Thumbs up my griffon

it's definitely been a struggle! but as with all 2 strokes they are so much easier than 4 strokes and they go together so much quicker!

it dwarfs my bsa b25 and I've got that on longer stanchions and rear shocks! it doesn't look it in the pictures but to sit on and ride it's another world! always been impressed with the size of the griffon and challengers!

Cool my griffon

yes it sounds good aswell! Nothing like a modern 2 stroke but ive had many a lambretta in the past with 225 and 250 race kits sounds similar to that! old school 2 stroke but you know it's got a bit of a kick...

the exhaust had had some welding done on it before it came to me and an even bigger straight pipe was welded on to I v' d it and tapered it smaller so I could weld on a disc and put the all alloy silencer on.

the phone camera and YouTube never do the sound justice! it's still loud but no one near as loud as without a silencer
