But man do they work.
Bought off ebuy for under 50.00 almost new condition.
I bought my wife a cheap "Ground FX storm" so she could go, and it actually kicks butt too.

You live in a old awesome area.. I'm jealous. would be out once a week no doubts.
My area only pre dates into the 1860's

@ Trini2....
I'm stalled out on truck.
I'm picking it a part already..ahahaha
What you see is what you get my good friend.
It was a hoot to build and I learned a ton on it.
Give me a couple weeks to get it in the mail and on it's way to.NY

It's on to cleaning up the mess and starting some other junk.

Wow, your bikes are looking *way* better than my first try!



I think that cock-knocker was drinking while making the frame...

I just found out that i really like epoxy putty to make stuff like seats.

Was a hoot burning my fingers with the fidgety small pieces.

Epoxy...great Idea.

Great share frizzen. They are fun to create right ?
A little clean up and yours will be golden.

I really like how you did the rear triangle, and on the next one i'm going to steal that idea to have less hot bars floating on a puddle of solder while i burn myself. The 3rd hand clamps at my solder station didn't help very much...

You're right, that's really fun. I just may have to knock together a Bike Shop storefront to go along with some of the other scenery at the RC truck meets.

How'd ya make the tank and what'd you use for the paint linework on your balloon cruiser?

These are also WAY easier to make than real ones, i haven't blown through any tubes with my arc welder on this one!

Arc welder was a great giggle too...

Thinking my best creation... with most of my fathers work and brains put into it...used his fancy shop too..hehehe
Is , we built a pulling sled. The local guys are still using it. stacking up to 100 pounds in the tray to boot.
Theirs a thread on it some where I ferget though.

I was amazed to see the new style stock honcho pull it all the way with 75 pounds in it...pretty impresive.


No update guys..sorry been work work work...eat shower sleep work..
No rest for the propane guy. Post man aint got nuttin on me...ahahaha.

I am getting the bug to build a ole school flat bed 2 ton truck though.

And make it functional....whoaaa.... I know ahahah.

Might need to look into ruining some 1.9's to get the 1/10 scale looks and apearence Im after.

Good point rover, can't have it get too dull around here.

Heh, "great ideas", normally people just say "weird ideas", or they suggest other things i'm possibly full of...

The last couple meets i'd been to that had a pulling sled, had it set up for a semi 5th wheel so i couldn't try my bumper pull hitch dumptruck. None of the rock crawlers had one before they went off to that facething to post about meets.

Mail man gets strange Gov breaks now, "oh it's too cold, snowy, hot, pretend holiday." not the old-school "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds". Propane-guy has to go to work or people freeze. (Propane Guy is a weird superhero, but he's got a cool vehicle, and ya know he's not lying when he kicks in doors and says "i've got gas!")

Thanks for detail pic, i hadnt noticed seatpost was even bolted. I like the fork bearing nut too. That's really slick
