Well, been building on this for around 3 months and finally got It done, nothing like the joy of finishing a big project I love doin this stuff, but I wanted to build a bike that was like a show and go, so i spent some little extra time and alot of money to make a practice bike setup close to my race bike(which i will have pics of it as soon as i can make it up to tulsa OK to get my parts) but I went with almost all used parts to show also that you can build a full on racer without breaking the bank, only new parts on the bike are of course suspension, nerfs, stem, powermadds bumper, hubs, and few other small odd and end parts, but here we go

here is what it looked like when i brought it home from the powdercoaters




little more progress






trying to get an idea of what its goin to look like, or course it turned out alot better as you will see




Installed the swingarm and motor


Axle and wave rotor


AND FINALLY!!
Here is the finished project.













And if you wanna know what i did this weekend, i got KNEE DEEP in a YFZ motor, putting the WR setup in one, Cant beat it power is unfreakin believable and its cheap, i would recommend cams when doin it and some kinda higher compression piston, but here ya go, you finally get to see what i look like

Wow thats nice, looks like it would take some time but 3 months isnt bad. If you dont mind me asking, how much did that all cost you in the end?

i totalled it up, with help from some sponsers and buying used i would say around 6500 which isnt that bad being most of the small stuff is new, but it was fun, i really enjoy building up quads, this is my 3rd yfz i built, and the 7th one in all, but i was saving up for an enclosed but decieded a spare bike would be more worth it in case something happens i have a backup, so i used that money i was saving to build this bike, if you look hard enough you can build one too for that, which is nice, cuase new from the ground up i would say it would have been atleast a 9000 dollar job

Ah nah dude, i have built 7 in all, but i only own 2, the first one you might remember was the white/red one with TCS/LSR setup, prolly the best handling bike i have owned, i dunno, but in a few weeks i will have pics of my race bike, and you guys and gals will really hit the floor when you see it, :hey:
