I know most of you have a couple of years on me, but do any of you have kids that ride? I know RXC does, any others? I've been thinking of doing a weekend camp and ride geared toward young riders and their parent(s). Any interest?

My 125 motor is in an old sawed off cardboard barrel that once transported abrasives for sand paper. I'd upgrade to a crate but all the holes for ventilation and weight savings would cause a loss of fasteners and other small parts

These were some fine red milk crates we used as seats on a ride. I should have liberated one that day.

Ditto, morbidly curious. Maybe it was a cloning project gone wrong.

No, but we do have cafe racer/chopper/bobber/streetracker restoration paint in a can, this stuff works it can instantly change any random Japanese bike from the 70's-80's into a genuine ton-up cafe racer, hack of the fenders, move license and taillight to the side, slap on some Clubmens,combine with bad tires squirt on the rich flat black rattlecan and you're ready to hit the streets, so I'm sure we can get Tom's milk crate to the appropriate color, we have the technology.
We also have an assortment of 5 gallon Home Depot/ drywall mud buckets for those small hard to carry bits

Now that sounds like something a 125 motor might fit into without losing its assorted loose bits

Tell me more about these buckets. Can they be tipped on their side? Do they have lids? Can we paint one ace hardware royal blue? Removable handle? After its painted do you have a NOS Suzuki logo? I'm thinking we could call it the adventure bucket. KLR riders and their non waterproof milk crates, ha.

My little guy is a little young yet, but my nephew is getting into riding and I would bring him to one.
