C15 Otter Trials Workshop

Bought the frame kit from Faber Marketing Truro Cornwall in December 2003, also an Alloy tank, Air Box, Bash Plate, Exhaust & SM Alloy silencer, SM Footrest Kit, SM Brake Pedal, SM Chain tensioner, SM Alloy Chain Guard.

Found the donar bike on Ebay, a 1966 C15 (side points model), looks like i can use the front forks as well. The rest will go back on Ebay to pay for the rest of the parts i need.

First Job was to get the engine position relative to the chain run.

The Chain tensioner bracket on the frame seemed to out of line with the engine sprocket, so a new mounting had to be made, fixed to the bottom of the bash plate.

Before the chain tensioner could be sorted, the bash plate had to be fitted. The lower engine mountings have to be welded in place during fitting.

After a long break (working away in France,and changing career paths). I finally reached the point at which a MOT was booked (June 2006), passed first time so now just need to find some trials to enter.
