    there was actually 2 of them, theres a brief glimpse of another earlier prototype later in the video, that had a front end as the rear shocks.

    goofy looking, wish mine had that

    I got it running, & altho it needs a little tuning, it took me around the field, and I can tell that when tuned, it will be a friggin beast!

    But then, I'm used to old/slow bikes :lol3

    Hey Doug,

    How bout a picture of the new dirtster? You made any new mods or are you following same game plan as the one you are leaving in Europe? Took my bike out a couple times lately and my neighbor got a sportster - made me a little lonesome for mine - the I rode the vx again and was happy with my beast.

    Enough of that though - how about more adventures digging through red neckistan...

    God bless you brother :clap

    my biggest problem, is when I get home, I'm so busy working on the next thing, that I sorta lose interest in the previous one.

    And again, I do apologize for that. Im gonna finish the c-ball one tho. I promised I would. Luckily, I didnt say when.....

    I'm hardly one to claim a great mind, but, we're thinking alike anyhoo.

    Last year while drinking and watching E-bay I saw an ST-3 Duck motor going for a song, some kind of X-mas sale . So , I bought it.
    Then I wondered , What am I to do with this motor ?
    So , of course I think, Off road sidecar.
    Then I start looking for parts and it starts looking X-pensive.
    So, I buy a whole bike, that runs and proceed to put 1300 miles on it and listen to negative stuff from my "friends " when I tell them it's coming apart to be transformed into a DP sidehack.
    Then a goofball turns in front of a woman , she nails the goofball , his Kia swats down my Duck at a gas station.
    Then I collect a settlement from the goofballs Insurer and continue to gather sidecar pieces with no more greif from my friends.
    Happy ending ? At least a happy begining.
