65 or 85 Supermoto?

Building one or the other... any suggestions on which one? Mostly building to play with, but some racing would be nice, too.

65 wiill be cheaper to build (uses stock rear wheel)
65 will be cheaper to buy
65 can run in TMGP

85 has inverted forks (does that really matter?)
Anything else I forgot?

Thoughts? Feelings?

You said it yourself...

Go with a 65 (Kawasaki). Easy to find, lotsa parts.

TMGP & CMRA legal.

85 is too much for any of the regular TMGP tracks.
A tip somebody gave me on Endurance Racing...

It is necessary to relax your muscles when you can. Relaxing your brain is fatal...

go with the 65! Put the 72cc big bore kit on it, and get the fork brace! No need for inverted forks for those! Let Motorcycles Unlimited Racetec the suspension, change your gearing, and have fun!
