sure, there are the 125 (2-stroke) gp bikes, and you can easily make a ninja 250 into a track bike...in fact you can turn any bike into a track bike.

Another alternative would be a 450. Search here and on the web for "project 450"

If you have money to blow, import a RVF400. That would make a fun, not too fast, small, nimble bike.

FYI, search ebay, there is a nice TZ125 on ebay in Katy now. Ah...I love the smell of two smoke castor bean oil smoke in the morning.....

Disclaimer...I don't know who owns it, don't have any ties to it, just saw it the other night when I couldn't sleep.

Motard an option? Easy to pick them up cheap especially if it doesn't have to be street legal. Lot's of fun and easy to maintain. Usually can be picked up for a fraction the cost of doing it yourself.

In reference to the RVF400, I used to have a VFR400 and they are a blast. Generally, you have to keep them in the upper RPM range, but the handling it the s$%t. Reminded me of my old Hawk GT, but with better brakes. The sound of one of those screaming along is intoxicating. Not a lot of real difference in the RVF and VFR 400. The VFR400 is a copy of the RC30 and the RVF, a copy of the RC45. Different bodywork and I think the carbs were different, bt not much else; it's been a while, so I may be forgetting something on the differences, but neat bikes either way. Wish I would have kept mine as it was street legal.

Ninja 250 FTW! Great way to get in to racing, and there's always one for sale somewhere.

For not very much money, you could get a fully prepped Ninja 250 AND an SV 650 that's ready to race for less than $5k.

Chuck and I trade fastest lap about every other race.

I built that 55 bike too.

That 250 up there is for bonneville.
That would SUCK for roadracing.

As far as bodywork, you can either get Airtech or use stock. Nothing wrong w/ either, but stk is cheaper. I would HIGHLY suggest a Ninja250 to start racing. Once you learn to go fast on it you'll be able to ride anything pretty fast.
