Hi Merrill

Your right. It was not necessary for me to interject my political views into the conversation and my poor response came off harshly. Sorry.
Merry Christmas.
Dave

Merry Christmas David
Yes, considering global affairs we have much to be thankful for.

So I have my Enfield motor (motor or engine?) sitting in the original frame on the floor of my garage and I would like to know if I need to separate the gearbox, primary and motor before removing from the frame.

you can leave the gearbox on. I pulled the primary when I did mine;
used the kickstart lever for a handle and just swung it up and out...
have a look at       http://tiny.cc/wN6lw
if you'd like, they are reverse order though....

I always leave the gearbox on, and like Baird444, I remove the primary chaincase before removing it. I also take off the head and barrel, so that I have maneuvering room, and to make it all lighter to handle.

On the bottom of the gearbox are 2 slots/hooks which drop on to the cross-bolt that goes across the frame under the gearbox. You have to remove the top triangular gearbox plates, and then you have to lift the gearbox up enough to get the hooks off the crossbolt. Then you can rock the engine out by lifting it up and out the primary side.

Hello I thought I would show a couple video I shot last year a Terrebonne OR. I didn’t ride because I was recovering from shoulder surgery so I wandered around and took the video. The first video is of Dick Mann and a new trials motorcycle he built using a Triumph 500cc “generator motor” if you look behind Dick you will see another bike he built a BSA Gold Star trials bike. The second video shows the same BSA thrown down onto the rocks breaking the crankcase! Ouch!

Rider 311 is my buddy Frosty. He is 68 years old riding a 250cc Greeves. I had a Greeves just like it but only got two or three rides out of it the entire time I owned it. The bike hated water and would die any time you rode it in the rain or around puddles! Also the bike spit me off going up hill at about 40mph when it seized. Screw that!

A quick tour of my garage with Enfield content at the end.

I have to say my little Campera has been used and abused. I have done several 200 mile days and trips lasting 500 to 700 miles on several occasions. I find it interesting to note that other then one needs really good ear plugs to ride the bike it is an easy handler and none fatiguing other than the noise. See Puyallup Convoy http://www.jhmand.com/hodaka/2008/2008-4.html The Matador has been my trials bike for AHRMA trials for the last 6 or 7 years and once done up properly it has been incredibly reliable. I have not changed the points on the bike and only changed the spark plug just because it seemed like the thing to do. My Sherpa S being a race bike has seen several changes and one solid rebuild.  The Metralla is the culmination of my Jr, High sighting of an instructors Metralla race bike and it just stuck in my head that I must have a Metralla in my lifetime. I actually rode my Suzuki 500 (in 1976) up to Bellingham to look at a Metralla that Steve Baker had for sale in his store when I was in High School. The bike was a peach but at $700 it was out of my range.  The Enfield is to become a Heavyweight trials bike like many of my peers are ridding now and that is my direction for trials.

The awards banquet for the VME is Saturday night and then Sunday morning is this:

If I can keep my act together I plan on riding the Matador in the vintage class. It would be really good for me to participate as my life lately has been way to stressful and a good thrash on an old bike would do wonders for my head.

I made it down to the Purple Penguin trial today and it was so cold everything was frozen. Frozen solid and icy everywhere. I fell off more today then in my entire career of trials riding. I understand that I was a visitor and chose to go and participate in a PST trials but I have to say that stopping in a trials section is stupid. I watched rider after rider get hung up on a log or stump and fiddle and push (with one foot) for 20 or 30 seconds and finally get the bike free and the PST only calls that a one? Anyway they can have rules to suit them. Not my game. I have a big Gumby on my chin from a face plant not that that’s PST fault. Ice sucks!

Looks like fun.

Here's a video of a trials Bullet that I thought was cool.

Hi ACE, all I could find out about Hans Greiner is in German. The bike is apparently a 1958 works replica. Thanks for the video. I don't think I would have wanted to ride a heavyweight at the Purple Penguin Trial! I spent way to much time picking the bike up off the ground!
