Yes, it does look to have a "mag 250" swing arm fitted.

Same rule for classic MX. You must not be able to get your fingers between the chain & sprocket at the bottom (coz that's what happens while you're riding, wtf!). Your Husky is not compliant (most vintage bikes are not). Easy fix, about 1/2 hour's work & $10 for some alloy plate & a couple of bolts if you want to do it properly, or 3 minutes if you use an ice cream container lid & a couple of zip ties (got just about every bike through scrutineering at the 2017 Classic MX titles after MA put the rule back in the MoMS). Finding an ice cream container lid in the parc ferme may not be so easy though. I have plenty of photos of bikes which have been done but don't know how to load them on here.

There may be a trendy vegan bars by those names, who knows. The other end of the chain I refer to is attached to a boat.

Plenty of demand for them down at the docks & Station Pier. Required for the end of a chain (where they belong).

There are no rules for vinduro in the current MoMS, although there was talk a year or so ago of a faction preparing a set to be presented to MA for consideration as a national title event. Not sure if they were presented to the enduro commission or not, although it seems they weren't.

I'll take them if they are still available. I've sent a message through Gumtree as well.

Yes Ted, the wording should be changed to reflect it, I will put it on  the agenda. Most people refer to them as flat slides but you are correct in saying they are crescent shaped slides. They are 100% legal for EVO though.

You're info is incorrect Ted, the CMX commission is as it was although all commissions will be/are getting a re-hash (some already have). Either way there will be a CMX presence within MA, albeit under a slightly different structure.
As for PWK, they are fine for EVO. The EVO rules encompass the "period" (up to & including post classic). PWK's are std equipment in the post classic period. TLS front brakes are also fine, once again std equipment for the period.
There is a lot of "false news" bandied about stating the EVO components must come from a bike with all 3 main criteria for the class as std equipment, ie: air cooled, drum brake, no linkage. Not so, if it is an air cooled motor, drum brake or non linkage system from any bike within the period (up to & including the post classic period), you can use it. Eg: you could use the forks, wheel & TLS brake from a 1982 YZ or CR as they are original drum brake forks within the period, even though they came from a bike with liquid cooling & linkage suspension. If there is a 1994 model bike out there with drum brake front end, air cooled engine or a no linkage suspension, you can use those components as well.
Ralph, if you have specific eligibility questions, direct through the MA ofice who will then forward your inquiries to the correct commission & come back to you with a definitive answer. You'll get 100 different opinions by asking on social media. go to the correct channels & get the correct advice.

KTM / Re: Marzocchi assembly
« on: October 24, 2018, 08:25:42 PM »
40 x 52 x 10 is correct size for 40mm Marzocchi in KTM. The wipers don't seat that well, you have to push them in carefully but it's still a bit dicky, especially if the fork leg has a dent or is out of round. You should have 1 x long spring, 1 x short spring & 1 x top out spring in each leg. Obviously someone previously got it wrong & put the "missing" top out spring in the wrong leg, in the wrong place.

John Titman don't sell vintage Husqvarna engine parts. Have you split the webs yet? A lot of times the rod itself is ok, pins & big ends are easy enough to get.
