    Never liked the original bars that came with the bike, used some others I had. But I did not like them so we just picked up some Sunline VThree/254 bars.

    I also realized tonight that the white wall on the tires are reflective. Tomorrow I am gonna paint the air cleaner cover.

    Thank You Bill, I can't take all the credit. This is Alex's bike (The Blue Fox) and we built it together. He will be racing it at DR.

    It's got coaster brake as well. After my engine mods I did to it; it is 9mph faster then the GT2 bike so LOOK OUT! I just hope it holds together lol.

    This morning I took the Nerve out for a spin, my first long ride on it. Alex complained that the bars were to wide but just cruising around the hood it felt good to me.

    But after my ride I realized the bars were a little too wide, any little movement felt like too much input so I cut the bars back. I did not mind them being wide it was comfortable to ride and just takes a little getting used to. But it's not my bike so I made the bars narrower.

    Fair how you like that pipe? I was thinking about picking one up from MotorBoys up here...

    The pipe was provided by Alex's sponsor USABikeMotors, Your source for Grubee StarFire Bike Motor Kits, Parts, Service

    It's loud, but it does add torque and more speed. We had two of them one with a muffler on the end but it killed the performance of the pipe.

    I like it, wish I had one for the Rockhopper. The pic with Alex is before we changed the bars and a few little other things.

    I just installed some rear caliper brakes. Now we have three, front disc,rear coaster brake (pedal Brake) and rear caliper brakes.

    Also installed a wireless speedo which I forgot to take pics of.

    brakes are very important. It's interesting how brakes can make lap times faster. I doubt that it would make that much difference on a 50cc bicycle. Were talking F1 here. I guess you do have the F1 of motor assisted bicycles. can't wait to see it at the race. are you bringing it and the boxer?

    Yes both bikes will be at Dr, we had the extra brake so we figured why not. I don't use brakes on the track. I just dive into the corner drag my knee and hope I come out on the other end ;)

    Congrats to my buddy Alex and B1 with a second place finish at DR. The fastest lap for the B1 was 1:28 with a average lap speed of 32.67mph.

    Now if we can just work on him being smoother and more consistent, his attention deficit hyperactivity disorder seems to be a problem on his focus on the track.

    I like! would an S&B high performace airfilter, from sbp help out? I have one on my bike and I think it definitly incresess performace, but I'm still new, so I woundered why I havent seen them on any of the veteran bikes, especially the ones built for the DR! any thoughts? Really good looking build!
