Vintage Racing and more.

I happened to run across this interesting article about a '92 EXC250 refurbish/rebuild and then when complete raced at a Baja 1000 race.

http://www.enduro360.com/2011/03/25/...-bike-project/

Really very good photographs of the process.

Great vintage race links rangerman!

Thanks.

Not sure how many care or are aware of the vintage races around the world.

This race is essentially the Baja 1000, but you have many more classes that go back
into our vintage bike era.

I just started the Norra about 4 years ago as
co-driver for a coworker's class 4 buggy. It's been fun,
although last year our transmission broke about a 100 miles
north of the finish line in Cabo.

Have you ever considered racing it on a motorcycle?

I have thought of the Norra on a vintage bike, the pits
can be provided by Mag 7.

http://www.mag7race.com/

I have done the 250 three times, and pre-rode the 500/1000 course too
many times to count. That was all in my 20s and 30s. Many moons ago.

It was aggravating tho' because, they just kept panning back to his bike there without its rider waiting to be collected. Even though he is Aussie he is the best rider out there.
