    I do believe BC is working his ass off building a bike and making good progress. Not much off the shelf for the Husky.

    GO BC! :freaky

    Our tshirts are finally in production and you can check them out by clicking HERE

    Keep checking the blog for more information on the store grand opening. A few more decisions need to be made before we're ready to start selling!

    Bill's bike build is going great although sleep and a normal diet have taken a back seat to gas tanks, brackets and skid plates.

    Hope you enjoy this photo of the skid plate that I pilfered from him :)

    Sweeeet Tee! :clap:clap:clap

    You guys fab that skid plate up or buy it? If fabbed that thing looks like a money maker after Dakar. I bet a bunch of Husky riders would pay for one of those.

    Great job...need more pics though. :lol3

    Just got in from another late night of fabrication. I know everyone is in suspense waiting for updates but currently they're not critical to the success of the bike build. Time is tight and the priority is getting it done. I hope to get some detailed updates soon.

    TW, I designed the skip plate, made the mock up and templates. I had a top notch fabricator assemble it. After seeing the final piece the first thing I mentioned was a possible retail product. It won't be cheap but it's bad ass.

    First time mounting tires with mousse, hope I never have to mount another ever again...

    Very nice bit of work BC. :bow Serious money maker for you guys after the race.

    I heard that twice the amount of recommended lub is the key to easy mousse install and max performance. You using the Michelin or the Mefo mousses like Ned?

    Going to ride locally this Sunday, as I'm still waiting on a few protective parts for the Berg. Appreciate the offer to run with you down South. Be safe and ride fast. :lol3

    The SMIB sponsorship offer is still open and you don't have to sell t-shirts......:D You tell me what is needed to get a SMIB sticker on the primary and backup bike and I will do my best to raise the cash.
