  1. Bultaco best for spares and reliability, Ossa arguably the best Spanish trials bike but spares getting hard to come by, Montesa poor spares availability and a bit of a Marmite bike you either love them or hate them. Me if i had to choose Spanish then i'd buy an Ossa but given a free choice then it would be a TY 250 or even better a Majesty.
  2. Jim Pickering used to sell the Gas Gas blade fitted to a modified knuckle in both sizes. I'm sure the new owners will be able to supply you. Excellent product.
  3. Mine is in a sorry state, tyre rubbing worn hole plus bracket cracked and repaired by a blind pigeon, so are after market replacements available and if so are they any good?
  4. Thanks for that Bilko but they've sold out. Cheers
  5. Actually its a 2008 but i'll check it out. Cheers.
  6. Sorry should have said. Its a 08 270
  7. Probably doesnt matter with racing 2 strokes as the clearence is so big. When new the clearence on a race bike is when we would get it replated on a trials bike.
  8. Where did you get your piston from ?
  9. I'm after a Rev 3 rear mudguard and so far have drawn a blank. Does anyone know if the rear guard off an Evo will fit or if there is anyone making after market plastics for the Rev 3 Cheers
  10. Just had a look at their website. Thank you. Look like a good possibility. Will check them out this summer. Cheers
  11. Having recently moved i am in the sad predicament of living in an area bereft of ClassicTrials clubs and venues. Yes i know i should have thought about that earlier but in my own defense all my life i have NEVER had to travel more than 40 mins to an event every weekend and because there is so much incredible terrain around here, close to Aberystwith, i just stupidly assumed there would be loads of trials taking advantage of it. So it's about a 2 and a half hour drive each way to my nearest Classic club so i find myself having to consider riding at a "modern" club and dont fancy trashing my Classic bikes. I have wondered about buying a modern bike, very limited budget, and have narrowed it down to either a Montesa 315R or a Beta 250 / 270 Rev 3. Would these be a good choice for the "easiest" route ? Would there be a better option on a very limited budget ? I'd still like to ride but at the moment it's looking to be not very often using the Classic bikes.
  12. One other thing. Leading axle forks on a cub would be a no no for Scotland btw. They dont even allow 4 bolts only 2 on Triumph fork legs.
