    Yep, correct, but maybe some others might want to try. Winner gets a trip into the past as well as a migraine from squinting.

    There's an even easier method that can be used when the bikes are being ridden - the bikes leading the pack will be the two strokes, while the four strokes try to keep up..

    In my defense, while I knew what a Aermacchi 250 Sprint was, I really didn't care. I am not sure when I noticed them, probably at one of the Steamboat, CO vintage road races. I know for sure, I heard one out at the Aztec Raceway vintage motocross races. I was talking to Otis Chandler about what it was like to drive the Donohue 917 Porsche. Long story short, he said, after getting out of the 917, and getting into, I think a 993 Turbo, which I think at the time was good for 160mph, it was like driving in slow motion!

    The Heidenau tires look like they're more suited to cobblestones and sidecars than asphalt. But probably the best tires available in the proper sizes. They'd be perfect on an NSU Supermax. If I get another small bike, I'd give them a try.

    The front looks like a Conti RB2 to me, the rear I don't recognize.

    As previously seen on page 753 for $19500, the Tartan Turd is back on eBay, now with a $4500 discount.

    No matter how much money you flush down the toilet, it doesn't make the toilet more valuable.

    Maybe it's another one, after the attention from rich overseas collectors he's doing a signature series?
