Project "El Chivo"
« on: Sep 27, 2016, 12:45:59 »
Hey all, Its been a while since I have posted anything but wanted to start a thread for my newest build.
I finished up a 73 RT3 360 a few months ago and was lefts with lots of parts to build this one so hear it is.
Its starting out as a rt3 frame with a 77 dt250 mono sub frame. The tank is from an old L5T and the forks and trees from a dt250.
I will be using the 360cc 2 stroke motor with lots of mods on it, got it all apart for boring, clutches and carb rebuild and need to round up an expansion chamber to go under the frame. Anyway hear it is and I will post more when I have time.

Thanks,
Jachana

Wanted to get some pics up.
Got a lot of parts in this week. Rims, Grips, Bars, etc. I got my down pipe ordered from Circle F Exhaust.
Cut the frame up a bit, got rid of tabs and shortened it up by 4 inches and welded in some support.

More soon,

Got a pic from Kevin at Circle F exhaust and here is the chamber he is building me for El Chivo.

Also got the forks taken apart last night for lowering and a freshen up.

Needing some opinions on paint colors too. Thinking gun metal frame and heavy flake purple on the tank? Thoughts?

TIA,
Jachana

That's a righteous chamber.

Looking good. I also dig that chamber. I looked up Circle F, they are out of Houston...I'll have to go check out their shop. Are you in the area?

I'm in Rockwall/Dallas about 3.5 hrs from Houston.
They build a bunch of race pipes.
