I'm interested but not too much single track stuff!

Dunno whether 'Kenny' qualifies as 'vinduro', but fuck it Dave - it's what I got!!

How fussy are the people running these sort of events, are they purists? or don't worry if you turn up on a tricked out 'roadie' conversion???
Cheers

Wouldn't care what it was as long as it fit into the class of it's year with no later model parts. So if it's pre 75 for exampleit has to be period correct for that era.

Only regret/rue getting rid of one of them to an extent it makes my stomach churn, a CZ 400 Falta replica

I've always wanted a CZ, I regret selling my Bultaco 370 pursang and 370 Frontera.

So if it's a '75 frame with '74 motor, it would be classified as a '75?
what about a newer motor / older frame ????, what ever is the newest or the frame because of the compliance plate????????

On our way to a VMX round at Canowindra last year, we stopped in Queanbeyan for a feed and this was parked in the street! I would rate it as one of the best restos I have ever seen, had to see to believe! Talked to the owner , he was rather blase, but proud as well, as entitled!

In a possibly futile effort to enhance my current pitiful fitness level, I went to a local private MX track to cut a few laps
Since the VMX PE looks like this at the moment


ol mate came thru with this weapon for me!



Of course Team STAG co member kicked my arse all day on his KDX200!



Went OK actually, only real issue was severe hand pump
So yeah, looking forward to Broadford next month!

Montesa enduro 75



This once looked the sexiest thing on two wheels when I boughtit new in 1975. Still runs. Needs a new enthusiastic owner.

Montesa VR74



This one is 90% restored but needs an air box . Lay down shocks are non- standard on the 74 model.

It is in running order.

Does anyone know a Montesa collector?

They are in the Adelaide Hills right now, but a trip to Harrow is easy enough. There was a bloke at Harrow who was a Montesa collector from Ballarat but I neglected to record his details. At the time the current owner was still full of enthusiasm and he has nearly completed the MX-er, but he is working in the mines now and does not have the time/energy to complete the projects. It would be a shame to have them rot in the back of his shed and deprive the VMX/Vinduro of the resource.
