Is the frame so badly rotten or only the body?

If I trimmed down I would keep the ram and beat some better gas mileage out of it.
Have you ever considered any mod to the Ram in order to make it more fuel-efficient?

Current motorcycle fleet
1986 yamaha ty350
1986 Honda reflex
1976 yamaha ty175
1977 suzuki pe250
1972 suzuki gt550
198? Suzuki pw50

Compete in 20+ observed trials a year and a couple harescrambles.
I don't know much about observed trials, but my dad likes those motorcycles. He told me a few times about some trial motorcycles he used to see when he worked in Tabatinga, a small town in the Brazil-Colombia border.

Equine fleet- runs on hay water and sunshine

1993 standardbred
1998 quarter horse.
I was never so interested in horses, but in '98 my maternal grandpa bought one for me and another for a cousin of mine who seemed to be more excited about them. My mother had also forced me to take horsemanships classes when I was 12, and even though it was not that bad at first, later it turned out too boring. Well, I might not be the only Gaucho who doesn't really like horses, but I have always prefered motor vehicles instead. I'd rather get a 125cc dual-purpose motorcycle, or even a 4-wheeled ATV if I could register it to ride on-road too (it's easier in Uruguay than here in Brazil), instead of a horse.
