I rode the 200 for the poker run and pitted for them for the race..
I am hoping they put together a video soon of the event along with another from last fall's Enduro-Cross in Everett Wa. some of my Fav. videos for shure..
This is the video I took at the start of the first wave, sorry for the shaky camera work.. hopefully you can appreciate from this and other videos of it what an event it really is..700 bikes on first wave alone.. handlebar to handlebar with a Le-Mans start, cannon goes off and run 100 yard's to your bike and in Cliff H's case you get so excited you get on Mr.Big-Wheel's mount till you realize you are on the wrong bike and someone is pulling you off to get on your bike ! lol !

A couple pre-race shots of the boy's;


These are shots from a professional photographer that captured the whole mullitia by accident, he was shooting the guy out front I think going for the holeshot that crashed very bad, notice Cliff and Mr.Big-Wheel just getting to the right bikes as he crashes out front...note the extreme separation of rider and bike by the 3 rd shot..thank God he walked away..don't know how..







This is the video I took of the start of the first wave,,the remark Bad,Bad,Bad was the rider in fron of them crshing in the pictures...
you can pic-out all 4 of them amongst the 700 riders...

">

I would recommend all Big-Wheel owners that can make it next April to meet us there,,it was a blast..
**sorry for the finish to the weekend.. The English Nightmare and Hollywood had arranged for a friend to take their bikes back to Alaska by trailer along with a Kawi the Nightmare bought for hos son, Unfortunately they were all stolen from the IKEA lot in Kent WA. as the friend was about to head back ..trailer and all ..(yes.. the same Kent that's always on COPS) !!

It's good to hear that everyone is doing well. Sucks about the bikes being stolen. Thanks for the update.

Nice restoration. I wish I had a machine in life I loved enough to dedicate that much time to but I love everything powered by an engine with wheels/props/ tracks

Ohhh no. Mann that hurts my eyes. Such a nice Rv90 and than a crash.
I have the same one fuly restored in my garage. Only the tirepump is missing where I am looking for. Are there still many RV90´s in the US of that type ( blue with white stripes) ?

Based on my searching for parts... It appears the blue/white was the most common in the USA. I've seen the red and the white one but mostly blue.

Took the Brat & BW200 to a carshow today, in the process met another Big Wheel owner and gave him the info about the online community. He owns 2 BW200s and a BW350.

Wink 2 x BW 200 & a BW 350

Now that's just greedy !!! hahaha
I can't even find 1 in Australia, and if you were to find one they would want over $ 4000 Aussy dollars for it!!!

So when the Missus says no to your Acquiring yet another one just say
" But Honey it is an Investment"
Because they are definitely going UP in value not down,,,

Or you could fill a 40' sea container and send them on Down... lol..

A bw200 sold on ebay a couple of weeks back. $3k.
They are rare here but do occasionally surface. Between ebay, gumtree, bisales etc... 2 or 3 a year it seems.

I think you nailed two of the better options for upgrading to a disc brake up front. Please send pics of your project in process. Good luck!

Marty
Hey Yupper,,
Is the front Rim the same on the Tri Z as that as the BW ? And another option, do the ATC 250R forks fit the BW triple tree?

Regards

Nope, just the bottom end which is the tough part to source, it still turns over and changes gears. Also, came with the seat, tank and plastics.
