    Ha! WTF am I doing over here? I know, right? Well, here she is: 1980 something Suzuki SP125. A dirt bike. One of my best friends from grade school gave her to me. He told me it was a 2 stroke, but when I picked her it, I quickly realized she was a four. A long story, but suffice to say, I owe my...

    Hey all: I found an SR500 10 miles from me. The guy is asking $500; I offered $300. I need a project like a hole in the head, but the bike is cheap and they are very popular right now. I figured I could flip it for good money. The guy got back to me and said nothing lower than $400. Here's...

    Have any of you ever....

    Have any of you guys building these bikes ever taken them off road? Well, I ask that but I suppose there are street trackers and dirt trackers. So what are you guys building? Seems like it would be easy to set up an ad hoc dirt track. FWIW, I did 85mph on the salt, and it was surprisingly...
