Vintage Track / Suspension for flat tracker
« on: August 20, 2018, 05:32:14 PM »
Hi all, the vintage dirt track area has been a bit quiet, but I have a question.  I'm putting together my first US style tracker, which has a modified 1989 mx frame, including a modified,  relocated swingarm and twin shock arrangement.  The forks are RZ 350 and the shocks are just no brand jobs.  I want to keep the forks, shocks I will probably change as they look too modern (blingy gold things).  If I can figure out the process ill  attach a photo.

What I want to ask is i understand you set up stiff for dirt track?  What sort of spring rates front and rear?  I weigh about 85kg with riding stuff.  Any recommendations  for shocks too?

Wanted / KX 90s SHOCK WANTED

Hi everyone.  I have a cracked bottom shock mount on a kx500, but any 90s model should do (including 250s).  Whole shock or just the mount and shaft.  Thanks

Hi all, i am after kx250 forks, in the 1992 vicinity, especially the fork inner tubes with good chrome essential.  A rear shick thats functioning too.

Im after other bits too so if you have other kx 92 bits i might be interested.   Thanks!

I agree, always thought that insults the customer.  So as a buyer i dont waste my time.  I dont think ive ever bought something from a person with that in their ad.

LOL!   certainly are different then!  Its interestring as the mags always say that the 88 to 04 are "the same", apart from forks...

So the site with the larger, er, nipples, would mean i could use them on the normal spokes?  So i could buy the normal spoke set (on ebay) and then  use these 8mm nipples so i could run the torpedo7 rims?
