Hi Charlie,

What do you think a 360 Mugen "me 360" motor is worth?

Also what would you pay for a CR250 with a 360 Mugen top end kit motor?


Regards, Chas.

Thanks for asking Chalie, I am feeling pretty good now that all the hardware is out of my shoulder! Might even go for a ride when I get a little strength back. PV of course.

Hi there, Im the designer from Evo & Twinshock Magazine. Last year we launched the very first issue of this bespoke magazine and it ended up all over the globe. We only printed 1,000 and so decided over a few beers that we would attempt another this year. This time bigger, better and more serious. ISSUE 2 has got 100 top quality pages packed with reports from top UK meetings of 2010, fantastic photographs, results, re-builds, 18 pages of MXDN Farleigh Castle and its out online NOW. www.evotwinshock.com

Pop along to our website and say hi and even upload some of you photos.

We also would like some constructive critisim so that Issue 3 will be even better kiss.gif

Thank you for your time Kirsteen and Roger

Thanks Charlie, She's a beauty. Fully rebuilt , new everything, Bling and a few unseen trick mods in the motor. I haven't even started her as yet. Hope to have her run in and setup for the coming season. The big questions will be will I be fit enough and will the old skills come back? I love your Rm's I used to race Rm 125's and loved them. Had Cr 125 for less than 1/2 a season and found they were no match against a RM 125. I would like to get a 1979-1980 RM 125 to add to the collection. Post more photos Charlie
