A New Year:

So, back in the midst of the bizarre year that was 2020 and in part due to the entire race season being effectively cancelled a few of us over here at Championship Cycles were getting a bit edgy.
We really needed to blow off some steam.
A few phone calls were made and a loose plan was scratched out.
@motrizzle and I loaded up a couple of my favorite bikes (the 1990 Suzuki GSX-R750 8hour endurance racer and the carbon ‘93 race-prepped Ducati 888) and headed out.
We met up with cinematographer/filmmaker @chrisbottoms and his outstanding crew an hour north of Los Angeles at Willow Springs for some classic 1990’s track time fun and to capture some of the days’ highlights.
Trust me, I’ve got the biggest grin behind that visor.
Hands down the best day of 2020 and here’s hoping for more of this in 2021!

Enormous thanks to:

Organised Chaos from @meadsspeedti !
These titanium sections comprise the exhaust chambers on the RZV500R.

As with all 2 strokes, getting the maximum out of the Yamaha RZV500R isn’t just about the engine work- designing a tuned set of custom pipes to take full advantage of the new motor’s potential is critical.
So, with the new design in hand (and a duplicate bike to test fitment), titanium master @Meadsspeedti has begun and cut the patterns on the bespoke titanium chambers.

Piece by Piece. Yamaha RZV500R.
Dymag wheels and Nitron forks fitted up with the custom triple and brakes. It’s not a roller yet...more of a wheelbarrow, but more good stuff is in the works.
