front wheel is from a Moto Morini Kanguro . for the rear i wanted something with a rubber mounted sprocket carrier to make things easy on the gearbox . found out a Yamaha XT 350 has a transmission damper in the hub and its pretty light .

front forks i made myself . sliders are Betor from a Cagiva . stancions are from a Honda VTR 250 and have sliding bushings . i had the cagiva sliders honed 1mm bigger for the bushings .
made damperrods out of 6061 aluminum and had them hard anodized .
put racetech emulators on top of the rods .
tripple clamps are Marzocchi .

it has been a while but a little update on the bike .

engine build is done . i put a HPI ignition on it and it is a first or 2nd kick starter . very nice idle and it pulls like a freight train from low down . i did not put this engine on the dyno but it should have 38 / 40 rw hp
