The majority of twin shocks and pre65's probably fall into this category, New heard of one being checked. If you want to cover your posterior get it mot'ed, can be done on frame number if no v5.

I confirm that the machine(s) as described below which I shall participate on shall be suitable and proper for the purpose. I confirm that I am eligible to compete on the machines for which I have entered.

From entry form declaration that we all read🤣 and sign at each trial.

Basically onus is on you for the machine to be safe - the club may check that it complies with the trials regs  -ie not on knobblies etc but from a safety point of view its a self certification. If there is something glaringly obviously dangerous then the C of C can exclude you/ask you to stop riding etc

Not sure if I'm typing in invisible ink ? From a safety point of view get an mot. 

J Bliss creations can be seen as un-sporting if entered against pre 65 / twin shocks. Excluded on these grounds ?

What about using an EM electric motor in, say, an old 125 Bantam twinshock frame?  Eligible for pre 65?  Twinshock?

If you use a pre-65 electric motor instead of a pre-65 petrol motor it would be hard to argue against riding in pre-65 class but you didn't ask that.

If you could hide a modern EM electric motor inside a pre-65 petrol motor and hide the cells inside a pre-65 fuel tank, then it would meet the eligibility criteria for pre-65 where I live.

A bit like using a Suzuki piston and a fantic clutch and cylinder head on  bantam ..... 😃

BSA did build an electric trials bike, there's a picture of it with Jeff Smith riding :thumbup: 

(See: Don Morley’s BSA singles book)

No, but It had a rather large Lucas lead acid battery😧

I'm sure there could be a modern Pre65 version? :rotfl:
