Jim Susans' Bikecraft Classic Trials Bikes

Now here's a very special treat! Here are some pictures of classic Ariel trials bikes built by Jim Susans, of Bikecraft . Jim has built more than a 100 classic trials bikes over past 26 years. I've included a few pictures here of some of Jim's creations; keep an eye on this page, as there will be more to come in the future. We have some of Jim's Ariel, A.J.S. and even Noriel pictures still to come! Jim tells me that he has retired now, although he's sometimes to be seen at classic trials.
