Well if the death penalty isn't a deterrant then I guess no other form of punishment would work either. So, let's punish the vintage guitar owner instead. Makes sense to

How about the death penalty for anyone caught poaching it JFS? Think that would have any effect? I have no problem with that.

I spent a small fortune building that thing up from a cracked frame and a good set of hubs. Damn near everything else went into the discard pile. But I drove almost 200 miles to buy the old turd and I did not come home empty handed. There was ... more »

I used the dual actuated backing plate from the 465 up front, just had to bore the hole to fit the larger diameter KX axle. PVL ignition system, all new modern electrics for old clapped out

250. Slow as shit stock engine. Thinking I saw some death spooge oozing from the ignition so I'll probably be going back with a PVL setup when I get it back out to play. Might have been part of its problem. Spare engine in pieces on the bench too..... ... more »

Somebody say 46mm forks on a vintage bike? 89 KX250's in bored XYZ triples here. Matched up wheel bearings for the larger diameter axle and bored the backing plate and bearing spacer.

Roosted. That's all. Cool that you are doing something educational for kids that may interest them. A kid that used to wash cars and sweep floors during the summers where I worked went on to write a series of children's books about the elements. Turned ... more »

Had them do a whole bunch of gold stuff a long time ago, turned out really nice. Thinking they told me they couldn't match the hard ano color. I have a large bit of red stuff piling up that they may be doing soon.

I remember Coop was a wild man on that bike back then. He would jump stuff no one else would. He wasn't all that graceful about it either! Just throw all caution to the wind and try to clear it. Totally different style than the other riders. On a separate ... more »

What year was it they suggested dropping a tooth on the rear for the CRF250? I also recall a few where the stock gearing was spot on. Good damn thing they don't let Tim Ferry do the testing. Can you imagine all the Vitards freaking out when Ferry recommends ... more »

Yeah, that's all good and stuff but I'm concerned about the MR175 in the photo with the LTG Mulholland's and DG lay down alloy arm. Do those shocks make it all the way through the stroke without binding by the lower mount? And clean that filthy ... more »

It went sideways and down on that project. Shipped them to California where they decided they didn't have a match for the color. From there to Pennsylvania where they were done twice but still came back too light. Ended up having them done 100 miles
