Tandon Trials
Saw the picture of the Tandon Trials bike and it triggered a memory of one very similar I had in the 60s

I have a '53 Tandon Kangaroo Supreme, which has the Villiers 6E 197cc motor. The Supreme was the larger engined version of the Kangaroo, and was Tandon's competition model at that time...

Tandon Imp
You may like to know that I owned a Tandon Imp which had monoshock suspension - the shock absorber being placed under the engine and linked to a swinging arm.
