Nice build!

Can I ask you, how heavy was the bus once empty?

I'd have to go find my scale slip to be sure but IIRC it was in the 9300# range.

BUSY freaking weekend. I'm calling it DONE for now. No time left, heading for CA on Friday. Everything is buttoned up, bikes and gear and food and beer are loaded. Its stuffed to the gills.

Dad built some nice stuff to put the finishing touches on....

helmet hooks.




A box to protect all the coolant/ac/water lines and the rear heater, with some extra bonus storage.



Picked up this BBQ awhile back. we've been using it camping for a few years. It came off a some sort of boat and KICKS ass. So much heat, doesn't care about wind, just cooks like a good grill should

Not racing. Just spectating and helping out with tech inspection. Doing a little riding.

Come on by I'll buy the first round! Hope to be camped out somewhere near gate 4.

Sweet looking bus you have their. Looking to do the exact same thing but only finding 5 windows. Would you say there is space above the handlebars on the drivers side of the bus for a bunk? Thinking about putting one their when I pick up a bus if space allows.
