So who has this vintage trials bike? (I lost out on!)
« on: August 21, 2009, 07:59:42 am »
I tried like mad to buy a montesa vintage triels bike yesterday but was beaten to it :-\

The disadvantage of not being up in the big smoke.
I have been looking for one of these for ages and it pops up on Gumtree........... for R2000 F...ing bucks. Im having one of those days when i cant help being pissed off by not getting it, well my search continues.
Whould have been a nice project, anyone know who the lucky new owner is?

Hanging from the wall? Why not get it running.
