Hey Andy, could you touch base with me ? I have a local guy who wants to build a Suby powered hill climb buggy and I’d like him to be in touch with someone who knows what they are talking about. Thanks, John 970-872-4804 or firstname.lastname@example.org
I just read through all this thread and saw this and I connected the dots of what a cool group of people I have found. HUGE THANKS to John, Andy, and all the KCW crew for helping me with my cheap skate race car project! I have found both new friends and a new passion.NewboldParticipantMarch 27, 2020 at 12:28 pmPost count: 177
Update on the Hotchkiss bug I got from Alykat:
I managed to get my first paint job done in spring time weather. Far from perfect but I could have done worse. Not sure about my color coordination but I used a bunch of mixed up old free paint from a body shop friend. Working on putting in some IRS trailing arm mounts now before I put the body on. Cheers from the motorbike shop in Fruita, Keg-orator is full 🙂NewboldParticipantMarch 17, 2020 at 9:38 amPost count: 177NewboldParticipantMarch 17, 2020 at 9:35 amPost count: 177NewboldParticipantMarch 10, 2020 at 12:15 pmPost count: 177NewboldParticipantFebruary 21, 2020 at 9:37 amPost count: 177
This one needs a lot of love. Engine is locked up, frame has an interesting farm boy buzz box fix near the drive chain, but if you want a project you should come take a look at it. 810 E Grand ave in Fruita. The weekend weather looks to be a bit suspect so I will probably be around shop this weekend. my cell is 970 819 21o6NewboldParticipantFebruary 20, 2020 at 5:58 pmPost count: 177NewboldParticipantFebruary 20, 2020 at 12:06 pmPost count: 177
Rad. -I am still smiling! Lets do it again! I might even move some of the finger/head smashing car and trailer bumpers a little more out of the way to minimize the blood shed 🙂 But it does build character (like we need any). It is my race training program for 2020 😉NewboldParticipantFebruary 12, 2020 at 8:01 pmPost count: 177
2Stroke Stuffing makes some entertaining and educational videos.
Last June at the Steamboat vintage motocross races I pitted next to a nice guy and exchanged emails. He turned out to be a retired engineer for Snap On tools and wanted to get 2Stroke Stuffing (from Norway) to build a 50cc land speed racer to bring over to Bonneville and come August it all came together. Naturally I was to be the pilot probably because of my willingness to hunch my dumb ass carcass over anything I can catch a thrill on. (I was politely told that my lanky thin 200lb frame was exactly what was needed and I cant argue with an engineer). Any hoo after the bike was built and shipped across the fucking ocean, the event was rained out so we hung out all week at my shop and took the bike out to to the Utah/Colorado state line section of old HWY 6 and did test runs blowing up several pistons, cranks, and other parts. It is like laying belly down on a 16.000 rpm screeming skateboard. It was a lot of fun and come this year I think the bike should be in form to break some 50cc records.

Great googly moogly that was FUN!!!! I’m so stoked the KCW crew came out. Thanks! What a blast. I am seriously impressed with everybody’s mini bike ability on loose gravel. Especially the tuck and roll skils. Dang does my tail bone hurt today!!! We’ll have to do this again.NewboldParticipantJanuary 29, 2020 at 8:44 pmPost count: 177NewboldParticipantJanuary 26, 2020 at 10:39 amPost count: 177
I keep going back and forth. So much! I think the practical direction is more class 11 style being I want a daily driver and it has swing axle but I already have some big fenders and John’s Jackman Off Road wheels, it could look so tough, and I do have one IRS conversion under my belt… So hard to decide but at least I have some core body stuff to work on while I hash out my vision 🙂NewboldParticipantJanuary 25, 2020 at 4:01 pmPost count: 177
