Start your build off journal here!
LOVE the steering damper hope you dont mind if i steal that for my latest project, no idea if it will work a dang but h*** it looks cool hahaa
Any idea what bike this is off originally or is it an after-market steering damper for use on any bike??
I agree with above poster too...bikez screaming for some slicks, BIG fat 3inch jobs IMO would suit it...I would be popping a 49cc Grubee motor in too with
a nice tuned pipe for some forward mojo too ...
Best of luck finishing the bike loks fantastic thus far well done !
Guys like you make me afraid to post my project. Good work.
I'm really liking the raw metal with the black wheels. I'm sure it's not part of the program, but I would leave the raw metal, get some black tires and go with it.
I have not read the thread, only looked at pictures, so if it seems like I'm a beep, it's because I am.
The damper is for a CRG Italian Pocketbike with 20 something adjustments. You can get them from Mid South Mini Moto still I think. Look under GRC steering or fork parts.
I was thinking the same thing something like this?
They come in 2.2 width and look even fatter then that.
Yep Im love every minute of this build. Love the looks of a bike till the seat and handlebars goes on it then it just gets heavy to me. You keeping everything below the top tube makes it fast sitting still.

Cheers for the info on the steering damper found it on the site you mentioned, bit pricey for my budget i managed to track down one for 15 bucks which looks pretty much identical, awesome idea wish i had thought of it haha...look forward to more updates
Any update on this cool bike?
Yes, The frame is finished and painted, the side panels are done and being pinstriped tomorrow, forks are done but a new aluminum top tripple will be needed to get the rake just right. The seat was built today and I will post photos in a bit. The seat build required making molds and a press but the rough shape is done finally. I am pretty happy with it so far other than the unbelieveable amount of time spent and the fact that nothing fit without modifications. It is going to come down to the wire but it will be done.
OK; These are todays photos of the seat progess. A friend of mine (Ryan) builds one off custom motorcycle seats so we took an old (no longer used) mold and chopped it up for a bicycle seat size, photo 1 shows the pie section that we had to remove. The aluminum pan was rough cut to shape then pressed to get the front formed. The near complete photos show the rear of the seat is starting to take shape but some fine tuning will be needed with the english wheel. Tomorrow I will trial fit it then start the shaping to make sure it is comfortable. A thrashed Brooks seat was used as a template to get the basic shape right.
