Re: Vintage Trials Bike Question
- I would vote for Trail rider, because spending money on a TL250 for Trials would be a mistake. I can't remember a TL250 ever being competitive except for factory models. That said, I have to admit that I once bored out and stroked a TL125 to a 175, but that was just because I already owned it. My son Terry won the Missouri State Novice championship with it. I also stiffened the front end a bit.

> I am looking at a Honda TL250. It appears to me that the front end has been swapped out with that of an XL. I was told that this was done back in the day to make the front end stronger and brake better. Is this true or was it a way to turn the bike into a trail rider.
