This is the video for the FatCat450R. Truly the ultimate BigWheel.

This is what Honda would have been building by now if only they had stayed in the incredibly lucrative fat-tire market.

This is a short video of an ATC250R with a Missile conversion kit.

The BigWheel could stand to lose a little bit of weight and going two-stroke would be one way of accomplishing that......

You should build a CR500 powered big wheel.

Yamaha claimed 27 hp for the 350 way back in 1987. I think both of these bikes are on their original top ends. I'm guessing 20hp still remains at this time. With my poor studding skills, I break the tires loose all of the time. There's adequate power for a fat, out of shape old dude like me.

Besides, if I showed up somewhere on a fire-breathing, 500cc BigWheel, then people would expect me to behave like this:

Of course, if you wanted to stay with Team Blue, there is a Yamaha option in the fat-tired spectrum:

Don't forget about the Suzuki RV 125 and 90 two strokes.

My bro in law has two 90's, the one I learnt too ride on 30+ years ago and a parts bike. He has been "going to rebuild" it for about 10 years. After watching Mr Bigwheels vids I might have to take control of the project.

400psi,

Thanks for having the patience to watch yet another video.

LC8TY,

I would love to have an RV125 to throw in an airplane when heading out to the bush. I think you should immediately commandeer the project. If you don't actually start it until 5 years from now, you'll still be moving twice as fast as your brother.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Question The New H6llyw66d's Trail Tips

Have you ever drowned your bike? Then you probably did it wrong.

http://www.youtube.com/user/MisterBi.../0/1EtHUzfdYqE

H6llywood's Trail Tips will show you how to do it "properly."

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

The BW 80 was two stroke.

RVs are like Rokons as in they are utility/ag bikes. The BWs and FatCats are play bikes.

The tire pump on the RVs was a neat idea. The RVs were also street legal and had a H/L sub trans.

A friend has a BW200 that needs some major attention, it hasn't run in years. Last time it was running he had just put a new CDI on it. From the exhaust smoke it looked like a two stroke running 1:1 mix. I would do anything to stay in front or I couldn't breath. I think his clothes were combustible at the end of a ride.

The BW and the FatCat are a blast to ride, the most fun I ever had on a bike. Riding them on pavement will tighten your sphincter though...
