shall be adhered to.
5.2 GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS
In formulating these Classic Regulations, the organizers have endeavored to produce
races for machines built using components available in the eligibility periods.
Machines may also incorporate components of a type manufactured before the 31st
December cut-off date or manufactured after that date without substantial
alteration. Competitors are expected to present machines with visible components
(e.g. wheels) generally similar to a type available in the period. All components
fitted must be of a type available and fitted to machines of the relevant classes
within the relevant classic period. This includes all major components such as frame,
forks, wheels etc. No modifications (other than those specifically authorized in these
regulations) will be permitted unless used during the period. Where components are
of later manufacture, they must resemble the original period components. The onus
is on the rider or entrant to prove eligibility if required. Valid machine card is
obligatory for every motorcycle. Any pieces considered dangerous during technical
scrutineering will have to be removed.
5.3 OIL CONTAINMENT
Oil Containment is compulsory for all 4 stroke machines (i.e. faired and un-faired).
