Justyn Norek and son take a stroll around the 2019 Scottish two day trial Paddock..

We took it for granted that the Scottish two day trial would continue year after year, with the controversy that it sometime caused...

 But then BANG, the world changed over night, and now we are pining about the things we took for granted...

I am sure somehow there will be another trial? But it wont be the same for years if ever!

So lets just look back at some of the bikes in that paddock when life was  how we knew it...in 2019...

 

 

 

04/11/2020...

 

 

Here is a good one to start with. A Tribsa with Triumph Tigress scooter engine fitted. Number 200.

Update: from John Dickinson...

The Tribsa with Tigress engine. Was ridden by former factory Italjet and Comerfords Bultaco rider Chris Myers from Cumbria. Built by his cousin Jonty and is a 'Mark 2' version, the original sporting a Tigress engine in Cotton frame.

~Oo> Thanks John...

 

 

 

A well built Triumph Twin Number ??

 

 

One of many smart Ariels... Number ??

 

 

A second Ariel Number?..

 

 

And the other of two... 

Numbers please...Think one is "Old Bings"

Update: from John Dickinson...

The two Ariel's are very special and completely self-built (including frames, tanks, hubs, yokes etc and had new cylinder heads cast) by Edward Dobson, his son Daniel and Andy Bingley, and ridden by Edward and Bing.

~Oo> Thanks John...

Number 16...

 

 

The Dave Wood, now  Drayton framed 337 long-stroke Pete Kirby engined BSA...

Dave's bike is now for sale.... Here are the details...

 

Engine
Built by Pete Kirby from NOS bottom end parts it is a long stroke C15 giving just under 340cc. It uses a slipper type piston of 69mm which enables the engine height to remain the same as a standard C15 with the longer stroke which is 90mm. The engine has just been rebored with a new piston. It has an alloy barrel and the head is standard C15 with 22mm intake, not big valve, Standard road type camshaft. Kickstart and gear shaft are both splined, kickstart is KDX Kawasaki. Gearbox has trials ratios and has a higher top gear for road use. The clutch is Pete Kirby's belt drive diaphragm clutch so oil free and pretty much fit and forget. A new belt has just been fitted, see photo. Electrexworld ignition. Carb is Amal 22mm Premier light body. Both carb and ignition are virtually new. The engine is smooth and extremely torquey and will pull 3rd gear up a bank with a no run up standing start. Although roughly the same capacity as a B40 it has more torque and will pick up revs quicker. If you want it to, it will go from idle onto the back wheel in 3rd no problem
Frame
Drayton frame so there is little to say there as their handling, reputation and popularity are well known. Wheels are Bantam hubs that were built into new Excel tubed rims about 4 years ago with new stainless spokes. Forks are MP/Ceriani with Betor internals and work very well. New Betor shocks. Billet parallel yokes. The tank is a modified Ossa tank. Nothing on the frame was altered to fit this so a Drayton tank and seat could be fitted, I just preferred the look of the Ossa tank.
The long exhaust is fitted with a Terry Weedy silencer as it keeps it fairly quiet. There is a shorter exhaust to come with it which has a modified Weedy silencer that fits behind the frame tube, see last picture. There is also another header pipe. 
Registered on a B plate so free tax and no MOT required
The bike needs nothing now, it is ready to ride, has a great torquey engine with a fine handling chassis and has the right parts for Scottish Pre65 if that event is of interest. It cost a lot to put this bike together, particularly the engine which was from virtually all NOS parts. Obviously the bike has been used so there are knocks and scrapes, it's not a garage or facebook queen, it's a trials bike and that's what it was built and used for
Willing to listen to offers. Any questions ask on ebay or 07931 669549

 Can you remember, a few years back when there was a glut of these frames all pretending to be a MAR James...they were in-fact copies of the Francis Barnett Model 85, that were fitted with that Italian designed AMC 249cc engine that was a disaster from the offset as it was designed down to a price, and not to perform,or in many cases, even run...
