That's a very good question (to which I do NOT have the answer). Do you supose this MadAss 125cc will be worth considering?

Again, I say, send AirHawk out to test ride the wheels off (or Danger)! We need a ride report, stat!

Wow Moke. You don't know what an SL Honda is?

Here's a 350 and a 70:

That SL350 says "Let's Ride!" with its rubber covered footpegs, trials tires and 325 lb. wet weight. Wonder how many people have to wear a truss now because of the SL350 series?

My Cl handled so badly, 5 mph was about it on a rock filled trail, or you'd get bounced right off the bike. Those non-existant smooth fire roads in the Honda commercials would have been perfect, but I could never find one!

Yeah, some are heavy. I might mention that I rode an Ariel Square 4 in an observed trials back in 1950. I didn't win.

Didja check out the Harley Hummer blurb in the MX forum? I know you rode one on Catalina in the GP, interesting stuff I found on that bike, a DKW copy.

A square four in observed trials? Why not a full dress Hydraglide? Or a Brough Superior? Jeez Tom, too much bike there buddy....

Default 9.2 hp from a 2 hour bolt on kit is easier

I guess we'll never see the end of that miserable little motor. It should have been put to death long ago. Now every bike builder in Christendom who needs a small four stroke now goes to the Honda 90 as its powerplant. Sad.

Why didn't they choose the SL/CL/CB 100 motor? Too hard to mount in flimsy frames I guess.
GOSH, THAT SEEMS LIKE A BIG EFFORT TO GET 9HP ON THAT OLD RELIC. OUR BOLT ON 88CC KIT PUTS THE SACHS MADASS 50 AT 9.2 HP QUITE EASILY. OUR 160CC BIG BORE KIT IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE 18HP ON THE 125 MADASS. WE WILL RUN IT ON THE DYNO ,ONCE WE GET THEM IN LATER THIS MONTH.
