Hi Guys, Thought I would start a post to document my journey to build a Honda RC162 tribute bike. Initially I want to see how far I can get on a limited budget. But I might have to sink more funds into the project as I get closer to sorting out the finer details (all those little costly bits to make the bike look as original as possible). The plan is not to go overboard on spending, but to focus on something practical that will make an enjoyable little track bike that others might admire. After a little research, I have settled on using 2 bikes as the basis for the build. The 250cc mechanicals will come from an MC19 that I purchased as a basket case. The frame, wheels, seat, tank and other bits and pieces will come from a Skyteam ACE (Chinese, Honda Dream 50 like derivative) that I purchased new. I have the ACE road registered and I am riding it around a bit to just understand a bit about its dynamics. It is dead slow compared to my MC22s. Depending on progress (mainly limited by regular daytime workload), I am hoping that I can get it sorted before the Broadford Bike Bonanza at Easter time. Lots to do in the meantime. Peter.
