vintage (1970-ish to 1980) dirt bike question
I know this isn't a motorcross forum, but instead of finding one and joining, I figured I'd ask here.:D
I'm just wondering about the dual sports and dirt bikes from the 70s, and the big question I have is "are there any differences between the dual sport (enduro) bikes and the trail bikes, outside of lights/other street legal stuff and maybe a little less suspension travel?"
Bikes in those days were not as specialized as they are today so there was not a lot of differences between the 2 types.
Now if you were comparing the Enduro bikes to motocross bikes, the same differences apply, along w/suspension quality and travel like you mentioned, and radically different engine tune. The cylinders of the 2-stroke MX bikes were ported way more for the top end than the Enduro bikes were, and had gear ratios, carb sizes, etc. aimed at a lot more top end HP.
