So today I got a lot of work done on the race Ciao... I took no pictures though. I was in a time crunch. I got a belt and a few parts for the Derbi and a sweet plastic tool box so I dont have to dump my bag out all the time.

So I got these installed today. They are suppose to be 75% stiffer than stock. they are sure much harder to get on. I managed to stab myself in the hand one real good time and a few lesser occasions.
Now I need to Jb weld the intake Jesse made me and put it on the back of the case. It looks like I might get to ride this thing on Friday.

Here is the Exhaust flange Jesse #23 made me. its a fair amount bigger than the one that came with my kit. I matched the cylinder to the new flange and I think it should rip.
Here it is almost ready to be bolted in the frame.
This is the carb on the Derbi 28mm Mikuni I need to drop down a few jets from the 150 that is in it.

So I am racing this crazy ciao with all kinds of goodies. I have a Simonini CDI Half a polini speed engine case, a simonini side intake case half, This crazy Poliini Gilardoni kit and a simonini pipe. I have broken like 5 cranks with this kit so far but they were all stock so now I am rocking a top one race crank. I am going to put the purple clutch springs in my clutch and hope it doesnt blow up. If it does I can always race my Motomatic Derbi. That thing might keep up. I also ride a funny looking Tomos.
I am going to be racing as number 420 in the Pacific Northwest Cup we have 4 tracks up here I know I will get to go to three but I am not sure about the canada track it looks so rad too.
So I have finaly decided to put a kit on my A55 this bike has way too many miles. Well over 25,000, I still have the stock cylinder and piston in the thing. I think its time to upgrade. I have had this Metra 50 kit sitting around for a while so I am going to slap it on once my treats get here. I think it should rip. Jesse did some port magic on it so it will be interesting to see how my transmission holds up. Right now I have a crazy a55 a35 a 3 frankenstein tranny.Here is the kit and the bike.
I have been working like crazy to get the Simonini case half to line up and work for the race bike.
