    Love the old TL 250. I tore up a lot of back country roads and swamp land in Georgia and Florida on those things.

    Not uncommon to see LWB 2 seats. With the mid engine it allows all your extras (fuel cell, battery, tool and storage boxes, etc. ) to be mounted low down in the frame  behind the seats . Generally lowering the center of gravity. Looks like like a really good base to work from.

    Thanks pat for fixing that seal and adjusting e- brake. My wiper motor sucks. U have to spin the armatur by hand to get them to work. A refurbished motor that works would be sweet. The only other thing that was weird is that when u swivel around in the front seat 2 many times it turns the nut on the button side so it unthreads its self and becomes loose. Not sure if u can put a weld somewhere so it does get loosen up with a few spins of the swivel seat. 4 bolts that mount the base takes the seat out and u can tighten up and weld. Thank you guys for fixing my shitt😜😬🤪

    Maybe just safety wire it ?

    😆 😎 In my younger days I was pinned in on a small lot in the city…Got out to the country where there is plenty of room and no regulations against hoarding wonderful junk!

    I used to be you, then things changed. But Publishers Clearing House has promised to give me $1000.oo  week, so I plan on getting there again !

    Hurts my head to think that just a couple of years ago I had 4 rail projects going at once. The nearly done winter rail, two half done rollers, and one chassis that I stripped down and was converting to mid engine before painting.sand rails 111113 002s-rail 031813 002hi-jumper 091913 003

    How sturdy are those PVC bikes? I love the idea. I just wonder how much squeaking and flexing is going on? More than JJ’s rail buggy?

    I had similar thoughts about strength, so did a short test structure. Looks like properly done it should be strong enough.  On the down side my hands hurt so bad and lack the strength  that even  using the tubing cutters is difficult and the pain pills in large enough measure to be effective turn me into a zombie. VA appointment scheduled for the 6th to consider possible surgery has been rescheduled to the end of June, so I guess this idea gets kicked on down the line.

    So, with the change in directions in life last year I got rid of pretty much all my VW stuff, all my big shop equipment, a lot of tools, and most of my excess vehicles.  Now for the first time since I was around seven I don’t have a project (or several) staring me in the face every day. Also now staying away from people as much as possible and even working with the rescue horses has left me with a lot spare time which I don’t deal with well. I may have found a cure. These are adult pedal carts made mostly of PVC and old bicycle parts, and I can probably build one in the living room. What do you guys think ?1f6fc7b0edae3faf7c8541c99dd7a394318633390a497dd0f8397aa38bf463f2bee41619ce0099dc61382f55d9b57fd0fffcb11f4696a987231808181dac14cf

    GSXR is kind of like the monkey and a foot ball deal. Not sure how it would effect John, but I did a short ride on a friends bike. Quick as hell and fun, but was hard on my lightly damaged back.

    One of those boxes I dropped on you guys should have a whole bunch of e brake stuff in it.  There were a few old steering columns as well I think.
