another angle on the Ducati theme...
All I can say Troy is oser
That is slightly overpowering a KX125
im in on this one ..... u mad gits
Nice one Pezz.
I have a honda VT250f in the shed that I am going to graft an xr or xl front and rear on to one day. I either seem to have the time or the money but not both at the same time
Yep, Pezz... power is a good thing 'n all... BUT... does he want it to turn? :huh
Here was my take on it (I found it in racing...??? :huh )
:huh Not even (Chad) Superman (Reed) could make THAT fly...!?

Holy s&^t, what is this thing?
Well it sure as heck ain't no motocross bike... :eek1
That thing would steer like a Caterpillar grader... and fly like a Norwegian Ski jumper with Mr T's bling 'round his neck!!!
Maybe with a 6 foot long rear swing arm and a paddle tire on the back, it'd be half a chance as an open class hillclimber or to shift some sand in the big dunes down at Glamis (So Cal.)... but fling it around an MX track... I don't think so? :huh
I guess I can appreciate it from a backyard engineering/built at home in the garage/scrapheap challenge point of view, but any bike with a top frame tube of that length and a v-twin motor hanging under the steering head, ain't really got "cornering" in mind exactly... :huh
There's probably a good reason why Daniel Sordo and Sebastien Löeb don't drive WRC in 6.5 liter V8 stretch limo's...?!
this might be an option for the more adventurous among us
Hmmm... like a salvage barge headed for tREV's place maybe...?
Troy the front brakes look impressing on the Duke too
They must be at least 200mm
I'm in the middle of my KLX build, I was just downstairs degreasing my RZ engine getting it ready to slot into it's new frame, I'm trying to organize my backup bike build for this run, and I still have to do some serious work to my 640 after it's last trip...
Where the hell am I supposed to find the time for that?
And besides it hasn't met the reserve and it's $800 already, way to much for something that needs so much work.
(That and taking over another mans project just seems dirty...)
I have an old honda vf750f which is leaking every kind of fluid known to man and it is trying to eat itself from the inside out.
What do you reckon could be done with that then?
I'm thinking a V4 dirt bike might be a bit interesting.
Sounds Perfect Joe
Be sure to post some pictures of the build
Unfortunately I don't recall the details of this bike, but I saw it at the Honda Four Rally in Gatton earlier this year.
He said his mates told him he was on drugs when he started building it, but it was very well done, to the point of looking factory built. It's almost too pretty to actually get it dirty...
Just a shot to show off the inline Four.
That is so nice
Just the style I wanted to create . . . . but torn between function over form . . . being an airhead rider and all :)
i got an old CB250 twin. put some knobbies on that and raise it a little, would be a fairly good bike. revs hard, and is not slow by any means.
I suppose I had better chime in here and say mine is coming along OK.
thats just to cool, I like your work trev
It even looks like a XL100 from the side
Love the progress tREV
I might post the 400/4 up to you for a weekend
I have got to post the FMF to you too . . . .
mcfear, get that mc250 happening
what do you reckon,
1974 cb250 frame, with an old tt350 forks? will have to keep the rear suspension as the twin shock cause i dont want to bastardise the bike as its eventually getting restored.
