Guys, I have not been online much as I have had a few bikes on the go with Sen's and also a mate who wanted to race an RGV. I was given one about a year ago and just left it in storage. Mate of mine talked about racing a 2 stroke bike so I put it to him that if he bought all the needed parts, I would build it.

This bike got a complete rebuild from frame up with nothing left un-touched. Even the engine & gearbox got stripped and checked with new parts installed as required. I have not enough time to write all the process, so pic's will have to speak for themself.

Needless to say, this little thing stings along and is alot quicker then my track RGV.

Looks sweet, I remember riding one and thinking this is fun, then I bought my gixxer (the rgv was not well looked after)
Nice bikes.

If you are interested, I have a set of light weight Marvic wheels fora rgv, I will try and get some pictures for you.

DC, if you do mate I would sure like to see them. We are putting another bike togother that wont be so regulated like PCRA.

Ian, yes it has its first race meet this weekend. Not sure what garage, but sunday would be the best day as we get on the full track.

We went out on public holiday monday and it was just horrid to get out on new tyres. We also didnt have the wets yet so my mate took he's 400 out on full wets instead.
