DOH!...They won't let me leave!


I came to work this morning and there was an annonimous sun baked Sunjammer outside the door! :roll: :roll: :lol:

Works great!....pretty baked tho.... Probably parts.
#65095
Geeze, no pic of the Sunjammer....I'm slippin' :? :oops: Its already parts :roll:

Anyway....been busy and havent had time to post last weeks finds. (hopefully I'll remember pics this time :oops: )


The "garbage man" Dropped off a Razor E-100......good batteries, good charger! Needs a new end on the charger to make it safe.

Second, I made a parts trade with Hypo21 and got the elusive Injusa "legend" 4X4! She's rough but I've got it going on 18 volts now! (That's another topic)

Then this morning I took a van out for a test drive and, while driving by the local used car dealer, I saw an old blue Bigfoot hangiong out of the dumpster! U-TURN!!!! I went to the office but they didn't open until 9:30...... It was 8:45 :( .......so I helped myself..... :D

Pics later ;) I hope

sounds familiar....i did the same thing last week ;) Dumpster right next to a used car lot that sat along a 4 lane - U-turn into an empty parking lot and a 5 minute conversation with myself rationalizing why "this" was a good idea :o :P ... i won ;)

I had to loosen some overly tight (binding) push nuts and eliminate some high resistance connectors. I added some PW 6V connectors and three 6volt batteries...... needs some TLC...but good enough to ride for now.

...oh yeah...cut off a few jaggedly shattered accessories....for safety reasons.

#66205
Got a text at 5:30 am this morning..........."202 & 2nd in driveway"


Swung by on my way to work and nabbed a silver Beach Ranger. Hood and lights gone :evil: , battery connector gone :evil: , shifter sun baked off! :? ...Yikes!


Tires, lift, and motors/gearboxes look good :D :D .


Pics later...will be parts for who ever wants them.
#66263

You have got to be kidding me....Do you live in some sort of Power wheels bermuda triangle....somehow they all migrate to within a 10 mile radius of your house??
#66480
You have to move somewhere else if you really want to get out!.... you are addict.... you cannot quit with all those temptations around you....
BTW nice scores... that skid steer looks in good shape... probably just need fresh batteries and a good shower to be flipped...

Yup, I will flip the HD loader. The rest are most likely parts. I may try flipping the Mongoose quad.....its pretty tough...... for a knock-off.
#69758
Got a rough start this morning....... :evil: :evil: set the alarm for 4:30.......woke up at 6:45! :o :o :o :evil: :evil:

The garbage trucks had gotten a good amount of streets before I got there. (only one of the 3 is on the take ;) )

Anyway.......Got 5.....all parts. This is the third month now that all the rides (except 2) have had the battery connectors cut out of them....GRRRRRRR.

Pics later....soon to be parted

1) Orange KFX
2) Old style Ninja Quads
1) 12v Bigfoot
1) Dream Dazzler..... :roll: yeah..I know...But it has tail light lenses.....!!!!!!!! The only one in 4 years that had the lenses!

Can't wait to see pics! What is it with the Dream Dazzler? I keep seeing you guys talk about this thing...what is the deal with them?
#69766
It is one of the ugliest, worthless pieces of garbage ever produced......... but I modded one into an awesome ride for my daughter and it actually has lots of potential. Some fail to see that potential so there is always some "ribbing" going on among us "veterans".
#69768
Gotcha...thank you for clearing that up for me...haha
#69923
Pics of yesterday's finds......

Just the front row......the second row is last month's that I have not had time to take apart yet.

Yeah....these are parts units...they wont be around long.

Faded with a bad F/R switch. Looks hardly used....shame. Still kicking this one around......I should part it due to lack of time but these big quads bring a good buck......Hmmmm :roll:
#77326
It is so hard to get out....isn't it....muhahahaha
#77329
I would sell it, I have the same thing that my kids play with and it sits in my backyard. I have been offered $80 for it a few times this summer and mine is faded much worse than yours. I would have sold it if my kids didn't like it so much. People love those big quads.
#77333
I'm thinking of a spray can camo job on the body and put it up for $150.... I'm keeping the trailer for mine, it's chaulky on the back lip anyway.


....but there is an easily sellable $75 in parts right off the top......hmmmmm....My conscience sucks! :roll:
