Post by Last Minute Racing » Sat Feb 20, 2010 7:50 pm

Been a year in the rebuild started just before last years event but today it started for the first time that i have owned it.
Im soooo f@#king happy i could just shit.

Image

Chambers arrive. this was going to be a quick freshen up. :roll:

Image

New tyres

Image

Quick clean before going gack together

Image

Taking shape (still empty)

Barrels have been ported and matched to the cases, heads welded up and reshaped to current 250 GP spec, TYGA chambers, modified reed blocks including fitting custom (home made) splitter, new bearings in wheels swing arm headstem, new chain and sprockets, new tyres.

Will be going on the dyno next week some time, hoping to get mid 60 RWHP.
Not bad for a 1/4 Ltr, if only they kept going with development and made 1 Ltr 2 strokes. :D

Thanx
Dave

I was wondering what it did. I was talking to the owner and he said it was going to be a slow run to test the aerodynamics.
They must be pretty good.
Cant wait for him to open it up lol.

Thanx
Dave

2011 is looking like "the year of the bumble bee" , my son just took posession of a '91 RGV 250 too, and it only took one visit to the lake this year to get him hooked, lol.
