Finally got it in the dirt!

Post by pinky » Mon Jan 23, 2017 5:09 pm

After a couple months of sorting I finally got the MX to the track. Boy what a fun time! And it really makes you appreciate what the Racers had to go through back in the day...... Below are a couple pics- What the bike looked like when I picked it up and what the bike looked like at the end of the day saturday!

Cheers!

With that swing arm angle, I'm guessing a spring loaded chain tensioner might be your friend. You probably already know this but, if you haven't yet you should probably use a tie down etc. to align the rear axle, swing arm pivot, and gear box sprocket and check that the chain still has a bit of slop in it.
