I would say that our overall average speed will be no more than 15-20mph.

Keith that's true for horizontal ground speed, but it's possible some may reach terminal velocity on our way down a 400' mineshaft. So we can use this to calculate speed:

Not a requirement, just a suggestion. It's hard to get injured when eating shit at 25mph. Much easier when doing 40-50mph.

CC explained for the COTW:

I think one quart of beer is about 500cc's.

A piston size no bigger than a Miller beer can would be best. You may actually be able to USE a beer can as a piston.

Just shopping right now...but good point. I though they were 17" but they are indeed 16" Not sure I want to deal with longitudinal crank torque when I'm airborne anyway...

12oz = 355cc

Beercans melt too easy. But will carry spares just in case.

NOOOOOOOO! Don't rape and toss a perfectly good TL125 - those are few and far between these days, seriously. Find a dime-a-dozen bike like an XL250 from that era...I'll buy the TL!
