    Count me in. I'm working on a new project. I now have D-day to get it done by.
    Beach cruiser, HT, Centrifical clutch, jackshift and internal shifter hub.....

    My following project will be putting a "scooter guy" motor on my tandem. Don't think I will get it done by then though...

    Thanks for putting a date on the ride.
    June 14th is the 2nd Sunday of the month.

    I will post more details about El Dorado park and where to meet soon,
    maybe even a map :grin5: It is a great park with lots to do and right off
    a river trail that goes from the sea to way up in Montebello? OK, it is really just a concrete lined channel but don't get near it when it rains......

    I will be bringing my EZ bike, just gotta get it built :grin5:

    Looking to have a huge gathering so you have a months notice now..
    Hoping to see a lot of you guys from San Diego to Santa Barbara

    I am trying to get my mate to finish his 50 cc water cooled 11 HP Morini downhill bike and he will be bringing his classy board track racer.

    Hey Mountain man......not that far to ride that thing. The park is less then 100 miles from you. I'll cover the 2 gallons of gas to get there and home....

    huh? Did I miss something here? a post?

    I already formally invited the Mountain Man to the bike meet and I didn't know that 2 gallons of gas was stopping him from showing. Everyone is
    welcome to come and it will be all about the bikes........

    I will be there with my tools and will be offering help to anyone who
    needs their motored bike sorted out. I am really good at working out
    the bugs and special tweaks......
    Looks like a lot of people will be showing up on June 14th Sunday at
    the park.
    More details soon.

    Just trying to have a little fun and encourage him to come. Also, trying to encourage him to ride to the event on his MB. "ride that thing" was weak attempt at humor while using his famous quote. (pretty sure he will think its funny....)

    See ya there!

    I am going to be giving away at least one of my new 35 teeth CNC
    3 way mount aluminum sprockets as a "door" prize.

    At the end of the day we will do a drawing out of my hat by a
    hot bikini babe to pick the lucky winner.

    Full rules and disclosures too be announced soon....:devilish:

    Still not quite sure on the actual spot in the park but I am going
    there this Sunday to check it out as I usually go during the week
    when it isn't that busy.

    There will be other prizes and give aways.....

    gonna be LOTs of VERY COOL bikes there. :grin5:

    4 bikes would be great, the more the merrier....

    The only problem I could see is if you tried to ride them all at the same time :grin5:

    My motor only has about 3 miles on it but I think it should be fine. I just need to finish the build. I don't have a truck and I'm in Santa Ana, so I will have to figure the transpo out, since it is a bit far from here on an unproven bike. Anyone around me with a truck that would consider carpooling?

    Sounds like fun. Im in Irwindale and the Sangabriel river trail starts their. I have never taken the trail but im wondering if all the gates are open or are thereslot openings to get the bikes through. When i was a kid it took the trail down to seal beach but I remember we had to hop some of the gates to follow the trail all the way down. I hope i can have my push trailer done by then. That would be a nice ride.
