Damn that rascal's light.

The big lump of weight is the motor. Weight savings wasn't in it's design parameters and I wonder what could be built using something like an air cooled two-stroke 70-100cc playbike motor which would not only be lighter but just about double the power output.
Motor weight is down below COG, so it helps as much as it hurts. Doubling the cc's usually doesn't go anywhere near double the weight, and in most of cases, increasing the cc's weighs about the same. So I say go for it! Sounds like a fun project.

Now that our minds are already stimulated, how 'bout a picy?

After watching kids ride KTM/Cobra 50's and the incredible power they put out it make me wonder what sort of U. A. B. could be built using one of those motors. With the right gearing they'd haul around a full-size adult in fine style. Without a transmission they'd be really limited on what kind of road speed they could develop, though.
Forget the Cobra KTM engines. Them freakin things are pure bread high compression lightweight racing engines. Incredibly loud and temperamental. They're both liquid cooled and will over heat without air moving across the refridgerators. Stupid fast when they hit the power. Very sensitive, high maintenance, lightweight little clutches that a 6 year old can break if he abuses it too much.
You need a drivetrain out of a trials bike. Mega power, reliable, quiet.
Or just put a seat and a gun rack on a trials bike and your done.

I'm glad I didn't pay anything to get in. Defiantly wasn't worth $15 in my opinion. There was some neat stuff and the dealer expo has some cool new stuff out too though.

The IMS show was nothing but OEM's to speak of. In one sense thats cool for me because I don't get to be around all of the new shiny bikes all the time like other dealers. On the other hand I would be pretty bummed if I was someone that payed to get in because all it would take is a trip to a couple of dealers to see the same thing. If you were one of the people that waited until 1 on Sunday to get into Dealer Expo and the IMS I would say you got your moneys worth. That isn't to say the Dealer Expo is anything to write home about though but it just gave people a whole lot more to look at.

Get a 100 Amp buzzbox and a MAPP gas torch to anneal the welds. I rebuilt a Willys Jeep with just that, including a lot of frame repairs. No cracks. An angle grinder is great for shaping bracketry and getting some really cool scars. You can probably land all you need for about $200.

Back in the day, everyone used arc on those frames... it works. You can get a cheap gasless mig if you're worried about it, they weld OK, but the spatter is really bad and sucks to grind off. I got one on sale to play with and after quite a few welds, I got stacks of dimes out of it. I wouldn't waste the money on a good one, unless it has the gas option. I'd get a good gas torch, but I don't want to mess with bottle rental. Too much $$$ for occasional home use. I got one of those small deals that works off disposable bottles and it paid for itself on one exhaust repair on my Jeep GK. Cost $10 in 02 to save a $100 head pipe plus labor to pull the damned thing out. I was afraid to electric weld in place because of the CPU. I know people do it, but I chickened out and brazed it.

I'll be doing some frame work as soon as it warms up, and not sure which I'll use, but they have all been commonly used at one time or another.
