i was watching the Charles Bronson Movie "The Mechanic"  released in approx 1972 the other night
there is a few scenes with some great looking Red tank Husky's in them (4 identical bikes in total)
anyone know what models they are?

i'm guessing WR400 as i know nothing about Husky's?

yes i recall that resto thread. we also lost some of Docs Resto's, he amazes me with what he can do with just many hours of labour
polishing and keeping to a budget, a bloke with lots of patience.

for some reason it remnds me of the stories i heard when i was racing speedway.....apparently old timers used to remove the needle from their carb completely as speedway is wide open at all times (if you can ride)

only 1 reason to take the needle out
NITRO

yeah i heard that story too, the sponge soaked in nitro in the slide and when it went to the stopper on top of carb
the nitro was released..... don't know if that one is true as where would it go as it was captive at top of carb ?????

I have one on my 86 500CR engine and it works great, easy to kick start or bump start and easy to set up once you read the instructions.
Tony.

Tony is your 86 500CR a Honda or Husky ?

CD3 was definitely at Barrabool. first 2 were at Kyneton in approx 2001,2002 so i think CD3 was 2003.

 i know CD4 at Broadford was 2007 as i have pics and dates there was a few years between CD3 and CD4 due to Ray's passing.

i have been a bit quiet on here of late, but then again so has many others.

i just got to thinking when did the forum start, it has a history i'm guessing back to 2000's era, it got hacked by the Ottomans and others from memory. its glory days of high activity are past due to other media (like spacebook) buts its always been a great resource of collective knowledge.

i miss the incredible resto's that members like Doc used to post up, the suzuki footpeg thread,
the "VMX version of war and piece" - The Sprite/alron saga and other crazy stuff.

it possible you were expecting too much from a 50 year old 2T?

after your 84' CR500 this 250 would be a land crab.

« on: April 02, 2019, 05:46:16 PM »
its gonna happen....... ::)

 i predict mainstream MX will be electric in 15 years or sooner, i don't like them as they sound like blenders.... but they do go.

the pollution debate will make this happen and VMX as we know it will become a novelty eventually.
