I Ride: fast, except on the road.
You could go up the Everett Powersports and see the finished version, just ask for Cedric Smith.

I Ride: what others won't
But mine is finished... well, that's relative.

Ran it at a couple track days last year - 5 seconds quicker than my 125 without development. Now it's getting some more pieces this winter. 450R head, 02 cam or stage 2, high(er) compression piston, suspension rebuild, etc.

While along the same lines as Cedric, I went 450X. Why?... E-start. Otherwise known as "easy" start. It made this project so much less frustrating. Pushing a bike up and down the pits certainly doesn't add to the fun factor.

Alan, you should let me ride that thing. At one point we thought that used to be my 125...

Cool project!

Anytime. As a former 125 pilot, I think you'll be amazed how ideal this configuration is. The handling of a 125 and the grunt of a decent 4t single.
