Keep it coming love it
1965 Honda cub and 2006 KX 85 suspension modified swingarm to accept bigger wheel and custom Tank, there’s still a few more things to figure out but it’s getting there.
Looking like a trials bike at the moment
That’s the direction I was heading kinda wanted something slim and light, if I figured right should be around 150lbs
Working on front caliper mount, being there 2012 CRF 450 wheels the rotor a little bigger
Front fender cut down from an old RMZ250f I had laying around and seat and post off an old mountain bike that was going to the dump. Not sure on seat yet just testing the waters lol.,
The seating position is actually comfortable
That's awesome. Much better suspension than what I put on my CT90 conversion.
Love that coffin tank too.
Your build looks good to I might have to go twin shocks on the rear also
The front is a Suzuki SP200 that I modified to fit the stock Honda frame.
The whole rear is from a Honda XL185 so I got replacement shocks for that from Jap Bike Spares. You can also find them on eBay.
A little progress
420 sprocket center welded to a 520 sprocket one of my big hurdles accomplished
Why? The output of that engine is absolutely within the ability of a 428 chain. And those sprockets are readily available for these clone engines. Many 1960's~70's 250cc motorcycles had 428 chains.
I went 520 because My rear wheel setup Is off a 2012 CRF450
Ah, that makes more sense. Is it an 18 or 19?
It’s a 19” but will probably change rim out to a 18” and possibly run some good trials tires once I get all the bugs worked out
the fenders just sitting there to see if I like the look
