and I have a shock fender guard thingy. I took the forearm plastic piece off of a pressure suit that I had destroyed, dremeled some off the wide end, drilled some holes in it and zip tied it to the swingarm. Took it out for a test today, and it holds up, although it tends to keep leaves on the tire more than before, so I may only put it on for muddy runs.:thumb:

yeah, it's a proto bike and rather than put an expensive powdercoat finish and stainless fasteners on this one just to test function, we bypassed that, next frame will have stainless grade 8 bolts and the frame will be either ano or powdercoated

You should take some time to read the thread.

I like it Cooter. What happened to the big hit???


I'm running these proto's for a friend of mine to help him out with his bike co. that he's getting off the ground

I traded the big hit for 3 crack rocks, 2 vials of black tar hoo-ron, and nine nor-cal pinkie sized doobs:D :thumb:

I don't know what the one in the middle is, but I hope you didn't wake up next to Bikerfox after all of that.

It'd be cooler if you did. Drugs are cool. Don't forget that kids. No matter what anyone says, drugs are cool. Why else would rock stars take them?

Wow, I have to say that is one of the ugliest bikes I have ever seen. The welds are awful, the tubes are obviously cheap crap, and one of the stays is cracked clean though. The design of the back end virtually gauranteed it would break there since a very large amount of vertical load is transfered through that little brace... there's just really nothing good about it. That and with the design of the front end it must weigh a **** ton. I know your friend made it not you, you must be some friend to risk your life on that piece.
