$17 @ PA

You have NO idea how cheap I acually am :lol:

Really, I just need to bring it in well under the cost of buying new. Otherwise it's not worth it. Gotta factor in gas costs, paint, hardware, beer, blow, etc.

don't use bedframe metal. It is super shitty steel.

If you aren't in a super hurry, I can spread the word. I may even have something in the garage.

Got some pink paint left over from our budget trailer repair. you are welcome to that.

Just checked out in the shop. I have a 60.5" chunk of 1.5"x1.5"x5/32"

A little thinner, but should hold what you need it for.

Nice! I'll get back to you on the pink paint.

No rush on it, maybe the next ride. Sven's been itching to get out to the valley.

I had a "Bed Buddy" in my super duty and it was awesome. Tires could not wander on rough roads (the Hurley) and it had plenty of tie down spots. i think it was 80$beans though, so not real cheap….

WTF, Over?

I had an awesome day at Richmond 8 Track yesterday.

I spent 6 hours beforehand fixing my bike because there was an oil leak. Turns out I mis-installed a hose and forgot a washer. Also, the crankcase gasket was toast from hacking it up with a screwdriver during a previous repair. The washer was easy, but the gasket was difficult because no one in the lower mainland had one. I went to napa and bought some liquid gasket and covered the gasket/edges with it, then closed er up. Drove to the track and it was all good.

Sand was nice and dry, easy to ride. Track was difficult because the sand is so deep but it's still super fun.

shit, that's a lunch time ride for me! Right next to the river, right? You can see the tracks on gmaps.

what's the deal there? Just an open field? Do you see many riders or every get flack for riding there?

That's the spot.

It's exactly like it looks on gmaps. flat, open sandy area with dome dunes to jump. On the other side of the train tracks a moto sand track is carved in. It's great for learning, you can really see your progession.
