Muskoka Ice Riders

OK, winter's here and it's time to have a dedicated thread for the three of us who have ice tires and are praying for cold temperatures with no snow.

My wife just had a rondesvous with a buddy of mine, and he paid her with these. Watch your fingers!!





So far it's just me, drcool, and Mtrhead73.........Anyone else??

The only deal is if you break it, you fix/replace it before the following weekend.
Deal?
you're probably the only one that thinks I can ride a motorcycle and I thank you for that.

So......whats there to break? maybe if I break it enough will I have to buy the whole thing from you and call it even Steven?

Looking for 19 and 20 inch slicks for fronts and 17 and 18 inch slicks for rear. If we use old knobbies we need someone with tire lathe. I think I could turn out some pretty good stuff with some practice and a ship load of screws. Looks like aprox 250 for screws and about 150 for tires. My guess is Jordan smokes a set a season. With a little TLC I bet a set lasts me 3 years(we'll see).

I need to upload some pics of my current state but I think I'll hold off until the rear is in process.

1500 screws in a pail

Is this old KX still available? It could make someone a great deathtrap. I could probably bone up a set of beginner tires out of a set of dirts I have layin around. All we'd need is a bucket of gold screws. They were great for limiting terminal speed. I don't even think there is anything to break on that one.

I tried that about 30 yrs ago. Lost lots of skin putting all the screws in. The bike broke partway through the ice once and that ended that. Pretty good traction though..

Does it have to be an mx bike? Not sure if I want to take the dakar. I was going to buy a beater but ended up buying an excel supermoto setup
Merry Christmas to me

I do have an Ascot sitting in the shop. A little tough to start in the cold, but I think I could find some 18" knobbies that would fit it and stud them up. Not alot of suspension on it but it is kind of a flat track style beast.
What do you think ?
