I had "englishman" make me some '89 KX graphics and they came out bitchin' but that solid blue seat cover from Decal Works (it's made by SDG) is almost more purple than it is blue. I'm probably going to talk to N-Style about making something. I'll post ... more »

Don't know if I ever raced there, but we rode practice a lot there from the late 80's through the early 90's. That place was a blast and I loved that small track on the top of the hill, I could rip around on my KX80 and stuff guy's on full size bikes!!

The YZ100 is cool, seems fairly original looking with drum brakes and cartridge forks, but the Honda and the DKW with their disc brakes and upside down forks aren't my cup of tea...

I'm thinking about eventually putting the front end from my '74 MX360 on my MX100 and upgrading the front end on my MX360 to a '75 MX400 front end. Would that be a good idea? DR. MarkR and Newmann, Thanks for the ideas guys, I plan on really dialing ... more »

Well...I could do use a later 70's YZ125 front end. I'm not really into these 100cc Works bikes with CRF150 front ends...might as well ride a CRF150 in that case.

A Pacifico Face Fender correct? I don't have one but I'll keep my eyes out. I have an old Yamaha helmet that could use one as well. Did you ever do those "whoop de chews" stickers for the old GP chest protectors? I'll buy one from ya!

Well...nevermind!! The place I've been doing some electrical work at has a small machine shop, so I had the collar with me and I asked one of the guys if they could make a couple. Forty minutes later I had them in my hands!! I'm stoked...they fit perfect!

Thanks Brad, on second thought I think I'm going to run a set of Bridgestone M22/M23's. I won't be riding my MX100 much, so it won't hurt to have some extra tacky tires!!

Anyone know where I'd find a blue seat cover for a '12 KX450F? Pete24?

I put about 3 or 4 hours into the OEM front fender for my '74 MX100 and I'm really happy with the results. I'll post pictures soon. I didn't want to over do it and have it not match the rest of the plastic by being overly glossy so I only sanded up to ... more »

Good one Mike!!

Thank You!! ...minus the razor blade routine that is the same technique I use for rubbing out gloss coats on surfboards.

I hear there's a Facebook page for Rick, "RickMelon123", personally I prefer staying away from the whole Facebook craze...

Verry cool pics, I was just a few years behind you, but I had a lot of the same gear.

I wanted to make it out to the Marty Tripes Races at Elsinore but I couldn't make it. I did make it out there on my Kx450F to ride the main/vet on saturday and I saw the vintage track that Marc built, looked fun for the pre 80's bikes, maybe a bit too
