    1973 Dalesman MX
    I bought a Dalesman 125 MX brand new in 1973 in Lincolnshire Illinois. They had 2 identical bikes for sale. I came across frame, engine, and rear wheel of the other years later. I have both and are considering selling them. If anyone is interested, I can send photos directly

    Rare Parts
    Dalesman/Sachs 125
    There is a local guy here in Jeffersonville, New York
    who has been stockpiling parts for all kinds of offbeat bikes for as long as I can remember. Dalesman, Cooper, Tyran, Gemini, Benelli, Moto Morini, Cushman, Guzzi, Jawa, etc. etc.... His name is Francis Huggins and his phone is (845) 482-5086. He also sells new and used parts for just about any snowmobile ever made, but be prepared to pay top dollar for all old parts, he knows he has you by the short hairs ;)

    dalesman 125
    I have had this bike as long as I remember, i got it minus steering head bearings (complete) a side stsnd and a chain tentioner. The only part I need is the bearings. any help would be appreciated, especially the bearing No. so I can get a nw one.
    Thanx Jon.

    Are the bearings tapered roller or cup & cone. If the former, it should not be hard to work out which bearings you need. What year is it? Ed.

    message: Hello I have a dalesman trials bike that is slightly newer than the one you have pictured in your site and I'd love to share a picture with you if you are at all intersted. I have loved this bike since I was 3 years old and used to ride with my father on it. I have always kept my eyes and ears open looking for any others. I live in Canada and we have owned it since new and I have yet to come accross others owning Dalesman bikes although about 5 years ago I did run into an English chap who told me he used to ride for Dalesman and that his buddy was the one who made all the handbuilt tanks for their trials bikes of that year. I do know it was purchased new in the early 70's by my father and is almost all stock with the exception of aluminum fenders. Let me know if you are interested in any pictures I may have of mine and look foreward to any more info I can find about mine. Thanks again. Ryan

    Hello I have taken a few pictures that you can feel free to add to your collection of other bikes and Dalesman Photos. Sadly I didn't have the skid plate mounted for these pictures but I do have it and plan on cleaning the bike further and will send better pictures when I do so.

    Thanks again for the great site and I also have the origional manuals etc. and if someone needs any of the info in them (on the Dalesman or Sachs engine) please contact me and I'd be happy to help out if possible.

    I know the stock speedo seems slightly out of sorts on a Trials bike but from what we understand it was us for the use in a KR trials. If anyone knows any more about this bike I'd love to hear about it. We have owned it since new but due to the fact that they are rare ....and even more so where we live ....any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks again for the great site and all the bikes and info in it.

    Dalesman listed on Ebay UK
    Vendor's Description:
    Dalesman twin shock trials bike. 1969. I believe they were made in Station Road,Otley, West Yorkshire by a chap called Peter Edmonson. Everything must go before the garage comes down in March! so it is for sale.I have yet to source a kickstart and gearlever for it but apart from that the bike is complete and i had it running last year by bumping it off and was flying round the estate (much to the joy of my neighbours!). The tank and air filter are not original but i have them. I have spent a small fortune on the bike including re hard-chroming the front forks and powder coating all the steel parts. It has a Sachs engine which i think is 125cc. Frame number is 1086. It still has its original registration number 'OOV 2G' but i have no V5 for it. I have a 1969 'Motorcycle Sport' magazine with an article about them which will come with it.

    If you have a query or information about Dalesman motorcycles please contact us
