TWO STROKE Shoot out , sleepy hollow mx 2014 Thanks for looking. If you like how the bike turned out please click on the like icon .
taking the bike out for testing new style side panels . I still need to get graphics made for them testing fitment with old style rear fender mock up custom seat by traction mx seating . https://www.facebook.com/TractionMX bike on display in ATLANTIC CITY . it was only 75% done at this point I wanted a gold DG type swing arm. but went with Ohlins gold checkers customs did all my powder coat work and hydro dipping . I wanted a black engine like the 70's to mid 80's bikes . made the head gold like the old DG air cooled bikes had to add a new twist to the bike with carbon fiber print added to the cases cylinder and head. the second cylinder will be going on my 88 yz250 it was not easy finding all the yellow plastic . a lot of it came from the UK 2006 yz250f bar pad started out buying used plastic off ebay . Noleen pipe that I did not use im no artist buy this is what was in my head . as you can see I did want a DG feel Yamaha MX360 found the dyno pipe on ebay . it fits like it was made for this build . some old 91 cases for test fitting in the frame I had to lower and move the bottom mount back front mount had to be lowered and moved forward

    Really cool bike, what's the story on the Öhlins cylinder? A kit for MXGP back in the days?

    Yamaha owned a percent of Ohlins . they had Ohlins make 1000 360cc big bore kits to be legal to race in the open class vs the 500s. Noleen was the importer of the kit for the united states. the kit fits 88-98 yz 250's
