My oldschool Monty bike and the new Montybike.

74 posts in this topic

Hello, im from norway and trialbike many yrs ago, im 30 now and i got this bike used when i was 16yrs old, lol, i was not so active in many yrs cause my freewheel was damage and i was lost about info to get a new one later, most of the yrs i have been busy with car mechanics, but some weeks ago i decide to begin trial bike again, but first i want to fix up this "museum" item from 87 lol,

 

first i will do is removing spray paint that i was so silly to add on many yrs ago, i will paint it up again, add a 19" rim with maxxis creepy crawler tire and a new freewheel in first.. Just to get it running again like before,

 

it have the old pirelli tires in ok condition but the frame need new paint.,i should have new stickers too..

 

History about this bike it was a swedish guy use this on championships in spain many yrs ago, i bought it from his brother.

 

Trying to upload some few pics..

I'm pretty sure some old school BMX shop will still have that saddle, I remember laying my hands on one of these.

Yeah maybe, its nice to see them in great condition.

Well, I dont know about this paint look, but i decide to keep some of the orginal color on the frame, and since it still stand monty on the frame i just make a random design around it and paint it,,

now i will paint it with clearcoat to get it more shiny.

Fixed the grip on the pedals with a cutting machine too last day.

Oh,got the new tire today so installed it right away, like the look. Waiting for a new freewheel for this rim too. So i dont need to swap over from the other wheel.

Thinking to test it on this bike later..

What could it possible be worth if im selling this bike like it is now?

Im going to buy a new trialbike soon, but im not sure if i will still save on this old one..

Tested the new rearwheel, have to modify the brakes rear to have the pads longer down for more brake area on the pads, its to near the sidewall on the tire..

Made better grip on the orginal 220 pedals, like them more than the blue ebay pedals. Fit better for my foot.

I like what you've done with the old school Monty but can't help feeling that it should have been restored to original. I can see why you didn't though because you were planning on riding it so you wanted to improve it. What you've done with the pedals is good, I might do the same to mine.

Found out to use the area downside of our house here, why not make a trial track, at least place something there to train on. Have added some more after this pic, and Will add more stuff with the time. Had to crop down the pic to upload here. Have an hill to the left and stonewall too, so it could be nice to use to jump up on when i will have more skills. Lol

Looks like you've got a good size area to make a riding spot. That decking might be a bit treacherous when it's wet though.

Do you have better pictures of its original colour please? I have the exact model frame kit here but it was stripped a few years back to be repainted but I forgot the colour scheme.

Yeah its very slippery when its wet, i like better to ride when its dry weather anyway,,the first meters of sand there is hard surface too so its ok to cycle there, but longer its more softer..

Well. The handlebar was orange, the fork was chrome, the frame was orange and white, and the rear of the frame was white and some yellow, have u pic of yours? I will see if i can find any older pics:)

if you see the first picture in the first post of this thread you see where the orange color is, the color that has fade away have been white, and the fork chrome.

Got my new leg-crushers now,hopefully these will give a lot more grip. Bought it from spain. And they are much lighter compare to stock pedals.

Plasti dip the frontrim, and installed back the eagle claw tire so i can use it up first.

And the new hashtagg pedals is awsome.

Next upgrade will be ligther rims and wider backrim, ligther handlebar, the orginal is heavy compare to those i have found on websites.

Im thinking to replace all the bolts with titanium bolts too. Lol..

Waiting for bike cycle weight from ebay too. Cool to have and see if weight will be lost.

Until no i have grams weight for bolts,rims etc up to 2000g. ;P

Standard rear rim/wheel without tire shows about 1026g.
