And to turn this clusterfuck back toward scootering, has anybody put a CB on their scoot? Put in a CB and airhorns, and you can get that Mack truck feeling in a light, easy-to-ride package...

I think the Scion Xb would be a better vehicle for that- a row of chrom airhonrs across the top of the hood would rock. Put onw some faux veritical stacks, and you're really making progress.

You could probably put a tow kit on it- I imagine there's not a lot of torque, but probably enough to pull a scooter.

Meanwhile, on topic, when you're picking up your cables and tubes and a new Corazzo jacket. You can buy your Rollergirl tickets for the next bout in early December. Or you can buy them elsewhere when you go to pick up your yarn.

Sounds like a excellent idea for a new Special Edition Stella.... The Frightliner. Phil, are you listening?

The MinnMax guys use CB's (OK, the radio in helmet gear). The airhorns have already been done also.

What we really need is a diesel scooter! It would take a hell of an upgear kit though.

There was a custom built diesel motorcycle at Dulono's Bike Night a few years ago. Mojo Willy took some photos. Perhaps he can post them. I know little about the mechanics of such a thing but it was causing quite a stir. If it can be done with a motorcycle, I assume it can be done with a scooter.

If this is the same one I've seen, it's diesel powered and hydraulically driven. No idea how good of a motorcycle it is, but a very cool engineering exercise.
