    is When minibikes are outlawed,
    only outlaws will have
    minibikes. You can have mine
    soon as you pry my cold dead
    fingers off it.

    Knowing when to stop is the trick. Let me know if you wanna get rid of that Holy tank. I was looking for one to chop up.

    Yeah, I have a blast cabinet and was thinking ill take the frame and swing arm down and repaint them. Then I read your Jack thread and I want to do all the little stuff like brakes and such. Hmmm. Well see

    i have two tanks that seems to be JBwelded. No good tanks. I have no good petcocks either. Sigh. So yes I have one for you.

    Looking good! When I see guys on here post the words "blast cabinet", a wave of envy comes over me.

    Yeah it's nice to have a blast cabinet.

    So I got the frame and swing arm sprayed gloss black and repainted the muffler with BBQ paint. Heh

    So I need new fork legs, a headlight, front tire, and want BMX bars... Easiest solution is to take a spare CRF front end with a retro looking tire and put those on! Sweet!
