Thanks for a cool site!
This is my baby, an  original '78 CR 250. Engine never apart original tires, bike maybe has 10-15 riding hours I have the original white gas cap but keep it tucked away . The bike has never been touched up any where still has original paint on the exhaust. The only after mkt parts are the fenders, the originals are nice but father time started to make them fade they were purchased from Red Racer 4 yrs ago. 
The tank is perfect with the exception of a tiny piece of the wing emblem on the left side when sitting on the bike but you have to 
look hard to see it. No touch up was ever done to this bike just a little WD-40. I raced one of these bikes back in the day but now I have a large red paper weight, I just like to look at it.

Take care-Dave Nesbit in Des Moines Iowa

Here are some pictures of my 1973 Honda CR250M Elsinore that I restored.
It;s before and after pictures of the bike that started out as being a flat-tracker bike, that I returned back to the stock Honda CR250M Elsinore pride and joy, using all NOS parts.

Cheers, Michael Australia.

Here are some pictures before and after of my CR resto.
The bike was owned by a local policeman who had flogged it to death as a kid and then parked it after moving on to a Husky Auto.
I paid $500 Aussie dollars for it and spent another 2 grand on the 
the restoration and thanks to guys like you a lot of the factory nil stock stuff is available once again.
I have restored an RM 125 T and have a YZ 125 F underway so 
they will look great lined up together. All I need now is a KX to complete the picture!
Cheers from Australia, Dan Gibson.

Here are some pictures of a CR450/480 I built last year.
I used parts from a 1981 & 1982 CR450 and some from the 1983 CR480. I just call it a RC450!
Peter at VMX helped me with all plastics and really helped me with the swingarm that he makes!
This was one of the early swingarms that needed some help...He went over the adjustments and now they just bolt right on! and 
work and look GREAT!
I think this is one of my favorite bikes to race.
Thanks VMX!!!! Dave Coupe' 10k

Hi Peter,
These are the pictures of my MOTO-X-FOX Elsinore. It's a 1978, has VMX plastic,
and all the bolts, motor mounts ect. are Denton Engineering.
Good talking with you, and look forward to doing business again soon.

1977 Suzuki RM125B from John Orchard, Melbourne, Australia.

Bike has been completely rebuilt ready to race, mods are optional Suz alloy swingarm, Boyeson reeds, Wiseco piston, Progressive 
rear shocks, 34mm carb, RM125X front race plate.

Here are a few pics of my 1973 Wheelsmith Maico; as you can 
see it has a 1972 Square-Barrel 400 motor, U. S. Sports aluminum swingarm, later style 125 aluminum tank, black anodized aluminum rims, and repro plastic fenders in the "Flaming Orange".  1974 1/2 GP aluminum hubs, 1975 side panels (which thankfully fit perfectly on the true Wheelsmith frame!), and assorted custom aluminum bits, including the Ohlins, round out the build.  It is highly effective, and has won 2 out of it's first three outings (the third was a DNF - ignition)!

Good morning Peter. I hope all is well.
I wish to submit a couple pic's of some of my bikes.
First is my my '74 Honda. Second is my '76 Maico.
The Honda started from several boxes and milk crates.
The Maico was a roller and terrible shape.
I performed all the modifications myself.Except.:
I had the cylinders rebored by a local machine shop.
Fast By Gast blueprinted both gearsets. Have a great day Peter.
Sincerely,Mark A.

This is my Honda CR250R from 1984. Its completely restored. 
But the plastics its still all original and no imitation plastic. 
The engine is completely fresh rebuild all new. 
For the rest the most is original. 
I still go to old-timer grass-track demonstrations and drive there with it.
But I'm lucky that i may be the owner of this bike.
Pardon for my English is not 100% good.
