Trials bike
« on: February 01, 2018, 09:43:32 AM »
I'd like to pick up an older (15-30 years) trials bike for the next addition to the stable. Wanting to spend around 1K but flexible and understand the defects that are associated with that price point.

If you or someone you know has one that can use a little love, please let me know.

Should we make it a 4th bike?  ;)

I've always been a big fan of Rouhani Powersports! Didn't know you had a trials scoot in the stable?

We have recently acquired a Yamaha TY80 in boxes.

That's a little more vintage than I had in mind... Thanks though!

Good luck with sale and make sure to post it to North Alabama Vintage Motorcycle Club. RenchinRider probably knows a few folks that would love to have that!

Probably a little smaller than Ben had in mind too.

Be a great bike for a youngster to learn to ride on however.

Someone with kids should jump on this.
