Vintage Track / Re: XT500, de rake? Better turning?

How far are we talking on the fork drop? Im guna have a play this weekend.

As said earlier just move the forks in the triples, I have a 77 and it handles great on dirt track.
 Also have a couple of 77 dt's, 250 has the original fork and the 400 has the leading axle forks and are totaly different animals in the handling dep.

Im not to concerned about original look and value. I always though they look like a chopper when you put long travel on them with the standard rake.


I de raked a TT500 frame years ago 27deg it turned better but it lost it original look and value.
The Flat track TT500 bikes in the USA are all de raked 25-26deg but this isn’t mx riding .

Geoff have you ever de raked a XT/TT500?


Don't forget that the later XT/TT models that have less offset in the triples is because they are leading axle forks so it is quite a large change

That would help with sharpening up the turning wouldnt it?

Yes the 79,80,81 TT500 triples have less off set than the early TT500 models

CD is great! but unfortunately it doesnt change venues like it used to. I cant justify driving from Melbourne to Queensland for it.. :'(


I have really enjoyed CD the few times I’ve attended.

This year there are 2.
1. Classic Dirt at QMP (new venue) May 3-5th
2. Classic Weekend (Ride) at beautiful Green Park Connondale (Venue for CD the last few years) June 7-9

2 questions.
Why is my early bird entry no cheaper than late entry?
Was I supposed to receive printable tickets? I did get a receipt via email.
Thanks
