    I use to ride with the guy(back in 2000) that designed those Baxley's. Chip was so smart he was a bit strange. Cool as hell guy though.

    Not sure how much garage space you have available but I had a Craftsman chest I started out with years back that I think was 26"? I outgrew that so fast it made my head spin. If you can swing it just go right to 42" and be done with it.

    That's not unusual!

    Those Baxley's are brilliant, and they stay put without additional anchoring, which is especially cool.

    Congrats on the sale. $2,500 by itself wouldn't have been that bad. What is the make and model of the mountain bike?

    Neither did I, but now I want one. Lol

    I'll probably just upgrade to an aluminum cargo trailer, though.

    I remember right after Chip built the first ones. They were around a grand back in 2000 :rofl: The 3 bike was incredible. They were super simple. No rock guard, no floor....just rails.

    Space is limited, I have a spot for the 27" planned out. The other thing is I'm renting still, and hopefully in a year and a half or so moving again. Figure it's easier to move a 27" than a 42. I still have a 5 drawer mechanics cart, too, so the 27" is more overflow than my only storage for now.

    It was a 1981 cb750c. I told my wife I actually would have felt guilty selling it for too much more than that (originally listed for 4500). The more I spent time on wiping it down, cleaning it up, etc the last week or two the more I realized how shoddily I had put it together over the last ten years. Electrical tape holding the tail light wires to the frame, zip ties holding up half the battery box, chipped paint on the tank, a fork that leaked (although hopefully that was fixed..), yadda yadda. I think both of us got a fairly good deal.

    mountain bike is a $250-300 schwinn aluminum frame something or another, pretty sure from walmart. Honestly just got it to hang onto it for a few years until the kid starts riding a bike haha. I don't plan on taking it to an actual mountain at any point so it'll do me just fine.

    Edit: yup, from wally world

    Yikes $6K for an R3? You can get nice used 600's for that price. I just sold a 2014 CBR600RR red, white, and blue with only 12K miles in perfect shape for $7500.

    Trust me I get it ,,,,, I have way too many expensive mods. What’s going to happpen is taking the bike back to stock and try selling some mods and see where I end up. I think I could ask around $4900 in stock form and get about $1000 - $1500 for mods.
    So yes I understand the price is high, I understand that going to a 300 was a mistake for me. Just going to try to get the most out of it as I can but yes still loosing money.
