C12T
« on: 29 October, 2020, 08:18:02 »
Occasionally ride a C12 converted to trials, interesring old thing that is not a winning bike but great fun and lovely on green lanes.... Also have a Gollner Bantam , but thats for serious competitions and as age has caught-up will be sponsoring my son to ride it in serious trials. On the trials theme I also have the Earls Court show bike from 1962 and frame C15C 101, That's also ridden occasionally in 'dead easy' trials and for riding to do observing duties in National events. SSDT etc.   Griff

Safe riding saves pinch marks on the seat...

Hello
I am interested if you could give me a little more information about your C12T please.
I purchased 2 x 1957 C12's in boxes , I have nearly completed rebuilding the first one but I would like to rebuild the second one as a classic trials. I have always competed in trials off and on over my life but can no longer ride due to poor legs but enjoy fiddling with bikes. Your bike appears to have a standard size rear sprocket so I assume either the primary gears or the gearbox ratios have been altered and if so did you do do it or are there C12  gearboxes available for a trials scenario?

Thank you Bernard.
