Yeah, the under 10k part is the kicker.

For sure. The AF is sweet when ripping

They don't vibrate near as bad in steel frames as aluminum. That's really the biggest drawback to AFs imom

What sort of gibberish did you just write? I said like two post up it's a fun conversation, and nobody said anything about limiting to the US market, Mike just used that as a numbers qualified. Anyway, the OP was about CR or KX 500s. They are already ... more »

Yeah, I agree on that point, I'm the same. I'd love one for fun reasons, not anything rational. I just think the pool of buyers is microscopic unfortunately. It's a fun convo though.

You'd buy a 20k bike? Because I specifically said I wouldn't buy a new old 500, only a completely new factory tested and designed one that had as much development as the current 450s. I'd want modern EFI, chassis, suspension, most likely direct injection ... more »

Well, there is. You are buying a new bike and all that entails. A 2018 Honda CRF 450 is literally 27 years more advanced than a CR500. Same with cars. A 2018 F150 has almost no relation to a 1991 F150.

Most AF's are not great, but some of the later ones are not too shabby. But this touches on what I'd want, a bike that had an OEMs full R&D effort behind it. You can buy a space age bike for under 9k right now, it's hard to imagine spending 15k on ... more »

I think so, as does ML, who is pretty tuned in. I guess I would put the question to you why would you pay that much money for a new bike when there are tons of used ones available? What are you gaining? I've had no problem with parts personally, so not ... more »

And honestly, I am sort of one of them. But not for the same 30 year old CR500 that already exists, I have one, and you can buy them all day for a lot cheaper, why would you drop a shed of money on a new one? Fresher paint? It just doesn't make sense. ... more »

I think that 1000 is extremely generous Mike. I'd guess 200. And no way you could sell them at 10k if they anything remotely reasonable. Maybe 15k at best.

If you could even get the drawings, which I doubt, this would cost an obscene amount of money for extremely obsolete technology

The AF is the ticket man! Do it! Love the bike, nothing like a big bore. Just wish I had more open space, it needs to run. Waiting for the weather to turn here, still nasty out. Been keeping busy building a 92 CR250.

That doesn't have anything to do with what I said. Unless you have evidence these are not all card carrying professional bike racers, then it's as noted, there is no entry level in supercross.

Is it seriously not possible to have unread thread distinction and what threads you have posted in flagged? It's seriously tech that was in the very first BB software ever, that somehow VItal is unable to manage.

Need a Shasta White airbox, NOS preferable, but something that is restorable and undamaged at least.
