When we have “Twisted Development” in the title of a story, you automatically expect a full-fledged, high-dollar race bike. Twisted Development (TD) is known for privateer power that can run with the factory bikes. If you want to race against the factory teams, Twisted Development is the go-to race shop; however, this test of a TD-built machine is a little different. We never thought of Twisted Development’s Jamie Ellis as being sentimental about the bikes he builds, but this bike was on the nostalgic side for this high-level engine performance company. We get it, though. The MXA wrecking crew is head over heels in love with old smokers, so we couldn’t resist riding Twisted Developments 2005 Honda CR125.
