Those are insanely fun!! I had one the first of this year. They make big bore kits that is easy to do and makes a big power difference. There is also a rally in Georgia every year.

There is a 50cc rally in Suches GA this weekend.  I don't have time to go tho.

It will get 62-63 on flat.  I seen 72 going down Butterfly Gap yesterday.   :21

Anyone know a good place for hot rod parts for these things?  I think I will get a pipe and carb and then a full cylinder upgrade too. but for now I am going ot leave it alone.
I had a Derbi GPR and I made my own slipper pipe from an aluminum drink can. Just that made a 5mph top end gain.

So are you in the butterfly gap area?  That's where I grew up.

Very nice!

We had a Derbi 50 but had to sell it to get Draik's 125. It was what the wifey learned to ride on.
