    Very cool! Is that headlamp really going to run on kerosene?

    the headlight was carbide (acetylene)... I didn't get the guts with it no chance of that. it will be electric..... hmmmmmmm arc light?

    I keep seeing other stuff it needs... like all the controls should be push/pull rods. brass rods... counter weights... springs....

    noooooo, stop me before I mod again.

    I always thought it would be cool to have a wind-up or handcrank dynamo to get a capacitor charged, or just make juice while spinning to energise the coils ( or starter...). Or an old-style handcrank start like the old cars, rather than a kicker. Hard to do on a CX...being linearly impeded by the front wheel.

    Very cool. The whole "steam-punk" technology thing is really interesting. Do you plan a S-P, AGATT as well?

    That is by far the coolest looking exhaust I've ever seen even though it's on the huge side!
