well the bike was pretty much standard when i got it, i paid 560 for it from a guy who didn't really know what it was;




next to my mates mito 350



i then managed to crash it, so i took the broken lowers off and used it anyways



i then swapped it to a friend for a mito evo 2 with a nackered bottom end

he made it look even worse!



but then he sourced some bodywork for it from hong kong (this was before it was easily available on ebay)



we also had a bracket machined to run a 4 pot caliper from a gsxr600/750



then got some bits powdercoated



also fitted with a race cdi with no rev limiter, makes power upto 20,000rpm, and modified the exhaust, should hear it scream!



unfortunately it burnt a hole through the piston on cylinder 3, and this is how it stands to this day, theirs another engine to go in but too bloody cold out their!



bit of a unusual bike with a unusual life for you, better than your average 4 banger!
