    2nd hand Trials bikes?

    Anyone got any unwanted early modern trials bikes taking up space in the garage?

    I was thinking of getting one if I could find one in my price range. Something like a mid 90's Beta Techno or whatever for $1500 or a little over.

    Am I dreaming?

    Hens teeth & rocking horse $#!t come to mind. I'm looking too, old twin shockers are going for silly money & newer bikes seem to hold their value exceedingly well. I was advised to make my self known to the local trials club, a lot of riders are more mature & not trade me savvy. Their was a K roo advertised for that sort of money a wee while ago.

    You could always ring up John Lawton at Kapiti Motorcycles Ltd, Beta importer, 04 2970240 he might know of a bike floating around.
    Otherwise come along to the next Ixion club trial also BSA shield event. 11th November, Maungakotukutuku Valley Road 10-3:30'ish. Make yourself known and something might come about it.

    From what I have seen in the club and in the trials community in general bikes sell in the lower value $2000-3500 real quick.

    Not the easiest spot to get collected from either.

    There's also some debate about whether it is as it's advertised. I've never head of JCM and would prefer something a little more known, and presumably supported.

    You would be best to ask your local club about what types to avoid. They will know alot more about maintence and parts in the area.
    The average KB wont have riden one or know alot. It would be a very limited number who own one.

    Idd love to have one but havent ever riden one.

    Trials is a funny thing. A mate bought an 80's Fantic, Steve Colley rep, air cooled mono shock. He can source just about everything including new plastics from the UK, off a guy with a flat cap & a whippet. It's easier to get parts for than my Lanza. Go figure.

    Actually a mate might want to sell my old Beta TR34 (ish) aircooled but single shock disc brake. He's pretty local to you.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Thanks Dave. I've just picked up a Beta Techno today.

    If he does want to sell it it sounds like there's other people looking for them.
