I know that we are all here for the new Honda Pioneer but we all have other projects or interests that are going on also , so lets see them !!!!!!
ill start . Here is a 1999 Honda Foreman 450ES that i bought for $500 in 3 boxes and the rolling frame .





After 40 hours of work , a pile of nuts and bolts, 1 timing chain ,1 used seat ,and having the cylinder bored and a top end piston kit installed it runs great and will run for many years to come ......oh i forgot to mention it has over 16,245 miles on it ......lol
This is it as it sits in the shop right now all done and ready to go get broken in

The funny thing about this vehicle is that it looks like it is exactly the same forward and backwards. Only thing thats different is where the handle bars are.

The foreman is used mostly for plowing snow and it did a great job last year. Tire is probably overkill for the foreman being 8 ply and they should never wear out in this application.

I haven't had time to do any "cool" projects. About the most exciting thing I have done lately was install a tv in the game room.

Yes I do and it is getting a few things every now and then. When out riding I usually come across sheds and a few racks. I'm just in the "collecting" mode now though. Here's one I found a few years ago while riding and I have a few sitting out by my shop that I found around the "yard".

i think sometimes it's good to go for an overkill, if you can afford it, might as well.

This is a project that I just finished up.

I picked up a Carbon 15 for my wife to start shooting longer range with me more often. (She complained my rifles were too heavy).



I upgraded just about everything, cut more weight where I could, and converted it to OD. Which better matches an Army edition M9 I got her a few years ago for our anniversary.



Nothing says Merry Christmas and I love you like an AR does.

Always a project somewhere and if I don't come up with one, my wife will.
Hoping to get more time working on this over the winter months.
