Competition / Re: 2020 Australian 3 Day Vintage Enduro (A3VE)

Probably a good idea to release any changes to the competition classes now. People will be busy preparing bikes under the current format (I was told by PD that everything was the same as last year) & need to know ASAP if the changes will affect them.

eBay Finds / Re: Is this a 'works' basket for '78 Hon CR250?

Standard components there. Hard to tell condition from the photos (they are prone to wear problems even though the basket is steel), but they probably do "work".

Yes, there has been some changes to the rules for 2020, you'll find the MoMS at www.ma.org.au Your mate should read the GCR's & all of chapter 11 at a minimum. He should also contact the local club he intends to ride with to check their rules as well.

Competition / Re: 2020 Classic Nats

There seems to be some undue reservation about the lifting of the 9" suspension limit to 10.5" in the pre 1978 class. I can't see anyone who has already limited (sorted) their bikes to 9" taking them back & the option to increase 7" (or less) travel bikes to the meet the 9" class limit (now 10.5") has always been there. The new limit simply reflects what some makes came with off the showroom floor & riders can now ride their bikes as they were purchased in 1977 without having to de-engineer them, making it easier to enter the class. The removal of the standard shock mount position rule now allows bikes with layed forward suspension (1975 Honda's for example) into the class where beforehand they were relegated to the Evolution class, so even more bikes eligible for the class. Anyone worried about their bike not having enough suspension travel is letting their mind defeat them in the first instance. A low bike goes around corners better than a tall bike & as the saying goes " jumps for show, corners for dough". Any of the 1975, 1976 & 1977 models are all very competitive in the class & all have pro's & con's, bring them out & join in the fun.

There is a process for such things which is much more productive than discussion on social media. Go to MA website, download the form & get them in. Rule change submissions will be reviewed in March.

Absolutely fantastic to see Kenneth & the Heaven club put their hands up to host the 2020 Classic MX titles & no doubt the club will present a stellar track to suit all machinery from pre 1960 through to Evolution classes. The pre 1978 class has had some sensible changes for 2020 (see chapter 11 in the MoMS) with the suspension restrictions adjusted (no longer will you have to restrict a standard 1977 model to comply), making it simpler for anyone wanting to race this iconic class. This event will also see Heaven MX club crown the inaugural (first ever), NATIONAL AUSTRALIAN CHAMPION in the Evolution 4 stoke class, which is new for 2020 & beyond. There are other exciting things in the mix which will only enhance the event so make a note of the date & set it aside. Tell your mates, your mates mates (don't for get to tell your wife) & get on it to be a part of Classic Motocross history in the making.
Cheers,

Rest assured we (MA) are working on sorting all the CMX National title events (CMX/DT, PCMX/PCDT), however these are complex dealings. Details to follow in due course.

While there has been some speculation on when & where the 2020 Classic nationals may be held, to date there have not been any expressions of interest submitted to MA (in fact, none for any of the CMX title events, CMX, CDT, PCMX, PCDT). MA are working on canvasing clubs in an effort to garner some interest, however in the meantime all you guys out there, please do the same. Explore the opportunity for your club to host any of premier events in the CMX calendar for 2020. For anyone out there dabbling with the thought who may be finding it a tad daunting, please don't hesitate to contact myself or any of the clubs who've previously hosted the event to draw on past experience (I can put you in touch). There have been some subtle (sensible) amendments to the 2020 MoMS (to be released soon) which will only enhance the opportunity for clubs to host a successful event. Get on it.
Cheers,

Are you still looking for a fork leg? Have a mate who has what you need here in Aus. Please confirm you still need it & I'll pass the details on to you.

General Discussion / Re: Please identify this hub/wheel ?
« on: June 04, 2019, 08:33:01 PM »
Yes, they are good stoppers. The 400 in '74 had the bigger hub, mag250 had the smaller one, both work well.  I may have a "spare" backing plate, I'll have to go looking.

Most certainly a Husky wheel. If it has a mud catcher rim it's pre'75 if not, it's '75/'76/'77. It could find a home here if you don't one for it there.

Wanted / Re: WANTED - Rear shock springs, 46mm lD, for 4" travel bike.
« on: April 26, 2019, 06:49:09 AM »
I have some KX400 shocks (stuffed) with progressive wound springs. The springs look pretty decent, maybe look up the specs to see if they can work.
