How can you lose at that price!

Nice bag that one... Looks like it needs a complete strip down and rebuild but there isn't much to strip down on a trials bike.

A good panel beater might be able to get to the dents, thats an art in itself.

Trials swingarm spindles can be a total SOB once they have corroded in their bushes etc. Dont beat the life out of it. I have found in the past the best way is to sacrifice the spindle by carefully drilling into the two ends just a little under the diameter of the spindle just past the mounts on the frame. You got to make sure you are drilling concentric with the spindle.

That usually allows you to break it free and work on getting the rest out on the bench. Does the spindle pass through the rear engine mount on these TY's?

Could this be the cheapest competitive trials bike in the UK? It'll be interesting to see how much it costs in total. Nice one.

Hi, looking good. On the note of cheap bikes. I got a 1988 Beta TR34 from someone for 20 quid just needs a tidying up and new suspension linkage bearings, bargain. Looking good though it will surely do the job,

If I was getting a dent out i would seal it completley and fit a tyre valve to the fuel cap, Purge it with CO'2 and pump in some pressure, Then slowly heat the dent, Bearing in mind its a fuel tank i wouldn't reccomend this method, but i would do it myself.

Looks like you got a bargain there, if the dent isn't too bad just fill it and paint..

Good luck
