Paint it red! Red bikes always go faster...:blip:

I like the bling frame. Has someone chrome plated it?

Given my expertise, that's probably the Repsol I should have got.

cool man good to see your up and running

but in all honesty go down to an automotive shop buy some loctite....

strip the bike to a bizillion pieces...and loctite every bolt and make sure they are done up tight...this must be done or it will just fall apart especially with the cheaper mini motos..ie trade me ones.

it will take you maybe a couple of hours maximum but it is worth it to do it right and avoid replacing parts unnecessarily later on

No actually! it has just been bolted over the frame, kinda is better though as it protects the frame which is good.

Mark I have done a little bit of that so far. We should find a carpark sometime so you can bring your minimotard down and ill bring my pocket bike down for a blast, would be a bit of fun, your welcome to have a blat on my machine.

Have just taken it for another ride half an hour ago straight after I got home from school. The bike is running like a champ, nothing has fallen off and the motor is running awsome so far, it is looseing off just fine. looking forward to a bit more play later on. might have to go do some more premix first though!

Yes that is very true. it is in the repsol Honda colurs so no wonder it goes fast! whopping top speed of 55km/h with stock gearing

Looks like a cool bike. Cant wait to see it go. :first:

As for other guys who dont know about the minimoto racing, you need to come watch us sometime. Trust me....you will be addicted very quickly. You can get them for around $300-$5,000, depends on what you want. They fit in the back seat of your car too.

As for the size of the bikes, yes they are small, and you do need to be under 7 foot and 150kg. If you really cant ride a mini, there is always the pitbikes.
You dont need a real flash one, they have some on trademe for $800. Put scooter tyres on them, stiffen up the suspension and your racing.

took her up to the localschool after work today and had an absloute ball! I managed to pop a few wheelies and hoon around for quite a while before the weather packed in. Mentioned about the bike to my mate and straight away the bike HAS to come to the party tonight, so should have a bit more fun later on.

yes had to do a repair :bye:
got a small hole in my muffler and was leaking oil all over the back mudguard and rear tyre. and the bloody chain came off a few times.

My mate tried to wheelie it today but ended up going off the back, luckly it didn't fall on its side, only dragged on its ass so is missing a bit of paint , but I don't give a toss really. was having so much fun today until I ran out of gas a good walk from my house :slap:
