Default CRF230 project bike

Well I just wanted to see wat people think of my project bike I have been workin on it for about the last 3 months. I took a CRF230 motor and put it in a 2000 GasGas EC200 frame. The reason I did this is because I destroyed the suspension on the 230. I have always wanted to do a project like this but never could find a bike at the time I wanted 1. But it is almost done and I cant wait 2 ride it. just a few more things and Its ready 2 hit the trails. The pics should be in order of how the whole process went. It has been lowered about 2 inches cause I am vertically challenged. And it is called a GASONA!!

I'm waiting for a first ride report on this bike. I'd like to do something like this for my daughter's 230. She's riden my bike too many times and likes it so much I'm having a hard time getting it back! Now she wants an aluminum frame. If she persists I might end up selling her 230 and the trx400 to get enough money. KIDS! I'd rather do something like this and maybe teach her something in the process, but I'm not too much up on welding aluminum. : Guess I'll have to learn.

Well since Irv was sippin the juice a little too late into the evening you missed out on some good riding. Working on editing the helmet cam footage right now. Would have been a great test for that bike.
