If only Cubbie knew what I'm planning, it would probably sneak out of the shed and hide in the woods for at least the next 3 weeks. I've only gone and booked myself and the Terrified Terror Test Pilot in for the Mick Andrews Trials Training Day, and neither of us have a working trials bike. So, the plan is this....finish assembling my Bulto (just a wheel nut and some cables required, I think, I hope) and then get it running so that the TTTP can ride that, and then take one road going Tiger Cub and strip the lights off it, swap the petrol tank for an ally one that someone has been going to send me for the last two years, get a spare pair of wheels and fit some knobblies to them (that way I shouldn't have to worry about not having the wider swingarm on Cubbie), maybe fit the heavy duty forks that are already in the shed, fit the bash plate that Scott the Cub Man sent me a while back, maybe try and put the high level zorst on so that Cubbie's immaculate low level one doesn't get bashed to bits when I fall off, oh, and get a trials seat from somewhere. And possibly if one turns up, a smaller, more sleek oil tank could go on and what do you think, should I invest in a pair of hefty shocks? The ones on there are from the 70's and I will be building a proper trials Cub in the future and they could then go on there... Anyone got a spare trials seat....oil tank....wide swing arm (for the future project) some decent second hand trials shocks....trials handlebars...and anything else that might come in handy for a trials Cub project....?
