Final: Mixed class 212 cc spec. engine with an Unlimited class bike (Scotto #3 blowing us away on the straights) including Super 2-stroke china engine bikes. Gilbert's (#79) amazing retro hand-built bike and Baird‘s (#33) custom 2-stroke beast made for great racing. I was running on a leaky rear tire that barely made it to the end!
Grangé Motor Circuit for SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing event October 19, 2013. Another great racing day with near perfect weather. The track was great as usual and a fun group of racers made it another hit event. Tight racing in most of the classes made watching a treat. First time on the track for the new 2-stroke build with mixed results and first place finishes on the 160cc 4-stroker in the mid-range and 11hp Class Finals.

Back at Grangé Motor Circuit for SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing event October 20, 2012. Great racing day with near perfect weather. If you get a chance to make it to one of these races, even just as a spectator, you'll be hooked on the fun. The nashmoto bikes took second in the 49cc class final and first in the 11 hp class final.
Shot from February 9 to April 2, 2012. The complete build beginning to end.
Many changes have been made to improve on the initial design and build. The original NuVinci hub could not handle the 196cc engine so a fixed gear drive his handling the output now. Clutch related vibration is still a problem. Even so, topped out at 51mph last race and finishing 1st. in the final at Grange Motor Circuit June 2, 2012.
Finally put together an edit of race day footage. It's very nashmoto specific, but you get an idea of what it's like to race the Grange track - great fun. Thanks to Neil of SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing
for putting this together and doing a great job.
Special thanks to Ken for unexpected video coverage and Ann for great photos
she shot throughout the day. See you at the next race in April 7, 2012

This SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing event October 22, 2011 at Grangé Motor Circuit, a technical track that's demanding on the riders, was very fun. Nashmoto finished first in the first moto and managed to stay competitive in the 2-stroke class finishing second in the second moto (first in the 4-stroke class), reaching 38 mph in the back section and 32 mph on the uphill straightaway. There's also a short slide show video here

The first parts arrive after a month of research, guesswork and too much google time in front of the computer. The Honda engine is amazing, but some of the other parts aren’t exactly what I expect. All part of the process ...
