    Joe - That's AHRMA's lightweight superbike class. Already available at a track near you. Or almost near.

    I'm trying to get the same damned thing going at OMRRA. Someday.

    Man, a grid of cb350's, cb360's, xs400's, kz400's, gs400's, etc. Would be so awesome. And affordable.

    WMRRA -

    Lightweight Classic Superbike - up to 550cc, 1973 to 1985, air cooled, twin shock.

    OMRRA and WMRRA vintage rules at least used to be virtually the same. Does that class not exist in OMRRA?

    Personally, I would like to see it a true production class. Change bars and fork oil and that is it. Given the age of some of these bikes I would also have a spec Emgo cheap muffler, a spec cheap set of shocks, apec set of Uni- filter air cleaners and allow rearsets. No swapping of wheels, tanks, or seats or any of that stuff. they are so cheap and available that if you don't have what is competitive or stylish, get what is. That means no CL pipes on CB's, if it came with points then you run points, If it came with electric start and a battery then you run electric start and a battery. KZ400/450, GS400/425/450, XS 360/400, CB/CM 400/450, CB/CL 350/360/450 It should be a real easy class to run. I would think the biggest expense would be tires.

    All you need is some other like minded folk. You don't need the club to create your own dream class as long as they have a class you can run in. Create your own class, with your own rules and run it within the club's structure. You can even track points and give out trophies on your own.

    No problem at all - we've been doing it for years up here with both Sounds of the Past (SOTP), a class and points structure that runs completely separate from the clubs, and our own 160 group. Though both OMRRA and WMRRA have decided to embrace the 160s in their own "special" way and have created classes for them - we ran for years on our own within 250 vintage.

    You can even run your own championship series including selected races from multiple clubs. That's what SOTP does.

    As long as the club has a class that the bike can be entered in, and your rules don't create bikes that aren't legal for a class, you can pretty much do whatever you want. I'll guarantee that the club won't care. You can even end up winning trophies from both the club and your own series for the same race if you're competitive overall.

    Yeah.

    People are so focused on their SV's, FU bikes, 160's, etc., though, that they can't wrap their heads aaround how much fun this would be. My plan is to buy 7 or 8 of these over the next year, get them track legal, then bring em all out to the track, and let people put their numbers on 'em. Then race!

    We'll see.
