Not a problem Unc, 4 stroke class,as long as its pre 84 all good.
You would have to take the Barkbusters off(not allowed in VMX)plug the bar ends,remove or tape all the lights off, remove the sidestand, numbers each side and on the front, pad on the cross bar,and away you go
I was third last on the XT at Canberra last month,and my back is still recovering but its all about having fun with your mates
Have you got any mates? Oh, thats right ,Dobbo!

i'm not a vinduro rider but have ridden some of the sexy beasts in this thread a few decades back.

just wondering is there any guide to valuing vinduros here in oz? a mate bought a mint condition IT175 from a collector overseas years ago and asked me what it would be worth here. any valuation guides or similar around?

No official guides for any of this type of bike I'm afraid. It all depends on what it's worth to the buyer.
Prices are waaaay down at the moment and I wouldn't be selling anything unless you had to at the moment. e.g. a very nice '75 Husky 360CR GP struggled to get $2500.00 a little while ago and I recently bought a good one owner 250 for 600 bucks.
Being an IT and not being able to register it as it's an import won't help either. That said, if it's really mint, you wouldn't want to ride it anyway.
FWIW you could ask on ozvmx.com but I'm sure you'll get a similar answer.
Sorry to be Mr. doom and gloom. Just the way it is right now.
But on the upside, it's a great time to buy!

thanks tony, i reckon it's a crap time to sell too. i've advised him to not bother forking out cash to advertise on bikesales and just go the freebie options. if he wants to get his money back it will have to be finding a collector who wants one as near to new as possible for a collection. it's probably not the right bike for someone just after an IT to ride.

i reckon the pre 80 market has eased right off because of the age of the demographic. most blokes in their 60's can't be stuffed getting on the old dunga's from the 70's anymore.
pre 90 stuff is where it's at right now. the average buyer is in their 40's to 50's and is cashed up and still fit enough to ride.
the big money is in anything 500cc and 2 stroke. wish i had a shed full of CR500's

You never know, though. There might be someone out there that is after exactly one of these and it sounds like you won't find many in better shape.
Even put it up on here. Lots of people look on here and someone might want it or know someone who does.

no worries, tony. he's just posted it in the fleabay here and put it up on gumtree as well. it's definitely and import and can't be registered without some paperwork done. although i heard pre-1986 bikes are fairly easy to get compliance on here?

Classic Dirt 10 cancelled??

Any reason given why it was cancelled??

I'm in the process of giving a PE175T a good overhaul and would liked to have made it down, but wasn't going to be able to make it. So I was setting sights on next year...

Cheers

Lack of entries meant the promoter was going to take a hit, which he wasnt prepared to do, so made a financial decision to bail out. Fair enough, it is a business.

I went out to do a bit of a ride today


Did some of this above .



Then on the way home I spotted some old dunga's racing around Lakes MX track so I stopped to have a look . Didn't spot Sidetrack about the place .







The racing continues tomorrow too , so I will probably wander over to have another perve on some old dunga's again tomorrow .
