Those tyres make it look z50 sized
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Haha Mr.E said the same thing. I think the tank also adds to that a bit.

Haha several people on the tw200 facebook page have said that it looks like a big z 50. Im guessing the z50-esque red atc tank has a bit to do with that. Maybe I leave it red just to keep people guessing ;)

It's the tank and seat combo along with the balloon tires.
