    sb-66 should I do it

    So I am strongly leaning towards selling my beloved car that I have spend a lot of time and money building. The car is a second car and just a hobby.

    I have been riding a lot for the past year (4-6 days a week) on a 08 Ironhorse MKIII and have really enjoyed the bike but I have found that there are limitations on what I can do to the bike in regards to upgrades especially since Ironhorse went under. I have a spare rear triangle and dw link in case of any bad welds.

    What advice would you fellow forumers on if I should go ahead and upgrade or sit on what I have for a while?

    Another reason would be upgrading to 18" from 17"

    Thanks for any advice

    You will be amazed at how efficiently and well planted the bike is during climbs and it's every bit of the bike the 575 is when pointed south. Go for it if you have the scratch. If you hate it you will have no problem unloading it.

    Not before I get mine. Ordered 6 months ago now, I'm going to have fix up my MkIII until January.
    Sent from the future to destroy the past.

    Would you be willing to sell the spare rear triangle? I have a '07 MKIII and just found the right chainstay cracked near the dropout

    Sorry about you situation and sorry but I cannot part with it, I need to have a backup just in case and I doubt I will be able to find another one.

    Don't worry, I know how you feel about the rear triangle. I'll keep searching.

    Have a happy new year!

    Your decision depends on what kind of car it is.
    I'd hit it, but I bruise like a peach.

    put the car behind you. The SB66 will give you plenty of opportunity to tinker, and the joy of riding will be a greater buzz than the car will provide.

    Do it.

    It is a turbo 240sx that is 400bhp, I have 4 cars right now so it makes sense to move on.

    Sell 2 cars, build the bike exactly how you think you want it and don't look back.
