Added reply in a thread Poll: Frame blasting & Powder coating cost 10/16/2017 5:17 PM

Just picked mine up today and it was $150 for blasting and PC

I picked the frame up from the powder coater and I think it came out great! He did a really good job of getting the color as close to the original as possible. The lighting in my garage sucks (for now, better lighting, and work area are on the way

^ I agree! Dude is not afraid to lay it over up the face of a jump that's for sure!

Another vote for PS Vue here. I'm watching on a Firebox, but like someone mentioned already, you can watch on a computer or portable device. 7 day free trial. I have the Core package which has FS1, FS2, and NBC SN. No issues since June!

Holeshot!

I can vouch for the Playstation Vue app as well. Been using it since June or so since I cut out DirecTV and just kept Comcast for basic cable (& ISP). PS Vue has a Free Trial period for 5 or 7 days so today sounds like its the perfect day to try ... more »

PA doesn’t require titles but some riding areas by me require them to be registered and insured to ride on the property so refistering without a title becomes and issue. I made some progress on the swing arm. It’s not perfect but I think it’s going to

I went through two cans of paint stripper and about 4 treatments. It was still not enough to get off everything and it didn’t do much actually so I just fired up the drill and the wire wheel and went to work. After many hours, I finally removed everything.

Added reply in a thread first pro you saw at your local track 10/7/2017 3:15 PM

Ty Wallace and Barry Carsten back in the mid 90's at District 6 events. First factory guys were probably Ryan Hughes, Damon Huffman, Tim Ferry and I think Emig at KROC in the 90's. Also saw RC and Stew on minis there as well.

Yeah I had stuff come up around that house that needed my attention (as in money) so this was pushed to the back burner. Plus, when I did have some cash, I picked up an 04 YZ 125 that I could ride and was working on that a little throughout the year. ... more »

The previous owner polished the top rails of the swing arm so I need to get rid of that and strip the rest of the paint. Going to go for the brushed look on it. The original air box cleaned up nicely with some SoftScrub ... more »

I haven't been there since the late 90's, but it was a cool track back then, but reading some of the comments, it seems to have went downhill. My first race was at this track on my brother's 95 YZ125 in 95 or 96. I think Tom Veety of Action Photos actually ... more »
