    my J1 (now and before)

    had some Z50A K3-models before, no pics at this moment

    my previous J1




    In Paris on a run last year.

    sold it as RF because my frame broke 2-3 times. Made a new frame from a J2-type frame, but sold it in May this year

    Bought an other J1, Japanese model with a good frame. That bodykit is waiting for repaint, but I couldn't wait. So I made something else...

    My J1 now

    engine


    with my ex-dax (a friend of mine bought it)


    a pic on the Visť run last July

    yes, modified from a ATC70.
    ATC70 is normal 6V, but here the system works on a Mitsuba 12V

    long time no seen...
    didn't use any of the above clutches.
    Superclutch (kitaco/honda) doesn't fit with the clipping point & ysohi 24mm. (bought a CD113with SH and had to sell it again )
    Kitaco ultra clutch as black. Builded an engine, 88cc/Daytona hyperhead/Monkey 4 speed gearbox/... but wasn't what I wanted => sell it
    Daytona dry clutch... sold it again. Nice clutch but because I drove my bike often as daily to expensive.

    update for the J1. (septembre 2015 on a ride in the UK, Hever castle run)
    IMG_0766.jpg
    Eco shop wheels, headlight ears in cameleon paint, Takegawa master breakcylinder

    decembre 2015

    other engine. Daytona 115 crankcases + gearbox. 54mm stroke, 54mm cylinder + Daytona hyper head => 125cc
    switched the pull start to this engine.
    some small things I would like to change: cable for clutch to hydraulic, other bodykit, other wheels, perhaps other frontfork
    BUT
    now I'm thinking of selling the bike. Problems with my knee when I drive it. So bought a MSX + rebuiling Honda ST70 dax

    Looking at an msx myself .
    MSX is daily bike for me, home - work.
    to my opinion, you can't expect a lot of fun like on a mini bike (monkey/dax/...). But it's reliable and that's why I bought it. (only changed the exhaust to a Tyga carbon up and installed a MRA windshield).
    mine does around 90-100kmh (stock 85kmh). People tell me to change to the Takegawa F1-con, which make it run smoother... ?but 180€ for only that?

    reason why I keep it original, daily and reliable... And I just posted my other minibikes in ST70/CT70 and SL70 (it's a CD50S but a rare bike) and those bikes are my fun bikes and I prefer to put more money in those...

    doubting to put a yellow bodykit on it... (I have a tank/batterycover/headlightstand and a black headlight)

    long time...
    the cameleon J1 since 2016. No big chances.


    but after last meeting season I dicided to take it apart. The body (tank, batterycover and headlight go to family, only will he take an other frontfork and painted hubs)

    I restarted my old love, my ST70.

    since august 2017 I have an other Z50A K3, named Tatjana (the name was airbrushed on the tank). bought her as crap.


    and became this


    last week I drove Journey of Sound biker edition. The start was in Oudenaarde and the end was Paris, 3 days. But with a 50cc bike, big fun.
