    The "Raunch" bike is alive!
    I cleaned the garage and ended up building another bike.
    Testing was completed this weekend in the drainage canal behind work. Good mix of dirt, rocks, grass, a little mud, and short steep inclines to drop in then climb out.
    It ripped! It's a wee bit sketchy when it gets to speed in the softer dirt. With the 56 tooth rear cog it climbs pretty well. Super fun on grass!

    2003 Specialized Rockhopper frame (Krylon rattle can army green + Big Sky Brewing company bottle cap on head badge)
    2002 Fox Forx Vanilla 125 RL
    1999 T.H.E. front fender
    1x10 bicycle drive train
    -12-36 rear cassette/ 26 tooth front
    2007 XTR crank
    Sram Rival (long Cage) rear derailleur
    POS 26"rim brake rear wheel
    Veulta 26" front (aero spoke)
    2009 Avid single digit 5 rear V-brake
    2005 Avid BB5 mech front disk Brake
    Dual pull right hand lever for both front and rear brake Left hand clutch lever
    1993 Blackburn Cargo Rack (for beer and tools)

    Flying Horse 60 cc two stroke motor (china)
    -56 tooth rear sprocket motor drive side Standard carb
    1.5 liter fuel tank
    Right angle side mount intake manifold
    Speed Demon mini bike expansion pipe

    It's a dirt bike I can place in the fork mounts in my truck!

    That's a good looking build.

    If you are looking for potential options for extended ratio rear cassette gearing (as you have a 29'er cassette on a 26" wheel), just forward to 1:30 on the video.
