Sometimes it's not about what the part has, but what it doesn't. In the case of our rear hubs, every extra ounce of material was carved away or pocketed out. Parts Overview »
The best research lab for improving part design? The racetrack. Since day one, we've developed parts not to be purty or affordable, but to win races. Race Team »
We've built up and torn down dozens of our own race bikes. Probably more often and/or at the last minute than we'd care to remember. Race Bikes »

As we mentioned on our home page, it all started with a brake pedal. Kim Reeg had picked up a XR50 for his new-born grandson, and he quickly went to town upgrading the bike to go faster and to better accomodate an adult rider (No point letting the bike sit there waiting for the tike to grow big enough to ride it.). He used his machine shop to prototype a few parts and once the bike made an appearance at a local track, interest grew and other
riders began asking where they could buy his parts. From there on out, each time he
develope another custom part, he'd make a few extra to sell. Even as the pitbike
craze grew and leveled off, this processed stayed the same with Kim designing
for his race team first and then extending the production run to sell the excess
to customers.

What started as a hobby led to a full-time business of performance minicross parts.
Never wavering from wanting to create the best product possible, Kim went on to develop our legendary one-piece billet swingarm. The original Reeg MX swingarm measured 3 inches longer than stock, but as competition and wheel sizes grew with the introduction of the mid-size 12 inch class, so too did his swingarm. The GP swingarm measured 5 inches longer than stock and offered 10.5 inches of travel. At races and trade shows, many commented that it was a work of art machined from a 36 lb. block of solid aluminum down to its final weight of 3.6 lb.

By the time that Kim had designed and machined his GP aluminum frame, he had essentially created his own race bike from the ground up. Hubs, swingarm, subframe, tripleclamps, handlebar risers, brake pedal, mastercylinder mount, caliper mount, axle spacers, axles, down to the aluminum axle adjusters were all machined in shop in Northern California, and designed to outperform anything else on the market.

American Flag Made in the U.S.A. Although a few of the quality components that we use in our kits are sourced internationally - Elka Shock (Canada), Excel Rims (Japan) and Formula Brakes (Italy), all parts manufactured by Reeg MX are designed, tested, machined, assembled and finally packaged in Northern California. In addition to our own American products, we utilize quality components from other U.S. brands including Billetware (Chromoly Frames and Footpeg Mounts), Buchanan Spokes (Heavy-Duty Spokes), Guts Racing (Seat Foams and Gripper Covers) and Titan Mega (Graphics). The reason for using domestic products is more than just national pride, it's because these parts are the best available.

Reeg MX GP Aluminum Frame
Probably the product we're most proud of. The GP aluminum frame exemplifies everything that we've pursued while creating performance parts. Forgetting about cost restrictions and changing how you think about what a motorcycle actually is or should be, the frame has been engineered more like a suspension bridge than a bike. Although it's weight is roughly the same as a stock CRF70, the frame hugely out performs a stocker in every way imaginable. It's incredibly strong, free of welds, longer, provides a steeper headtube angle, and its cradle design allows for a more rigid chassis.

  • All Billet Aluminum Components
  • Aggressive Headtube Angle
  • Accepts 12" or 10" Rear Wheel
  • Designed Specifically to Pair With Our GP Swingarm

If it weren't for racing, there wouldn't be a Reeg MX. It's what we designed parts for, what we stayed up way too late for, what we worked weekends for, what we lived for, race season after race season and year after year.

Although we've never snagged Vegas outright (with a best of 2nd place in the 10 inch pro class and 3rd in the 12 inch), we did beat out much larger teams and stayed competative with a tiny budget and only a few helping hands (With a quick but extemely sincere thank you to those hands that helped!).

While our customers purchased our parts to race through-out the U.S., Europe, Australia and Japan, our own race team has shown up on race day in Northern, Central and Southern California. We've put countless miles on our trusty Suburban and Ford truck hauling bikes to race in Washington State, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas all to put our products to the test.

Bookoo Arenacross Series
During the short lived Bookoo Arenacross series, we provided Ryan Beat with a pitbike racer to tour across the country and compete along side his full-sized Fiberwise team bike.

For the first leg of the series, Ryan rode a Reeg MX CRF70 with a Takewaga 124cc Dual Overhead Cam engine, but as the series wore on, we swapped out the high-revving Honda for a torquey Kawi that was built around our 3rd Generation KLX110 GP Rear Suspension Kit with Classic Honda providing tune-up support for the engine.

Ryan jokingly mentioned at the end of the season that he made far more prize money racing the pitbikes portion of the series than he ever did riding his big bike.

We usually always had at least two race bikes in the process of being built up or torn down at
our shop. During the ramp-up to Vegas we would have up to seven bikes crammed into the
walkways of our shop. Although we never had a showroom, we could always impress
customers who dropped by with a race bike decked out with our latest prototype project.

To outline why the bike's swingarm stickers read, "Reeg CRF", Reeg MX's original name,
"CRF50s" was chosen because, at the time, CRF50's didn't exist. Kim wanted to
illustrate that he was dedicated to making the performance version of XR50's. When
Honda released the CRF50, we found ourselves focusing on creating parts for
70's too, and our name changed to "Reeg CRF." As the mid-sized 12 inch
class grew in popularity, we soon became involved in
developing parts for Kawasaki's and Suzuki's, and the journey
of our company name ended with "Reeg MX."

In the picture to the right, Kim's standing with two of our
earliest race bikes. The CRF/XR50 has a one-off "over-the-top"
brake lever with a heavy-duty pull rod. The production
version of the lever ran under the footpeg mount for durability.
We wouldn't accept compromising to develop a lever that
could accomodate the various shapes of side covers
available as it would make for a flimsy lever that'd wander
up and over the footpeg with an inconsistent response feel.
The 50 is also running a full lift kit and handle bar risers that
measure over eight inches in length.

The CRF70 in this photo was one of the first of its kind as Kim pioneered the lighter Honda in the midsized class with disc brakes front and rear. The original Reeg CRF70's used modified stock frames, braced and outfitted with custom shock mounts.
