Well, Ove broke his leg a while back and hasn't been able to work for a while so I like to give him hell about not working.

Nice stuff! I believe the Suzuki is a 1970, though.

:cry: :cry:

Here is a pic of Heikki Mikkola when he became the World Champ. (Hangin out with some old school chicks..Ove likes the one in the yellow..) And a picture of a Mikkola replica, a '75 360 CR Husky.

I was thinking '70 or '71 myself.

1991 YZM250

looks like honda copy yamaha with the alum frame :cry:

Great pictures! :cry:

The similarities between that 91 YZM250 and Honda's early aluminum frames is interesting...

Does anybody have any good pics of the 1983 Yamaha OW125 (AKA baloney cutter)? Its very hard to get info on that bike, other than it was SWEET.

Great pictures! :cry:

WOW, why did Yamaha get rid of the Aluminum Frame. And i wounder if thats where Honda got it from. Also did the old hondas really used to be a RC. And if so why did they go to a CR.

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Honda has used this name for their race bikes:RC.

In other words: Honda Racing Corporation= HRC

CR is just a model name like RM,YZ,KX etc...

If I'm wrong please put me straight! :cry:
