section swept Posted March 22, 2018 Report Share Posted March 22, 2018 Bought myself a project Trials bike to keep me off the streets. This will be my third and I’m not sure whether to keep it or sell it as the price of older bikes is increasing. Not that I want to profiteer or anything but if the value keeps going up I would hate to ‘get it dirty’ so to speak. There must be quite a few people here that like to rebuild, restore their favourite competition bikes. Just like when you ride trials or whatever your sport is, the rebuilder, restorer is out in all weathers, ....in the shed, damp and cold huddled round a heater, pondering ? a miriad of problems, chrome or powder coat, paint as original. Should I mod it any, leave the footrests where the manufacturer put them, shall I slice the frame and get some steeper steering or should I just fit longer rear dampers? That’s an hour gone by and not even done the washing up or hoovering as instructed by the one that must be obeyed....ooh er! ? NB Please feel free to continue and add content as you see fit, it’ll be interesting to see others take on their project bike and in general with the rise in value of older bikes that could be bought for literal pennies not too far back in time.? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
