That scares the begeebuz out of me, not so much the thought of the welds coming apart as it exits turbo lag,,,

But the thought of loosing the front wheel down a pot hole and trying to get your nut sack past the rear tank bolt and washer mount,,,all as you hang on for grim life :o :o

i dont think you'd have that much of a problem with potholes Mick. going by the seating position that front would be firmly in the air if the chain held out

i just cant believe it has bids.

$1275 and reserve not met. i must be doing it wrong.

Gonna hurt is probably the optimum words there Mick. if that tank retainer doesnt get you then the turbo will roast your leg better than any chamber ever did and that pop off valve is going to get very familiar.

i have detested minibikes ever since i experimented with what would happen if i ran my sisters Deltek on my brothers model airplane fuel. Massive speed wobbles thats what happens.

My old man put his foot down when I mounted a BSA Bantam 148cc in my Deltek Grass Grub he even got my uncle to come over to help tell me that i will die if I rode it  :-\ they were probably right!

Tamer and tamer

Makes my CT110 powered Z50 seem positively pedestrian.


After flipping a TAS as a kid (board shorts, lots of skin left on the tar) you'd have thought I'd learned my lesson re "balance point" on 10" wheels..... SLOW learner...
