1. I wanted to give everybody a heads up on a change that I'm going to make for folks who want to use the For Sale section of the forum.

    The forum has been running strong for almost 11 years now and I (along with our awesome moderators) have tried to keep things running smooth and trouble free during that time. I'm thankful for everyone who has helped make this a great community to participate in.

    As you can imagine, there are some expenses that are involved in maintaining a site like this and I've tried my best to keep from passing that expense onto the user over the years. The forum will always be a free resource for people to communicate, learn and share.

    In order to offset some of the expenses that the site creates, I'm going to be changing the Gold Membership upgrade on the forum. Starting on April 1, 2017 the current "Gold Member" upgrade will be renamed "Pro Member" and this $20 annual upgrade will be required for posting items in the For Sale section. All members and visitors will still be able to view the For Sale section for free, but a Pro Membership upgrade of $20/year will be required for listing items in that section for sale. Current Gold Members will be converted to Pro Members and will have access to listing items for sale until their current upgrade expires.

    Thank you for your understanding and I will give further updates as the upgrade date approaches.

    Re: BigDaddy Scooter "tribute to Ed Roth" Gettin a 80cc Motor

    I picked up a 80cc engine kit with everything but the rear sprocket for 50 bucks! So Big Daddy is gettin a motor and should let it go 30/40 MPH!!! I started making a mounting plate but Im waiting on the sprocket to line it all up before welding...This should be FUN!![​IMG] 8) :mrgreen:

    What if you spun the tank around so it's higher in front and slopes back?

    Whatever you decide, this is gonna be cool!

    Cheers,

    Thanks for all the kind words Fellas!!! I think I will use the tank but I want to cut the pinched seam and weld the two halfs together,move the petcock to the fat side and shorten the filler neck a half inch just to clean it up abit...Heres a couple pics with the tank turned around,I still need the rear sprocket to figure out where everything will get mounted,Im getting anxious! 8) :mrgreen: [​IMG][​IMG]
