That brings up something I have hav been thinking about. There are so many talented guys on this forum making custom parts. It would be great if they could be made available to a wider audience. Anyone interested in selling their custom parts, send me an email or PM.

I will ask Pat about his brakes.

Don't forget the TT wheels don't have a recess in to take the insert,so you'll either have to get a groove turned in the rim or cut the protruding moulding off the inside of the insert.

The goal of this site is to help promote and grow the sport of RC motocycles by making for a better and easier purchasing experience. I plan to do this by providing a wide variety of products, keeping acurate stock status, having fast shipping, having low prices, and by being highly communicative with customers. My goal was not to make money but help fix what I see is wrong with other hobby shops. This, I hope, increases the popularity of RC bikes.

More bikes = more racing = more fun for me!

Please let me know what you guys think, both good and bad.

Bruce
Why don't we have that sort of service in AUS.

Regards Brettos.

Hi Bruce,

If I can supply you with parts made in AUS, would you be interested?

I have access to a 3D CNC machine and can use it (more to the point).

I would gladly sit and watch custom parts being made in a factory in AUS than go through the frustration of waiting sometimes weeks for a simple replacement part from outside of AUS.

R/C bikes are not big here in AUS yet and I say that because we seem to follow the US.

Suffice to say, one day it will happen.

I checked out over 20 AUS sites and not one had anything to offer except RTR bikes.

Keep up the dream and never stop!

Regards Brettos.

Brettos, I would love to carry Aussie bike bits. What parts do you have in mind? PM or email me at bruce@2wheelhobbies.com to discuss this in more detail.

Hello Bruce,

Please put: www.skiptonclub.net

Thanks.

Col.

yes... and the fact that the Skipton site has videos every month of the races so that people that have not only never seen the bikes... but to see them actually running/racing is great....
