Hughie Posted November 19, 2022 Report Share Posted November 19, 2022 I’m looking a buying a classic trials bike of some description. Unfortunately, when it comes to motorbikes, I love everything! I’ve been riding trials for about a year on modern bikes and have become fairly addicted so I’m flogging my classic Harley as it now languishes in the corner and want to sample some classic trials bikes. So I’m just wondering if there are any particular brands or bikes out there to avoid due to inherent or unfixable issues, I guess I’ll be looking at SWM’s, Fantics, TY’s and the like from the early 80’s. Love the style of SWM’s but know nothing about them otherwise. No idea what the difference is between front kick and rear kick Fantics (200 I think?). Like the look of Bultaco’s but I rode a mid 70’s Sherpa and didn’t take to it at all, rattly old bag of bones I thought. Might just have been that particular bike! Really like the look of the TLR Hondas but again, are they imports that are hard to get parts for? So just trying to find info generally on the older bikes and what might work best and what to avoid. If anyone could point me in the right direction I’d be grateful, thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
