I thought it'd be a neat idea to have a thread dedicated to the members toys outside of their trucks to see what everyone is into.

Motorcycles, quads, dirt bikes, boats, etc. Whatever you are into for fun, or have any cool projects your working on with your toys, post them up.

I'll see myself out.. ;)
No, let's see em! I am an ultra collector. I have hotwheels and all sorts of other collections. As a matter of fact my sister and I goto a lot of sales...so we started an etsy store, because we can't keep it all. Our store is called Northwest Vintage. NOWVI at etsy.


My problem is, I like to keep everything..

I guess my bike is my main “toy”. A toy that is being enjoyed on the road and not just polishing it in the garage. :cool:

Don’t know if any of the rest are considered toys, but I also have some firearms, hell of a lot of tools/tool storage (including some vintage stuff) as well as a bunch of toy cars.

Plus what ever car or truck I have on its way to be flipped. Been a bit quiet on that front for a few months since the prices have been, say…, riduculous. Once the market cools down, I’ll be back again.

Put a new (buddy gave it to me with the sled) exhaust on last night. Also started to polish the tunnel. Looking pretty good so far. Still has a little ways to go yet though. I'll grab a video and post it up of the exhaust. Makes it sound like a 2 stroke should.

Then there is the 07 Vstar 1100 classic I just finished bobbing. Probably sell it in the spring and buy something else.

Does this count?

12v kids ride in jeep


Old battery


new battery, I have some 2 pin connectors on the way so I can get ride of those exposed quick connects though.


He smiled from ear to ear when it took off. Easily twice as fast as the original battery.

I would like to do some pneumatic wheels as well, and maybe add two wheel motors up front and a switch for 4x4 when he's a bit older. It will be a fun ongoing thing for me and my son to do I think.

Nice haha. I did something similar to my brother's little electric tractor when he was little. I got some rubber tires and made new axles for it so they would fit. I kept it 12 volt though since it was actually decently quick for what it was. He drove it in the snow and everything lol. But the rubber tires made him flip it over a couple times. He liked to get going down the driveway and power slide it into the garage. The plastic wheels would slide, but the rubber ones grabbed too much haha.
