Description CLASSIC Pre 65 TRIALS TRAIL BIKE FOR GERIATRICS

CLASSIC LONG DISTANCE TRIALS/TRAIL BIKE FOR GERIATRICS
This is a bike I built for use in Sammy Miller type Classic trails
on road courses.
I reasoned that in such an event I could expect to have to
find neutral and kickstart probably 40 or 50 times, sometimes in precarious
positions.
 By comparison,
pulling in the clutch lever and pressing a button saved considerable energy,
and this was becoming important with advancing age.
This bike was the result, the second electric start 250
Villiers powered trials bike I have built.
The first was a Greeves which I still have and I don’t plan
to part with it, but this one is lighter and more competitive. It weighs around
200lbs and the electrics add 20lbs.
The first start of the day may need gentle help from the
kickstart if it is cold but afterwards it will start on the button as it
charges up between sections.
I will  probably have
to convert it to a conventional kickstarter to sell it but I thought I would
offer it ‘as seen’ in case anyone else fancies 
a geriatrics trials bike to extend their riding life.
Otherwise it is as you see it, fairly conventional, with MP
forks and a wide ratio gearbox.
It is registered and on SORN, and complies with MOT and Pre
70 regulations.
