I have modern, but lost my riding spot
. I think we can hook you up with lots of riding options.....I am sure Bucho would be happy to show your Gas Gas some love since you have turned it into a place to hang your coats.
Yes, I'd be happy to "store it" for you.

Over on ADV, there is a 1974 Yamaha TY250 trials bike for sale. Been up for a while. Guy dropped price to $1000. In PA, not too far from most of us.

That is a fair price for one that runs...now to have one fully modified then you will need to dig much deeper in your pockets. Friend of mine knows the seller, they purchased with intent to restore and ride. Most parts for those old Yamaha can be had from Speed and Sport in Calli.

This will be the "must have" electric trials bike. Gas Gas (Torrot) should also have some good offerings. I can see the place just not the demand, that said world trials has made a "E" class for a couple events

On a related note:

Nice! Glad to see they are getting some press.

I know there are better/higher quality offerings but for the MUCH lower price point the OSET looks really good to me.

The other contender in the same price area is the Sur Ron Electric cycle. Either one looks like it would a TON of fun for play/practice and lower level trials. I'll never be Tony Bou so an OSET would be fine for me.

Got a bike out in the snow for the first time on Sun. Was a hoot.
Hmm, looks like I can't post a pic.

Had a good snow ride on Sunday. I really like the trials bike. Fun. I started tearing into it, cuz it's used. Some things I found-
Extra plug hanging out by rear linkage, no other half spotted.
Exhaust welds broken clean through..how do you fix that? New exhaust?
See the clear fuel line..
There was a filter there...automotive type, kinda fat, clear plastic with paper element. I ditched it. Ends of lines were split anyway.

That's it for now.ImageImageImage
