    Thank you both, I didn't really want to spend the money on it but I couldn't not at that price. It's bigger than the harbor freight ones too. I was impressed how small the harbor freight ones are. Walked right by them twice in the store looking for them because I expected them to be taller!

    Your comments make me feel better about spending the money on this one. It'll sure be better than waiting until he's home and driving 45 minutes to my buddy's place to use his!

    haha, i have a press i got from a local place that went out of business that was Cremos, i believe they were a step above HF but not by a whole lot. basically my press is red instead of the usual orange from HF. when i start pushing the press pretty good some of the frame flex starts to scare me. that is a lot of pent up energy being held back by those chinesium welds!!!

    Just a few pics from my Colorado camping trip last June. Did I mention ATVs?

    That red truck thing would be a whole lot better without that stupid huge stack. I get what they were going for but a couple smaller stacks and a different tire/wheel setup and I'd be all over that.

    I can see your view I find rat rods interesting and intriguing I want to build one myself slowly as something I can enjoy whenever I retire

    I'm not typically a fan of the rat rod style myself. I can appreciate the time and effort that goes into them but they're typically not "my style". That being said, I would consider building one at some point. Heaven knows I've got enough parts lying around to build one lol. That one is pretty close to my style though. I think if I ever do build one it'll be based on an old truck cab and not a sedan body.

    A few pictures from my short three wheeler ride today. There's a reason the I call it Big Ugly instead of Big Red.

    Thanks. Yes it's a 1985 ATC250ES. Made by Honda. Also called a Big Red. I try to take good pictures, but there's only so much that you can do while dirt road cruising. I didn't get very far off of the road at all. I just wanted to go for a relaxing ride. Here's the front end when I picked it up. Yes it really did have this much dust on it. This was after the 2 1/2 hour drive home too.

    I have a Honda 185 3 wheeler, no rear suspension, just bubble tires. When I was younger I rode that thing hard, only rolled it once!

    I've got a couple of those too. They are 1983 models. That was the only year that 185's had suspension. Just that limited amount of front end travel makes a big difference on how they ride.
