Agree with the above comments. Although I grew up with my older brother racing in the 70's and i truly love all motorcycles it's the bikes of my youth about 78-90, that period where you begged your mom to go to the store so you could buy all the magazines ... more »

That's the stupid 300 page rule book. I 100% agree that's it's way too convoluted. I don't think a ti shock spring or whatever is going to be a game changer and as you said in 86 we raced what was available, and if I remember correctly Hondas dominated ... more »

Kinda surprised the AHMRA PV was bigger than the promoter class, I have a AHRMA licence but chose the promoter classes, cheaper entries and I could care less about points or a series. Can't wait to come again this year!

Check out phil Denton engineering website. I think the Honda's are the easiest bikes to build as long as you have a solid bike to start with. Your imagination and willingness to rob from your retirement fund are the only limits!

I thought unadilla's model was about perfect, not many rules, just bikes of a certain decade line up and go. Also agree about having a million classes, so everyone gets a trophy, sucks. I refuse to go to modern MX for that very reason, long day of waiting ... more »

They don't call it evolution for nothing... I always wonder how many cigarettes and bottles of sake were consumed by overworked engineers at the big four back in the 70's and 80's! Had to be way different then versus the once a decade overhauls of nowadays. ... more »

Be warned the 1982 RM 465 43mm forks won't work either, ask me how I know... I'd look at online parts fische of anything I was planning to buy to verify it will all play... There is a nice complete wheel on ebay for a decent price if you don't want to ... more »

You will need the DLS compatible front hub and either modify your fork tube or better yet find a later 43mm fork and clamps with the lower brake tab in the correct place. There are two different backing plates also. One has a boss that the cable attaches ... more »

They gotta do something, Bigger turnout at MX Rewind in the promoter classes for these bikes than for AHMRA classes. Didn't look to see if they implemented their 300 page rule book that makes all my bikes illegal. Did see something about number plate ... more »

Ha, its fun to ride a buck' n quarter for sure. Been racing my 97 CR against modern bikes in the senior class and if I don't make too many mistakes I can hang in there on it. I get a lot of thumbs up from others when I pull up on it. If I can get a little ... more »

Hey, been awhile so was just wondering if you were still interested in selling these... No rush, just curious.

Leave it to Motocross Fiction Magazine to screw up, the kids in the copy room are probably younger than the bikes in question. Kinda cool I own both of those bikes also!

I'm interested in the pipe and silencer, exactly what I'm looking for! I would also be interested in the rear shock and possibly the radiators. I never have any luck with the messenger feature on here so please email me with your asking price and shipping. ... more »

Glad to have you! Always seems like a lot of like minded folks and not much mindless name calling on this forum so I think you will enjoy. I would definitely be interested in a stock or period aftermarket pipe and possibly other parts if you are parting ... more »

Awesome!! Exciting to hear the old RM can hang with bikes far further up the evolutioary food chain. Kinda why I chose it for a project. I always come back to brakes being the biggest performance gain, and at the end of the day no drum can hang with ... more »

Ha thanks for the offer, be tough to make it to FL this winter and have a chance to ride... Pretty excited to see what the 82 RM is all about... Guess I have to manage my expectations and not compare it to my 86 Honda as I think i'll be disappointed. ... more »

Sounds like are on the same page motor wise! I've been emailing with Tom Morgan today about porting the cylinder and head. I also have both an 82 and 83 head. I can't imagine that the motor doesn't run better with the 83 head. Think sometimes people ... more »

Good looking Zook! The 84 pipe runs on the RH side of the frame, the 82, 83 crosses over to the LH in front of the airbox.. the 81 has a side mount exhaust spigot and the 80 has different mount location to he 81... Gotta love the 80's when they started ... more »
