Rally riders please note that there won't be separate riders briefings for you guys at the A3VE. If possible you should attend the full riders briefing on Thursday night.
Ask at sign-in for any daily updates, and scrutineering instructions.

Chief scrutineer Jamie Aked will be around the parc ferme all weekend.

just noticed this in the regs.." no gap between the rear sprocket and the chain guide, " How does a std 84 husky chain guide go in this regard??

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.

bigk's explanation is right, and hopefully the illustrations below help too:

This is the correct arrangement. The guide covers the space where the chain meets the sprocket on the underside of the swingarm.

There's no chain on this bike, but you get the idea... This is a non-compliant arrangement. This gap needs to be covered.

Overseas riders who hold a current FIM competition licence can compete in the A3VE. To this end, Motorcycling Australia has created an INM – 490/41. Such riders would need to notify their own governing body before competing. Further questions about international riders competing at the A3VE should be directed to the Club Secretary via email –

May 23 - 26: Australian Three Day Vintage Enduro (A3VE)

Toby Price's victory is a terrific sporting achievement by any measure, even if you have no interest in motor sport at all.

It was also great to see two other Australians finish in the bikes: Ben Young in 55th place, and James Ferguson in 67th. James also managed to come in 12th in the unassisted Originals by Motul (a.k.a. malle moto) division. These guys were both doing the event for the first time.

There were so many other impressive efforts too, and just finishing the rally is an individual victory for the unknown privateers who make up the majority of the entrants.


For Sale / Re: xt 500's Demand

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

"Docks & Station Pier" - Is that a trendy inner city bar serving vegan food? "End of a chain" - Do you mean a wallet chain?

XT500s are trés desirable for hipsters! 80-85 Husky, tell your mate to start butchering those XTs, they'll soon be worth thousands as "café racers"!  8)


Competition / 2019 Dakar Rally
« on: January 08, 2019, 11:07:24 PM »
Anyone else following the Dakar Rally this year?

Aussie legend Toby Price secured a credible 6th place on Day 1 (after being in 3rd place for a while). All of the other three Australian riders completed the first day too.

Some of you may be familiar with the name Steve Riley from the Australian Safari. He's driving a Holden ute in the cars division, and also successfully completed Day 1.

There's a very long way to go for everyone.

It’s been pointed out that there are no vinduro rules in the MoMS, and as far as I know all clubs running vinduros in Australia at the moment are doing them on a non-competitive basis, so individual clubs can make whatever call they like regarding eligibility for those. Even if vinduro regulations are added to the MoMS this will probably have no impact on non-competitive vinduros.

With no Australian vinduro competition regulations in place the FIM rules that have been used previously at the ISDE and A4DE for vintage purposes seem a logical place to start.  As previously mentioned, VERi has chosen to run with slightly modified version of these.

BTW, flow on models that are currently accepted at VERi events, will be ok for the A3VE.

As far as I know the classes for the FIM ISDE Vintage Trophy were used as a starting point, and adjusted slightly. I believe these same FIM rules were used for the vintage bikes at the A4DE this year as well, and there wasn’t a pre 95 class there either.
