Pit bike project
 
I got this little 50cc pit bike that wasn't running for $200. I put about $30 into it, and fixed up pretty nice. I'm going to give it to my girlfriends neice for Christmas. Here are the before and after pictures.

Cool

brett33 12-06-2011 12:31 PM

no way.. really $30?
props.

wakeworld 12-06-2011 1:02 PM

You really know how to stretch your dollars! :) Is that a Chinese knock off of a Honda XR50?

bendow 12-06-2011 2:02 PM

Actually, it was more like a little over $40. I replaced the swingarm bearings, and the graphics were $28. Already had the paint.

Yea, it's the Chinese clone of the Honda. I used a manual from the Honda monkey engine for the valve clearnaces...identical.

Not a true pit bike but it will be this coming spring when I move my son up to a CRF150. It's a 65 bored to a 72. Gotta love KTM, inverted forks, hydraulic clutch, adjustable suspension. This little bike is shockingly fast!

bendow 12-08-2011 12:56 PM

Nice mini motard! I love supermoto's. My DRZ440 supermoto had a crank bearing failure. Now I'm trying to decide if I should put a stroker in it, or part it out and get a KTM 690 SMC...I love those bikes.

The kid and I are both into racing them. It's a total blast!

bendow 12-08-2011 1:50 PM

That's a damn good looking bike. I'm pretty sure I've seen you post pics of it before. I wish there was an SM track here in San Antonio. Here's a video of the local hooligan crew.

Here's the little monster I got rid of two weeks ago. Pitster Pro 140, 4 speed with a clutch, oil cooler, inverted forks, piggy back rear shock. It will hit 60 mph before you know and it was all torque. I might of had more fun on this little bike bang bars with friends than any of my big bikes.

And bought for 500 in perfect shape then sold it a year later for 700!!!!!!!!!!!

That video has me wanting to sell my street bike to build a supermoto, but not being able to do long highway rides would be a problem.

You don't sell silly... you add.:D There are actually many sumos designed to run down the road all day.

bendow 12-10-2011 5:06 AM

Cliff, do you know Debi, aka Granny? She has DRZ and just recently got a KTM. I believe she lives in WA

I've never been into sportbikes, but a lot of the guys I ride with have sportbikes and supermoto's. Their sportbikes collect dust. The DRZ sucks on the highway and without a ton of mods it sucks power wise too, but the KTM 690SMC is pretty damn good on the highway...has a 6th gear as well. I'm pretty sure someone on WW has a 690...possible CIE Evan...don't remember

Nice work man... You really cleaned it up!

I started off on a 50cc... I now run a full-mod Kawasaki KLX-110 packed full with aftermarket goodies. Riding/racing these little bikes has been a blast, and it's very addicting!

Here's a couple pics of our bikes... The green #6 bike belongs to my wife when my buddies aren't borrowing it.

Bahahahahahahaha.... Debi Johnson. Deb and I are pretty good buddies. We hang out at the same track and give each other crap all the time. Now that she has a Ryan Pugh built bike instead of that clunky DRZ she's a hell of a handful on the track.:D

Damn Blake! Got quite a few of them eh? They look good!. I've been riding this one around and it's a lot of fun to mess around on, but I have to give it up...lol. I've considered getting another POS one and fixing it up for me to ride, but I want to do something stupid with it...like try to fit a 125 2 smoke motor in it....

His problem is the bike is a total custom. For that price you can buy a well set up crf or smr. Bikes like that one can hide all kinds of gremlins if not done right

I'm down to 2 110's (mine #320, and my wife's #6)... The others were my previous bikes.

The KLX-110 makes a great project bike! They're a lot of fun to wrench on, with tons of options. My wife's bike has a shortened front-end off a KX85 with a 14" rim laced on the hub. Take a look at the front brake rotor... It makes doing stoppies (and getting tossed over the bars) really easy. My bike is a stroked 165cc (which bumps it to a 177cc) with a ported big valve head... Doesn't seem too impressive, but it's only spinning a 12" wheel... It's as fast as (and maybe faster than) a stock 250F. I love the looks we get when my buddies and I ride with the big bikes... A 6'2" dude on a KLX-110 passing guys on 250/450F's isn't cool, but we enjoy it! Lol.

Here's a couple GoPro videos of us on our 110's:

http://youtu.be/6lheEDK_F1I?hd=1

At this race my lap times on the 110 were within 1-2 seconds of my lap times on my 450. Lol

I want to build a little super moto....that would be insanely fun. What do you guys start with for a good build?

stanfield 12-13-2011 10:52 AM

I'd also like to know what the most cost effective bike to start a build with is. I've had a couple CRF 450's setup for mx so I know them well, but am not sure if they would make a good street-able SM? All of the SM's setup for street that come up for sale in my area are WAY overpriced.
