Baja Dirt Bug Transformed

PAR Posted on

In the March 2010 issue of Cycle Canada we tested the Baja Dirt Bug, a 98 cc mini bike in a box, that we bought for $400 at Canadian Tire. Finding the thing completely gutless, we turned to our readership for help, asking them to figure out a way to give our Dirt Bug some more power. Christopher Van Hamme and his mechanical engineering students at George Brown College took the challenge and carted the Dirt Bug off for some extreme modification. Six months later they brought it back transformed. We met them in a parking lot to find out what their improved Dirt Bug could do. CC’s web editor Derreck Roemer rolled the video camera as Neil Graham put the super charged mini bike through its paces.
