Monte34, the 84 model has it's own set of identifying serial numbers on the frame and engine as does the 85 model so it wouldn't matter what you did to the 85 model bike the serial number will always says it's a 1985 bike and not a Pre85 bike, or at least that's how I understand Pre85 works.

2. We need to define whether an Evo-legal bike simply has to have air-cooling, drum brakes and no-linkage rear suspension, or whether it has to be made up of major components from bikes that are also Evo-legal bikes.
I strongly think that if we go with the former then we'll end up with lots of crap like the "CR Maico" that started this thread, while the second option keeps it historically relevant/representative (and in keeping with all of the other era-classes). Regardless, it needs to be addressed and a decision made.
Without wanting (or needing) to get involved in a deep philosophical discussion with Nathan, I reckon the Evo rules are pretty right as they are. If it's air cooled, twin shock or non linkage suspended and drum braked all is good as long as it's made extremely clear that all major components (engine, frame and forks) must derive from an Evo legal bike. That means no forks from disc braked later models with the caliper brackets machined off (Sorry Magoo), No aircooled CR500 or KX500 powered anything, No gear drive Maico 490 powered anything, no single shock bikes being fitted with twin shocks.

Common sense rules when it comes to  DT175/TS185ER/XT250K/XL185, type 513/514 CZs being allowed.
There's little chance of any of those bikes having any bearing on the results so why not allow them. The attraction of Evo has been the simplicity of the rules. While the other classes often get bogged down in the details, Evo has been a success mainly due to its simplicity. The rules are easy to understand and if they're followed religiously by both racer and scrutineer, it's easy to maintain a reasonably trouble free class. The only "problems" seem to be overseas or from racers trying to replicate "works bikes" using inelligible components.

You know Mark I always wondered what would happen is a brace DT175s and a couple or ER185 suzukis started turning up to the 250 EVOs - Id be watching for sure, would be good racing between them (or am I a little weird)?
