'Trip down memory lane?'- thats for sure. Remember it like yesterday- remember there were quite a few of them... aah the sound! Remember the earlier Grey ones but more so the red ones. You had the XR75's to begin with then the slightly later XR80's. ... more »

For sure the field seemed depleted somewhat but in fairness the racing and finish was so close it made up for it. So in someways it was really good. Surprised AC got it but credit to him! Also was great to see Mookie and Freise right up the front, so ... more »

Thats hard- injury was damn well brutal enough anyway to cope and deal with. Really hope things work out oneway or another financially somehow and most of all a full physical recovery can be achieved.

I wouldn't mind being compared to Neville Bradshaw- not that I probably ever would be- he was well quick and scary fast! Has to be a compliment! Guy was a serious top rider over here.

You guys got damn good memories! Yea- do seem to have a very distant memory of Demaria/ Vohland or at least that Pepsi Team now its mentioned. Vohland and Demaria were great riders and they could take it to Stefan Everts even on their day. How cool was ... more »

Hahah- me too but thinking of even earlier, like PR50 Italjets... total rocketships from like 1979 or something. Speaking of which were named after the ace NMA Champ, now sadly deceased- Paul Denis. Apparently they named the bike after Paul- PR designating ... more »

Added reply in a thread WILL A 92 RM125 PIPE FIT A 91? PLEASE HELP 10/3/2019 7:43 AM

I had a Pro Circuit works edition 89 pipe (without the lower bracket) and someone had bodged welded a lower bracket on it, I would assume to then fit to a 90 or 91(with the lower bracket)- although I never saw it fitted on the bike.

That brings back good memories. Those little things were rocketships back in the day seem to remember. Looks great and also must be pretty rare now. How did you get the plastics so good? Are they painted or new? Seem to remember a few years back some ... more »

Thats excellent- really good pictures also of the commerative plates, that is interesting. For sure was an groundbreaking event. Think also around 1980 there was an International youth meeting in Holland, a few of our top riders attended. That maybe ... more »

How damn cool is that! You must have been quite a fast rider to have got in that event? I remember it fairly well and have always found this race and event interesting. Must have kind of been one of the very first International events for the Youths ... more »

Paul Denis raced and won in and around the 1980's and probably more, he was very fast and raced Bruce Bunch, Rick Hemme and Kyle Fleming and loads of other fast riders at those times. Are many threads and posts in 'Old School Moto' about these times ... more »

Not sure- could be likely and may explain how the cylinder is in Sweden. Or even if certain Teams may have exchanged parts at all? Seems strange but interesting how Alan King cylinder has found its way to Sweden! Nice score though for sure.
