This is my buddies he made out of scrap wood. I thought he was makin one out of metal but I guess not. Doesnt look like it will really get ya off the ground much but what the hell. Ill give er a shot this summer and see how it goes. Thats a 125 next to it to compare the ramp with.

not bad for scrap .. I would think the transition might be something to used too tho ,it will definitely compression the suspension ..perhaps overlaying another peice from end to end / bottom to top ..would make it alot better


heres a starting gate I made from "scrap " for kiddo to practice starts ..

probably, but would it stay there? also be careful, that OSB is going to be slicker than snot when wet

get a sheet of 1/2" ply wood and double layer it the whole length of the transition, then get some cheap paint, roll it on, and throw a few handfulls of sand on it before it dries. thats what i used to do on my miniramp (small half pipe) when i rode bmx.

hope this helps

.....dave nice use of the old swingset. ;)
hey it works!!!
& it helped her get more comfortable & faster for starts,after spending a few evenings using it for practicing here & there ,she was even harder to beat out of the gate......the hoop /gate is from 1 of the tracks we raced at ..so it was free too ! :)
