Default toys

What are y'alls toys other than your Bonnie?

Sorry if the pics aren't all that great, I took them yesterday evening, and camera'* cruddy.

I have my ATV, a 1997 Polaris Explorer 300, OnDemand 4x4, Variable Automatic transmission. Original tires with 50% of tread left and virtually no dry-rotting.

This is my 2002 Murray go-cart, 6.5 horse. Front tires have no tread left, clutch is burnt up. Can you tell I hit a tree with it yesterday?

Xmods





Traxxas T-MAXX (1st gen)
out of commission due to trans problem til i get some more money




Kyosho touring truck (spider something gp-1) if i remember right..

i don't know, i bought it off my brother when he got his r/c heli a few years back..

and finally, my favorite of all..




HPI rally RS4 with a novak reactor speed controller (limit-16turns), 17 turn orion rush motor, belt drive 4wd, graphite upgrade chassis, wheels and tires off of a team associated TC3 tourer (which would explain stickers on my truck being associated racing decals) because he alsu used that body on a tc3 when he had that truck, and some other little things

Bikes;

The toy :


2003 Mongoose Rockadile aluminum framed

Bought for $200, had diisc brake mounting brackets on frame, and i liked the design of the frame as well, so i got it, and ended up putting well over $1100 into upgrades.
hayes hmx 1 mechanical disc braking system front and rear, deore lx shifter/brake levers both sides, deore xt rear derailleur, lx front derailleur, numerous other modifications i don/t remember..


The junker: Found in trash, when new, these bikes were well over $400..

1999 Trek 830 single track

Mods: I bought the mongoose for $200, had the trek frame stripped of paint, and all parts, and I took the parts from the mongoose (since i'd upgraded EVERY SINGLE THING) and put them on the trek frame.. voila, new paint, and new parts. . rides like a dream..btw, i completely painted that myself.. rattle can only

Looks a little differen't now.
Primo Pro cassette, blue spokes, purple nipples, hazzard lite rim built my me, primo seat, standard strip 2-pc bars, titanium spindle, and did some weight reduction. Cut the:seat post, seat post bar on the frame on the top, top of the forks, cut all the brake stuff off, cut down the drop outs, cut the axles, and lost the compression bolts for the cranks and top of the fork. Still a tank at 32 lbs. Most of my friends bikes are at 25ish lbs.

2 toys in 1 pic here. I've got my little setup I've had since GT4 came out which is tons of fun - I'm still waiting for a good H-pattern shifter and clutch pedal and I'll be in heaven, but the paddle shifters on the wheel are fun too.
When I'm not running (65 miles a week so that'* the majority of my workout time) I'm on the bike - usually Sunday if I can after my track or cross country meets. It'* a crappy 1980'* roadbike but it'* sort of getting me into the sport. It'* a great form of cross training to my running and eventually I'll get a nice new/slightly used one.
