  • Wtb geo bigfoot frame

    Hello everyone its my second post first one is for a Gsr frame, no replies. But theres one member who wished me luck ( thanks men ). Maybe some of you are saying does " he know? " Why yes, I read a forum about bigfoot spindle to chain conversion. Well I thought I get a crack at it and put 20+ yrs of machine shop supervisor experience to good use and besides its a Geo not a bigfoot. A new motor ( not the original spindle type ) plus a well fabricated engine mount its more than possible. If anyone has a Geo sitting in their garage collecting dust just let me know. A complete ped is ok as long as its reasonably priced, A ped without motor would be better I dont need the motor anyway. Or just the frame and fork would do just fine. Shipped to the Phillippines on my account. Thanks

    Good luck dude! I’ll keep an eye out. I do see them come up from time to time, but prices have gone way up recently.

      Thanks, gsr frames are hard to come by now new or used and the geo bigfoot is kryptonite to others so I thought someone might want to let them go. I imagine building a poor mans gsr40. Lol ! !

        There used to be a guy on here who made a weld-on motormount for the gbf frames to convert to a gsr40 style mounting. I feel like a uni-frame mount would be easier tho. I guess then you’d have to factor in the price of the 78mm mount.

        I’ve noticed many gbf’s selling for similar pricing as the bf’s. Only thing I can figure it’s that people buying them don’t actually understand the difference, just see a clean air tie Goped and compare the price to others on the market.

          Yes, at first I didnt know the difference between a gbf and a bf. A guy here in the Philippines modified a bf to a y frame, I thought I could do the same but later on I changed my mind. It would be a bad idea to mount the motor on the welded side of a yframe. Plus it devaluates the value of the original frame. I could not have agreed with you more about the uni frame. I just took a chance on a gbf since this model have motor issues etc than others and get a better chance of getting a better deal ( cheaper I suppose ). So instead of waiting for an available one, I already got on with my project and had purchase billet rims, sprockets, bothy fork etc. Oh yes by the way I read it somewhere that the gbf, bff are 4" shorter than the gsr or uni frame. Do you have any idea? Thanks for your time.
