Hi all!

I just bought a '85 Wasp/Honda CR500 MX racing sidecar. I know it isn't quite HP but it is my first (of I hope many) sidecars. This particular bike has a great racing pedigree starting with Ralph Whitney who imported it in 1985. He sold it to Mike Burns who raced it for several years and then sold it to Dave Hennessy. Dave has won the Pikes Peak hill climb twice and was the 2005 AMA National Sidecar Motocross Championship Series Champion Class winner.

Anyone interested in some informal racing? My monkey is excited to try this baby out!

Here's a few pics

The original owner racing it - circa 1985/86 - that's Scott and his brother Pete I believe (Scott now races a V-Rod powered sidecar)



some of the third owner racing
