I like the mix of parts they used some from a certain 550F.
A mix of SOHC parts and DOHC parts.
A few from the corner of my garage.
The paint work was done by our very own Mr Joe Hartman.
The seat from our favorite man in charge of posterior protection.Ralph V


I must say though ,that the best part of the build was welcoming our youngest member and fellow team mate.Matt JR.

the 50cc engine
shit a pair of weedwacker motors and bicycle wheels, i can already see a vague design in my head for this, use disc brakes on the opposite side of the engines on the hubs...the potential for injury is almost limitless

and definately more fun than a gokart

Bike looks good Gus. From the little bit that I talked to him at Road America it seems like Matt Jr has his shit together. Good to see someone his age into old bikes and not just interested in the latest greatest sportbikes.

Those are clubman style bars.

They Bolt on,change the cables and hoses.(Sounds easier than it is )but I'm with you they are cool and the black just works.

When changing bars, is just re-routing cables an option or is replacement a must?

I've re routed many but sometimes it looks untidy or can cause binding issues with cables.

Caution must be taken in regards to turning and stretching the throttle cable.
