    Powdercoat costs?

    I got an estimate of $350-$400 for coating my frame, subframe, and swingarm, from a recommended local shop. At this point that's a lot more than I'm willing to spend!

    Thanks guys, what are your thoughts on coating the swingarm?

    How much should i expect to pay to get my frame amd swingarm powdercoated? I assume you should have all the bearings out right?
  5. My friend's son will be starting his third racing season next year and they are going to try and get some sponsorships. He is 12, was the points champion in the 65cc class last year, moving to 85cc next season, and is a great kid. After talking to my friends wife today, they were told to write a sponsorship resume. Does anyone have any tips for them? This is a new world for them and I definitely cannot give any advice on this topic. Is a resume standard procedure these days? Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    Wooden jumps?

    Both are equally scary! Not sure what i am going to do and at this point it doesnt matter. We had a ton of rain the last week and winter here in Wi is right around the corner. I will probably have to wait until next year, until then i am going to try and gather as much info i can to see if i can somehow just use dirt. Probably be a waste of my time but i only have one winter hobby so I'll have plenty of time.

    Wooden jumps?

    I think i should build a 20' wall around my property so they can't see what im doing and i can use my land the way i want to. I live on a busy road otherwise I'd just say screw it and use dirt anyway.

    Wooden jumps?

    Not sure yet about what to use, first thought was to use 2x6's and build the crap out of them so they can handle the abuse. Being wet is my concern, be pretty slick.

    Wooden jumps?

    I cannot haul in dirt or move existing dirt on my property, long story, so has anyone ever built wooden jumps? I can build them, no issue there, more curious as to what I could put on them so they had some traction, any ideas?

    boots for big legs

    I also have large calves and wear fly boots, i can get them buckled up with my knee/shin guards tucked in the top, but there isn't much room to spare.
  14. I kind of figured i will end up getting the short end of the stick on this one, thanks for the input!
  15. I've always wanted to have a piece of land to build a small dirtbike track on and last fall that finally happened. I wanted to build a track as soon as i could but we had a very wet spring this year in Wi. When it finally dried up, i just didnt have time. Our field is all floodplain, but with my initial research it didn't sound like it would be an issue. We live on a really busy county hwy and i wanted to things the right way. After taking to the county today i found out that i cannot touch anything, or bring in any fill, even if its just for jumps and burms. I can pay $400 to hold a public hearing about it but it doesn't guarantee anything will change. Beyond disappointing. I dont have an extra $400 laying around right now to gamble with...I know zoning is different everywhere, but has anyone else ever had an issue with this, or any suggestions?
