I have always been a sucker for 2 stroke motocross bikes especially the odd ball ones that nobody else seemed to like. At the time they were thought of as being best and fastest bikes out there only to be discovered that when ridden they handled like a bag of asholes and had a power band that only hulk hogan could hang on to and that's kinda why I dug them. I have owned quite a few newer motocross bike and quads and hell yeah they handle better and out perform. They are truly amazing but the one thing they didn't possess is the pucker factor you get out of an over powered shit box brake/handle system that was some of the bikes produced in the 70s and 80s. So here is a few of my favorites that unfortunately were right off of a list of some of the worst motocross bikes ever produce.....according to who? Sure as hell not me.....
Suzuki tm 400 cyclone. I remember hearing this bike as a kid at a local mx track thinking what in the hell is that! It seemed to only make power from about 5,000rpm to 5500rpm but holy shit it was awesomner!
The Yamaha sc500. Never owned one of these but always wanted to. Rode one for a little while and had to pry the seat outta assholeio... Yeah!!!
Had one of these for about 1 week blew it up and it was more awesomner! Heavy shitty suspension but the pucker factor was 5 star.

Cowboy needed some bars built for his sporty chop, which is coming along nicely, so he told me what he was thinking and we master mind out a pair. And yep that's a real sugar bear on the front of that bad boy.

Been doing a fair bit of fab work this winter and finally decided to build a proper welding table. I didn't want something big that couldn't be moved around so I order a 2'x4' sheet of 3/8 and enough 2" 1/8 wall square tube to build a frame that would hold a bike if need be. And some 3" pig iron wheels. Total cost $105 not too bad not too bad.
My welding stool is super tall and I wanted a table that would pretty damn tall so I could stand and work on it as well. Bean took his lunch break off and cut all the square tube on his lunch break so I didn't have to do it with my chop saw. Thanks brother! Broke out the mig welder which took a little getting used to after honing my tig skills this past year.
