    Hello, I'm from north west Missouri and bought #218 about 9 years ago, and in the last few years picked up a 91 and a 90 last week . Here's my 87 "hillbilly snowmobile " as the guys I work with call it.

    Welcome,



    Look'in like the 87 need'in some TLC.



    Gotta love the John Deere tractor tire look though!



    Hillybilly snowmobile...I'll have to remember that one.



    Anyway, welcome to the forum.

    #218 as in serial number?



    I have #168 and #1050. I wonder who has the "firstest" amoung us.



    Welcome aboard.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    No idea about low serial numbered bikes. It would be cool to see where it was sold at.

    That tractor tire was a close out special at a local farm store. $14 If I remember right. It layed around for a month out front of the store till I picked it up.

    Denman makes some just like it I saw on eBay . With hex head sheetmetal screws in the lugs it goes great in the snow . Side hills are tough but it goes.

    Seriously cool V-tread.. what size is the tire, and how much heavier do you think it is than a regular TW34 or so?

    I think it said 6.00 by 14 . I'll check in the morning after I get off work . As far as the weight goes it's not that heavy.

    It was a bit stiff putting it on the rim in my driveway in 100 degree if I remember right. The ride isn't as bad as you would think either .

    The place on eBay that sells the denman brand is out of marshall Missouri if I remember right. The one I have clears the front of the swingarm by more than a inch or 1"1/4

    Hmmm? My brother's Yanmar garden tractor has 6-14 bias tube type rear tires. I recall seeing the size and thinking they would be fun on a TW. Any Yanmar dealer ought to be able to provide tires.

    Denman went belly-up. Another outfit bought their molds in April. Could be awhile before they see production again.



    Aggie areas should have plenty of leftovers.
