    I'm wondering how this bike is doing now ?

    x3300 are you still happy with all the mods. Or did you improve more things ?

    Still one of my favorite bikes. Since we haven't heard anything in a while, I can only hope that he's too busy riding.

    Nice bump. One of the best builds ever. Hope all is well.

    Hope he's ok. Epic thread and build - someone needs to make a few of these bikes I have a stock PD and have always wanted something with more 'legs'.

    I bumped into x3330 yesterday at Hollister Hills OHV!
    He's fine. Broke a collarbone earlier this year, was out riding a MX bike yesterday... talented rider!

    ORGS is fine (don't know if he was on that when the break occurred), had an oil cooler leak and that's now solved.

    hardwaregrrl you may have me confused with him... I was working with him on his "HPN" style frame bracing a while back...
    I had a rather bad get off (well, the landing sucked) and shattered my fib/tib/tib plateau. Took a solid year and a half to recover.
    I'll be finishing up the bracing and my GS build later this year. Went on hold due to the accident, wife divorcing me, and having to move.
    Fun stuff.

    This build certainly was an inspiration to many.

    I wish these pics were still available.....anybody still talk to Geoff? Was hoping to take a peek at the frame gussets.

    The pics are still there. Just drag your cursor over the https//###.jpg between the "##", then get the picture to come up in a different tab. Slow, but you should be able to recover what you want. Context can be found from the text surrounding the pictures

    I'd love to see some more pics of your bike! My frame is being straightened and they wanted to send templates to the water jet guy. I sent Geoff's drawings to them and wanted to show them pics of his frame....thx!

    Even with shipping, won't it be cheaper to just buy a set? SWT has a reasonable set of frame bracing bits for €120.

    It's very reasonable but not complete. It lacks the rear shock mounts on the swing arm and the main frame, and the HPN tank mounts. Manuel is out till the 22nd of June and won't be shipping out till he gets back. Frame guy is ready to weld my bike by then.

    None of the pictures show up in this thread.

    Please do not show. NO SHOW = no inspiration.

    It will save me money in the long run!
