I spent some time at Tim’s (a fellow F4 racer) place on Anzac day talking crap about bikes and figuring out how we can get some economies of scale going on with our GP125 builds. Being the good bastard he is, he gave me some… ummmm… used GP125 cases and a test bed GP100 cylinder for some time on the grinder before jumping into mine. THANKS TIM!
I started undressing her the other night and took some photos along the way:

I made some clip on bars this week after work for the GP125. I’ve very stoked to have them at a more suitable height! Now I just have to cut off the front and rear foot pegs and make some new ones to correct the seating position.
The bars are currently at quite a shallow angle due to the bulk of the factory tank. I’m not about to chop and weld it but man I wish I could! I’m toying with the idea of making one from scratch in the search for less mass and better fit. I suppose I’ll see how I get on.
The above are two reference images including the bars. Note the frame shape, I’m hoping to change that…

I went to the Barry Sheene Trans Tasman Challenge at Hampton Downs a while back and shot some photos of the pretty amazing field that was out there. I was looking back through some of my posts when I remembered I forgot to post some of my favourites! Here are a couple with more to come, man that was an awesome day of racing.
