  1. I found this picture in an ABA Action Newsletter April 1981. Article was of the 1st Canadian ABA National sponsored by Kuwahara February 7th & 8th, 1981. Darrell Young won 14 Expert and 13 &14 Trophy Dash riding for RRS.
  2. abombdrummer on ebay or abombone on the Museum can help you out with the decals.
  3. I have seen these headtube decals on late 1981 ZF-1s.
  4. All Mail Delivery has been suspended. Canada Post cannot predict how long the current labour situation will last. It is best if you use Fedex, DHL or UPS to ship to Canada.
  5. I totally agree with JJ. Early in my racing career I was using Smoker chains but at the LBS I worked at, the owner who was a champion road racer in Europe told me to use a Sedis Sport chain. He told me it was lighter and cheaper than the Smoker chain. I thought I was the only one who knew about this little secret but I just learned in the last two years that Sedis 3/32 chains was very popular.
  6. When I started racing seriously I kept a note book with what gearing I used for each track and how I did. It was a great way to keep notes. There were always factors of what the track conditions were. For example indoor dirt tracks were always different because of the type of dirt that was brought in. I remember in one of the tracks the front straight away was so soft that racers were having trouble with their 44/16 gearing. I went to a 39/16 and holeshotted three or more bike lengths infront of everyone. In the final turns when everyone caught up to me I stuck my elbows and leg out so no one will pass me. My theory BITD was "I maybe slow but I am ahead of you!"
  7. Does anyone know what year these Panaracer came out???
  8. Thanks guys! It rides pretty good. Does anyone know when these Panaracers tires were introduced?
  9. I had a great find today. Paid top $$$$. Great survivor condition. Panaracers still have release powder on them. Mint Oakley .5's. Serial number is B199. I don't know alot of info on Big Tubes since I retired before they were introduced. If any of you well knowledged people out there can school me on these bikes.
  10. I know that someone here will know this question. Can someone tell me if Cheng Shin Snakebelly tires are original old school tires or are they modern copies? I don't remember seeing them back in the day.
  11. Here is my old Bear Development Gear Bag from 1981.
  12. The cones and nuts are a different thread pitch than Campagnolo. Front and rear hardware are different. I purchased Titron Axles from Alan McCorkle. He had the proper NOS axles that I could use the original Dura Ace cones and lock nuts. For the swivel axle nuts it was a bit of a problem though. I went from bike shop to bike shop and finally found the two sets.
  13. I don't feel bad about my garage now. Yours looked 10 times worse than mine.
