Alex...I'm serious...this will be something WAY different...(and I may not find the time or cash) ...but enter me...

(I need the motivation! )

EDIT: BTW: Make no mistake...there will be PLENTY of BS, sarcasm, and plain goofiness along the way...but at rhe end of the day...it should be pretty cool...and a good teaching tool.

PAFR bro!
[edit] I found this helpful info from a recent thread at the Forum:
"oversized inner tubes by 2 inches for extra "ride" cushion and less chance of leakage from the inner tubes due to stretching." TX, FR15
Give that man a cigar!!!! (That's why the air compressor is there! ) And YES!! The HF wheel is going on the back ...but not like it is...the front will be a bicycle wheel.

It sounds silly now...but..I'm not trying to put a stupid amount of HP on an "out of the box" deathtrap! This is a 3 1/2 hp Tecumseh...geared very conservatively...and each component will be examined and discussed through the upgrades.

Just waitin on a mod now....

True...but ambulance fee is like $100...hospital bills aren't cheap...and my oven would cost a couple of hundred to replace...

Ummmm...I'll stick to working up slowly!
