Yes- forgot about Chiodi- that little guy won lots. Also Puzar- he stepped up and down from 125cc / 250cc and won the 125 again in the later years on the TM if my memory serves me correctly.

I would have to agree with Barnett being one of the best 125cc riders. So beautiful also those watercooled 125 Zooks. I would also like to add the late and brilliant Bruce Bunch to the topic- the story goes young Bruce actually overtook 'The Bomber' ... more »

We also had a new 1979 100F back in the day, was a great bike. We ran it for 2 years then got the YZ100H- 1981. The 1981 H handled better but in someways I liked the 79~F- it was really fast. First few races I won on those bikes- as said think the YZ100E ... more »

Yes- my old and foggy memory- remember there was a guy/ youngster who was really fast and raced National level here- think it may have been 1980 and had a Beta 125- recall he lapped the whole field- it was an exotic bike... wasn't many of them here. ... more »

Your bikes are stunning! Is the RM100 a 1980 model? I recall a few YZ100's here from 1979-81 having DG mods/ gold heads but there were less RM's with the DG parts. I had a YZ100F 1979 and also later a 1981 YZ100H, I did sort of okay on them and once

That FMF125 is lovely! and the RM80 also just posted looks so interesting! In the UK we had DG modded bikes but I do not recall the FMF's- were they like a company like DG that provided trick performance parts? Would like to know more- that 125 is lovely

Thats insane- most strange thing (other than attempting it in the first place) is that he seems to be wearing like a smart 3 piece suit with cloth cap or something? Who the heck is the other dude dressed up like a bank manager? Probably the damn undertaker.

Love it when a rider such as Evans appears and beats established riders, possibly unexpectedly. Really hope he does good and will be rooting for him.

Brownie's battles with Langston were maybe the best racing I ever watched! Was just so tense. He also took it to the 250GP class and beat the very best at times ocassionally. Credit to him how he is still kicking ass, amazing!

Added reply in a thread East coast 250 class predictions for round #1 2/15/2020 9:58 AM

I'll go with Sexton or Smith- 1-2- vice versa results. Think Smith has some potential to come. Always impressed me. Hope its got as much excitement as the West one has provided! May the best man win.
