The Tool Section is good, there are a lot of post in each of those threads....its specific yet not to specific....

I agree with the Fab section....there should be Offroad Fab, Hotrod Fab, and General Fab

If more users with Desert trucks, Sandrails etc come over because of Dirtsports the Offroad Fab might need to be split up later.....

That all looks good to me Keith! I don't see anything that I would change. Like you said, forums could always be split later if the need arises.

The reorg looks good. That's one of the toughest things I've found - not having too many or too few forums. Looks like a good balance.

Hello there Keith,
Real quick: I'm new here, some how found the site search threw for Reverse Trike and/or frame plans, etc., Anyhow, I have read but have scanned threw much of this site. Along with asking for advice for kind of tube for a reverse trike.(rt) Well, as you may have seen, I have got some great help! ...and with the replays and replies from areas of this site, I have to say again:

Good people here!

It's nice to see guys here with quality skills both verbally & physically that would blow away, well some shows on TV these days. But, these guys here have no problem helping someone from a "newbie" to a "weekend warrior" with kindness!

Anyhow, I'm a member of a couple of yahoo groups on rt's. I was just going to post or invite guys from there to check out this site. It's very hard at a yahoo group, if you never seen, to read threw. It's not a forum setup like I'm used to.(like here) so, topics are not organized.(blah,blah)

It would be nice to see a Reverse Trike section here. Maybe something you may want to try? I have been researching rt's for a few months now, and I think it's lacking a forum site set up like here. Also, I have seen more and more getting involved in building a rt over the last few months.

Like I said, just reading threw this site, nice chemistry here!
Kyle
