Yup that looks like air force field. Climate controlled tents, freshly mowed lawns, vacation destinations, and industrial strength night lights.

Tryin to get some of these "knobbie headed folks" converted over... What some of these DS guys don't realize is that the tires they are running would be VERY acceptable on a dirttrack... Yeah, you Ray... on an Ascot no less. Check with us, it'll change yer life. Did I just call Ray out... wow I think I did. The racetrack is closer to your house than your job is, just sayin. We got something for Carter to ride also.

UH OH!! OK bike is capable but the rider skill level isn't.

Would be in the bales in the first turn.

If I can get a day off and caught up enough, I have some serious PM to do on the little Ascot.
Would the Ascot fit in the vintage class? It turned 30.

...air cooled, dual shocks... yeah You don't need to go fast, just ride it around a few laps and you'll be surprised at what skill you do have. It'll be a hoot and Carter will have fun.

As much fun as flat track is to watch, there are no hills, rocks or stream crossings. So you'll have to count me out. You all have fun and we'll come out to spectate when were not wearing out knobbies.

I need to practice my wheelie control and lifting the front tire to go over / through ditches etc.
Was a great time riding today though.
I also need to replace my tires. :-)

I'm sure Carter would enjoy it. As for the Ascot.......I don't think I could bring myself to put the bike on the track. I ride it everyday commuting to work. Love the little bike. I would be afraid I would wreck it. It does sound sweet though with the muffler removed. Would be funny a straight piped bike with plates and a pelican case on a rear rack doing laps. I could use the turn signals when I enter the turns.

Guess the biggest thing is I am working 7 days a week now and when I do make it home I have to play catch up around the house. That last strom did some roof damage. Trying to figure out how to get that taken care of now. Borrowed a ladder last night. Get off at 3pm today so it will still be daylight when I get home. If all goes well I guess I will be on the roof by 3:30.

Does anyone know the whereabouts of this motorcycle? We are just trying to find it after selling it 20 years ago and may have interest in getting it back. It is a 1980 250KX Kawasaki sideport motor housed in a Bultaco 164 Astro frame. The conversion was made using a kit produced by Viper out of Ohio. The mounting plates are stamped with Viper's logo. The bike was ridden by many years by Keith Miller 188C before being sold to a rider from the central or eastern part of NC around 1992. Please send me a PM or contact me via Facebook if you have any info. Possibly one more entry for the 250 vintage class if we can find it....

This belonged to a guy that races with us, it was sold to a man in his late teens eary 20s back in '81. The bike was in the Raeford/Red Springs area.
