Congrats on the cool purchase!!
I looked into them, just couldn't find one locally. So I got my NSF100 instead.
See you out at Katy and TMGP.

AF1 in New B and there's a shop in N. Austin. Both are listed as dealers on Metrakit's site. If not, Billy at WRW can get engine parts. All the spares that came with the bike were from the shop in Austin. The main importer used to be in Florida. I've talked to them a couple times. Should be easy to come by....

It appears that Metrakit has "temporarily" shut down. I can still get engine parts (Derbi GPR) but looks like I'll have to hunt down some spares. I was told Metrakit is going to restart producing parts this summer.

Soo....... ride the out of it but don't crash!!

They're about the size of a NSR and 40lbs lighter. This one has a water cooled Derby GPR motor with a 72cc kit.

I haven't had mine on the track yet but the one I road before handled way better than my NSR. It's much lighter and you can litterally "flick" it back and forth. The engine revs higher and comes up faster. I had a Kitaco ignition on my NSR and this bike comes up just as fast with a regular fly wheel and it gets a few more revs too. I'm anxious to get it out to the Katy track and see what it's got.
