    Cr80 4stroke?

    No muffler yet so I can't finish the exhaust, but I did get started on it.

    Cr80 4stroke?

    Yep, dunlop MX53. Easiest tires I've ever spooned on. Probably helped that I let each one sit on a shelf above the heater for an hour before install.

    Cr80 4stroke?

    Waiting on new bearings, rotors and sprocket. Still waiting on the dellorto, but I can start on the exhaust. My bends showed up, but the muffler isn't here yet.

    I've thought of building something like this, but maybe with a metal top.

    Machine Shop / Fabricator for a frame help!

    Well the material will be spendy, and it would probably be worth looking into somewhere with a waterjet to cut all the pieces out. A few years ago metalsupermarket charged $60/hr for waterjet. That would by far be the least expensive route to go. As for welding you'll probably need to look up...

    Truing stand is finished and the front wheel is true and tight. The stand spins free enough that you could probably balance a wheel on it.

    Truing stand is almost done. It's using 6002 bearings, and will have a 15mm hard chrome linear bearing shaft. Shaft should be here tomorrow, cones are aluminum to test it and I can always make steel ones later.

    Spokes got here, so go the wheels laced, but not trued.

    Cr80 4stroke?

    New subframe got here. Plastics fit properly now. Waiting on carb and spokes, need to order exhaust tube, but while I wait on that I'm making a truing stand so I can lace the new rims.

    Same, I've got the pellet gun by the back door. But instead of feeders I have a big old pecan tree in the yard. So I wait till they are in the tree and pop them.

    I've eliminated 14 squirrels in less than a week. They haven't tried to get back in the attic since I started popping them, but if they are on my roof or in 1 of my trees I'll shoot them. I'm out of the colobri 22, so pellet gun is doing the job.

    I've had one of the 3/8 harbor freight impacts for a couple years. $130 with a battery and charger, might not be as good name brand but it works pretty good for bike use.

    Yeah, that's why I went from trying to trap them to just shooting them. If you trap them you have to move them atleast 3 miles or they just come back. The trap wasn't working and I don't want to spend money fixing things they tear up. So 13 squirrels have met their end, and I'll keep...
