The other option besides the 260 is the 160(?) which can record speeds up to 100 mph which should be fine for vintage.
The AMB 160 is designed for Karts and according to the AMB website shouldn't be mounted any more than 12 inches off the ground. Many motorcycle clubs specify the transponder be mounted at the top of the forks, usually between the triple clamps. I don't know this for fact, but it may be that the 160 sends a weaker signal, which if mounted too high, could cause erroneous or missed readings.

Am I mistaken, or doesn't the pickup need to be at the start/finish line? Here in Portland ours is about half way down the mile long front straight where most bikes, even many vintage, are exceeding 100MPH. My thinking is that if a person wanted to tour different tracks, say with AHRMA, I'd think they would want to be sure they could be scored under any and all circumstances.quote:
I take the limitation to mean the transponder cannot read/ transmit at speeds over 100, so you just have to put the equip in an area where the speeds are lower. I think. and I think JAM just said the same thing.
