    Here is a Radio Shack Ricky C. dirt bike I converted into a three wheeler. It's powered by a Mamba Max 7700kv motor and runs on a two cell lipo.

    That is awsome. How strong are those axles, and what mill are you using.

    Thanks sig. Not sure how strong the axle is but this one is 6mm, and should hold up fine but testing will tell for sure. I now have 2 milling machines the one I used for most of this project is from Harbor Freight, here's a link: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Displayitem.taf?itemnumber=33686

    so your milling manualy not with cnc. Much respect for you man. I hope I can get there some day. I have heard bad things about harbor freight mills, but only from hardcore milling guys. Is it a good setup for the beginner.

    I recently purchased a cnc mill and am slowly learning how to program and run it. I used the cnc mill for the rear wheels and wheel hubs.

    The Harbor Freight mill does a great job and for the price they can't be beat. I only cut aluminum with it though but it was well worth the money.
    OMG Your avatars just keep getting bigger :nono:

    I never had any cnc experience until I got my own, and I learn something new everytime I use it. I still have a LOT to learn but I'm enjoying it. I've been a machinist for 18 years but only ran manual machines at my jobs.

    I will warn you it's not easy to learn without machining or computer experience. But your good with computers so that will help some.
