Build Thread:
Current Mods: Replaced wide OEM rear wheels with narrow front wheels; replaced wide tires with 155/60R15 ContiPro high-mileage tires - all at 42 psi. Installed an UltraGauge which has every gauge except the kitchen sink gauge. No, I take that back. There's the kitchen sink gauge... I use a handheld anemometer to determine the optimum mpg speed. I have mounted a flowerpot bird with springloaded wings on the front cowling to indicate turbulence, wind speed, wind direction and drafting sweet spot. Drive barefoot for throtle control. Plan my long trips for tailwinds.

Planned Mods: Air dam, rear fender skirts, supercap electric engine assist, full body skirt, solar roof, renewable hydrogen injection.
