Hey all. Short time reader first time poster.
I recently picked up 2 GT250's and a GT380 as project bikes. So i thought id share. Its my first time building a bike, first street bike for that matter. Was getting hurt to often in the mx world so hopefully this will keep me out of trouble. So the plan is a lot of dirtbike influence.
I want to do high pipes one expansion chamber on each side going up and out like an mx bike. I think this will be my biggest challenge.
It will have mx style handle bars.
Probably Dunlop k70's 4.00's front and back
Im lacing a back rim to the front hub so I can run the wider tires.
Any ideas, options, suggestion constructive/deconstructive criticism welcome I can handle it haha.
Dont expect tons of progress for awhile yet, it summer and i'm building a 14' enclosed toyhauler as well. Anyway enough talk here are some pictures
Here are my two options for the pipes. i think the one tucked in looks better but will take a some metal work to get them to cross past eachother. the other way where its sticking out would work without any mods. it wont interfere with tire either but i dont think it looks as good.
frame tabs cleaned off
Heres the 380
Not too sure what to do with the 380. Fix and sell or hangon to it?
