    Hey, it can't hurt to ask.

    Thanks for the tip on the springs. I definitely need to do something as the front is far too soft. I am planning on doing a fair amount of dirt 2up riding, and am going to get the suspension tuned. I was just hoping to save a few bucks. I'm a long legged 6'2" and can easily balance the standard bike.

    This is a long shot, but...

    Me, my GF and the doggies are going to be moving on June 1st. We currently live in East Boulder and are looking to move to a reasonably priced rental home in south boulder, lafayette, superior or louisvile. After living on the second floor of an apartment complex we want a yard. I also have a ton of moto's so a garage is also mandatory.

    Shoot me a PM if you know of anything for rent, we are open to suggestions and are respectful working folks (im an mechanical engineer / construction manager in boulder and she's a teacher in golden). Frankly I would love to own a home and am very handy, but work is too variable to justify such a long term investment.

    Looking for a Scotts sub mount kit for a 05 KTM 250. Many different years should fit. Just the post and mounting kit, already have the damper. Also, just the post would work as well as I'll probably end up going with the HDB sub mount eventually.

    Looking for a set of 7/8" handlebars. Steel or aluminum, it doesn't matter as long as they are straight. I have a set of 1.125" bars that I can trade you for if you need some. They are cut down for woods riding though, so not much room for extra stuff on them.

    Is that the mystery bike that was sitting on a trailer at WestFest last summer?

    Yep, that's her in running form. I was thinking I might be able to paint the new subframe without disassembling the bike, but after letting her sit in the rain at WF there was enough surface rust that I needed to tear down the whole bike for paint. That was probably a good thing.

    She's been a lot of fun this winter:

    I entered her recently in the ice races. The headlight, license plate bracket, and rear view mirror are easily removable for racing. There is a flattrack series at IMI that runs from April to October (http://banginbars.com/). They have a hooligan class (basicly street legal bikes) that I think this bike would do well in.

    Hey Scott-

    I've been looking for a CRF 50 for my (going on) 7-year old and when I find a good one, I'll be looking to sell his Oset 16.0.

    I'm high on the W Slope, so you might well find one closer, but if you don't, maybe check back with me.

    It's been a great bike to learn on and as he grew, I made a makeshift seat that he could sit on.

    He's gone from learning in the park:

    To fire roads with dad

    But now he needs the next step.

    Shoot me a PM or email me at todd(at)mountaintrip(dot) com

    I guess I'll take the opportunity to throw it out there:

    f anyone's got a CRF 50 in good shape, lemme know!

    I have some steel bars that you are welcome to have. They look like OEM Japanese. Does the usual Friday delivery work? (We really ought to move closer together :deal)

    If anyone has a Corbin seat on their bike and could take a picture of how the switch is wired up, or draw me up a schematic it would be greatly appreciated.

    I have one for my R1200GS and it seems to be shorted out, Fuse blows when I turn it on. I am hoping that maybe the switch got wired up wrong and that the seat is not shorted. There are more than two wires on the switch BTW.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Thought I saw an ad a guy in the springs put up on Craig's saying he did this sort of stuff and could come out to your location and cut the screen for ya to your liking. It was in the motorcycles for sale section.
