    Hi yall! Just finished my first build and have around 25 miles on it so far.

    Its a GT LTS Full suspension mountain bike with disc brakes, a Dax F80 engine, Sick Bike Parts Shift kit and Pipe & '93 Suzuki JR 50 fuel tank.

    Nice 'dirt bike' ;-}
    Keep an eye on that thin 7-speed, it will snap pretty easy just street riding, tearing up the trails or popping wheelies is not advised ;-}
  6. Definitely one of a kind. Nice build! Looks rugged.

    You have my dream bike: a GT LTS Full suspension mountain bike with disc brakes

    I'm hoping that some day the marketing cycle returns to full suspension bikes with a a full length seat post design and rearward suspension.

    I want a GT LTS so bad !!!

    They are dandy bikes and comfortable and all, I built this one over a year ago, or should I say the customer tried to and then brought it to me to 'make it go'.


    That one has a NuVinci 370s rear hub however so not a thin chain derailleur and it has held up well according the owner despite about every performance enhancement there is.

    I didn't ride it off-road but didn't pay any attention to speed bumps either ;-}

    Now thats nice! I have seen that one somewhere else on the web and saved the pic along with every other moto LTS pic I could find.

    And thanks everyone for the kind words.

    I agree with everyone else's assessment. That's a great build. It looks FUN to ride.

    Great bike, the Sick Bike Parts crew built one of those too.

    What is the difference between a NuVinci 360 and a NuVinci 370?

    I have read about NuVinci hubs failing when used in a motorized bicycle application, hence i have not installed one on my bike. I can't take the chance of hub failure when a great distance from home.

    Heres a video of a ride earlier today, no hard thrashing yet, still breaking in the engine.

    Thanks Rough Rider and MotorBicycleRacing. I saw the SBP GT LTS video before I built my bike.

    Sure wish I lived closer to the Motor Bicycle Racing scene! (Grange) I would be at every race!

    I want it NOW !!!

    We need to start a petition to get SickBikeParts to reproduce the GT LTS frame!
  18. I want some gears!

    All i can say is that a motorized bicycle fitted with a SickBikeParts shift kit bolted into a disk brake equipped GT LTS frame is nothing short of engineering porn !!!
