You know what would be really cool? Collect a picture of every champ and I mean all of them.

We need to capture some history and put it on the website. Stuff from the early NETRA formation days, historic rides/races, general stories. NETRA's been around a LONG time. We should honor/document that somehow.

Very cool! Congratulations to the Champions!
Best part to me is when I look at the bikes that won, it is fitting. A True Vintage 74, A True Evo 81 and a True Retro 89. Perfect!

You guys deserve it! I hope to see NETRA use this champoinship to the fullest, for promotion etc... Pretty exciting, I think. CONGRATS!!!!

On a side note: The current NETRA sticker has an old school bike on it now.... Maybe when they update the logo, they will let us keep the current Vintage one as our own? Classic bikes, classy bunch of guys. :biggrin :shades:

I would like for this to happen. New more generic NETRA logo, and the current one becoming the Vintage logo. :thumbsup:

It is a bit of a mutt. Bultaco was also famous for using up parts and constant changes. The gas tank is not the original.
