Is a 10 year old bike considered old school

My first RM build in quite some time, changed triple clamp offset 22.4 to 22 for more front tire contact patch, wheels, plastics, suspension upgrades. They sure are pretty Photo

Not sure why you think a RM needs more front wheel bite, they set the standard for turning!

Nice looking bike but once you get to 1989ish your basically just tweaking the same design over and over again. Prior to that you had dramatic changes every few years if not every year. from 74-80 most bikes went from 4" of travel to 12". Power rose from a 30hp 250 to a low 40 hp 250 from mid seventies to early 80s. By the early 90s you had USD forks, power valves, reed valves, link shocks, and disk brakes. Now you have the same just more refined...

Nice RM, I'd be within 10ths on lap times if I still had mine compared to my 450. Fun bike....
as for Old School, you'll need to pull that CZ I spy to front and center!

Thanks guys, I will say an 89 to 98 RM is not close to the 08, no dough the CZ is way old school, I can beat a lot of modern bikes on that machine also, problem comes with weekly practice, kills the vintage bikes.

I have an 03, not their best product but certainly a sweet machine. Decent suspension, good mid power spread, nice bark. I use it mostly for trail and desert riding, but it does love the mx track! I get next to 0 headshake even!

Yours is damn nice, good job!
