Default 84 CR500

     

Picked this up from a friend to race the evolution class here in MX and HS. It's a beast...

I had the 87 CR-500. Great bikes.
Should be a real treat to ride.

It will make you work, for sure. Puts a big grin on my face when it comes on the pipe.

Raced an HS with it this past weekend. It was an hour and a half of abusive fun.

Pretty much bone stock. FW weight, double base gasket, flat slide carb, etc. are needed. I have a friend that does Rekluse setups for these as well.

You must be a strong guy. I have never had a bike so hard to kick as the 84 CR.
I only rode the bike a few times, but if I were to keep the one I had I would have had to make the shock work better. I remeber trying to accelerate hard and the rear end felt as if the shock was switched for a ridge frame like a harley chopper.
I've never ridden a vintage hare scramble but I bet it's a blast. I'll bet Florida hare scrambles are full of whoops and tree roots. Is your bike have a drum front to make you legal for a certain class?

Has to be air cooled, drum brake and pre-88 to race my class. That is an 83 XR350 front wheel.

Race MX on her a couple of weeks ago. Won both motos for the overall, but the crank bearings are toast now.
