22 year old CR500 racing....
« on: November 21, 2020, 11:58:26 am »
@2StrokeDan  Neville Bradshaw returns to the race track on his 22-year-old Honda CR500 to take on a full field of modern 450 four-stroke dirt bikes.

Get a beer...

I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

To ride a CR 500 you have to be insane.I had one in 1998.I had more falls than I care to think about.Just wish I had never sold it.

A collectors dream.

thks

Yes, the modern 450 4strokes may have caught up with power to the KX/CR's, but we 2stroke fans had the power 30 years ago already........ :biggrin:

Thanks Andrew, very lekker video.
