    OK, so this is what we have to start with, some may recognise the bike








    First thing to do is to get the girl started, hasn't been run for a few months apparently... then to dis-assemble, replace broken bits, etc

    The plan looks good thro, I'm looking forward to seeing it with that Tyga kit on

    Are you gonna stick with the headlight in the TYGA kit? Personally id change it, but other than that it looks shit hot! And you got a good starting point with the pipes on that thing. Am i hearing DC gear too? Or u thinking of goin the BBK way?
    I love two strokes. Because they annoy the shit out of people. ^_^

    BBK / DC? Haven't gotten that far yet, i gather they're parts suppliers?


    Will likely stick with the tyga headlight, not that big on the look if it either, but I think it will look alright with a decent colour scheme.

    Doesn't look like it will put out a heap of light, but riding out in the country at night isn't what the bike will be doing anyway

    Ah yeah i remember now, knew you could get DC power valves, etc.

    BBK = no no... staying 250cc for reliability purposes.

    If i can't get "enough" power out of 250cc I'll swap motors, but I think it will be plenty

    Well, got it started

    Battery on charge, pull plugs out and give them a bit of a clean, and literally, first kick...
