Thanks for the input everyone. had a good time building it. still working out some of the bugs with it. I started with a damaged bike (low side lay down) that i found on the net for cheap. it had been all repaired and could have rode it home if the weather was nicer. Got it in the shop and started tearing it down. Put a '97 CR250 fork and wheel on it we had laying around. warp9 made the 320mm rotor kit for the 21in wheel. Used 5in. Rox risers and Renthal bars to get the height i wanted. Rad mfg. made the rear hub and i laced it to a 18in excel wheel. Built a custom bash plate and modified the seat. finally did the R1 shock swap to round it out.
