Mini bike somewhat done

Well I got the XR50 built today. It's been a work in progress and there still are some things that need to be done. I still need to get the new swingarm and the correct sprockets but other than that its ridable and is tits. The bike started as a 49cc engine 3 speed, then 88cc with race head, and now it's a 117cc stroker with a prototype race head (huge ports), 4 speed, oil cooler, new rims and tires. This thing is a beast started as 2.5hp and now is about 20HP and can't keep the front on the ground. Here are some pics. The first one was when I got it oh wow 5 years ago and the other one's are from today (thats 5 years later and a lot of $$$ later). Only thing I don't like is the gold flange on the header but that will get hot and turn color.

Wrong, LOL. It's my mini and I'm only 19. I don't need kids yet. All of us that go riding all have full size bikes but the mini's are so much funner and expensive. It works out for me because I'm only 135lbs. and that bike has more than enough power to move me. If a 5 year old was on it it would simply just fly. Sad thing is I have $300 into my Yamaha YZ450F. The mini has $4K into it but well worth it. I got a 4130 chromoly frame because I crack the stock mild steel one, then fixed it and bent it like spagetti. If it could do this with an 88cc motor just hink what I'm doing with a 117cc stroker. BTW that's me in the pic when I was 17.
