Super Sketchy Brah.

Seeing as Cristophe put up some sketches of far off projects (maybe his isn't very far off) I guess its ok for me to show you what i've been doodling when i should be doing my homework.

Maybe recent posts on the forum will tip someone off as to what this is... I've been thinking a lot lately about finally building a top tank. MB5 or maybe CBR125 forks, swingarm (monoshock) wheels and a motor to make it worth it. Something I could practically and reliably ride on the highway or race on some of the local underground TT races. I love the idea of using scooter parts, especially variators so i can fix the engine. I definitely get off on the engineering and pioneering aspect of this kind of thing, and it would be a blast to build my own engine, do some finite element analysis (a class which i am taking and loving the crap out of right now) and have a crankcase CNC machined from billet. Send out for some heat treating... the works.

Who knows if anything will ever come of it, but it never hurts to dream. Maybe Project 'MOPED FACTORY PHASE 2: Return of the Profits' will net a little extra walking around money while leaving me with some spare time. Ha yeah right.
