Default 20" KTMc GP Socal Racer

This is the second build of this bike. The first time I took it to the races and it had every little problem you could have and it really seemed to be jinxed! None of the problems were related to the build, just murphys law I guess. I told myself I would never take it to the track again.
But Now I have cut off the front triangle I built for it last time and I have stretched the wheelbase and changed the fork rake along with other changes so it will be a new bike and hopefully wont be such a hastle next time I race it.
Since its kinda a rebuild it wont be so much work, I can reuse the engine mounts and most of the parts. This time I will use clip on bars and a full fairing so it will be a mini GP bike. The front fairing in the pics is too small and I have the right sized one ordered but it will be 4 weeks before it shows up.

Thanks guys. I ordered a bigger fairing for ysr50 (Same wheelbase and diameter as this build) and it came the other day. Im very happy with it so far so I have ordered the lower half of the fairing and the windshield that I was holding off on until I was sure this was gonna work.

Made some progress, all the fairing parts came and I made the upper fairing mounts, I still have to make the lower mounts. The fairing is about 1/2 the weight I thought it would be.
I just started on the fuel tank and seat/fender mounts, the seat is higher in the pic than it will be when finished. I may scrap the tank seat/fender for a one piece tank/seat/fender that's made by the same company that makes the fairng but its kinda pricey.

Nice work there! Really fits the bike well. Normally I would not be into the motorcycle look but for race bike it's a good look! That lil thing must scoot.

Thanks Norm! That's high praise coming from a guy that wins more than his share of races!
