LeeBikeBefore.jpg (231193 bytes)     LeeWithHisThorBuiltRide.JPG (293105 bytes) April 18th 2004, before and after shots of Lee's Ride, a 78 CR250R with a few mods..  The bike was purchased from the original owner that we raced with back in the late 70's.  After a total rebuild of the motor in 82, (new cylinder, crank, clutch basket), she was stored after just a few races.  The bike came with a Folding Shifter, FMF arm, Fox AirShoxs, 80 Tank and filter box, DG air caps, beefier fork springs, and a side pull throttle.  Lee has equipped his bike with Dunlop 756's, widen the footpegs, SE Doug Henry bar, and Perches and Levers that are to much for my budget.  The kicker was repaired by Jim Hayes.  Other items that had to be purchased, brake lever bushings, rear wheel bearings, rear brake shoes, fork seals, all external seals, yellow backgrounds, Decals, and Side Panels, and a Gripper Seat Cover that is not pictured.  The rest was grunt work, removing 20 yr old dirt and chain lube.
UPDATE!...September 2004, Lee decides to refocus his attention on Modern MX, supporting 2 bikes in different series is very demanding, he rather
see someone make good use of the bike than let it sit, the bike goes up for sale.  Lee will continue to make an appearance at Elizabeth City on one of 
my CR's.

THE NEW OWNER, FRED GUIDI.........!

VMX_04.jpg (124268 bytes) Chris Huhn, the Man that got Mid-Atlantic Vintage/Post-Vintage MX started.  I found his former store and website, VMX,  when I was putting my 78 CR250R back together in 98.  Thanks to him, I got back into riding.  I will always cherish the competition I had with Chris on the track.
