    Just helping a friend finish up on a project built out of spare parts. Because we can, not because we should. I didn't take many pictures of the build but here it is closed to ready. It still needs some time to get the jetting dialed in. Hopefully it will get to a track yet this season.

    There was a father / son team that both rode Honda 500's stuffed in CRF250 frames in our riding area.

    Got to ride Dads. Way easy to lift the front tire if you saw a tree limb on the trail.

    Really felt like riding a chain saw with no front wheel. Front wheel always felt lite when on the gas.

    Felt right... Fun ride.
