i went a lil overboard on my suspension....but my build cost approximately $3000 on top of the $1200 i payed for the bike. that is no engine work....wheels, tires, front fork conversion, disc brake in front instead of drums, racetech springs and valvework in forks

there are cheaper alternatives to building one though, that can still be competitive in mini races. i just didn't like the front forks and front brakes of OEM crf/xr100's

btw, that's just what i spent.....but you can probably build a decent one, and be pretty competitive for around $1,500 on top of the price of the bike

yeah, me and that red ysr50 was going at it for 45 min before i switched riders....he'd pass me on the straights, but i'd catch him everytime coming into the corners. next time, hopefully i'll find a better place to pass him so he won't have a chance to come back in front.

it's gravity, rubber, power, and a few other things i don't quite understand....the bike will actually tip over if you let off the gas, by staying on the throttle, it kinda pushes itself through the turn....hard to explain, you kinda feel it when you ride it.

Centripedal force. The wheels act as gyroscopes to keep the bike up. It wants to stand up.

Nice pics.

Tony, you said in Katy, the front end was diving down real bad. How is that front end now? Did you do something to it?

Great!

Nice inspiration for our bikes but I won't even touch my bike until getting ready for next year. My recovery is taking forever and mods for my bike are absolutely not in the budget right now.

Centrifical force and friction.
