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.

Thanks guys, I can't wait till the weather warms up so I can try it out. It will be going to the sand pit when we run the Bajas.

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.
