Hey all,

New here to the forum but wanted to get some of your opinions. I have a 2004 CRF 70 (practically brand new) and wanting to build it to be a full-size looking CRF (like the Reeg bikes). Anyways, could you please chime in as far as a good starting point goes for what frame, swingarm, shock, front end, etc. I have researched enough that maybe a slowracer ssr frame is the way to go....how do I get one of those. I DO NOT want this to looked raked WAY out and like a cheap chinese bike. What some opinions? And, MONEY is an object.....it's on a budget.



Thanks

your gonna spend around 400 on that frame there endless money pits if you want a good bike, if you can spend the money I would build a 124 se motor, or throw a daytona in, zokes, and whatever else but its up to you

$400 for the frame, where do I buy one at? Is there anything off my stock 70 that I can use or should I just leave it alone and build this from ground up? What's gonna be the hardest to figure out - disc brakes fitment, swingarm, etc.? I'm recovering from a very bad knee injury on a big bike and look forward to building my crf70 but have never done anything pitbike related so I'm completely stupid and blind to the topic. I think I want 12" wheels for both or 14" front and 12" rear.....what's the suggestion. I'd like to get the roller built then start worrying about the motor last. Any info would be much appreciated. Peace.

scrap the stock frame unless you spend some serious time on welding and gusseting the head tube after taking 3 degrees +/- out of the rake.... just get an SSR frame or Pirahna frame and talk to Wholesale-cycle (Pirahna) about their billet swinger if you're on a budget. They are great peeps!

being on a budget is understandable, I always am, but I love my Red Baron 70, all in all I may have less in completely building it than buying and modifying a bike to get it to my liking, keep in mind, with pitbikes, you usually get what you pay for tho, stick with a reputable and known company, you will be much happier with less break downs in the end, just my 2 pennies
