Well, here she is. Got a coupla swamped 160's and some bodywork. Going to scavenge the best from both bikes to make one, get the one good motor running, fab up some rudimentary exhaust, get out the rattle-can to make her presentable and generally piss away a bunch of money I don't really have. Gonna race AHRMA Grand Prix 200 Plus. I'll be slow and full of mishaps, but hell, I'm going racing!!

Next year.

Ohio REPRESENT bitches!



A shiny quarter for the first moto-geek who can i.d. the tank.

Anybody got any suggestions for a cheap, strong front end setup? I've seen mentioned on this board that the 160 brake hubs are stronger than the 350's and I have access to a large inventory of japanese spare parts. Nothing trick, mind you, but stock parts from other models that work.

That's the bright side of starting from scratch--This lil' baby is a blank canvas...

The forks on the bike are rusted to hell and whatever setup I go with I'd like to run with clipons (seems like they'd fit in with the fairing better).
