A CR500? Good lord man, are you duct taping your hands to the hadlebars? Rode a friends once, and it was a dirt missle. What are you riding in the vinatage class? Who'd a thought there would ever be a class that I could have run my old Montessa Diablo in? Sorry I sold it now. VWW
A 1972 Yamaha DT1F (DT250) Yamaha Enduro. Works Performance shocks, Noleen dampner rods in the forks with top-out springs. GYT kit with a TT pipe. Barums on both ends. I got 4th place last year in my class (with a stock enduro top end, pipe). I'd pass everybody on the track, and they'd pass me right back on the BIG straight.
So this year I've geared the 250 to the moon, and slapped on a '72 GTY Kit top end, with a TT pipe. It's good for about 80 now. Heh heh.
It was fun putting it to all them urapeein bikes. Most of 'em blew up, hence my good finish.
BTW, there were about 25 bikes in the Vintage class last year. DeWayne Jones won on a Maico.
Montessa eh? I had a blue tanked Capra 250 once long ago. Neat bike (when I could start it).
