We were waiting for Honda’s Aluminum Frame 500cc Bikes to be developed and we were going to build our own in 96. Honda  was to release them to the USA in 2002 but decided to cancel the program and sell a CRF450 instead. After careful evaluation we discovered that the geometry for the CRF450 was identical to the CR500 old school steel framed bikes. We carefully built and tested the prototype Aluminum Framed CR500 for two years and developed the best handling two stroke in the world. Our design makes the factory frame even stronger than in the original form. We offer 250 and 500cc Kawasaki, CR500cc Honda’s, and RM250cc Two Strokes. We build two Stroke Motors, do suspension Mods, and sell OEM Parts

We are currently building the first Road Racer 500cc Two Stroke in an aluminum Frame and will be debuting it at the International Motorcycle Show in Cleveland Ohio, the Motorcycle Dealer Show in Indianapolis, Indiana, and at Bike Week in Daytona, Florida
