mavrik237's 1980 Kawasaki KX 80

Information: I bought this peaky little monster after I ruptured my spleen on my CR125. I raced it in Supermini only, as it had been bored and worked over to the point of rivaling the newer KX100s, which it shared the front suspension with (1998 KX100 forks and tris). The rear shocks (yes, shocks. there were two) were jacked off a 79 RM125, for the full 8.6 inches of travel and the hardness needed to keep a 150 lb mini pilot from bottoming. I raced it only about 3 times at the end of the season, then made my permenent move to the big bikes, the junior 250 class on a heavily modifed version of my DS. I sold the bike to a girl, who wasted vintage riding boys on it until she could handle a 125. She now beats up on me at various off-beat vintage and off road races on her YZ490 framed WR500. With my new Maico, that can all change..... We dyno´d it at 22 HP but it felt faster
