It has a Powroll stroker 218 motor, MX suspension and brakes and is street legal. It can embarass pretty much anything in the tight woods and with the 6 speed wide ratio trans will cruise 55 without stress. I think its the best bike Honda never built. Ironicly its 95% stock Honda parts bolted to a custom frame, something Honda could have easily done.
This bike need it's own thread!
The low tech/ low weight concept makes total sense to me. I'd much rather have something along these lines than something with a on-the edge motor, water-cooled, etc.& all the extra junk that goes with it.
I'll be interested in your new, lighter frame.
Thanks for sharing this.
