Oh you want some 2-smokin' goodness??? We got plenty of that around the shop right now.

How about this:

1972 JDM Suzuki GT250, a direct descendent of the X6 Hustler. Upgraded wheels, freshened engine, just now fitting pipes to it that were made to the factory road race specs. Should be a little screamer that'll surprise a lot of bigger 4 strokes.

Or do you prefer a little FrankenBike from the Checkered Past Cycles House of Horrors:

1986 Honda ATC250R three-wheeler chassis. Rear suspension converted to that of a mid-'90s CBR600R. Front end modified to accept the front end from a Buell XB900. Tank is from a CB650 and the seat is from a TZ250. Just ordered a center exit tuned pipe for it. As it sits now.....196lbs. We estimate in the 250lb range when in street-legal form with that race built engine putting out around 55hp.

Smoke 'em if you got 'em, gents
A good bike mechanic only needs two tools, WD40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move, but should, use the WD40. If it does move but shouldn't use the duct tape.
