This is the newest bike to the stable, it is a lot of fun to ride, but.... I have found another machine and I am raising funds....
So here it is. A '63 Trail Bronc, I had no idea what it was until Allan Gill put me onto it. It has the D7 Bantam 175cc two stroke motor, 3 speed trans, 80 tooth rear sprocket. Quite the stump puller. It looks, well, sparse. It came that way, no front fender, chain guard, lights, horn, just what is needed for the trail. No shiny chrome, the wheels, handlebars, controls, exhaust are all a silver hard chrome finish that is really tough, just not shiny. This example is a survivor, almost entirely original with a couple mods. The po apparently set it up for trials use. It has a trials seat, the rear brake has been modified to add a hand lever under the clutch lever. The awkward looking exhaust extension is a spark arrestor so the bike can be used on State grounds, National forest, etc. When I got it had a bunch of junk I removed, lights, weird air filter, fork brace made of old con rods. I stripped the thing down to the frame, cleaned all the dirt a and grease off, polished the paint and re-assembled. I honed the cylinder, cleaned the ports, and made a copper head gasket. The chain is new, the forks need rebuilt, I have the boots as well as the rubber for the kick start. The frame had been extended behind the seat, I put it back to original dimensions. It is a fun little bike, apparently pretty rare. I would like to see it go to a good home (Brit bike enthusiast). I'm asking $1,500. I am in the Sacramento, Ca area. I can send more photos or descriptions upon request.
