88cc race head and stock Honda 3 speed auto. Needs more power at these altitudes.....
Good for you, mate. That looks awesome. A friend of mine flew his Honda C90 out to Malaysia and rode it home to London. Granted, his head isn't quite on straight but it does show that the perception that we need a bigger bike is woefully incorrect.
nice setup and pics!
That looks like fun. Kind of a mini me sort of thing going on.
what area are the pics taken. i live close to the sierras and ride there about once a week.
Thanks all. Its fun. This is the 8th custom mini bike I have built. As you can imagine, the 8 inch wheels don't exactly glide over the obstacles like a bigger bike but it makes a fun and challenging ride.
These pics were taken between 6000 and 8000 feet near Fordyce Lake. About 40 miles North East of Lake Tahoe.
Bad ass, I've always wanted to put a baja designs lighting kit, a bigger tank, and some wolfman luggage on my BBR pit bike. It's got the 88cc high compression top end, 107 crank, I've added a manual clutch, SP-5 front fork, extended swing arm, BBR frame, billet wheels, I could go on and on..
I've got 3 2003 XR50's that I just will not get rid of.
I raced them semi professionally locally for a few years, that was the most fun I think I've ever had on two wheels.
I had one for each class, spec class, modified, and unlimited. (49cc, 88cc, 107cc)
It would be entertaining to see how far I could get on a pit bike. What a freaking blast!
Those old Hondas are cool but in the uk no z50 were road legal and they have become very costly to by. I was going to get a cfr70 copy with 12inch or 14inch wheels and 140cc or 150cc motor so it be fun for dirt tracks ect but the 5l tank are just to small
got a few Z50's myself, great fun for running over to the shop / pub or have the kids cruising around....
your not the only monkey bike adventure rider there are a few of us around hes me in tasmaina , and cape York and snowy montains
Here are a few other mini thumpers I have built. All street legal except the yellow Z50.
So I have to ask, is a Grom on your "to-do" list?
Sweet.I am awaiting the arrival of the Grom in the US.I am considering it for the TAT and BRT.Of course I will do the BBK and farkle the bike out for my needs.Going with ultra lite camp gear and getting a good hammock and assocciated gear.It'll be a blast.Love being in isolation outdoors.
Oh hell yeah! I don't know if I can get one in CA but I will have one eventually...
What size frame is the white pit bike would it be crf70 size or just a crf50 size
That was a 2003 XR50 frame that was converted to enduro. Impossible to convert in CA anymore....that I am aware of.
ok thats kind of far. i live about a half hour from yosemite.
It is supposed to be CA emissions approved.The Grom is a little bigger than the older CT50/70 monkey bikes.There are already a lot of mod for them including a 200cc BBK but it ain't cheap and requires a special engine case and head to make it all work.The forum below is the best place to start for mods.These bikes are based on the MSX125.

I guess I am way behind the eight ball. I knew about the MSX125 but I had never heard of the Grom until today. I called my local dealership as soon as I new what was what. Closed on Mondays.
