Re: 1983 Tahoe Racing 24

This is why I love the museum, 52.5 years deep and yet another that I have never heard of, the frame geometry is classic.
Thanks for sharing.

Check out my 1983 VDC-built Trident, 1983 Kuwi Laserlite and 2011 Crupi race rig, plus the all things Crupi & old school scene in Japan threads. Always interested in buying used, mid-school race plates.
