Finally I am going to get my clutch ordered at the end of the week. I can't wait; I missed my BoXer.

Looking forward to doing this again...

Have not been on the BoXer since October, and I am getting itchy to be on it again.

I'd like to take the BoXer and my HardRock and just have a little fun out on the playa (Dry Lake). Been thinking about trying it out at the dunes but I would have to have some sprockets made up for me.

I've been doing so many trails and MX tracks that some big wide open dry lake seems like it will be fun.

Today I rode the BoXer to the bank, then I went to Ace. Stopped by my buddy's home but he was not there. Went to the small BMX track the kids have in the desert behind the grocery store then back home.

Fun,fun,fun

I wish there was a place I could ride mine here without pissing off everyone.

I get crazy looks Ken but I cannot tell if they don't like it or just curious on what I am riding. I always stay close to home on the BoXer.

That's why I usually just keep the dirt tires on it and load it up on the truck and hit the deserts.

I've got a front flat now that needs to be fixed.

Yeah its a shame Dave, the suspension on the BoXer makes it a pleasure to ride.

Yeah... those bikes are a lot cooler than the motoped to me... something like this needs to 2 stroke for the power and the nice sound they make too.

I'm just wondering if someone would send me the dimensions so I could build one at my shop... hint hint...
I got all the mild steel and chrome moly tubing and lots of tooling like plasma cutter, TIG welder, cold saw, tubing bender and notcher etc so a set of plans would be worth paying for to me. Just need to use a DeNardis or KTM engine since Morini is no more, unless I can find a used one that runs or is in rebuildable condition.

LOL! I am not sure how Dean would feel about that. Trust me you are not the first to hint that to me.

True... in the wrong hands a set of plans could lead to a bunch of low quality copycats being sold or even worse, someone could send the info to China and then there would be tons of these frames built sub par.
I'd much rather deal directly with Dean on something like that anyway because we could write up some kind of a contract or binding that I would only build one for myself and could not share or sell the plans or dimensions etc...

Angry Re: Dave31 BoXer

Needed a new headlight for my truck and some brake fluid to top off my clutch reservoir.

Parts store is only like a mile from home so I figured I'd ride the BoXer. Locked it up to the bike rack that is on the side of the parts store and went in.

Got my headlight and brake fluid, checked out the table they had up front with all the stuff that was on clearance looking for something I just had to have but found nothing I wanted.

Paid for my purchase and came out to find my seat and seat tube gone! I don't think I was even in the store for 10 minutes.

I am not a happy guy today
