    Hey there! Long time lurker here. A couple of years ago I put a 49cc kit from thatsdax on a mountain bike, and now I've been inspired to build a board tracker from scratch. I've been working on the BTR for a while now, and am finally about to get around to building the frame.

    Welcome, I'm fairly new myself. I've been building a BTR as well. Getting enough pics I'll start my own thread soon.

    Good luck!

    What engine you going with on the BTR?

    Ah just got around to getting photos ready to share

    Here's the bike I've been scooting around on the past couple of years. Its various breakdowns from cylinder flooding to the chain tensioner bending the wheel all out of whack have taught me a lot.

    As for the BTR project, I'm using Inventor to model up the frame before I start cutting and grinding. I'm designing around using a predator 212 engine, which is about the most power for the lowest cost I can get right now. Future builds will probably use more expensive, better looking engines.

    Anyways, here's the frame model so far.

    Sorry they're links rather than embedded images, I couldn't figure out how to get flickr to embed them.
