"I was promised a 1974 XR75 by my folks as a kid and never got it :( 2 years later I had a job and bought myself a 1976 CR125 Elsinore but I was always bummed about the XR. I grew up in Orange County real close to Misson Honda and J&B Racing. I remember drueling over the XR's and CR's they we're building there. I also loved the RC Factory Honda's of that period. All Red, Red Fork Boots, Trick Shocks and tons of Bling. For my 50th birthday I decided I was going to have the XR that I was denied as a kid. I was going to model it after the RC Honda Factory Bikes and the following pictures is what I created. I started the project with a decent starter XR just over a year ago and fired this bad boy up right on my birthday. Nothing sounds cooler than a piped XR :) Thanks go to RE-MX & AJ at XR-Mini Racer where I got most of my parts from. It was fun to make but my wife wants me to get my childhood shrine out of the house LOL. Hope you like it."
