Great news nice job getting it done...

Theres miles apart in european craftsmanship thats been around since the early 90's and the chinese ripoff bikes manufactured in early 2003 and equipped with a 1.6 and 1.9hp tool based engines from backpack blowers,trash pumps and augers....Even the way the engines are mounted between both types are way different too..

Youre riding around on atleast 5 times more horsepower and something that retailed for $2 grand brand new and built with way better materials like premium wheel/neck and clutch bearings also premier series chains and precision cut sprockets ...Cags originally were $169.00/$237 shipped to your door.

Change out the neck bearings, clutch bearing, sprocket,chain, wheel bearings and pinion out for ultra premium grade ones plus fabricate a much stiffer upper engine mount bracket plus weld-in a neck gusset or two and that cag will feel like its on another level...All the ones I remofdeled the frames on definitely were and handled better than my Polini Carena 910





This was the first remodel...After strengthening the rear swingarm and adding a few inches you can feel the area from the neck to the arch bends flexing badly altering steering


This is the second rebirth...…..This frame was deadly accurate and didn't flex and vibrate half as much as it first did......The original rear swingarms were like jello…

In this pic you can see where they bent the square tube giving it a slight bend on the inner part of the frame which weakens the tube structure and adds flex to the neck area..

Thanks @CAM2 and @EPR I look forward to the serial results. I paid $600 for the bike and it's really really clean for being possibly 15-20 years old! I like the cag mods CAM2!

Youre Welcome and thanks RPB.....Your bike could be possibly up to 25 years old....LOL..The original prototype came out in 1993 and was rumored to be a Blata Elite10 with a Polini watercooled engine addition..Rasto would be the one to know for sure..

Seeings he hasn't replied yet Id ballpark your bike as being a 1999/2000/2001 going by the sequence code...…….They passed the 2200 bike milestone in 1995..

$600.00 is about 1/3 the retail which is the going rate for a used race machine but seeings it is such a pretty well cared for bike a very nice price...Its also works out as being $50 cheaper than a chinese knockoff........
