true but wheels is wheels. dr650 will get you anywhere. Just not in style like a klr or a R1 or a vmax or a magna. If you like vmax v4 power you ought to buy a v65 magna like G's same motor feel at a lot smaller price. or a VFR 800 which is a v4 as well. Hell I would rock anything with 2 wheels.

Then here is the next project for me. As alluded to earlier today.

Project Blasphemer 2.0 $100
74 honda ct70 (minus the motor)

hopefully will get it running here in a few days with a motor I have on the bench.

Doh, you bastard, I wanted that. I even emailed that to Chris, he was gonna pick it up if the 'guy that's coming thursday night' didn't get it. Oh well. Good luck getting it running. You & Chris can be the trail 70 contingent of the 'gang' heh

FYI the 125 chink motors hate abuse and REALLY hate nitrus....seriously. After hearing a friends story about his, I will not put one in my new trail 70 freebie I just got. Granted mine turns over as well.

Lifans may be okay for putting around, but if you plan to hammer on it like we did with my friends, buy a honda motor.

Friend in Alabama gave it to me. It's rough, but I think/hope I can at least get it running on the cheap and then decide what I want to get into as far as a minor restoration or just powder coat most of it and call it good. It need so much little stuff, it's almost a resto aside from paint and the detail level really.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but is there anyone around Iowa City that will let me change my oil at their place? I just need a pan and a spot to do it.

I've got all the tools, oil, filter and knowledge...

My pan is in southern MN and I want to change the oil before I hit up the BMW rally.

I can trade beer or motorcycle help if needed!

I am in CR, if that helps any. More than welcome to use my place. I have pan and likely all the tools you will need as well.
