Stock classes are more fun any way. It really shows how slow you are instead of making up for it by dumping money into a kids dirt bike. I hope we can keep our stock series going for at least another two years.
I know this thread is a couple of years old, but I'm wondering if (and why) the stock class died off.

We had round 1 of our local mini racing series last weekend, and had a record turnout in the Stock XR/CRF100 class. 18 experts and 8 novices. Last year's largest grid was 16 bikes combined.

the "stockness" of everything makes pics of the individual bikes rather boring, but the racing action was awesome. 3 wide into turn 1 (and 2 riders going down), then a full field of people to race against regardless of your pace.

I must have subscribed to this thread, because I just got an email update for the new post. lots of VERY nice bikes pictured. Mine is nowhere near that set up, but it gets the job done.

Actually "SlickWill's" pic from 2012 is from PIRC (then BeaveRun) where OMRL hosts the Eastern Mini Nationals every year. I was relatively sure of that when I saw the pits in the background, and completely sure when I realized the guy standing in the picture is now the President of OMRL :D

I am really struggling with wanting to spend way too much money powder coating a 15 year old bike, and just beating the hell out of it... I will always own an XR100 though, so I guess I could swap the pretty parts from bike to bike when one eventually dies. Hmmm...

Awesome bikes guys. Here is my bike I race flat track on in the maddog modified class. The bike looks pretty stock for the most part ;-)

I plan in swapping cr85 suspension soon for supermoto riding.

how much do those fork lowers, the new hub, and the rest of the brake parts run?

I can't make that mod and keep my bike legal for the stock XR class, but I have been seriously considering building a street-legal XR100, and maybe throwing a big-bore kit on it.

Either way, I think street use demands stronger brakes in case there's need for a panic stop. I can't be plowing into the back of a civic just because I have the XR geared for 60 mph and the drums suck... Racing has made me pretty good and using the rear brake and engine-braking to supplement the shitty front brake setup, but in a panic, I'd rather have a disc up front.

I got the entire MB50 fork legs on ebay for $80, the wheel is off of a chinese big wheel pitbike, and I got it for $50, and the brakes I had. I am able to run it in our stock class because all the rest of the bikes have disks (TTR 125, DRZ125) and I have the only honda. Also, there is a provision in our rules that allows you to upgrade old model bikes to be similar to the current spec. The new Honda CRF125 has a disk. The nice part about the MB50 lowers is they are exactly the same stanchion size as the stock XR forks. The damper rods are almost identical too. So you can easily swap them and have a disk front end. No need to have your triples machined or anything.
