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.

    Been working on a quick scooter build-up, way more mild than these beasts but ive already rode it a ton and had about a dozen other people ride it around, tons-o-fun. Apparently my phone deleted all of my pictures but here is where its at now...

    So far I cut the frame and stretched it 12 inches, hacked off the rear end and welded on a 20 inch fork, and made a deck out of a cedar plank....everything was going to the scrap yard so pretty good for free?

    Yeah ive been stoked with it, everyone I know has ridden it around already and all love it. I figure everyone else was going with the big wheel in the front and it was way easier to make this level and look cool doing the big wheel in the back. had a friend try and put a brake on it while I wasn't looking...but what fun is it if it isn't at least a little dangerous!?(brake was on for maybe 2 minutes before I took it back off :))
