Performance Bikes TRX850 - Articles

Post by clottyboo » Fri Nov 18, 2022 10:20 pm

Wondering if anybody out there can point me in the right direction.

Performance Bikes built a trick TRX850 in the late 90's and did a series of articles on it's build.

I have identified and bought the final one dated February 1999 but cannot seem to trace the others.

If anybody can provide a list of the magazine dates that covered the build I would be grateful.....and yes there is a very good reason I would like to see them!!! 8) 8)

Pics when I get the refresh completed.

Thanks

I only have the summary article from Feb 99, available here
I'm not sure if there ever were articles describing the build, given how the story in the summary is written I doubt that there were.

Thanks Dicky - That is the mag article I have - I understood that it was a long term project bike but could be wrong,

I will keep looking - Just pleased to own the thing!!! :D

So, suspicion confirmed.
You won't mind if I change your username Jammy Bastard?
It'd be nice to know what happened to Honk's bike, that one was featured in PB as a readers special.

That bike is in Belgium, his owner is named Luc and he has not driven it for a while. He also has a Bakker TDM.
