2000 suzuki RGV-T conversion to drag bike W.I.P.
Posted by zanrock heavy haul on Thursday, January 03, 2013 12:52 PM

It's been awhile but i decided to try the scratch building skills again. I always wanted a drag bike like the ones on the snap-on truck but in plastic and like always you have to do it yourself so i said what the hell. I found this F I A bike and figuared that it was the easier one to do compared to the pro-stock harleys and so far i think i went the right way. i have done many mods so far [ i can explain more of the build later ]  from the front forks to the swing arm, even the exhaust pipes and since there really no parts or pieces for the build so alot is hand built or modified from the parts bin. since there are not many photo's  [trade secrets]  you have to do alot from memory. enough for now like i said is a work in progress and i hopr that it is liked enough so i will keep updates on the build   enjoy   rich 2000suzukirgv-tdragbike153_zps21b22293.jpg 2000suzukirgv-tdragbike120_zps27fbe4e3.jpg 2000suzukirgv-tdragbike117_zps23f1a425.jpg

That exhaust is inappropriate for a 2-stroke bike, it needs expansion chambers rather than straight pipes. Just a heads-up.

thanks on the 2 stroke and yes on the chamber. i really did not think about that  all i had in mind was the build and  when the swing arm was being built  i needed a exhaust the would fit the opening and thats what shape it took
