We Need This for Norway

For Sale:

Freestyle Motocross Ramp. Ramp was bought off of a semi-pro rider several years ago. The ramp has been in storage since 2003. The ramp is in good condition. It shows rust and the orange paint put on it in 2003 has faded and is peeling a bit. The ramp has a few dents in the tubing that came with it when I bought it and a few from moving it with a large tractor to set it up at the track. The ramp was originally flat black and has several layers of flat black under the orange. The ramp is made of 2 inch and 1 inch square tubing. It has a sheet metal face covered by an open mesh for traction. The ramp folds in half (for storage and travel) and has a third section that was once hinged but now is a seperate piece. The ramp sits on "dolly tires" to assist with moving the ramp around. Once the wheels are removed, it sits on a heavy strong base.

The ramps welds were done by an amature welder however they have held up to many great days of riding without problems. A couple of the welds holding the "open mesh" at the top of the ramp are loose. I recommend that a licensed welder inspect and check the ramp before jumping to be on the safe side as I am not a welder. Parts of the ramp have been grinded and painted however I do not have time to finish and no place to put the ramp right now as I have moved from my backyard track.

"Approximate" Ramp Size is:

Base section 1: 4ft Wide X 3ft Long X 4"High

Middle section 2: 4ft Wide X 120" Long X 40 1/2" High

Top Section 3: 4ft Wide X 106" Long X 101" High

This ramp is HEAVY!

Purchase of this ramp is limited to those 18 years of age or older and must show proof of age upon purchase.

A waiver of liability must be signed by the buyer to release the seller of any claims of injury, death and damage as a result of using this ramp.

This ramp is designed for freestyle motocross to be jumped by experienced riders that use all possible safety precautions.

Freestyle motocross is extremely dangerous and can cause serious damage, injury or death.

The ramp is sold "AS IS" with no warranty expressed or implied.

$1500.00 CASH ONLY.
LOCAL PICK UP ONLY.

He'd have to take the tools out of the ambulance and get it running if we were to put one of those in.

Problem for me would be when I try to roll it and fall off the top.
