Problem there might be the rules of engagement, it has to be a bike built between 36 and 41 years ago to play :/Hopefully they will have more bikes come out.
They had a nice display at the Spring Show, quite a few bikes. Hopefully there will be riders for all of them.Problem there might be the rules of engagement, it has to be a bike built between 36 and 41 years ago to play :/
" If you have a Race Ready Classic Superbike, 1978- 1983 Middleweight, 750cc, or 1978-1982 Heavyweight
900cc – 1100c motorcycle, you can join us for some Classic Superbike Racing at the National Level. "
I imagine this year you will see almost the same bikes out there as last year, because it's not like anybody is making more of them. That's a big problem for the future of vintage motorcycle racing, for a racing class that specific participation numbers usually don't go up they slowly go down.
Soooo, what do you have? Send me the details please. I get asked for vintage bikes all the time and maybe we have a fit.Floating rotors date back to at least 1968, on Gus Kuhn Nortons with Norvil parts.
The brake rules are a compromise. The VRRA originally mandated period correct brakes, two piston opposed with 11" disks, but was petitioned to align with AHMRA and other vintage entities to allow modern brakes, wheels and tires... for safety reasons.
You will find these bikes now have 17" hollow spoke wheels, slicks and 4 pot calipers with 13" disks... which is all from the '90s.
These bikes are VRRA Period 3 Heavy. The class was built around the 1982 Superbike class; twin shock, air cooled four cylinders. Eddie Lawsons, GS1000/1100 and Honda Cb1100F. There are LOTS of them, the class is getting bigger every year at VRRA.
... if anyone wants to play, I have a competitive '79 GS1000 I could be talked into selling... just have to swap out the 6 pots.
