eBay Finds / Rubber inlet manifolds, 2-bolt, suit 36/38 carb.
« Last post by John Orchard on January 22, 2019, 10:56:30 AM »
I just bought a set of these inlet manifolds (4) for the VM38 on my bike, the set cost $35 landed, so have spares if I need them  :-)  The bolt holes are for 6mm bolts but I files them out for 8mm's.

Thanks for that offer YSS, but I don't yet have the need, but was curious and can now file away the knowledge. I have previously wondered about it so it's good to know it can be done.

He was no slouch
this reads a bit funny due to translation

Over the years, the Cross-Team-Toggenburg got more and more members. And proudly in 1995 the most famous and most successful motocross rider in Switzerland was added to our team.

Walter Kalberer from Züberwangen, who wrote Swiss motocross history for many years. His incredible catch-up hunters are legendary. Walter Kalberer grew under the cheers from the spectators crowd beyond himself and was able to win even after a bad start or ground contact hardest race. His modesty despite all the great success made him a crowd favorite in all of Switzerland. Walter Kalberer was born on August 7, 1945 and started his career as a 17-year-old boy with sidecar racing.

Unfortunately he died on Saturday 21.10.2006 after a motocross training in Flawil. The Cross Team Toggenburg not only loses one of the best riders of the Swiss motocross scene, but also a very good friend.

Great shot of Walter Kalberer, he was my childhood hero on the huskies( many times swiss champion), later became  a mentor and good friend . Only passed away too early . Thank you for that shot . Could be one of the last shots on a bike with him . .
