Well folks I'm sorry to report that I'm pulling out of the contest for this year, I'm just too busy between work and other things that need to get done to put time into the build at this point...
I think what I'm going to do is work on some of the more time consuming things that need to be sorted out over the winter while keeping the 50% rule in mind, once you all see just how complex some of my "plans" are and the hurdles I'll face I can only hope I'm not faulted for it because trust me when I say I'll still have ALOT of work to do for assembly and fine tuning!
On another note I've sold the mini chopper but acquired a complete, solid, rebuildable 200cc Yamaha 2 stroke/6 speed for the IT200 I picked up and I'm thinking that it will be the new "motorvation" for The Offroadster until the bike is complete (that will take a couple years I'm sure). It will have the power needed to move this thing, I can already tell by feeling the individual parts that it's going to be heavier than I was hoping so the 50cc/4speed wouldn't have handled it anyways! Lol.
Sorry to let you guys down but I'm planning on bringing it back next year nastier than ever!
