This custom, polished dirt ped is the Queen of the garage. The Flight Surgeon started life as a new Tomos Flexer frame from England, a crate A55 from Heeters, numerous parts from Treatland, and some from MLM and 1977. Photography by Pixo2. The name and headlight art comes from my job position in the Air Force, which perfectly describes this flying machine crafted with surgical precision.

Performance: 44mph (71 kph, still not broken in yet), 115.4 pounds (52kg) fully wet, 65cc (44mm) cylinder kit, large-bore MLM pipe, 21mm intake, 19mm PHBG carb w/ K&N.

Coatings: exhaust ceramic coated, piston friction coated, head & cylinder head dissipating, gas tank KBS gold standard.

Custom: metal work on engine mount and shock upper mounts (Ace Cycle, Las Vegas), sand blast and powder coat black & blue (Ram ProLine, Las Vegas), headlight art “The Flight Surgeon” and tail art “Ace Cycle,” black oxidized spokes and fasteners throughout. Tires are Shinko SR244 3.00x16 and barely fit!

OEM: new stock new-gen Tomos forks, triple clamps, shocks, seat, hubs, brakes, rims.

Build time: 2015-2016, ~500 hours, $10,000 in direct costs.
