This is a bike that Roger (MAVT guru) sorted out this winter. Engine nice and fresh, tank lined, fresh rubber, installed electronic ignition, all cables, modern bars and controls. Not a show queen but a regular weekend rider.
Owner was away from trials since the 70's so he purchased what he remembered, then he took a new bike for a spin. Well that is why this is back on the market...he will be picking up a 2014 Sherco next week.
Price listed is asking price, he is motivated to sell...make offer.

A friend of mine still has a (1969?) triumph bobber/chopper thing. I rode it once. He had trouble with the right side foot shift so converted it to a right side tank shifter. It was pretty much a rolling death trap. Maybe it has colored my opinion of right side shifting.

It's trials, you don't do a whole lot of shifting. Now the left side brake, that could take a little time to adjust to...

Cool, nothing like a new powerband to liven up an old bike. I like the antiqued finish too.
