i still have a bunch more to build - i'm in the middle of a 134 project, but have to build an early lobito 125 that i'm putting a 167 motor in and making a street bike out of it...should be a rocket... and i have 2 more 67's and 2 68's to do.. i'm always looking for parts bikes to cobble together...
Well that Lobito should be a neat bike! I would caution that if the bike has a rubber bushing in the swing arm the handling can get a bit exciting when ridden in "maximum attack" mode. In normal riding the bikes are excellent handling machines. With the 250cc motor my guess is you should be able to pull away from anything on a tight twisty road!
