Winter got you climbing the walls ??
Then this is the bike to do it properly with.

Beautiful '78 SherpaT, $1295.
If you ever wanted to ride Trials, it would be hard to make a better choice (among vintage Trials bikes).
I've put in many hours doing incredible things on one of these......


SWEET - wish I could afford it.

WOW! I'd like to get a hold of that myself but I promised Beth that I've got enough going on for the foreseeable future. I told her I wouldn't by any more motorcycles until all the one that I currently have were in running/usable condition (the airplane doesn't count).

Tell her how most people never get hurt riding trials - she might relent in that case.........

Well, I wasn't always old, you know.
I actually was a pretty good trials rider in my time........Malcolm Smith was one of my heroes.

I love watching the trials videos on the net. Those guys can do amazing things with todays modern machines especially..

I didn't mean anything by that Bill. I never heard you mention trials riding in all the years we've spoken via the net.. Any good old pictures of you "rock hopping"??? Now that'd be cool to see..

Sorry GB - throughout my life, the Guy With the Camera was always me.
As a result, any photos of me are very rare, I was always taking pictures of others, pretty much made a point of staying on the backside of the camera.
I may have an old road race photo somewhere, but haven't seen it in decades.
No Trials photos.

You're right - Trials riders are the virtuosos of motorcycle riders......
The stuff they do in the modern "Stadium Trials" is astounding - those guys are good, real good...
