Ah, yes, a road racing thumper. Reminds me of the time....

(needs a low exhaust, though)

I like the high exhaust:thumbsup: Did they fab the body or is there a kit?? How much would that conversion cost - the tires and wheels.:thumbsup:

No one knows who owns this. I'd like to contact the owner to ask him some questions.

It looks massively lowered, and supermoto wheels. Although I have seen someone put Suzuki GS500 3 spoke wheels on a supermoto bike. any info about this?

That thing looks cool! A black frame and swingarm would really set it off, bet it's a lot of fun on the track.

I remember seeing a writeup about a bike like that, one of the those mini GP bikes with a Yamaha 4xx four-stroke stuffed in it. I don't know if that is the same one, that looks like they built it off the dirt bike frame.

I think I have seen the same write up you are talking about. It was an Aprillia RS50 with a YZ426 motor in it. The Aprillia RS50 is a street legal two stroke bike available in the US, I imagine with a 426 motor it would be a lot of fun.

That's a pretty cool looking bike! At first I was thinking they just used a YZ engine and then realized it's a dirtbike with fairing! I agree with the above poster, with all the effort they've gone to, I'm surprised they never coated the frame black.
