Sadly Selling Massive Home-Made Track

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I was active on here a fair few years back as I undertook a huge project building a 1900x3600 three lane track. I was making this for myself and my son and it was a huge labor of love that I had anticipated to keep forever for us to use. Sadly a year or so after building it my wife and I separated and we had to sell our house (and loose the 4 car garage I had build the track in!). Since then I have held onto the track in my new house in the garage, hoping to one day to return to it to finish the project. Alas the time has come where I am renovating my garage and cannot store the track at all anymore, and I am gutted to have to let it go. I have spent thousands building it so far, and hundreds of hours, but rather than cut it up into firewood, I thought I'd jump on here and offer it to anyone who might be interested in giving it some love and bringing it back to life. The tape in the track recesses has come out due to condensation in the garage, however everything else is still totally fine, the paint job i had done on the track is still as it was when I first did it, the huge bank curve is still perfect and it will simply need some legs and modelling to finish it up.

 

It is VERY big, and if someone were interested you'd need a few strong people and a truck to move it, but even if I can get $300 for this I would be happy to see it go to a home rather than the tip...

 

The project was documented here:

Feel free to ask any questions, it is available for pickup in Kallista, VIC. I would need it gone within 2 weeks or its getting chopped up and I'll be devastated!

 

Cheers,

What sort of braid is it?

 

Its that braid that has the double sided tape on it, so it laid in well bit I probably did a little too much tension and it started coming off... If it was glued in it would be fine..

 

Also here is a video of the track when i first ran it.

Magnetic braid or normal braid?

 

Track looks good in that video - would have been a lot of fun.

Magnetic from memory, I think i did that so the kids would have an easier time!! It was... And hopefully it will be for someone else!

My double sided taped braid lifted too and a little 'Ados' soon fixed that.

 

great track - GLWS


They are only toys .... until you pull the trigger.

May be an idea to list where it is located.

Certainly a bargain for some one looking for a track.

 

Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne

I would suggest that you pm hazefullstop directly as this was posted in February and the last time he was online on the forum was in March.

I don't think it is still available as my brother got all the braid off it months ago.
