Ok, I know there are a few posts regarding this, but not much beyond rim suggestions. This is my first ground up build and of course the 150r doesnt seem to have alot available for the conversion.

*I found Excel 17" rims at ProCycle which seem a better deal than the Haans offered @ motostrano.

what else do you crf owners think is invaluable to start out?
*Front and rear sprockets??
*Chain??
*Brakes??

The EBC rotor kit http://www.crfsonly.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/181_184/products_id/2036 along with the caliper and master cylinder from a CRF250/450 (02 to 06 I think) is the most commonly used front brake setup.

You don't need to do anything to the rear brake.

I've run 50 and 52 sprockets with the stock front and I weigh 165#. Lighter riders run bigger sprockets. No chain change need unless it is too short with your setup.

Once you have the wheels and tires, the next big thing is suspension. You'll need to get the suspension stiffened and probably revalved to work for asphalt.

Next, the front brakes... the brembo kit on motostrano seems to be the "standard" for racing on asphalt.
