Reply to Why is Malcolm being fined!?! 2/20/2012 11:47 AM

It wasn't Bogles hand, it was his leg! I just finished watching the vid over and over for 20 minutes. Malcolm was still trying to gas it and break away with Bogle's leg stuck in his rear wheel! You can see Bogle yelling "WTF!!!!" when Stewart is ignoring

If I was a kid today I would say this bike was "epic" I don't know why, but I wanted one!! Worked in the family apple orchard all summer and saved up $125 to buy it. It weighed a frickin' TON. Haha. 1976 or 77 Raleigh MX! Check out the simulated shocks,

'79 XR80, pushed it off the showroom floor myself!! Last year of the low-pipe, and last year as Honda's 80cc "race" bike. I was so choked when the 1980 CR80 came out and my Dad said " No, you just got a new bike last year" Still rode the snot out of

Reply to Vintage gas tanks 2/3/2012 4:08 PM

Yeah, I figured the Can Am is a '75, wasn't sure about other years because also remembered the black & orange tanks too.

I sent away for a poster of this ad when I was 10 yrs. old. I think it took 6 months..........probably cause I paid for it with an envelope stuffed with Canadian quarters, dimes. and nickels!! Ha! Wish I still had it. Lost it in a move back in the "young

Hey guys! I've had a couple of gas tanks hangin' on the wall in my garage for a few years now. Never really been able to pinpoint the model or year of either one. I think the can-am tank is a '75 or ?? The Ossa tank is fiberglass, and is in amazing shape

I had one of those!! Nice job! Always wanted to go to a 21" front. I put S&W Stroker shocks on mine and when it blew up, a steel sleeve in the cylinder so I could get it up to 130(ish)cc's. The shocks and swingarm on your bike are beautiful.......drool,drool,

Well.....maybe it was a Skunkworks shock kit, not forks. The memory is still good......just gets the details garbled up a bit sometimes! Ha! Twin shock linkage.....very cool!

Nightmare will be my source for bodywork and stuff, but didn't see many engine-related parts on their site. I have been getting a few responses from the links in this thread, so things are looking up!

Reply to 87 KX 250 12/23/2011 9:10 AM

Have you personally seen this done with reasonable success? I was thinking about it as a last resort, but wasn't sure how much bottom end I would lose. .......still holding out for the proper parts. Thanks again for the links & info!
