The only other alternative is to search for a good light weight set of hockey shoulder pads. Essentially that is what they were back in the 70's when JOFA was the only choice for motocross pads.

The TLD shoulder pad/chest protector I think is a good choice

As long as I can still watch the full Motos the next day on YouTube, why would anyone pay for either service.

Mike, I hope there was some Maxima 927 or Blenzall in the gas to really make it feel and smell like the good old days! PK

In aviation we use torque stripe or torque seal to mark nuts and bolts with. It is also called anti-sabotage marker. Better than the paint marker as it can be pealed off when you re-torque the bolts to re-mark them.

I think it unlikely the swing arm and bar color where different. With the other things done to that big I think the arm was painted and newer bars put on.

There always used to be a round on the GP schedule in the United States in the '70s and '80s. 125cc at Mid-Ohio, 250cc at Unadilla, and 500cc at Carlsbad. This was where US and European rides mixed. Also, not that it would work anymore with schedule, ... more »

Here is a picture of mine with RAL3020 and VMX plastic. From what I have learned on this site and the old Honda-Elsinore page was to do the frame in a 80-85% gloss, which is the same as from the factory. Your powder coat guy can make that happen. For
