Textile Riding gear wanted:

I've accomplished my goal of dropping 60 pounds in a little over a year, but as a consequence, my riding gear doesn't fit me anymore...pants just won't stay on (I could think of worse problems to have). So I need some different stuff. I'm 5'11, 165 pounds, 36 inch waist, 30" inseam. I'd prefer to trade some stuff, but I'm open to cash as well. Not looking for anything fancy if it's a cash thing - just something with pads that's not about to fall apart. I can't spend too much cash on this, so if you have a bunch of nice, new stuff, it's probably out of my league...unless you wanna work out some sort of trade. I'm looking for textiles - not solid mesh or leather. Please shoot me a PM if you have something that might fit.

I have a Cannondale F900 SX Lefty 26er that I'm willing to trade for a nicer set of gear. Might be open to some camera gear trades as well...digital and film stuff. Also have a Yakima roof rack with lots of bits. Whatcha got?

Hi, ladies and gentleman. I'm looking for a 21x1.60 tire and also a tube if you have one. Cheap, or free! Used but not dead. Preferably a 50/50. I'd buy new but have no idea if this trailer will actually work.

Thanks!

I have a Revit Cheyenne I don't use anymore as I am into a Klim Jacket now.
A pair of thier pants as well. Has both liners, warm and wet. Well used, took me to Copper Canyon for a few years.
Still decent kit, just long in the tooth. You will not be called a noob. Plus I doubt I would fit into the jacket easily. I'm out of town, but I'll give you a hollar when I get back.

Nick - were you looking for shocks or forks recently? I've got some spares if you still need them.

I actually bought a new 50/100cc off ebay for $25 shipped. Should be here soon.

Thanks, though, I appreciate the offer.

Well, that's probably much better than my 30+ year old shocks of questionable heritage and reliability. Didn't want to offer them till I was sure I actually still had them. Stumbled across them yesterday.

Probably have a spare tire but not sure that I have anything that skinny. Think all mine are 3.00. If you can use something that wide - you're welcome to it.

I've been offered a few larger ones. I just think they may be too much shock for such a light trailer.

Like the title says. Also looking for the hardware and rubber cushions/isolators.

These are the brackets that secure the lower front of the tank to the frame.

Take a look at some 6 v golf cart batteries. example: Trojan T-605 210 AH
Long life and superior power.

Use to use golf cart 6V batteries for radio solar sites with excellent results and I now use a pair for my camp trailer and have yet to run them down even after 5-6 days. They have more space below the plates for crud before they tend to short out (like all batteries) and more liquid hieight above the plates for longer topping interavals.

Orange KTM Fender

Looking for a fender, preferably orange from a KTM. Not really particular on type or style or what model it's from. Just need one to cover the rear wheel on my trailer and somewhat match the bike

For stand alone solar one should be using batteries rated in amd/day rater than amp/hour. Or if in amp hour be on the order of 1000+ hour. Also remember to size for as little discharge as uou can manage and they will last longer.

How can it be fun if there's not at least an outside chance of dying?

I'm sure you have battery recondition companies closer, but I use American battery here in C/S for all my vehicles and my travel trailer. Generally about $30.00 a piece for car batteries with a one year warranty. I forget what they charged for the big sealed battery in my trailer, but it wasn't much more. I think they'll recondition batteries you bring them as well.

WTB Stock KTM springs

I'm looking for some stock springs for an 04 KTM 200 EXC, I think they are 38's. 40's might be ok too. Thanks
