Your Montesa is the same as the one I lend Andy Guy. His first ride was in the Mallory Park trial a few years ago....

It’s great fun. The classics twinshocks are my favourites.... I’ve got modern stuff, but it’s not proper trialling.... £10 to £15 for each event,  4 or 5 hours on the bike.... great value for money....l
