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

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 »

Found it - Unadilla looks really nice! What i like the most about these vintage races i do, especially in Italy, is the relaxed and friendly athmosphere. There is no bad word in the pits! All one big family, addicted motoheads with nice bikes that share

Sounds cool. Do you have a link to those videos? Me too - i'm using my 1990 Mugen equipped bikes against modern 450s over here. And i also plan to use my 89 this year as i got it really fast, even without the use of a Mugen.

Over here in Switzerland we have freezing temperaturs and quite a bit of snow thus no riding since about 6 weeks. It was just enough now to have my wrist heal again after they removed all the metal.... So i jumped on the occasion when my good friend
