Those are essentially a dirt bike version of the 50cc racing they do with the USCRA. I'd build a 50cc vintage racer, but not a dirt bike. If I'm going to dirt bike, its going to be a BSA 250. Badest Scoot Around.

aaron, i have a fender for you. i like the husky or a cz (chee-sey). that or modern with a ktm. the trumpy500 makes a cool looking dirtbike, but i just cant imagine anything making it easier to get that front end off of the ground. my xr will wheelie no problem. im actually getting pretty good at it. maybe in june we can have a contest. wheelies on it are fun after youve had a bunch of beers. i need to work on the rear brake a little to help control them when they get up high. but fun and easy.

there was grat article in roadracing world about the bostroms and the ones they race. they have some that are all tricked out. they have a track on thier property and they run em there. apparently they can bust some pretty big air on em too.
