Re: Anyone else into vintage race bikes?

Sweet Bike... If you want to see some of the best vintage racing and bikes, go to Mid-Ohio this weekend. http://www.americanmotorcyclist.com/...otorcycledays/

As for me I have a couple dirt racers, and a couple race replicas sport bikes. Here are the sand boys:

Even though I have several bikes this is still my favorite to ride around town.

Re: Anyone else into vintage race bikes?

A local guy just opened up a mueseum/shop nearby specializing in vintage bikes.

he races vintage, and just outright loves motorcycles (except harleys, downright hates em) its always nice to stop in and see whats new.. kawi zx12-r naked with fiberglass saddlebags molded into the tail section (it actually looks kinda cool) alot of old cool stuff..

i like some vintage race bikes.. cafe racers are pretty neat

Re: Anyone else into vintage race bikes?

Wow. Glad to see a new section has opened up on GDC. Vintage bikes (not just cafe racers) are quite popular.

For any Canadians on the site, try visiting www.vrra.ca (Vintage Road Racing Association).

Any questions - just give a hollar at old jackbird_xx (yes, that's me!)

Cheers.

Re: Anyone else into vintage race bikes?

Not sure if you will call it a vintage but I'm trying to import a yellow 85 gsxr 400 and a rc30. Hope it goes well

Re: Anyone else into vintage race bikes?

I really like old school racers too ....

And good luck importing that GSXR 400. I tried to do that awhile back and it was just to much of a hassle... Which can also be translated into; it costs too damn much at the time to get everything in order and get it here .....LOL. ..
