i think my forks long enough might not be suitable for standing while driving .. i will do my post my forks measurement as well 


    Thanks a lot 




  6. Thanks @section swept @ourian @potto @2stroke4stroke @faussy

    you guys are spot on .. it seems like suzuki DR200 etc , i got them for some part exchange. i would like to use them if possible. i have another drum brake wheel as well 

    if i want to use it on bantam . i would like to lower them a bit. i think they still very high for trials bike. 

    thanks again for your quick help

    A Beta looks like a Gasgas looks like a TRS? To an unpractised eye, that's true. But going back to the old bikes, a Triumph twin looks like a BSA twin looks like a Norton twin. And a Francis-Barnett looks like a James looks like a BSA Bantam. If you're an enthusiast for a particular type of bike, the differences are obvious. If you're not, they're not.

    i might be more biased towards older bikes. but i still believe olders bikes were different from ground up ( frame, engine , sounds ) were distinctive  , FB and james shared Villiers engine

    i agree everyone have its own taste and liking , and i respect that.

    Come back in what form?? The old twin shock bikes still have a good turnout at events and even special series with just twin shock. But new twin shock production bikes will never be seen unless you build one. Or buy a Harley twin shock bikes are all the technology they can handle

    I mean to say if they will be production again. i agree the Twinshock have good turnout , but their prices are increasing rapidly and becoming collectible items. 

  9. Hi 

    Will twinhocks bikes will come back ?. I love the older british bikes since childhood

    i can see lot of British manufactures are making the bikes again ( Triumph, Norton Brough Superior etc ) , 

    i like the newer models .. but they are missing the character , most of them look the same. Sorry my opinion only.
