    New, from Upstate New York

    Hello. While I joined in 2015, I'll actually be spending some time here now that I have started a 3 wheeler project.

    I'm designing and fabricating a custom framed Yamaha Tri-Z. I'll be using the latest gen. YZ250 motor, 2022 CRF250F RSU forks (41mm with 8.5" of travel), BVC YZ250 swingarm, custom triples, and custom front hub. I'll start a build thread shortly.

    I'm 50 years old. I grew up with 3 wheelers, but like most people, sold them regrettably. My first was a ATC 110 and then a 1985 Tecate 3. I currently own a 1985 Odyssey 350, a 1999 Kawasaki Mohave 4 wheeler, and a 2022 YZ250X. I'll be purchasing a used YZ250 for a donor bike.

    Ha! Nice.

    That's like going from a Chevette to a Corvette.
