    Old Ohio district 11 racer

    Im looking for a 88 89 I've been looking on line nothing.I raced a full blown 1989 Duncan race bike JP racing frame with no link swing and A arms with pep shocks 12,000 invested back in the glory days when Rs where 1,500 bucks everywhere and Gary Denton rode a honda cub around the pits and Doug Gust was a new guy from Wisconsin and Tim Farr had way to much money I was good friends with Ben Jackson's family his dad Sam was the best and bought my race bike when I started a family.I guess u never forget that feeling the first time u ride one and I want that feeling back my kids are out of the house and wanting to build a 88 retro bike back to new with more horsepower and upgrades.i have a lot of knowledge to share when the trx 250r was KING my opinion it still is.looking forward to talking to everyone

    Welcome aboard. Any plans to get back to racing.Your past R sounds like it was a sweet set up.Your future build sounds awsome. I raced three wheeler back in the day then quads. I only raced on small local tracks I always had the bug and stared racing my old trikes again.

    Welcome! There's a good amount of JP frames still floating around. You can usually pick them up for a pretty fair price.

    Any good old pics?

    Sorry unfortunately my ex wife of 12 years has all the old photos.ill try and have my daughters find some.Maybe I could just build a bike from parts haven't added up the cost of much used aftermarket stuff what do u guys think"?I have a 1988 cr500 that runs great I know the bike it self isn't worth much but the motor might be.I was thinking used aftermarket frame,A arms swing arm steering stem axle and new shocks.Maybe it's a waste off time like said I have looked at 250r parts in about 20 years.I know I paid 3200 for no link frame crome swing arm A arms and steering stem and hubs after 3 months of fight with JP on the phone

    Welcome Honda Hills!!! glad your back. times sure have changed in R scene. I'm sure we can help you find a bike (aftermarket frame) complete or just a frame. I'm in Cleveland. send me a message with your number if you want. I can forward your "wish" list to a few contacts that I have.
