Let me check in the morning. How fast do you need it? If I can get it I can bring it to the meet and eat next week. I would for sure have it in flat plate. Either black iron or galvanized.

he'll stick anything anywhere

A piece of pipe would also work, as would anchors in the floor with tabs welded on to the changer. If I ever get a changer thats what I'll do. The price of steel is nuts.

I'll look around the shop Monday for some.

I'm pretty sure I can find something that'll work.

Where are you located?

I welded my Harbor Freight unit to a spare tire/wheel assembly I had laying around. Sturdy, stable, and still portable....

SOLD: 99 Suzuki DR650 FS

SOLD I am reluctantly putting my DR up for sale. I bought it about a year ago and probably put less than 1000 miles on it. It runs great. Previous owner put a jet kit in it, changed out the starter gear, and converted to 520 chain & sprockets. I bought it with the intention of doing some off road riding but found its way too heavy for me. I'd keep it but I already have a wee-strom and there's too much overlap between the two bikes, so I'm looking to sell this and possibly get a WR250R/X. Bike is in really nice condition for its age. Has somewhere between 12 and 13K miles. $2800

Maybe a long shot, but is anyone interested in trading a 1982 Honda Nighthawk 750 for a XR/DR/KLR 650? I might could put a little cash into the deal, but not a big pile. I love ol' Boobella (nom de guerre bestowed on her by the previous owner) but garage space and cash are both tight and I'd prefer something dirtable.

I'm happy to provide photos and details if there's anything remotely resembling interest. She has been my daily transport every spring/summer/fall for the past few years and has toted me to CADAVR once and back and forth to Indiana multiple times. I'm not much concerned about the cosmetics of a potential trade but I would want something mechanically sound.

So let's horse trade!

I've proven that to myself on more than one occassion!

Practice makes perfect... or my case, mediocre with lots of scrap.

Twin Cities' Sidecarist Needs New Wheels

If any of you know of a used smaller AWD SUV/Car for sale let me know. Had an unfortunate meeting with a contractor truck/trailer rig on 694. My Suzuki XL-7 has officially become a parts car. Now I must ride the sidecar rig for primary transportation.... which ain't all a bad thing...
