General Discussion / Simons upside down forks
« on: July 12, 2014, 08:13:39 AM »
I'm looking to build a new EVO bike and want to buy the complete set of Simons upside down forks with triples. The same as what Brad Lackey used with the drum brake.
These should go very well with my YZ490 1988 motor in the Evolution class.

General Discussion / The mess NZ vmx is in?
« on: October 04, 2012, 08:19:48 PM »
Hi John, I thought I would open myself up to the full on-slaught of why you are saying NZ VMX is in a mess  ;)   ;D   ;D

Farrrk, if it stops all this BS, I have a YZ250B frame I may part with......geezus.....what a load of horse manure....DJ, you shouldnt be stirring the pot with the mess the NZ VMX scene your coming back to after 3 or 4 years fishing (I hope you put back all those undersize fish!!)....your pre 75 (sorry "Classic" ) class allows 75/76 models to race in it (and your mate who was the main sponsor of your Kiwi VMX series to run I think a 77 Maico AW400 against your legit pre 75 bikes and no one would say anything so he keep doing it year after year  ).....and you wonder why that class has almost disapeared....your pre78 class morfhs into your evo/twinshock and then you have pre 86.....what the?....even Murray Anderson says it should stop at pre85....there is a huge diference between 85/86 models....even TMBill agrees we have it pretty much sorted and you guys should get into line and follow the leader. We have a great scene over here which you have attended on occasion and it pretty much runs with alot of commonsence on the day...sure some peoples noses get put out of joint but we have a structured rule book that is pretty close to the mark and getting closer every year (and quite easy to read to see the do's and the dont's). Your lucky TMBill has eloped with the Italian Princess for the week but I'm sure he'll set you straight when he returns.  Now go and make Karen a nice cocoa....and make sure my 360B is covered up.

I dont believe that this is the case here and the reasons are many as to why we have our own style of VMX but the one main reason is pure and simple. Its numbers. We dont have 4,000,000 people to entice into vmx as you do in your state (not country). We have that number thoughout the whole of NZ and when it is cut in half by an expensive piece of water the numbers for each region decline dramatically. This is why we have slightly different rules and race programmes from yourselves.
And yes I have raced and ridden in Aust and have fully enjoyed the experience plus have had always tried my best to understand the way vmx is run over there and played by your rules.
Here, NZ, we combine some classes to create bigger numbers on the start line so the riders have more competition to race against and although it can affect some lovers of a certain era with different CC' rating bikes I feel that they are more happier to have better racing with all in CC's. This is the reason TMBill enjoys the racing so much in Aust because of the numbers in a certain era and being able to split them up into CC rating.
As for our "Classic" class which took over from our Pre75 class because numbers were getting small it now has increased in numbers and for the most part the bikes are pre75. The bike in question that you mention I believe will not be racing in that class anymore and the last time I was at a vmx meeting the start line for our 'Classic' class looked very good with all bikes looking as a pre75 class should look.
Most welcome to try to answer any more questions from you or anyone else that has queries into how we do it here in NZ

General Discussion / Purest form of VMX
« on: October 04, 2012, 07:20:49 PM »
We have had many a great discussion on rules, regulations, eras, follow on's and in the spirit of, of this great sport and I would like to express my personel thoughts on the matter.
For those who know me and my bikes I like to keep as much as possible within the era Im riding in (including clothing within safety perimators)
I have run meetings (VMX) and the rules I have or want, usually get knocked (softened) back by my follow organizers' because I like the idea of the true ERA of the sport or the purest from of VMX.
My rules are very simple, maybe a bit harsh for most to take, but then that is the nature of rules and that is probably why I always like the idea of 'obsolutes' no questions asked "if it wasnt made/designated/manufactured/available or out of era the bike goes up an era to its most modern part.
"PRE" means exactly that. "Pre75" no follow-on's, no parts from post that era, excluding comsumables, which have to be of the same specifications within the boundaries of the era.
In 1974 you could not have any bikes or parts that were made in 1975 or beyond because they just werent there. Hence, Pre75 means just that, no ifs, no buts, no could haves.
My arguement for any era to have flow-on/follow-on models is that, if it wasnt made in the last year of that particular era then it couldnt have been raced that year. The bike needs to go up an era. And it is the same with any parts whether performance inhancing or not. This is Era racing not "but it is the same as that bike racing". Sorry, but you should have bought a bike of that era if you wanted to race in it but you are more than welcome to race your bike in the era it was made.
And it is the same with all the eras we race, from Pre60 through to Pre90.

This is just my personel opinion and no reflection on any rules or regulations that any club, organization or country has in place at the moment.
Yes, I do prefer the purist form of Vintage Motocross.

For Sale / DJ's YZ125 noguchi style bike
« on: May 25, 2011, 04:37:33 PM »
I am looking at selling the bike I built to take to CD5 

The bike is in Brisbane and goes very well. A number of forum members have ridden this bike and may vouch for it.

Since the build  the bike has been ridden at 2 NZ events , CD5 , CD 6 CD7 and 2 Connondale classics  :) this is all the use the bike has had since the build probably less than 6 hrs actual riding time. most of the year it is parked up at Brads or Joans . Always starts first kick .
 Any questions that you may have about the bike I'm happy to answer. The tank has been repainted in white and red (YAMAHA) graphics
I'm open to any reasonable offers.

This is Steve (VMX247) having a ride at CD7

The tank now has YAMAHA on it.

It was a wet, misty day so I'm sorry about the quality of the photos but mud and rain on the lenses is just the same as on goggles. But everyone had a good day and Bill showed his true colours..... a 'greenie tree hugger'. Its just that the tree is now 1-0 KO, the golden gloves are held by the tree....  ;D

Hi John, just giving you an invitation to stay at my place and race with us wobbler's at the last round of the NZ-VMX Champs since youre'll be in the country, plus you couldnt miss the prizegiving could you !!  ;)
If you need a pair of gloves, I have a pair that dont have thumbs that might fit  :D
After the prizegiving a few of us will come back home and we can watch some VMX/real era racing on the BIG screen (projector) while having a few more beers, or is that BEARS, and I dont mean brit,ero etc.........
I cant think of anything that would be better to do that weekend here in NZ than be racing VMX with us Kiwis unless your visiting kiwis  ;)
The alien has eyes........  ;)  Has the Bindy curse stuck again ..........
