vintasge bikes in new stands

Recommended Posts

Man....I LOVE vintage bikes! Those are gorgeous specimens! :bonk:

So...how does a vintage bike ride as compared to the newer bikes? I would imagine the suspension is all the difference.....but what about the engine?

Thats cool. Me and my dad are going to get his old 1975 Carabela running again and fixed up. Anyone know any sites to get parts for carabela's?

Went digging through my Pop's storage unit a few weeks ago, and to my surprise what do I find? A 76 Elsinore cr 250...:bonk: Can wait to get it rebuilt and on track. :bonk:

BTW Nice setup you got there. I love to see the vintage bikes tearing it up.

please post more pics!

older bikes are sooo...different.

the engines havent changed a whole lot on the 2 strokes

4 strokes...eh a modern xr isnt really anymore advanced then an old bultaco.

most 90s bikes are technologically advanced enough for your average bear.

i hated our old xl 250. but we used it for trail riding and i was small.

but a properly jetted 2 stroke no matter the year is always fun.

      This continues to be my favorite trail/race weapon!! In our Eastern tight woods, power is not King, handling is. And this thing outhandles them all!!!!
