:rolling: :rolling: This is awesome!! Great looking machine too! A while back before my wife and I were married, My wife and I lived in an apartment with no garage. I bought my nephew a kdx50 dirtbike. It needed some tinkering, so I carried it up stairs into the apartment. I bought a cheap throw rug and began working on the little bike in the living room while she was still at work. Well she came home that night, and she seemed like she was "ok" with it.  Well one night my buddies and I were watching a hockey game and we were out of beers. Sooooo I decided to take the dirtbike from my recliner to the fridge(@20ft). That next morning I took the walk of shame back down the stairs with the little dirtbike and placed it in storage at my dads house. :wallbanging:

Looks right at home there Zippy.

I like my home cooked meals too much to try that at our house.

I think you might be onto something here, the 3rd pic with the nice Buck in the foreground of that beautiful tractor just screams MAN-CAVE!!!

Anyone else feeling that vibe? I see possibilities here, like a plexiglass case around the Cub with lights, then a bar built around that, or you fill in the blank!!!!!

THANK YOU for sharing;)

You must have a pretty laid bike wife.  Mine would shoot me.


When I was working out of town and staying in an apartment for a year through the week with no yard, no garage, nothing but 3 little rooms.  I took some Kohlers, and some tecumsehs down and made a make shift work bench out of a kitchen table I picked up.  I read them all, even put the parts in the dish washer with purple power to clean them.  No one complained till I tried putting a fan in the window and spray painting inside..

(Me) You wouldn't understand, it's a garden tractor guy thing! :beerchug:
