I passed by your post a couple of weeks ago. I thought I’d check back to see the pictures & there aren’t any.
I’m kind of looking to buy a good bike if you’d like to post pictures up or even direct message me.
Thank you

Randall

I knew you'd eventually be searching for a better model....LOL

If it was me that was looking for a racing bike I'd either post a wanted ad in craigslist and letgo or I would put a wanted ad up at the local track too this way you can meet the guy at the track and test it out before you pull the trigger on one unless youre getting it for a steal.....

Most of the hotrods I build and sell get sold right there at the track after they see it run.......LOL

Anyways youll thank yourself and smack yourself all at the same time when you experience the differences between the one you have and the one you seek.......

Just remember to control the impulses as these eurobikes can run ya into the thousands and cost ya hundreds of manhours hunting and waiting for parts from overseas if you jump the gun and buy a dud....

Shipping these 50lb watercooled eurobikes can run ya up to $250.00 to have shipped if the seller doesn't have a commercial shipping account...

Take your time ask plenty of questions and see if they have any documentation of maintainance parts receipts last time the topend coil and crankseals were done ,the last time a leakdown test was done and what the compression is at the current moment.

These are important questions in determning whether the bike is worth the price and how long you basically have before having to do a new topend rebuild with coil, and crankseals.......

Good Luck with the search

Hey Cam2,
Very good advice & I thank you once again.
Mine is in trouble. I should just make a post about it as to not take up room here.

Thanks again

I hope your search turns out to be fruitful....


My Banshee with BZM engine I got in a trade for a set of worn out but very rebuildable SBC Camelhump Fuelley heads I had no more use for..It was worn out and I really didn't know the scene as well at the time seeings we were running modified YSR's / NSR's so I resleeved the cylinder with a blank cylinder of the same size that I identically mapped out against the old cylinder cut the ports with a Dremel and installed them I had it bored and a custom-made Teflon coated skirts Wiseco piston installed.....

For the Polini 910 I traded it for an old beatup King motors 5b 1/5 scale 2 stroke r/c buggy that wasnt even worth 100 bucks after I got through bashing with it.....LOL

The Polini 910 wasn't in stellar condition either but it did run and ride......

Luckily for me I got it just before the decline started so I was able to secure parts from MSMM aswell as eBay to rebuild the topend once more and then do a full engine rebuild with new crank so I have plenty of parts like extra clutches , pullstarter pawl arms/springs and crank plus waterpump seals on hand in the future for it as I plan on keeping it for a very long time and still be able to ride it too...

So far Ive had to rebuild the engine fully over so Im left with a complete topend rebuild kit with new coil...

Good Luck and hopefully you find a great one....

Here's pictures of my Blata. It has roughly 30 minutes of runtime total. It's been started times since new. Has been displayed in my workshop since new. Any questions, just ask.
You can eat off it.
