Thanks, it's a lot of fun to ride. Here is as close as I can get you for now a short video fly-by on the Bad Buffalo two stroke with the Jemco chambers howling.

I like that a lot! I'd leave the tank alone but I agree with the exhaust. Plus I'd want different bars (something like a flattrack bend) and ditch the little bikini fairing.

Are those wheels stock? And it doesn't look like the chain drive conversion is included in their complete kit.

There are several kits that allow you to convert a 19" front wheel to serve as a rear wheel. Phil's and Storz both offer those kits. But on this bike, I am guessing that's an aftermarket 18" wheel.

Most 19" street front wheels are only 1.60" and rarely more than 1.85" which is a bit thin to put on the rear.

There was an article way back when of a guy who put an XR1000 engine in a CR, I was just mesmerized by that bike. Interestingly this bike is an orderable custom apparently based on that obscure project bike from the '80s, apparently I'm not the only one that bike made an impression on. When I came across this pic while searching for XRCR (what the original was called by it's owner) I was amazed how well the bike looked considering it would now be a 30+ year old project bike only to find out it was a modern EVO take on that bike.

Although truth be told this bike, well the XLCR anyway, was a marketing disaster for Harley. The Easyrider reading Harley purists shunned the bike as looking downright un-American and the sports bike crowd wasn't particularly interested in potato, potato sounding V twins at the time. The bike was a marketing failure, and now because of that are a prized rarity.

Very nice. As I recall, the Buffalo didn't handle too swell - decent and fun power but lacking in frame strength (as was true for most bikes from that era). How do you find it? I see you put a reinforced swingarm on it - cool.

I was wondering how long it would be before RYCA moved on to bikes they could make money on.
