I have this build posted on a couple other sites. The most extensive build thread for this bike is on I thought I would show it off here too for those of you who don't like to leave home (ADV).

I cut off some of the rear subframe

Pablo83 09-05-2012 01:10 PM

I cut out some frame tubes that were in the way. I welded in a piece of rebar real quick to make sure I could still get the engine in and out then I replaced it with a new tube that matched the frame

What's the ultimate goal for the bike?

To expand more on Radian's question, I really like the look of dirt track bikes; they just look like they would be a blast to ride. My favorite all time dirt tracker is the Honda RS750:

I set out to build a replica a little while back, but I was nervous about the build because I really wanted to get everything right. Then I found the GR and I thought it would be a great bike to learn on so I started cutting it up.

Yup. That's probably the best looking GR out there. I found another website out there with more pics of that build, but there was very little written info on it.
