This looks nicely put together - not quite a Bantam but still interesting

Needs expansion pipes really. I don't think straight thrus do much for two strokes. Very pretty, though I still think the best bantam special is the BSA Bleader.

Yep, the Bleader is more to my tastes as well.

But that's not bad! 8-)

Good point about the expansion pipes, and the exhaust route does look pretty convoluted too. Perhaps the tuning it needs may be down in part at least to the exhaust system? But it's a neatly put together bike, built as a trials special going by the knobblies and the lack of lighting. I think the builder's done a great job. I wonder what the reserve is?

Mini Tribsa?

More to my tastes

Hmm, looks ok but the Tigercub motor's not one I like

I like this Tribsa a lot more.
