way different suspension, frames and tires back then...
notice the straight up tuck and heads to the outside on turns... no knee pucks needed as no one hung off with knees out back then...

50cc gp racing can be fun, come out to tmgp and check out the nsr and ysr guys racing...little better frames, suspension and tires and they do hang off and drag knees.

20,000 RPM 100mph and only about 11 horsepower. From what I have been reading some of these bikes had 10 or 12 speeds. they look like they would be fun to throw around a track.
