Probably around the time competition Scramblers became motocrossers!

It's a cool bike, but obviously I've not drank the hallucinogenic koolaid here. Naked bike? ...as in crotch rocket without it's bodywork (ie: Ducati Monster, the prototypical naked bike, the bike the concept is named after)? This bike has a wheel base as long as a first gen Goldwing, maybe we should come up with a new category for such a unique machine. Lets see, big long v-twin with lots of chrome, great for cruising down the....wait we could call it a "cruiser".

If anyone asks I came up with that.

Nice "Hall of Fame" type exhibit at the Toronto International Motorcycle Show this weekend.
Some interesting veteran riders there to talk to as well.

The Can-Am and a blue sachs together with orange bike stands, after looking at the decals of the Sachs. These are some of the bikes of Helmut Clasen, a former ISDT rider. He lives in Dundas, Canada.

He was born in Germany in the mid 30's raced there but now lives in Canada, he had an KTM store, at an age of 75/76 he is no retiered.

But he has now less spare time then before, he is still participating in enduro envents, last time at the Ontario hard scramble, second place!!

I have also done competition in the 80's, (Trials), but I think he will blast me and I am 30 years younger!

He is a great ressource for anything belonging to dirt-bikes in the past 50 years. If you want to know something about old machines or events he should have an answer when it comes to enduro or ISDN or KTM.

Here is his homepage:
http://speedy_c.tripod.com/index.html

Here his photo album, there are a lot of old bikes and events recorded, also the rebuild of old Sachs and that old can-am,, an awesom job if you look up from where he had to begin:
http://picasaweb.google.com/vindurospeedy

You find him in the US Forum KTMTalk, membername: VintageSpeedy
www.KTMTalk.com

or in the German OFFROADFORUM, membername: Helmut Clasen
www.offroadforum.de

He did help me out with many technical stuff I needed for the rebuild of an old six-day's KTM 500 2-stroker from 89, I could even get original stickers from him.

They are Sachs Hydrocross, very unique and well working a Europeen pendant to the FOX Airshocks or the Fournales shocks from France.

Shocks: Sachs Hydrocross: http://enduretro.free.fr/SACHS-HYDRO.html
(only how to repair, they are out of production)

Shocks: Fournales: www.fournales.fr
(the website of Fournales, a former Bultaco engineer, that now produces airshocks for all kind of bikes)

PSchrauber screwed with this post 01-09-2011 at 04:29 PM Reason: Edited a bazillion times due to translation issues I have

I was at the show too. Huge place.
That hall (vintage bikes) is one of five used there. Heré's a couple pics of Helmet's during show setup before things got busy.

OK, these are cool. I don't suppose Fournales has a US distributor?

Someone that import these to the U.S., I don't know, I think not, but I'am not up to date where to buy Europeen thing's in the U.S.

You can send him an E-mail and tell him what you need and I think you will get a reply.

If I don't get the stuff here in Europe I do the same call or E-mail the seller where ever he is and then I normally get it. You will probably have to pay some custom fee and tax and of course the shipping.
