Bike of the Month - Aug 2011
1981 Mugen ME460
Robin Gregory

Traralgon, Victoria, Australia



This bike basically started as a spare frame left over from six CR450's I bought for the resto in VMX issue #24.

I decided to find every after market product I could to make something different and have both the stock bike and this one. The engine is ME460 top end, balanced and blue printed.

The front end includes what you see, Simons with fox bar clamps , Sun rims, Magura levers and throttle control, and Preston Petty front plate.

At the rear you find a Fox shock, DG pipe and silencer, Ceet tank cover, Barnett and moose parts, Custom made seat, and a few custom made alloy brackets for that personal touch.

I have not even sat on this thing, so don't ask how well it goes. Might even sell it for the right money. Build time about 150 hours. I do all my own work except for 2 pack paint and rezincing parts.
