Hey Michael, thanks for the answer. Enjoy your stay in Milan, i guess you are at the EICMA, correct? Lots of new goodies but even better....lots of hot chicks as well

By the way - There is a very fun track right near Milan: Dorno If you have ... more »

No - i won't give names here. You'd think it is a reputable source though.It's a shame as there's quite a few people that might pay serious money for parts like this. This is a close-up of my VRP swingarm (attached to a full VRP chassis...parts me and

Uhhh-i hope you got a "real" VRP swingarm as there's too many fakes sold out there! Most probably though you got one that might fail when used....there's some guys in Italy selling fakes for good money. Just check the picture below what can happen to

There's just a lot of blabla here. I'm a diehard Honda rider since almost 30 years but seeing they simply ADDED 7 lbs over a already 6 lbs heavier precedessor....means we are now looking at a 13 lbs heavier bike than the leaders of the class. This alone is making it a big NONO for me. Then regarding power: a 10% increase won't still be enought to get even close to the Austrian powerplants. Handling alone won't help it much. We are still looking at a overweight and underpowered bike.

As mentioned before i just mounted some '89 Mugen USD forks onto my 3rd CR 125. So now all three have the same forks. I now have three super tricked out bikes for vintage racing BUT my bad shoulder won't let me ride my bikes anytime soon.I'll get it

What's definitely cool is also the stares you get in the pits when you show up with old bikes: there's always people come to have a look, you are always chatting with someone asking questions about it...they don't care about the latest '17 bike sitting

Sure they had trick parts back in the day. And it's those parts i am talking about that you are able to use! Just not modern forks or whole CRF front-ends etc....it has to be parts of the era just like my VRP which is about as trick as a bike can be. ... more »

That's some nice bikes you have there! But i just think the way the italians handle the vintage racing is what it is all about: have your bike built with parts that were able BACK IN THE DAY. Just as it were a timeshift. So you can't put modern forks

The wrist is actually ok. It's now the shoulder that bothers me and i should have it examined and done another MRI to detect if i really needs to be operated. I hurt it at the same incident where i shattered my wrist only back then the wrist pain obviously ... more »

I think it's a correct penalty! If you watch the replay you see 6 guys passing him on the lane he left when crashing....i guess that's what leaded to this penalty as these are the guys he would have to pass back had he re-entered where he left the track. ... more »

it's really difficult to find these and if you should find one expect to pay huuuuge dollars... I sent you a PM. Here's a look at some of those HPP covers Stock Mugen HPR (adjustable preload for HPP) Wirtz (adjustable preload for HPP)

I definitely agree that there is no more power to be generated by these channels, but they sure make for the same effect as your trying to block "hot" air from coming in from below by instead bringing some fresh air down there. I'd say by putting that ... more »

Niiice polish job on your tank

Do i see modern forks on your bike? That's something you aren't allowed over here! Bikes&parts need to be of the era. No modern forks, no oversized brakes, no 19" rear wheels... I personally don't think that ... more »
