Trials project wanted!

Post  FB_Devil on Sun Sep 07, 2014 8:37 pm

Hi All, just finished restoring a Cruiser 75 and 89 twin as well as a James Captain 197. All have villiers engines. As all are road bikes I am now tempted to restore a Villiers powered trials/scrambles bike and already have a fully refurb end and tuned Villiers 9e engine.

So my first questions is - what bike/project should I be looking for to install the engine in?

My second question is - does anyone gave an unfinished or part finished project or bike that you would be willing to part with?

Really enjoyed working on the bikes above and just about finished a Triumph T100S 1970 but really fancy working on another two stroke and keeping the FB and James motorcycles names alive!

If anyone has a collection they are downsizing or knows of a bike that is languishing unloved that would love a make over please contact me. May be some one knows of a good candidate before I resort to eBay?

Hi, i did up a falcon 74 last year so this year thought id have a go at at trials. i got myself a james captain k7 off ebay that someone had started to convert into a trials. The project so far is alot less hassle than a road bike , not much tin wear and no lights or harness just the ignition!!
So good luck finding a project i did see this one on ebay if you are still looking 191318007585 .
