Pre75. Legal electric start and disk brake, full length comfortable seat, still plenty of stock and modified engine spares available*, more HP/ KW and torque than any stock 500cc two stroke VMXer, and ya can take a fellow dick head mate along with ya to cripple!

*This engine pictured runs 6mm overbore plus 6mm stroked crank and rods at 15 to1 comp  1046cc.... ;)

I may not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

It's a year late but it's coming together, have all the parts just need a week in the shed.



So it's a RM 125 T frame with 82 CR 250 forks , 79 CR 125 tank and KYB air shocks, will use CR 1980 plastics.
Only for Vinduro so I dont have to worry about Evo rules.

I remember reading somewhere that the old Honda 350 (XL ?) Super sport motors could hot up well, and went hard. Is that correct ?
Not knowing much about chairs, and big bangers Tim, that Black Wasp looks the business.
Good luck with the project Ken, which ever direction you head.


                                                                              Cheers, Mark.

Difference is that the other FrankenBikes are historical aberrations, potentially using many major components from much later bikes.
The good thing about telling the truth is that you don't have to remember what you said.
