    Nice Job jason, dosent even look like a conversion and that is a real sign of a professional job.

    The Radiator in the Tecate postion will look great too, It can be hidden quite well and won't mess with the classic lines of the 350X. An added advantage is that it may even weigh up the front a little bit, help out with all that wheelie action that you are surely going to experience.

    I'm looking forward to someone doing an 84/85 Tecate fitted with a KX450F or even a KX250F donk now. I'd love to do it but unfortunatly these Tecates are as rare as rocking horse poo in Australia. I've only ever seen one 85 in Australia and that was back in 1985.

    Rocking horse poo, that Is too funny. Hey mate thanks for the compliment's lol. I will need one of Aussie's rad covers real soon, I hope he's figured out how much they are.

    I was really expecting to have the radiator by now, I'm so bummed. All the weight I can get In the front the better. My buddy Is makin me some tripples for my CR125 Inverted forks. That will make It complete, well almost anyway.

    Jason, is the rear-end higher than normal because of the longer swinger? Are we going to have to get some sort of lowering links? It will be even taller with the 06 swinger.

    Looks SWEET!!!!

    yes It's 3leggeddogs old X. I have wanted to build a 4 stroke for a while now. I had Intentions on using the stock 350x engine, but my buddy made me a deal of a lifetime on the 450 engine so here It Is.

    Derrick, I will be getting a lowering link for the rear. The 450r shock Is real stiff like I said. I will get a different shock than the stocker. That was the highest I could mount the shock & keep the geometry the same as the 450r. If I could have gone higher with the top shock mount It would have lowered the ride height, so a lowering link Is kinda a must for me.

    If anyone wants to convert something just get the motor & frame, I will build It for Ya. I have posted alot of pic's as I built this.

    JASON... Thats awsome!! I can't wait to see it run at TF07.
    My only concern is that the ZINGER60 sitting beside it will take away some of its "wowfactor",LOL. I know I spent a lot of time looking at the mini-R at TF06. You do GOOD work!! Keep it up!!

    Thanks guys. I get great enjoyment from building stuff. I have found that alot of nights just laying there wide awake at 3:00 am, you can think of some real wild stuff.

    Mik6, thanks. The zinger conversion Is gunna be just what the little guy needs. Good suspension & plenty of motor. Can't wait until I have them both done.
