    INDEX PAGE

    _____________INDEX PAGE____________

    There are two builds in this thread.



    The first 8 pages are dedicated to the YZ-24 MOTOBIKE.

    SOUTHERN FLYER starts half way down page 8.

    Sorry for the confusion, but with ruffly 4 weeks left in the competition, it became apparent that the YZ-24 MOTOBIKE would not be finished on time. Rather than having no completed bike to submit, I chose to start over with the SOUTHERN FLYER as a way to complete a build on time for the final submission on August 1.


    Thanks for your interest, Jim

    Thanks Jeremy, you actually helped push me into the thoughts of building this frame after you asked about it in Tennessee!

    Me too... it's going to be at least a week or more before I can start! :(

    Definitely watching this one, I hope you manage to keep it here in traditional, don't want it getting lost in the craziness next door at anything goes...

    Plus, I don't want to compete against it!

    Yea, that's the challenge. And to make it even harder, the seat will be fixed at the lowest position. :?

    Thanks, I think I've got it worked out on paper how to not alter the frame at all.

    Thanks for the interest guys. I can't wait to get started on it myself! I'm sure that I'll be wanting the wasted time back toward the end.

    There's still a lot left to do on my other projects before this weekend. The irony is that right now it's looking like rain for Atlanta this Saturday, so I may not even go to the Tour De Fat. :(
