1982 Ricardo MX2

Long Grass find!

I used to race a South Australian made Ricardo way back the early 80's. It was stolen round 84 out the front of an Indoor Cricket centre and I was completely devastated.

The pics are Before & After.. It had been in a long grass paddock for 20 odd years


Its as much a replica of my old race bike as I can remember and done on the cheap, as it was back then. Although when it was stolen it had black tuff II's as I swapped the arayas.
