I ordered up a 1972-75 Penton/KTM 250 air filter. It fits my 1978 Hercules GS250 air filter cage perfect. Thanks again for the help guys.

actually, dave evans, the rider of this olde stalward ariel told me the story of the velocette. its rider had had stroke and has difficulties pulling the clutch leaver. so, this has turned out to be his training bike at the mo, training his reflexes to come back...in the background you see an automatic husky, no clutch needed, but no engine brake either - which makes for some interesting riding.

great old lads on great old bikes!1!!

Hi. dont know if this is the right place for my question. got hold of a 85-86 ktm 500. it has a usd fork marked "k5 86 mx 85 -36" can anyone tell what it is from that? used the rear part oh the bike for my sidecar last winter. and now I have swapped some stuff for the rest of the bike and the idea is to use ktm front with engine for something else. or build a new swing for the hack and fix the ktm. or something:) anyway Im curious about the fork.

I thought that was an HS scrambler but it looks like he has built one out of an iron-barrelled road model. Glad to see it being used!

...the interesting bit for me is the difference between 'proper oldschool performance bikes' with both knowledge and money thrown at them and the 'keep it going on a shoestring' possee whose knowledge in terms of improvisation and on the spot bodging seems limitless.

i have to admit that i have a soft spot for the latter o)

...front-end is by bombardier/can-am/harley-rotax by the way...
...and would you please show us your monark, please?

2 time Catalina GP winner Bob Sangren (Hilltoppers MC) on the left and "Red" Ludford (Checkers MC) on the right. Legends from back in the day.

OLDSCOOL , Now I know Im keeping my DT175.She missing her stinger and now I only only ride her if a neighbor is power tooling. Would love to have that 1960's Triumph Tiger the older guys (Parker Bros.) let me ride at the sandpits.
