The bike needs all sorts of work. All of the cables are shot from sitting. I am guessing the brakes need to be replaced entirely, etc.

What's the DIY part of skiing? Waxing a couple times a year? That must take up a ton of your time!

Sharpening and waxing are the basics. Making your own skis is a hobby. A 4 ton press and some old ski molds from a defunked ski company will get you started.

I'm the Imelda Marcos of skis, if I could make my own I'd have to move to a bigger house.

Intrigued. Very much so.

OK, we gotta talk. I ski, but building my own skis is not something that interests me. HOWEVER! I fly rockets. BIG rockets. Tripoli level 3 certified. I've done many methods to make composite components. Carbon fiber, foam, glass, wood all used...Somehow I am thinking that ski making technology could be adapted here. Fin cans? Nosecones? hmmm....

For those who still dont know, this is what a level 3 launch looks like, and yes, this is a very technical and DIY hobby:


This was NOT my rocket, but I used the same PML Ultimate Endeavor design, and upscaled it for my L3 cert. I flew a Hypertek M hybrid motor in it. I used duplicate altimeters and radio controlled backup for deployment. I have tape. Ugg, tape! of my cert. I gotta digitalize it someday for posterity.

This is what a Hypertek M looks like at launch.

I'll give you 50 bucks if you put a little extra gas in the tank of one of those bad Larry's and let us strap Yeager to it.
