Do you have any pics of the chassis? And what about that windshield, did you make it or did you use a company resource? This really gets the gears in my head turning!

The canopy looks like something from a Vans sport plane. Awesome work!

Similar to many of my concepts, but smaller.

Thanks allot for the well written Blog. I love Canada & usually vacation in the North Channel each year. I've been thinking of a trip around the lake in Rocket2. if I do, I'll let you take it for a spin.
I've never sailed in the North Channel, but have relatives with a cottage near Point au Baril. Beautiful, beautiful country.

If you ever do take this or your next trike into this neck of the woods, please let me know! I'd love to have a closer look.

Too bad eBay didn't generate any bids. Quite a few other sites picked up the EM blog post: Jalopnik, Treehugger, and a Gas 2.0 version just went popular on Digg about half an hour ago. And you probably got e-mail today from a Popular Mechanics (Science?) reporter who asked me about you.

Sorry about the lack of bids-if wishes were cash that critter would be mine...

Here's hoping the publicity you're beginning to generate gets you some bids when you re-post it. And if not, there's always Craigslist!

Hey, maybe Craig Vetter will buy it. It almost fits his criteria.

HyperRocket, i have been meaning to ask you about something...

You said you used a wideband o2 with datalogging to precisely dial in the jetting of the ninja 250 carbs. Exactly what jetting did you go with, and what air temperature was this at? What was your target AFR?

More potential free advertising coming your way, John...

A researcher for the Discovery Channel just contacted me about the HyperRocket. I provided him with your e-mail address.

Good luck with the new auction.

HyperRocket

I am in the dreaming/planning/collecting materials stage of building something very similar. Can you tell me what you used for the front suspension components, i.e spindles, brakes, etc.?
