Here's my rally tower I designed in Solidworks and finally got cut and mounted. Details lacking, but progress is finally being made.

Looks like a retro XR... Some HRC graphics from the mid 80's would make me drool!

Great looking bike for sure!

The 1 on the Dirt L is made by Mohard Racing in Kaliforny .


It's cool looking and fuctional ,

But the Scotts or Xr's only is just as good or better for a litte cheaper .

Nice!!! How much does it weigh? Got any more shots of it, especially from the rider's point of view? Is that 1/4" thickness and what alloy? Really cool man.

Same here. I've never bought anything from them for the same reason. I did buy a plastic welder for my boss from them as the real deal was almost 7x more and we weren't sure how much welding we would do!
It's held up so far. I may buy one for myself as I'm getting into plastic welding/patching/repairing myself.
There are two threads in the Garage section.
One for positive HF purchases and the second for POS HF purchases.
One of the POS posts was about the zip ties breaking when you tighten them.

James Renazco shaved my seat down and narrowed at the front. Helps my short ass greatly.

We had a little ride to eat(RTE) today. 53 inmates showed! Some had already left before this picture was taken.
It was kind of a going away party for the guy in the yellow stitch(front row)ORExpat. He just retired and is moving from the hell hole that is Washington DC to his other house in Oregon! We had lots of ADV bikes. Even had some Old School bikes and two hacks!


More pics in the RTE thread in my sig line.
