Almost time to tear it all apart and build the engine, then final assembly of the bike. You can see how much I had to cut off the fairing to get enuff pedal clearance.

Nice job on the Repsol livery Bill! That has always been one of my favorites and it works with the KTM orange theme as well. Seeing how this bmx has shaped up give me motivation to build the motorbicycle I was thinking about building that retains its pedals, my Motobike shed its pedals when I realized I'd need a super wide crankset to clear the trans, and I was concerned about digging pedal when leaning. Your frame mod moving the engine away from the pedals solves the engine width problem cleverly.

If I may ask, I know that it is a BMX bike but is it a youth BMX? It seems kinda short for racing, or with out knee sliders at least. Speaking of which how tall is it from the seat to the ground? 28inchs or so? Also are you going to be doing something for laying down behind the wind screen or is it just for looks?

Sincerely,
John Doe

Thanks 16v4, the pedal arm on the right side is widened to clear the case but the pedal arms are shorter to get ground clearance.

John Doe, It was a 24" adult BMXer that I lengthened the front triangle for a longer wheelbase and increased the front rake and went to 20" wheels. The fairing will be used and is easy to duck behind. The seat happens to be 28" at the moment but may change if needed the first time on the track. And none of the bike is for looks, Im building it to race in the Socal Motor Bicycle Racing series to replace my current race bike.
