Looking to do the RM fork conversion. Does anyone know of someone wanting to sell the front end from a RM250 or 125 after 1999 model year?
It is a direct bolt on to the DR frame so it is a no brainer. If I could find a set in good working order I would be ahead of the game.

Since it is the left leg that is leaking I had to stop riding it as it leaked all over the brakes.

Should be plenty on fleabay.Did'nt know it was a bolt on deal,but I never looked in to it.

That little blue scoot sure has made the rounds within the Raleigh-Fayetteville gang. Glad to see it stayed close to home and got some proper numbering. Can't go wrong with blue and orange stuff.

Circles?

Got a ton of stuff going on and I keep saying I'm going to do a tour at the Outback with the Man, the myth the Legend... Trailboss, But it won't be this weekend...... Instead we're doing an open practice at Tar Heel Speedway this Saturday till around 4, then we are gonna load the bikes and do an "exhibition" race at Fayetteville Motor Speedway. It's 4/10ths of a mile and they are gonna let us ride between the hot laps and qualifying. Working on an eastern NC series... Come on out if you getta chance.

The one in the background is the one you are thinking of.I picked it up for an old riding buddy of mine.This one had been beat on by a 20 something year-old moto dude.It cleaned up good.

"The committee" was discussing your absence yesterday.It was decided that "the committee" should travel to Tarheel and verify your excuse before "pulling" your card.But,,,,,"the committee" has been busy riding.

Seals would need to be done sooner or later anyway.Should wind up with much better front end.

That means I have no acceptable excuse. Only riding I do is commuting to my 2 jobs.


Rick,

Cool...both are nice bikes. Knew you couldn't stay away from the 2 smokers.

How about a race update from the 20 Oct Mid East HS down at OB? Just cause I ride bikes with no seats now, doesn't mean I don't care about what you fast movers are doing.

I'll be hosting the last CVOTC Trials event of the year on 10 Nov at A53. If you guys get a chance, come on by. We'll start around 11:00 with 3 loops of 10 - 12 trials sections.

In other news, Kent Cameron (Devils Ridge) is going to step up next year, with our help, and host 2 CVOTC - MTR Trials events.

That will give us 4 events in the local area.

Hey IT...We have a vintage twin shock class!

I've seen him in his new habitat exhibit at Tarheel. He does lots of laps out there (in an Oldsmobile ), but indeed has extensive motorcycle exposure.

I hope he gets to keep his card so he can sign off on a VIU sticker on the RE

It's all good!

Don't know where to start...

Ray, unless it's in a car or truck it's riding... Probably at a higher danger level than what the rest of us are doing.

Peter, YOU ARE VINTAGE IRON!

Boss, RIDIN' BLUE... I LOVE YOU MAN!!!

TW, I've got a Mikuni and a 53 tooth sprocket for the Bultaco so I could go there. You've had me thinking about it a lot.

As far as the deal at Fayetteville this Saturday it should happen between the cars "hot laps" and qualifying... Maybe 2000

We have a guy who rides a vintage Ossa and a Bultaco depending on the event. He's crazy fun to ride with.

If you get a chance stop by and see what I've done with the place.
