    My Fake Grom built from parts from a 2000, 2002, and 2003 XR70's I found cheap on Craigslist. 125cc Lifan engine. The most expensive thing was converting a 12" wheel to a 14" hub. With a new Baja Designs Kit the total cost of this bike is around $1600 Btw, the front fender is actually yellow. I accidently picked a picture which I had altered with Windows Paint app to see if a black front fender would look better.Fake Grom BLACK.jpg

    Deoodles, I looked at a Grom recently at a Honda dealership, and it seemed like the shape of the seat forces you to sit so far up that you're almost on the gas tank ... which would make for cramped shifting and braking (with your feet). I'm about 6' 1", so I'm not exactly NBA center height. Do you actually sit on the back half of the seat, or am I misjudging it? I didn't drive one but I did sit on it in the showroom.

    I actually do sit further back on the seat. I purchased an aftermarket seat and sculpted the foam over the last year or so. Lots of test rides on it as I worked on the shape. Its about ready to get upholstered and become the seat I use all the time.
