Started back racing in 2013 after 38 years off the bike. Here is a picture from a few weeks ago, Monster Mountain MX in Alabama, 63 years old on a 1985 Maico 500. I have several friends that are 75 years old, and older, that still race and are still

I have Boyd Engineering bike, before they were Boyd and Stellings. The frame has the adjustable rake, and is in pretty good shape, the rest of the bike is very rough. The stampings say Boyd Engineering.

Derek Wedding is still racing. He lives near Tyler, TX and is still very fast. If you look him up on Facebook (james derek wedding), he gives "moto updates" from each of his races, and they are very, very entertaining. He rides several bikes in several ... more »

I am considering a new trailer and wanted to see if there is any interest in my current MX race trailer. It is a 1999 CargoMate Gooseneck trailer that had a conversion done, when new. (this is what they did before toy hauler trailers were invented).

I have a set of Honda forks that I need more information on, please. Specifically, what year model are these forks? I want to put them on a 1997 CR500 Honda and am wondering if I need to change the stem/triple trees, or if I can just swap out the fork

Added reply in a thread THE DUDE to root for - At Ironman this weekend. 8/22/2019 7:55 AM

It is my understanding that due to the large number of entries they are running qualifying races to get on the gate for the 125 race. If some of the riders don't show up, maybe they won't run the qualifiers, but last week Derek was expecting to have ... more »

I am not sure, but I have one of the early ones, too. It was before Stellings joined. It reads Boyd Engineering, and has the adjustable head stay. It had an Ossa engine in it, but not sure it was designed for that. How much do you want for it?

My 86 is a SC model...the "scrambler" model in 86, and they were air cooled. It has a different serial number prefix than the other 86 models. They probably called it that to use up all of the air cooled parts to then make only water cooled. Getting

Added reply in a thread Wow... Amateur day at Daytona 2019 catered to VMX racing? 2/26/2019 2:23 AM

What are the class/bike requirements? In other words, are pre-74 bikes in a different class than the long travel suspension bikes? How new of a bike can be entered? Disc brakes? Water cooled? Maybe there is a link and I just missed it.

I just installed a Lectron on a 2005 YZ 250 2 stroke and asked for it to be setup prior to shipping to me. Did a carb swap, fired it up, ran great, no tuning required. I did readjust the idle setting, after it warmed up. I am hesitant to adjust it because ... more »

Speedman, Yes sir, the seller had a lot of cool bikes in his collection. Several full size 50cc race bikes, which used to be a very big deal in Europe. It seems that they then moved the bikes up to 85cc engines, but they were the full size race bikes, ... more »

Thank you for the kind words. No, I have not tried to start it, but have kicked it over. The previous owner told me that he started it once, after restoring it. I raced a twin pipe 360 for 2 years in the AHRMA series. I currently have 4 other twin pipe ... more »

I wanted to share with everyone a bike that I found in Europe this year. I was working there and ran across this bike, which I think is very significant to MX history. In 1966 a two stroke won the 500cc World Championship, for the first time. It was
