Vortex Plans

Has anyone bought a set of these plans and would perhaps like to sell 'em on? I'd like to get 'em but I'm not quite sure about forking over $90 for 'em.

Just don't get a tornado or vornado for the intake tube, it has fixed blades. i tried it for a month and saw no increase- a slight decrease. Sorry I don't know anybody who's used the vortex. U mean the TB spacer right?

Hi, A.A. !
From what I've seen & read, this looks like a clever coffin! How small it are! It would hide in traffic very well. At least on a bike you'd be sitting up
(but still vulnerable) where you'd be seen ... to those who bother to look!
Just MHO, of course. -CHEM.

That's what rear view mirrors and 3 foot long pneumatic train horns are for.

Well, I'm bumping this, I haven't heard from Stephen, so I'm still looking for a set of plans.

Hi AA,
I'm a member of the Vortex3wheeler group and it's probably your best bet. Steve has always been rather slow.
If you were to do 1 I'd suggest converting it to all wood/epoxy instead of the foam/FG shaping used as it will cut labor by 50-75%.
