That would be awesome. And I agree about using Honda parts, I always try to but the aftermarket piston/cylinder kits are so cheap it almost doesn't make sense to use OEM honda and get the cylinder bored, etc. Beatrice Cycles has the CT70 88cc kit on sale for $100 right now. http://dratv.com/88ctalalc7.htmlclem said: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.
Ha, yeah I dig the route 66 pedal. Its OD and compression with a clean mix for both sides. That and the carbon copy are probably my two favorites. I might have to grab a good flanger and go all Cure on everybody.canyoncarver said:Nice effects pedal setup....
Carbon copy is one of my favorite pedals in my arsenal. MXR makes great stuff, I have their phase 90, boost pedal, and a modded blue box that sounds like the guitar solo in D'yer Makr when you crank it.clem said:Ha, yeah I dig the route 66 pedal.

I played rhythm guitar for 15 years or so, got stuck in a plateau skill wise and switched over to playing bass. I enjoy it, but it was an unpopular transition, going FROM guitar TO bass haha.clem said:
