Most modern trials held now have a vintage class so I would suggest taking your post vintage machines and ride them. I have ridden a couple modern trials on my classic class Bultaco and would consider the sections as equal or harder then AHRMA 2 line. Again anyone riding a post vintage machine would be bored and unhappy at an AHRMA event.

Not sure it was understood what I meant by Post Vintage. As I said in my first post, I'm talking about bikes from the 80's with twin shocks, drum brakes and are air cooled. Seems like the largest class when I was at VMD in 07,08 and 09 was the Modern Classic. I just don't see how a rider on a 78 TY250 would have fun and be challenged, but a rider on an 80 SWM or an 84 Fantic would be bored and unhappy.
I would think it all depends on who and how the sections are laid out.
