    You have one hell of a finished product to be proud of there.

    awesome.

    i'd bet with that killer suspension and motor you could be competative with those BBR pit bikes. thats really impressive, from pictures to riding the real thing up steps.

    congrats and i hope things keep going in the right direction!!

    Really awesome, you guys did what so many motorcyclists dream of, me included- make your own bike!!

    Here's a similar thing that Yamaha came out with a couple years ago,

    I'd love to take your bike around town and to some skate parks!

    Oh my gosh I love it!!!

    This morning is my first look at this thread and my jaw is on the ground!!!

    I ride both motocross and mountainbikes, although Ive never pony'd up and spent the HUGE money required for a true downhiller... Ive always wanted too!

    This kinda/sorta reminds me of that electric mountain bike/motocross bike thats available, but on a completely different planet!

    The workmanship looks great, the design looks fantastic! I cant say enough good things about this...

    Any more detail?!

    I had a thought that this project would have been so much easier had you started with a new Yamaha YZ85 and thrown a bunch of carbon and Ti at it... Refigured a few things instead of starting from scratch... but that wouldnt have been in the spirit of the project. It just would have been easier for someone like me lacking that sort of skill!!!!

    Well done!

    A couple million short of a couple million

    If you're having an IPO and the buy in is less than 6 figures, then maybe you can get the capital in short order. If it never sees production your project is a HUGE success and all the previous KUDOs are well deserved. Awesome job, not only on the concept, but where it really matters: putting the team together to realize a dream. It is this talent that will continue to allow your generation to enjoy a great standard of living and being able to compete in a global market-place.
    Service sector, smervis sector; the real demand is for the inginuity and creativity you've demonstrated. You are receiving a standing ovation from all of us, Bravo!

    Speaking of IPO...I know a pretty talented investment banker who has an incredible knack for finding investors and giving you a fat $$$ injection to get things going.

    Excellent piece of work Guys! I notice you claim a total weight of just 57kgs. Is this correct?

    Cheers
