EDIT: and sadly, this guy is being sold
my wife and I are moving and it would be easier on us and our wallets if we sold it. I HATE to sell it but its not as high on the priority list as other things. Here she is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/330683923092
if she doesn't sell it won't make me sad at ALL, but it WOULD make things a little easier, financially and move wise.
Well I finally have enough parts to officially start a build thread. I've started this with build with a donor GY6 bike and have started to acquire all the parts, from members on the board(mostly used and abused parts), I need to make a ruckus around it. So far, here are the parts I've acquired:
And here is a shot of the "new-to-me" parts next to the recovery ruck with a peek of the donor bike in the background:
And here is the donor. It was a 2011 TaoTao that some kid had layed down. The bike still starts up in the current state. If it had a front wheel i could rock it the way it is lol:
More parts are in the mail so I'll update as things come in.
And this explains why I've had so many WTB ads in the past month or so.
The following list will get updated as parts roll in.Thanks to: ubuntu

Some how my my wife talked her mom into riding on the back. This thing hauls even with 2 people on board!
