Here is our winter project, started in February finished a few days ago. Enjoy!

Started with a 2009 CRF450R frame, and a 1986 CR500R motor. All the chassis parts came from forums, eBay and Honda shops.























:)



What do you guys think?:cool:

Number two.



:D

Oh me, oh my. That's true old school like the GSXR7/11s

Nice work, but man did you have to polish it so pretty... it's (almost) too clean to take into the dirt.

You've got to post some vids when done.

How long did it take... love that it's a ebay special... Inventive. Very inventive. :D

Very Nice! That turned out really good. One of these will be my next project.

Why did you go with a CRF frame?

A lot of AF 500's I see use a CR250 frame and I'm not sure what the mods it intails to do the swap. Is one easier than the other (CR vs CRF)?

No polishing, been down that road before.

It took about two months.

Thank you.

Thanks.

We went with the latest generation Honda frame, which only is a CRF. Modifying a CR frame is simpler than a CRF. Its about the "Y" and the exhaust header.

Yeah, have one in the stable...



HAHA for only $11,000 that can be yours.....I am betting he spent less on his project.
Considerably less.

what he saved on the project is more than spent on the machine tools. :D
Maybe, but what money we did save one could buy a nice used mill and tig welder.:cool:

You only have to buy the tool once.:D

B.Y.O.B.I.S. = Building Your Own Bike Is Superior, :confused:

The 1986 motor should be a real animal.
