Greetings Mike, thank you for the kind review of the little rooster. I have been going to DDs the last few years and always have a great time, looking forward to racing this machine at DDs in 2013 in the Marty Tripes revenge.
My ole buddy Randy Lee and I tossed around this idea last April in Texas and the result turned out killer!! Just figured some would love it and others may not, but, it was a fun build and sure to get a few looks. Planning on going to EZ Jims next week and the race in Texas in November.
Gonna try to make n40...... guess I may be breaking my cz in at the races.......I'm sure it will be interesting. Only my second vintage race and second time on a vintage bike!! [well, since the 70's anyway!] Nothing like getting free riding lessons while learnin' the vintage thing! Hope the ahrma race will be a good place to race for a newb, even though I'll surely get my %#*@ handed to me!!! LOL Anyway thanks and looking forward to meeting you! Bubba

"Paul, I am not certain on the weight, but I recall either Cycle or Cycle world showing a prototype CR 125 in 1972. It weighed an incredible 147 lbs. Seems as though there was an article about it getting sold to someone here in the states in the last…"
"Jack, It would be worth a lot more since they didn't come out until late 73 and this is a 75 model.
Marty McFly: Wait a minute, Doc. Ah... Are you telling me that you built a time machine... out of a DeLorean?"
