Deal.
You know the other thing after looking at your pictures again is how close the surrounding houses are.
That is what spelled the end to our Sidewinders track. Every season you could see they were getting closer.
In our case it was apartments, but they were not near as close as those houses.

Gary Davis uses a really long lense. They are close, but not nearly as close as the appear (stolen from my right side view mirror).
Spokane County owns the property and leases it out to Joe Kopp. There are MX tracks, a go kart track, a dragstrip, paved 3/8 oval....
I hope noise and development don't become an issue like you noted.

That's exactly why when I walk into the old power shop in McCall Idaho the owner says "Oh no, It's Bad Willie".
I have that affect on people....

Last nights event... The Vintage Amateur guys seem to only want to ride shorttrack. Not complaining!! After going thru the forks, I didn't find anything wrong with the exception of way too much oil in the left leg. Filled both with the proper amount and got this much travel without going over a jump!! (See post #112 for the before) Much happier. A couple days after the TT race on April 21, I was so sore, I felt like I was coming down with the flu.

Oh, and the young guys in the Vintage Amateur class go much faster than this "Old Fart"!!! I finished 5th.

No problem! Yes, using the stock '78 clamps. The Radian forks fit right in!!

Awesome! I bought a pair of xs750 fork tubes and they are also 36mm so they should slide right in, I should be able to use a wheel from an xs650 and have everything bolt right up. We'll see though.
