Today's ride was a blast! We rode for 4 hours up on some gorgeous trails. Lots of steep downhill decents, Log Crossings and plenty of steep hill climbing. This ride really beat me up pretty good so I'll post a few today.
Dean's Bike and Mr. Ames side gate!


Also, we ran into some guy that had a lawnmower motor on a cruiser frame. He also had a motoredbike.com sticker on his tank. We stop to say hello and I think we freaked him out a little. He jumped into his car and put a towel over his driver side window!

Some of the trails. There was noway a under belly pipe would have survived. I must have hit the bottom tube at least a dozen times going over logs.

Those are Goped/scooter style tanks. We mounted them like you would mount a number plate on a motoX. They hold up good and haven't fallen off once. It's nice because the tank isn't in the way.

WOW those are some great looking bikes did you build yourself or buy them, how fast do those go, do those franco morini engine really rev to 12000 rpm? and is it possible to build something like that for around 1000 bucks?

I got mine to rev over 14+K rpms. You can build one under a grand if you have your own bike. Call Dean up at Pipelyne and he can give you a quote on a set-up. (408) 279-2307

Those bikes are sweet! I live in San Jose and have been mt. biking at the demo forest but I didn't think you could go motorized mt. biking. I would love to join you but I think my motorized cruiser is very inadequate and I'm a newbie.
