Keeping with the original thread, you could start with a clapped out TL125 rolling chassisLooking at these bikes makes me recall a Peter Egan piece about how nobody makes a good looking dirt bike anymore. I say that is still the case.
How's the vibration? Somebody told me they were quite buzzy compared to a V-Star 250.SSR brought the Buccaneer 250 over here, and I bought one. So far I've got 400 miles on it, and still breaking it in. I'm loving it! It'll do 80 indicated on the highway (75mph actual verified by GPS) with some RPM left to go before redline. The more I ride it, the more power it's making too. It handles VERY well, and is so far a pleasure to ride and work on.
