    Ditto, ditto, ditto:deal. Some of us had a little money cobbled together from our paper routes and bagging jobs at the Wegman's, -- enough cash to get the necessary parts/hardware to convert our stingray bicycles to mini-bikes by simply stripping the bike frames down to nothing but frame and handle bars, ubolting a a piece of plywood above where the crank once was to which we'd bolt a 3hp side shaft Briggs Reel lawnmower motor. 2 go cart wheels and voila. A mini-bike. They were the bomb when we young. I remember not having much money and support of the parents for those sort of endeavors and having to be resourceful.:evil

    I've sat here and read all 30 pages of this ride report. Thanks Dave.

    Memories are coming back to me that have been lost for a long time.

    Thanks again.

    Man, I clicked on the link and almost went directly to subscribe. Then I saw it was an ad :huh :lol3

    I hope you can work things out without having to sell her Dave. Then again, even if you do I'm sure you'll find another worthy ride :thumb

    Hey there - I was in the middle of a conference call (it's still "winter" here, after all and I'm waiting for the new Pilot Road 2's that are apparently on backorder from Oneida Suzuki's online site despite the fact that I only live 12 minutes away from their shop...) and was multi-tasking as I am wont to do. I read your post and my thought processes ground to an abrupt halt; someone had to repeat their question like 4 times before it registered and I was able to regain my composure. :lol3

    My karate students think I'm unflappable so let's keep this between us, shall we? :rofl

    Edit: geez, I'm even writing run-on sentences. I need a beer.
