    You may be able to get some ideas from this bike. We had one for our son.

    The image didn't come through, but the bike was a Yamaha BW80.
    I race, therefore I am

    I certainly drew some inspiration from the BW80 for this bike, we never had one, Iíve never seen one.

    Drivetrain wise they are quite a bit different obviously; the 80 is chain drive with different suspension setup.

    There are some people that have adapted the 80 forks to the Zinger models for an improved front end (Tri- forks donít have any damping, just the spring and some bushings).

    Anybody know of one? Might like to have one; ya know, for reference...

    Woof, only chance Iíve got of owning one of those is if I find one in a dumpster, or build one... haha. If I told the wife I was going to Florida to pick up a bike I think all the locks would be changed on the house and the shop would be burned flat... eekers.

    Been working on some ProE work to layout the designs and sizes of the current rear shaft drive, axle, hub, etc. right now I think Iíll be fabbing a new axle shaft, hub, plus the swing arm section.

    Maybe this week Iíll have a draft of what some of the pieces will look like, but pretty doubtful. Weíve been in limbo waiting for Jr so had downtime, I think thatís gonna change... ha.

    Pretty thankful that my parents held on to some of the toys that we had when I was a kid. Always has me thinking that maybe I should be trying harder to keep some of the toys that Iím flipping these days.. Some of them are quite fun; but I just donít have the space and canít give them all the seat time that they deserve, so pass them on for the next to enjoy.

    Well - we made it! Our baby boy, Beckett, was born Tuesday afternoon. Everything has gone great so far, and we just got home today. Iíll be off work until sometime next week to be with he and Mom.


    I may end up working on the Bi- design during nap times, or I may not... weíll see.

    Primary focus is obviously to make sure that Beckett grows up to be a great builder!
