For those of you that don't know, I'm back into mini moto's and am hoping to enter the British Championships next year. 8)

I bought a 4.2 910 steel on eBay a few weeks back and after winning it and getting it home I realised it wasn't 'as advertised' condition wise.:(

I therefore decided to strip it and rebuild it. Here are the results of my hard work...

I didn't go for Focus ST Orange in the end. Ended up doing it with 'cheap as you like' acrylic spray paints from Trago. £1.99 a can - ideal! :lol:

Here's a photo of the bike before the rebuild.

I'll get some video up when I have some. Most of the time I go to the track on my own so it's difficult to get footage. :roll:

I'm working on that. :wink:

At the moment the closest track to us is Cheddar in Somerset. I try and go there at least twice a month. 8)

Yes, you need a bike, helmet, gloves and knee pads. They are the only requirements.

Track days range from £15 a day to £30 a day depending on track.

There are loads of places up north that do open sessions for mini moto's.

There's a brilliant indoor track in Leeds! 8)
