November 2019 Forum Retirement
Due to lack of extra personal time (and too much spam), I'm retiring the forum and setting it to a read-only state. No new registrations or posts will be accepted as of 11/09/19. However, all information will stay up and searchable. If you spend a few minutes searching, you'll find the answers you're looking for. We may re-open the forum next spring.

Very nice, Very clean. You can be proud of that build.
Could not tell you who made my rears, but they are off a old ATV.
8x7 Rim I am guessing 22"
Keep in mind this is nothing more then a test Rig for the motor.
But I figure, its light. Its not broken, Maybe if I add enough tube and redo
the front end. It may scoot around well enough for me.
whats your motor?

It's official, I need to code a like button to the forum. Billy, I think you, Gary, and Mike (Cheetha) have convinced me on doing more stuff with industrial engines. I'd like to see more on that VC 460. What kind of HP/TQ are you looking at compared to the Predator 420. Normally I just look up all this stuff on my own, but you're right... we need more activity here! Maybe we can start up a new section.

Thanks again everyone. If you want to post pictures of your racks, I won't complain :) Every one of them is slightly different. Chris's definitely turned out the smoothest. Billy's was the one where I figured out a new way to position the racks that made thing much easier. I have it all jotted down on my cheat sheet. Not sure I'll do more racks, but if I do it'll be that much easier thanks to y'all. (y)

And a request.. if you guys are happy I would really appreciate a review on Google, BBB, and/or Facebook if you don't mind. Buttons are below! And of course if anyone is unhappy for any reason, I'm right here. Thanks again guys.

Saturday, Sunday and Monday are rack days! Thanks everyone for being patient while I sort things out here. Last night I left an early Easter egg in your accounts... a $50 store credit for everyone participating in the group buy. Let me know what items you're interested in and I'll do stock checks for you. I really appreciate you all working with me on the time frame. (y)

I'll be machining and shipping in the order that payment was received. But if anyone has an event or special occasion planned please let me know and we'll work it out. Thanks again guys!

Also, many have asked about rack boots. Unfortunately I'm out of stock. I have a whole box of short-size boots, but no long sides. Looking at the one full / one empty bins gives me that feeling when you can't find a matching sock in the drawer. :?

I just use my $50 credit on the red shocks.
In cart I found and clicked on the credit and it was applied.

If your order does not. well this is a Travis issue.
I'm out.
