Trail building, that chainsaw looks more like your going logging.
There is no way I could get that bike through the trails here, that shovel and rake would be getting caught up in the low branches.

I was so busy goggling over the paint and the star I looked right past the tree anchor system. Be careful with that.

Impressive. What sort of trails do you build, or maintain? Around here those long handled tools would have to travel horizontally and longitudinally unless I first cleared overhead.

Thanks. I use it to help maintain a mountain biking trail system. There are a few places that I have to be strategic with the limb catcher. The system as been fairly cleared out so it's not terrible.

I have stubbornly held on to my bike's stock tank/looks but you have just changed my mind. Looks great!

Don't normally have the rack mounted for trail work. Usually just riding in with a chainsaw and a few other small tools to clear downed trees.

This past weekend while we were out exploring the tree's and rock's I was thinking how much the TW reminded me of a Jeep. TW = 2 wheel Jeep!

Your's looks the part!:icon_thumright:

Looks really good.
I was wondering how long you have had the tank painted? I've found the Clarke aftermarket plastic tanks don't hold onto the paint very well.
Have you done something to help the paint adhere and stay stuck better? Thanks,

Looks good, but I'd be worried with all that weight on the wimpy TW sub frame.

Your not the only one. The Jeep Willys was the inspiration. Neither are flashy, but they both can work their way through some pretty tough terrain. I've taken my TW though some stuff that I had to but my big 650 4 wheeler in 4 wheel drive and keep the gas poured to it to get through.

I repainted the while bike when I got the tank back in January. I used Plastidip, and layered it until pretty good. Plastidip holds up pretty well. A couple of guys I ride with dipped theirs as well and it's been going on 2 years with occasional touch ups. Overall the stuff is pretty durable.
