It really depends on what bike it is, engine size and condition. I would like my initial investment as low as possible. I plan on touching every piece of the bike.

Nice bike man, I can't wait to hear how the racing goes with it. I didn't think they did the Group W thing anywhere but the west coast.
This is the direction I would like my CL175 to go. Shame mine is not a sloper, but you gotta play the cards you're dealt.

Actually, this is one of the biggest ARHMA classes at Barber Classic every October. I'm trying to roll this class out here in Texas with some friends. Reson why i'm doing th CMRA license.
Since the 160's are hard to find them lately, we are planning an open vintage track days starting next year, and see where it takes.

One step closer to completion. New custom pipework. Will add a few extra horses. Hoping to have it ready for the first ARHMA race in Arizona in January.
