It is quite comfy, my ex brother-in-law asked me to store the trike and the chair for him, then he disappeared. I just got a wild hair and decided to make a chair that I can drive around. That is a nice trench digger, has it ever actually made it up that hillclimb? From what I understand, only like 14 people have ever successfully climbed that hill.

BTW, I missed the post where you talked about power being your friend and using throttle control. I understand your philosophy there, I just have a problem with throttle control, I know how it works, I just can't let up sometimes when I know that I should. That is why that much hp in a lighter machine would be such a problem for me.

yup you are right only a handful have topped the 1000' foot monster. petey krunich did it last year on a bandit 1200 powered bike, i have only got 714 feet, but that beat out 28 other riders. last year i took 7th in 2 classes and 14th in the big one. every year i get closer.

Hey now, we are not completely off topic here, the conversation about 3 wheeled vehicles with no practical use is kind of what this thread was started with. Besides, you started the digging trenches idea, and he started the thread, so I think that entitles him to a little room to wander.

He has a My Little Pony? Now that is gay. Although, I did eat some My Little Pony fruit snacks once, while I did not feel fruity afterward, I did find them quite tasty.

Dirt Demon. That Lazy Trike is freakin awesome!! LOL!! I love it. I don't think I would be caught in public riding it. But, its one of a kind!! Two thumbs up. I did notice its missing a beer holder and remote. Does the leg rest take the place of the foot pegs!?

Is it ok if I post that pic on honda350X.com? My fellow Xer's will love that contraption!!!

Feel free to share, and yes, the foot rest will be essentially replacing the footpegs as I will be mounting the brake pedal and throttle at the feet, and the shifting will be done by a hand with a lever placed in the left arm rest, and rest assured, a cup holder will likely find its way into the right arm rest. I might even place a cooler on the back in place of the original seat.

      Hi, All

      I started this project a while ago.. I have decided to make one thread I can continuously update..

      So , here we go. I got this Raptor 80 in really bad condition.. Rear end frozen, Engine toast, tires dry rotted, tons of rust..etc.. They admitted they beat on it very hard.

      Since they do not make these with a drive shaft anymore I decided to restore it from top to bottom..

      These are photos of when I got it home.

      Next up, the tear down..



      First, I needed to tear it down and determine if the rear end was still good... As we all know... That is where it would be cost prohibitive to restore if it is trashed..

      Got it completely stripped down and I lucked out... The rear Drum brake was caked solid inside with dried mud. That was causing the rear end to lock up. Took off the rear brakes and the rear end spun perfectly smooth.

      Once I got it all stripped apart I needed to take the finish off all the parts. I am going to be powder coating the frame and many parts.. Once the finish is off each part it will need to be sandblasted to white metal .. The guy I use for powder coating gives me a hefty discount if I bring the parts to him ready to go.

      You could just sand blast, but that would take a long time to get the finish off. First I used Aircraft Paint Remover.. That stuff is pretty toxic Goggles and Resperator are required. That quickly gets you down to the metal... Then you can sand blast to white metal pretty quickly...


      I had another thread I had started about a problem with the tear down... It has some great info .... here is the link... It is about removing the frame bushings. ....

      So my parents have not let me get my license yet and I need to get around to gets parts and stuff.  Answer: Yamaha CW50 scooter.  This is a 2-cycle self-mixing scooter that so far, I am really surprised with the power output and speed.  It reaches about 45mph since the speedo has been disconnected and has plenty of power for two riders.  Its stupid looking, but with some work and a title and plate, it'll take me around town..  My issue is this:  No key.  I bought it for $150 from a friend and he bought it from someone for $100 who wired in a switch in place of the ignition.  That guy got it form his neighbor who's renter left it behind.  The scooter will run with this switch on or off (kill switch on handlebar kills engine)  To get it tiled and a plate so its road worthy, I need to get the ignition working either by a replacement key or a new ignition.  All wires are cut to the ignition and the switch turned on the power to the signal light switch.  Also, the 2-cycle oil was leaking out the carb, through the air filter and onto the scooter.  also, it runs great, but its making blue smoke with throttle and the muffler is wet with oil.

      (I have new signal lights for it btw)  So the issues I have with it summed up:
      No key (need new ignition) smokes burnt out headlight-  can I replace them with LEDs?

      Since we were kids dreaming of owning our first ATV, some of us were also dreaming up how to get that ATV up on two wheels! Doing a "wheelie" is what it's called and traditionally, it refers to the art of getting the front end of your ATV up in the air and riding on only your back wheels. We've done them with our bicycles and graduated to dirt bikes and quads at some point. Some riders have even got their ATVs up on the side, leaning to one side on two wheels, now that's a challenge in itself! Check out some of the wheelies our members have done and posted into our ATV Wheelies & On Two Wheels section in our Gallery!
      Here's a photo shared by @blahhhh with front wheels in the air!

      @sanddevil has her wheels in the air out in the sand, great shot!

      We mentioned it earlier, how about this duo with their ATV on the side! This cool photo was shared by @Z400Pilot.

      It gets even crazier with this photo posted by @ojest808!

      And then one of our personal favorites posted by @NY_Vmax_Joe with legs to the side and wheel up on two at Pismo Beach!

       
      It's hard not to love looking at wheelie photos, they just look like so much fun. Just remember, always wear a helmet and protective gear when attempting to show off!
