Reliable, the one time it quit, loss of 1/3 teeth on the cam sprocket, also cracked a fork slider completely 360*. It took the 49'r Enduro to kill it.
The Van Tech Earles type forks were soon added, along with a new cam sprocket & chain.
Sweet! What do I win?

It'd be a hoot to race today. I picked up a nicely modded SL125 about 15 years ago, and raced it a bit... good fun.

Amazing how guys would actually run small bikes like that in an enduro. I remember Jim Reiger telling me years ago that back in the '60s, he ran a C110!

I was riding enduro's in high school, the key was to hop off while still moving to push it over the top while still throwing dirt out the back.
Easy when your are young, @ 66, not so easy now when I "help" my TW200.

sweet! i had a 1976 RD400 back in the day. the 400s were so much more refined than the 350s and easier to wheelie. what is the definition "vintage"?
never mind that last :
The only official designation of what constitutes a vintage motorcycle comes from the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association, which even has two different designations for vintage, depending on the type of racing the bike is going to do. The AHRMA defines motorcycles as vintage for motocross racing if they were built before 1975, and vintage for road racing if they were built after 1975.

The Antique Motorcycle Club of America has had a
35 year year rolling definition,
so that’s 1982, I suppose ...

... I’m guessing the rolling 35 year AMCA
will change, or in six years my water-cooled,
fuel injected ‘88 K75s will qualify for
the AMCA ... I’m loooking forward
to my ‘85 Evo qualifying in 2020 ...

... the AFM has (had?) a Super Dinosaur Class
that was ten years old ... always enjoyed looking
at those race bikes ...

I’d say we’re pretty flexible on Vintage Cafe ...

Here's our '76 KH100:


About 4500 miles. Runs well, just need to fix a couple frayed wires to get the lights working again, and keeping it stock after that. Anybody have any luck using LED bulbs on a 6V bike?

It's great having an old bike that already works, instead of starting with a complete basket case -- as I've done with a project car in the past!

It doesn't qualify as a cafe racer ... in fact I'd appreciate it if someone would tell me what it does qualify as ... but it was mine and I loved it: my best bike out of the dozens I've owned. Some bat-faced f*ck stole it c. 1989 or '90.

Whole front end is stock-length Yamaha 650. 1978 model, I think.
