Classic Dirtbike - - Kendal Classic Revival -

In the Six­ties, Robin Humphries felt the stock front sus­pen­sion sup­plied with most comp bikes was lack­ing in per­for­mance. So, as you do, he de­cided to make his own un­der the REH brand and any num­ber of the two stroke mak­ers of the day bought units from him.

Fast for­ward a year or two, the sus­pen­sion world moved on, the Ja­pa­nese fac­to­ries pro­vided bikes with re­li­able and good front sus­pen­sion. Robin moved on too and the REH name was con­signed to his­tory un­til the pre-65 tri­als world heard about them. En­ter Dun­can and Judy Mac­don­ald who – un­der the ARMAC brand – were ser­vic­ing the me­chan­i­cal and ac­ces­sory needs of clas­sic tri­als rid­ers. “Oi!” said the scram­bles lads, “we want a bit of this too… can you do sus­pen­sion for us?”

Never keen on just stick­ing some­thing out there, Dun­can put his en­gi­neer­ing mind to the prob­lem, built some units, in­volved Chris Chell in de­vel­op­ment and the front forks are now out there for the scram­bles world.

These are brand­new units, can be tai­lored to a rider’s re­quire­ments and are fully re­build­able and ser­vice­able. Visit­hforks. com.
