    I got scolded for posting this in the flat tracker picture thread. And rightfully so. So, a quick search shows none of you were brilliant enough to have started one for scrams already. Post'm up; OEM or from custom shops, ones you built, ones you saw, ones you stole from the internet.

    ^ I have seen the rear-on-the-front conversion several times, and have wondered what advantage it gives?

    Scrambler thread in the vintage section and the first photo is a modern harley with dual sport TKC 80 tires. Second photo just a factory dual sport. Ugh.

    is in this section SIMPLY cuz is where the Café Pic and Dirt tracker pic threads are. I researched and chose accordingly.
    but, are the other two scrambler threads specifically for PICTURES or are they build threads? :dunno
    I guess not. :lol3 but I was expecting it. I WAS going to even put "let the flaming begin" beneath the pic I posted.

    and here's my next contribution

    BSA A10 Spitfire the quintessential, penultimate scrambler IMHO.

    Why not click on the other 2 threads and see what they're about? This is the vintage section of ADV and both those threads are actual scrambler pictures and vintage. Just add to them.

    Yep, you can count on complaints from some no matter what you do.
    (yes, someone will complain about this comment too no doubt. Unless me saying so will make them hold back)

    Instead of being helpful, like posting the links to the other two Scrambler threads, neither of which I have seen because I would be subscribed to both of them, just as I am in the Cafe' Racer picture thread and the Flat Tracker & Street Tracker picture threads, some want just to complain.

    Sorry guys, some of us are just complainers, eh?
    Being helpful and encouraging is just an alien concept.

    Now to find the other two scrambler picture threads so I can subscribe to them, like I have to this one.
    Can't miss picture threads that interest me!

    I think there is a HUGE variety of bikes that can fit the "Scrambler" identification.
    From stock Street Scramblers from the 60's & 70's to home grown HD dual sport builds and everything in between.
    Including the bikes already posted here of course.

    Carry on

    Har-har-har! :jack

    I searched and found the two threads you linked (and subscribed), AND this one for Desert Sleds.
    Subscribed to it to of course!
    Excellent, I have more threads for bike pictures I like. :thumb

    I can also suggest this thread for those interested in Rickman and all things Metisse.

    Hey look! I will even post a scrambler picture in THE Scrambler picture thread:

    My Rickman project

    [​IMG]

    Remember seeing the Rickman rolling chassis at the bike shops?
    Ready for you to just install the engine of your choice?

    Well, I didn't buy the complete roller but I was finally able to buy the frame kit from Rickman Motorcycles a few years ago and I am slowly finding the bits and pieces to assemble it.
    That picture was at our annual bike show where I had the only motorcycle entered, without a motor.
    No trophy for that. :dirtdog

    I am finishing the crank up rebuild of the TR6C engine this weekend and will be putting it in the frame for the last time.

    Finally!

    Well since modern bikes abound in this thread, I'll contribute my Scrambler...

    Though perhaps you should have put the thread in the PICTURES forum, as opposed to Olds Cool. :dunno

    I know....not old. But most prairie off road is gravel and dirt two track. Why not do it with some style. Besides...a klr650 is no lightweight anyways.
