There's a blast from the past. I remember seeing him at Pepperell (I think it was Pepperell) back in 1970.

All the lights are working now, and I'm ready to do some vintage dual sport riding this summer.

I'm not too fond of either of you 2 right about now. I really dig those late model H6's and H7's.

Missing from my group shot is a 1971 18M Gray Ghost 125, a 1971 63M Gray Ghost 250, an early 1973 Cappra VR with the old style tank in red, and a 1969 Cappra 250 GP like Kenny Roberts rode.

14 in all, and enough frames motors and spares to easily build one more.
I also have the NOS inventory from two defunct dealers sorted by part number in envelopes.





The VR is complete, but stored in a box just now and I don't seem to have a pic of the 250 Gray Ghost on my laptop.

A Norton and a Greeves battling in 1964 UK acrambles action. A time of transition when two strokes were starting to make their presence felt.

Here is a pic of me from aaahhhhh 1974?
I had just finished my "works" upgrade to my 71 34M King Scorpion over the winter. New Akront aluminum rims, Mikuni carb, relocated "laid down" upper shock mounts/with Konis, and Preston Petty fenders. The white frame had been painted black so it would look more like the new VRs.

I LOVED that bike, and like a fool sold it in the late 70's to move on to Hot Rod cars. It was stolen from the buyer some years later and vanished for good.



Bell Bottom corduroys, Jean Jacket, and a used helmet I bought out of the want adds in the news paper = Gear

Guys, This is probably not the thread to be asking this question but I am looking for the measurements for an oval Penton air filter from a 1972-1975 (should be the same). I have a '78 Hercules GS250 and need an air filter for it but cannot find one anywhere on the internet. An old mechanic I ran across said that he thinks the oval air filter from the '72-'75 Penton will fit. Again sorry to derail this thread for a second but I need some help.

Vintage Dirtbike Atgatt...

Bell bottom cords stood up a little better than jeans in a "laydown", but were just as heavy when wet.
A lined jean jacket was better than a regular one, but usually they were too hot and you had to leave them un-buttoned ...
Those permanently "borrowed" and second hand helmets were always loose and you had to reach up with your clutch hand to push them up...
Usually in a corner
Standard gear in the early seventies.
