Great Advertisements From The Retro Years
What do you think of these now?. Dont deny it , you had a pair and loved them ....i know :). SOCAL stood for South Colchester ;).
Thierry was one of the first riders to use the Michelin , and Eddy still needed to soak his in thinners , mind you it as cold in them their Belgium hills :)
A nice Gaerne boots advert with Amos as the glamour model.
Advertising agent - "Ive got this great idea. We get a young woman and dress her up in the Trials clothing and get a picture of her chatting on the phone.But we wont be able to plug the phone in , but no-one will notice. That will sell this clothing ".
The John Short silencer and Nature beings BOSCO jacket . I'd kill for one of those !!
Photo taken when O'Neal were trick. Now their stuff is cheap and bottomish of the market - pity
Every lads dream , the DT 125LC. You tore arond like a hooligan on this thing wringing its neck like the law were after you. If fact ...they were after you !! . After this you progressed to the RG350 and fell off. Your mum then told you to sell it or else youd get a thick ear and you took up trials .
The Happy Trial School ran and owned by Adrien Prato. Nearly all of the best riders in the World went down there to teach you and I.
Bardahl oil. You had to be a millionaire to afford this. I used to nick my mums cornflour oil and run by 50 on that - its true :).
Tony Scarlett's Dad was the UK importer of JCM. That might have had an effect on why he rode one :)
It could be a scene from Ferris Bueler's day off :).
Arrgghhh but theyre not , its just designed to fool you. The 125 is a Malaguti not a Yamaha . It is designed and styled exactly around the Tenere even down to the YPVS , colours, rear bike tack , fork gaitors ...in fact bloody everything !!! :).
Cigerettes and Motorbikes - the perfect mix. Trial sport did pretty well out of tobacco did we .
