Dirt Rider

Why do you think you will win the Charity Challenge?
We won't, but we'll have fun.
How did you get your vehicle?
We found one locally and drove down to pick it up.
What will your vehicle be able to do that no one else's will?
Race in a residential back yard.
What kind of person would you want (or NOT want) to bid for and win your vehicle?
We would want a backyard/adult minicycle racer or a serious rider who is vertically challenged.
What's the plan?
We will sell or trade the engine and have the frame completely reconstructed in a jig to take an entirely different class of engine. The new engine will be heavier, bigger and slower, but amazingly will make the bike more fun to ride!
What are the major milestones or phases of your build?
Buy the donor bike, buy the engine-donor bike, have the chassis modified, sell off the extra parts, trick out the new hybrid bike, and handle the paperwork to make it legal.
