It's back on the rack  8)

Getting the trigger wired up and looking to replace the sump filter with an SRM unit next, need to mount the coils but still struggling with where.

Gonna try to stay focused, the dirtbikes may get parted out... seems parts are gold, but bikes are down.

that bike is going to need internal throttle and internal clutch lever
and put the speedo tach unit recessed into the tank so the handle bar area is clean

I plan to use as minimal as I can, but those parts are just way expensive so its getting MX throttle and clutch perch and levers all black with just a kill switch 5 inch headlight off a minibike with LED lamp no gauges no dash, just a mini tach in the headlight.

Tag and tail light location sucks, we need the plate to be half the size again smaller

For what it's worth... There's an old Honda. Something small. I can't remember the exact model, but they ran an internal throttle. You can pick the parts up cheap. Cannot for the life of me remember which model though.
