    Those Ridelys look pretty neat. I watched a show about them, and MAN! They sound so badass from the factory! Have a neat, big inch V-Twin like rumble! ALso, IMO they sound neat accelerating with the CVT. They also seem to be adequetly powered, but top out at 85 MPH. Good enough for most. As we done discussed on this page before the engine is actually a utility engine based on the Briggs 24 HP V-Twin but its modified to pump more HP. But its very low RPMs.

    daveinva yea thats neat. Sort of like them new Honda VFR 1200 or whatever you call it with that hi teck tranny, but it has full manual, auto, and a sort of push button type shift like you describe. It seems neat, a little complicated and wild of a bike, but cool.

    CurveLover I agree. Now, while I don't need no backrest like that there one pictured, I would love a smaller one! Seriously! With the pullback style bards of a cruise, it'd add many more comfortable miles! Although that scoot DOES look seriously comfy if you think about it! To funky looking though.

    Klav, wow, I think thats the biggest apes ever!

    Peter Fouché's T-max based project

    An early stage in construction showing Peter Fouché's T-Max based project. Peter describes his seat base as being adjustable for height, plus forward and backwards. The mounting is also removable for engine access. The front end is pure Hossack. BMW's Duo-Lever is quite similar in function.

    Much earlier. A design over-laying projected rider & systems over original TMax stripped bare. Peter plans a streamlined body shell to finish off his project.
