Exeter Trial 2014

Post  woodenhead on Tue Dec 17, 2013 8:14 pm

I was just looking at the MCC web site as I was thinking of entering the Lands End Trial on my James Cadet Comp when I noticed that an intrepid member of the FBOC was entered on his 2H engined Francis Barnett.
I am sure you will all join me in wishing Ken Booth ( Kerabo) every success in his efforts.
I may even wander down to Popham and see them off and I know my cousins family will be at Windwhistle to see them through.

I join you in wishing Ken success this year, but unless his bike has had a major re-jig since last year I think you will find it has a 9E with a 250cc alloy barrel in it.
I supplied Ken with the major frame components and the donor bike was a Falcon 81 in trials trim he already had.
If anyone fancies making similar I have another rolling chassis with tank and seat etc which is a Trials model 76 .

I stand corrected John when I saw it was a 250 I know it was not an AMC engine so I just assumed it was the 2H.

trials engines

They did a 250cc trials bike from 1963 onwards with a Villiers engine, it was a 32A with a Parkinson alloy barrel and was called the model 92, this is what Ken has re-created, using an identical chassis from a model 85 ( AMC 25C engine) and re-jigging the engine mounts.

Thank you for the good wishes. Its great fun but a very long day at about 14 hrs and most of it riding. The navigating is the bit I dont enjoy.

Dont forget Dave Shaw on his road going Falcon and Keith Clarke who I think now has a trials but for years used another Falcon.

Fancy a go
