My buddy Brian Hunt commissioned this bike to be ridden in events with The World Famous Wheelie-ing Elvi, a group of Elvis impersonators on minibkes. Built from a CRF50 frame and engine, the rear of the frame underwent a bit of chopping and addition of a new subframe top loop with stunt pegs. The engine is bored out to 88cc’s, with heavy duty autoclutch, high volume oil pump, race cam, a 20mm carb and a lighting stator. Brian wanted a super white bike with BMW livery, number plates, a larger and softer seat modified from a CR85 donor (to avoid the dreaded “fiddy-butt”,) and dual exhaust. Keeping the vintage Z50 vibe, metal bodywork including a 1988 z50 tank, fenders, and number plates were used. The stock brake pedal was lengthened, a KX140 kickstand used, extended front forks and heavy duty springs, and an aluminum swingarm finish out the chassis. Because the Elvi sometimes ride in Parade of Light events, LED ground effects and riding lights were added.
