    That's going to be trick... are you going to paint it, or go with the raw aluminum look?

    I'll get a quote wednesday for powdercoat,and another quote for paint.I dont want to rattlecan this one unless the quotes are crazy high.If they are high, I may leave it alu,but put something on it to seal it.Maybe brushed alu?I will also see the sticker people,see what ideas they have.The ktm/dog paw has been on the last two boxes,not sure about this one.There will be stop/turn/tail lights in the rear,so visibility is good there.Not sure about hi-vis striping on the sides.Safe.....but a bit ugly.

    I will do another after this one,there are a few features I passed by this time.
    Aluminum again
    Lots of solid rivets,airplane look
    Slant back (think army hummer)
    Try for extra fuel in a double floor
    Peltier cooler/heater on the slantback (didnt have patience for it this time)
    Mock up to commence soon.

    Walker is a labradoodle.His mom was a small chocolate lab,his dad a tall slim standard poodle.He's an interesting mix of the two.Smart as a whip,can't catch at all and swims like a brick.He took to riding readily,where not all do.His older brother was horrified by the bike,while his very old (15) brother loves it,but its too much for him now.

    20170829_032257.jpg I saw this......gears were turning.Its fiberglass,so cut,reconfigure as a slantback with windshield etc,reassemble easily? Shipping to Canada is costly though.

    I'm in the shipping business, so I might could shed a bit of light on the costs... if it's empty, which I'm assuming it is, any shipping company is going to rape you with density charges. If you can PM me where it's at, the approx dimms and weight, and your location, I can get you a pretty accurate estimate as to what it would cost to ship. If the box itself was cheap enough, it might be worth it.

    I've been meaning to ask if the 'tail access port' was engineered in,or came into play after?All my guys hate having their tails touched haha! Edit: message sent re:shipping,but I don't think its a pm?

    It is called "starting a conversation" now but it is the same as the old PM I believe.

    maxresdefault.jpg Ok this is the one.I think dimensions are a bit tight for my guy,possible to work for a 35-40 lb passenger? Pretty much the layout I'll be going for with the next one,(with windshield etc)probably in aluminum as I've never fiberglassed a thing in my life.

    It was engineered in, if you want to call it that, when I first went PVC, as the plastic crate I started with always seemed to be on the verge of breaking her tail off. I then left a square in the PVC for her tail to hang out, and everyone seemed to love it, especially her... the following is the progression from the bottom of the her former crate zip tied to the DR to the current Charkstream.

    Hated it, but in its defense, the hack was too light for the bike... that, and never got the feeling for having to carry less speed into right handers than left, a point proven with the buyer went careening off into the bushes with me as ballast. I would much rather be able to lean, although you do give up a lot of storage space when you put a dog on the back of a bike as opposed to out to the side...

    Everything is a trade off.
