Interesting....
So can this chasis run a regular sized rear tire?

It was designed to use a front-sized tire in the rear to match the scale of the lower classes.

Yep, the design is meant to be an intro into moto3 class with a stock motor. In addition though, the bike can be upgraded with a rear tire and other motor options to run in the faster classes as the driver improves. More can be found on the Website.

Very nice, thanks for posting that. When people see the versatility of the frame, I hope hey will build a few.

I'm not understanding the "rear tire" thing. Skinny... yes its different and more "scale looking" but if one were to plunk down HUNDREDS of dollars for a "stock" chassis, one would think he could "upgrade it" to race with the Non-Stock someday.

Just sayin'.

Will a "upgrade" kit be available to change part of the rear end to accept a regular sized rear tire?

Like this?

It's as simple as a new swingarm block and a few pieces such as the front pulley and belt. We can easily put a kit together if there's demand.

Kevin a regular rear tire will drop in. The stock class requires two front tires. How you set the bike up depends on the class you want to run in....the frame is meant to be versatile.

Moto2 class with M3R

Or just add a front brake to the M3R and run in superbike - I finished second in the UK Superbike Championship with this chassis in 2014.

When you drive a Moto-3 or see one run then you'll understand re: the lighter rear wheel. It's not just for a scale look but it's so much lighter then the standard rear and the bike is much more nimble. In stock we run 17.5t blinky motors and it's far easier to accelerate the smaller tyre than the larger one...........

Plus when we started the Moto-3 class the cheapest tyres were 15 for a front (including moulded spokes) so 30 a pair. Other tyres were more expensive and some required you to buy extra spokes on top as well.

The bike converts very easily to a Moto2 setup with just a few different moulded parts and a different belt as Steve stated above, it is a great bike to run in this guise and was my choice for the world stock class in Sweden last year.
