    1982 Cammex Racer Found

    This trike was found and bought from a friend of mine and I ended up with it. The guy that had it new used to go to the races with me before the sponsorships came about(1983). When I started riding for Cammex I got Calvin to set Stan up with the stage 4 kit. Stan already had the fox shock with the durablue axle and force 4 swingarm. Someone painted everything gray and gave it a flame paint job at some point. Im not sure what I am goin to do with it yet but wanted the Cammex kit to do a retro racer in the 83-84 frame like I raced during that period. What you guys think I should do?Click image for larger version.

    Its a former racer so please do it justice and bring it back to its original glory. I wouldn't rob Peter to pay Paul, so to speak.

    I agree, that old race bike needs to be restored to its former glory. What size did that cammex cylinder make it, wasnt it around 300cc, or was it a 250? There are a lot of sweet old school parts on that machine, well worth fixing up. What pipe is that?

    i agree. restore it to its former glory. incredibly neat find you have there. very, very rare. and even more rare to know the history that the bike has.

    Ok im working on more pics. No, this is the 250 ---68mm bore x 72mm stroke if I remember correctly. These trikes with the stage 4 cammex set up like this run a dead even drag race with a Tecate with a kx cylinder, kx ignition, pipe, big carb ect. I am going to take the motor apart to see if Calvin ported this cylinder for Stan or if he set him up with the stock kit. I just cannot remember 30 years ago. I was there the day we put the kit on the trike but can't remember the porting details.

    Man that thing is sweet! I love all of the old race trikes. I really wish I was home. My home of record is in Waynoka, and I'd gladly lend a hand if I was there.
