dirtbag challenge 2013 bike – critical miss v1

ryan and i dragged out the kawasaki roadrunner we tried to build a few years ago and made it our 2013 dirtbag build. everything we did all those years ago had to be done over, but in the end it turned out to be a fun little ripper.
well, until the piston melted down on the dirtbag ride. as it turns out, taking a 46 year old 120cc two stroke trail bike with stock gearing out on the freeway for miles isn’t a great idea. who would have thought?
obviously we didn’t “finish” it, but with ~$300 and probably ~15-20 hours invested, we didn’t do that bad. the bike had been sitting in a guy’s back yard for 20 years or more when we got it and i had to break up the stock piston with a hammer to get it out of the cylinder. we are pretty stoked we even got it running in time for the dbc.
we have a new piston and ryan will be rehashing it next year for his dirtbag 2014 bike and i’ll be building something new, so i figured i’d get some shitty pictures of version one before that happens.
