Yeah Frosty, there is your dream bike, a 73 TM400!. It looks pretty much all there, you dont have to go hunting for much parts, would be a good project. Might be your only chance to grab one?

I would like to give my full support to the comments by Firko in the praise of the event and the running of the event and also support his thanks to the sponsors, add to that the supporters and fellow riders for the serious yet fun attitude shown over the three days of a fantastic event.
I last competed in a National Motocross Titles in 1972 at Owen Park Wallen in Victoria and still remember the similar fantastic buzz, support and mateship shown throughout that event ( I had a new Malcolm Davis Pursang then, so I needed support) and the late Bert Flood gave it to me, even though I was only a C grader.
Come on Broadford, I can't wait and I am sure most people who attended will feel the same, thanks again to all involved in making Conondale the great success it was and what a track it was !!!

nice tm400 I got photos from Hardex earlier thanks for that. I dont think i can afford to spend $5000 on one though it doesnt matter if I pick up a ratty one it would still probably cost that much in the long run who knows maybe i will fins one on a job tommorow :)

Hi all
The 1st thing that stood out for me was how good the racing was, the 1st EVO125 was a ripper and it just got better.  Well done Brad, not just as a rider but a bike builder.  
2: The bike's what can you say unreal.
3: The people, the "thankyou's" mean alot to the clubs.  I almost lost my voce from talking to anyone and everyone.
4: The pressure of having the track scrutinized 6mth out, shows people care about the event and made us try even harder.  We wanted the track to be as big and bold as any AMX nats track we have done.
5: Thanks to all the SCMCC & QVMX guys that put in and a HUGE thank you to Peter Bell the best Clerk of course there is.
I know It doesn't always look like it ::) but I really had a good time.    
Cheers
Noel

Thanks Noel for the assistance you gave Drakie and I in the announcers tower all weekend. You and your club blew me away with your efficiency and enthusiasm. Our sport would be in much better condition if there were a few more Noels around to run the show. Thanks again mate.

The jumps weren't bad. Even landing in the worst possible spot on Drunk's on an overweight pre-70 bike resulted in nothing more than a dull thud - no stinging wrists or any of that.

The big downhill and the rough sections down the back were far more 'taxing' on the body than the jumps (not that they were bad).

The good thing about telling the truth is that you don't have to remember what you said.
