Meet Chuck Connor from Salmon Arm - no not THE Chuck Connors the film star who played in a lot of TV movies - But a retired guy, who has decided to give Trials riding a go.  - We had a really interesting conversation when he visited our shop to pick up this great Evo 300 4T - I learned that he has hiked up Joss a few times, plus other Mountains in the area. Chuck has a couple of other bikes, but I’m guessing these will now take a back seat to the Beta.

Here is another super old Scrambles pic from the past - a Two stroke Greeves and what looks like a BSA. ( Greeves rider might be Brian Goss)

Another BSA - the “Gold Star” in what was called “Clubman’s trim” - these were very popular in club road races, interestingly, you could buy the same basic bike in “Scrambles” or “Trials” trim.
