  1. Hi Guy's. Check out the Otter site, "2017 News page", for details of a TLR frame. Regards Charlie.
  2. Hi Guy's Hi TI, Mail me on my web site for a link to someone who can help. Regards Charlie.
  3. Hi Guy's. Just read it, and it is machines over 125,cc.NEW. I have just had this problem with an imported machine, that I need on the road for Charity work. I think we will be OK with older machines for a while but they may shut the door on us later, Who knows what will happen when we leave the EU? I bet there will be rules put into place to stop Classic bikes later, being used on the road? That is the way the governing bodies are going. Anything to stop our sport on a Sunday morning when the maJority need to get out on their cycles and block the highway's, and country lanes of Britain. And these and Horses go Free!! Two Strokes contaminate the air we breath,you know. Hi Andrew Morpeth. If you look at my web site you would know that I work with both cycles and Horses, Big Time. What I am saying is that you have to be flavour of the month in this World and Trials bikes are for some reason not that flavour, and our heritage has been forgotten, and even been given up by the body that runs the sport AC-U , so we stand little chance of being seen as a special case has far as regulations are concerned. If ABS come into play this would mean only New Trial bikes 2018, would be fit for the road regulations, if abs is fitted to them? Regards Charlie.
  4. Hi Guy's. Hi Andy , I have a link that may give you the answers if you mail me on the "Otter" site. Regards Charlie.

  6. Hi Guy's. Look it just proves that the term PRE65 referred to the type of section more than the machine, as the Photo of Deryk on his Greeves proves, Banana forks were I think 1967? Clean bike though Deryk just like all the machines you owned and rebuilt for discerning owners. Forget the ACU series we knew they did not want it to work. Just stick with the clubs that will put on an Olde Time road trial with Olde type sections, and we will get the plot back. But trials still just need to be for the fun of competing whatever you are riding, or forget it, and enjoy wandering around Motorcycle museums. Regards Charlie..
  7. Hi Guy's Triumph Boni and Stieb sidecar, Whats the van in the background? Looks like a Story to me! I like stories about bikes from the past, History in he making. Never to be lost. Regards Charlie.
  8. Hi Guy's. Hi Paul, Why? Stop it , your a lovely Guy. So why cause so much trouble. It is so much easier to get on with people. By the way "Bessie" sends her love, and people are interested in parts of her again, that you created, so you see, you are liked in "Parts" Regards Charlie.
  9. Hi Guy's. The CCM is "British" and it is collectable. to someone that collects machines to safeguard the history of such. If they had been that good a tool there would have already been a spate of copies built by the commercial sector. But unless someone is prepared to construct a New copy engine, in years to come that engine will be worth the asking price? Have you tried buying a BSA GB B40 engine and parts lately? And these were said to be not a good choice of BSA engines for trials in the first place. This must make the "BSA C15 G" engine worth its weight in Gold. Anyway the good thing is, my collection of BSA "Otter's" have just gone up in value over night, and I am still making them,and now with the correct frame as-well. Regards Charlie.
  10. Hi Guy's. Hi Dave Mick Dickinson is the guy that patterned and casts the barrels. I have links to him on my website, if you look. just type in the bikes named under my name on the left and you will find it. Hope this helps, Regards Charlie.
  11. Hi Guy's. Hi Deryk, Don't forget my connection to the Bultaco story. You can read it all on my website. Rickman Bros became distributors in late 1964 guy's. Regards Charlie.
  12. Hi,Guys, Hi Jc2, Yes that's about right, other little bits, but that is the story, Pity they were not made for sale. As I say More about the bikes on my web site shortly. Regards Charlie.
  13. Yes Charlie,

    'Tis Rob himself, I believe tring out Peter Edmundson's demo model.

    Cheers

  14. Hi Guy's. I have done my history. And the Six trials bikes built, were built in the Hodaka factory, and not for sale to the general public. A page on my web site shortly should explain the story. Deryk, Is the person sat on the bike the Late Rob Fitton? (road racer)? Regards Charlie~Oo>
  15. Hi Guy's. Hi Deryk. Look on the USA trials page, I have got you the page back up, that I could remember reading years ago. This is filled with posts by guy's that used to work at "Hodaka." "Malcolm Smith Page". They seem to have built the trials bikes in the factory, copying the Sarascen frame, now there is a company that lost out big time trying to get into the USA market. Regards Charlie.
