Help!
R30FS Version III

I am feeling better after hernia surgery relapse, financial crunches and now the Colorado floods. Working longer hours making parts is getting easier for me so I have gotten back to it as best I can.
I am stuck down in a hole and it's hours to town this winter. I have to get into a better 4WD so I will be posting a kit on eBay later this week to help pay for it. It will be with a new motor and most parts with a unpainted body.
I finally feel I have the bugs out now that I had more time running it, check it out on my U-tube channel.

Thanks, I still can't do a lot of hours and I have been running a big lathe/mill job and it hurts this old man a bit.
I found a truck and it delayed my progress on the kit for ebay. I just need a couple of bits off my runner and get it bolted together.
I will post here well in advance.

Yes Jimmy I have a new bike design in the works, keeping me awake at night. Pray that it works

Nice avatar BTW... Is that another version?

Version IV, R30 FS Streamliner, I brought back the Two Speed and it doesn't have forks. Mostly carbon and nylon parts. I should be able to do a electric version but need to test the patent pending front end first. It's kind of a long shot but I have to try it.
I have to work on getting this short run of Version III out of the way now. I have been sitting on all these parts for too long.

Cool, not that I can see much. But it hints at the Elf double link frontend.
Looking forward to seeing you design. Good luck with the patent.

I found out I can't get any thing plated for at least two weeks so I am looking for fork tubes from Patric. I have everything else, I just need to assemble it and get some photo's.

Good to hear, so to make this clear, you are going to list on e-bay to the highest bidder to give everyone a fair chance to own?

Yes, It is the only fair thing to do at this point I think. If the winner races it at the worlds I will give support and replace all the scratched bits

I had to order and make a few things to get everything like new, it is amazing how much time it takes to get one of these together. it is coming along nicely now, I should have the body cut out and on it in a few days.

It will come with the red Aleven wheels shown here on Lazlos bike. This will be version III #0002. I may never sell another

You should try and sell your motorcycle plans to a big company.

Maybe some day I can come up with something for the masses, I don't think this is it. I will keep working on it.

I just crawled back to the shop after getting very sick for a few weeks. Yikes!
I got the motor installed and am working on the new brake parts.
