Would have been cool to have this version in the states.
Engine build will be a learning experience for me so we'll see how it go's.

So it's been a little time since the last post but I've gotten busy on this one again. Took the engine apart and it was messy. Years of grime and found sludge and some light corrosion on the inside. Piston was stuck, shift drum was stuck. I took it down to split the cases. I have them cleaned up and have new case screws on order to replace the existing fasteners. The shift shaft was bent so a new one along with the kick start shaft is on order from honda. I picked up another shift drum from the bay to replace what I currently have. The shift forks have wear marks so I need to replace them. Bad part is that the guide pins will not come out of the forks. I'll post up more step by step when it goes back together. It was to dirty to be picking up my phone for the teardown.

Right on man, I had no idea this thread existed. Looks like we're both suckers for saving the mini trails. I can't decide which one of us was worse off when we started  ;D

I almost bought a DAX a year or so ago. It was pretty roached the guy only wanted a couple hundred for it. We were about to make a deal when he sold it to someone else.

You going big bore?

I thought about an 88cc kit since the cylinder is toast and the end of the muffler is stuck in the head. I wound up buying a used head only to find screwdriver marks where a monkey tried to pry the cam chain cover off. I could probably still use it but I'm leaning towards the CHP 88cc kit with the head, cylinder and carb. I was trying to keep it all original Honda but that may not be possible while still doing this for a reasonable price.
The CT's are rad for sure and it seems like they are hard to come by down here. I would like to find another one to do a custom build with a big Chinese motor in it that I won't mind thrashing on some trails. That's kind of the thought I had for a mini trial challenge. Find a cheap bike, get it running and reliable, take it on a long two or three day trail ride while doing some camping. I figured you could earn points for every dollar your bike costs below a set amount then get points for reusing crusty parts, swapping or donating parts to competitors and maybe points for every mile you do on the trail ride before a mechanical failure. The guy with the most points at the end of the ride is crowned Mini Trail Champion.
