    Oh, Bill, you've done it now. Sell that dodgy old 'vette and buy the Isetta. I'd pay money to see you driving that.

    No, no, no, it would be a 20s Indian, he's not a HD fan.

    Just thinking outside the square a little, but would a tuk-tuk qualify as a scrapper? And possibly a tiddler too?

    Under a grand, and under 250cc? Job's right. I saw a tuk-tuk on the road in Newcastle recently. I would love to see you ride/drive one from Kalgoorlie!

    Ill ride it Julie can sit in the back. Room for an esky and she can just pass forward a cold one every now and then. Life would be grand!

    Oh - now we are talking & two stroke to boot. Room for the mates when they breakdown & everything.
    I'm trying to remember how many people we crammed into one years ago in Kathmandu, Nepal...
    This is going to get real fun!

    2 stroke? Throw that away and stick a 250/4 cyl 4 stroke with turbo in it. Bill's a big guy and Kalgoorlie's a long way!

    I know where there is a ripper of a Honda 460/4 motor, veteran of many a SAR that would go great in a new project! :lol3
    Calling @Pezz_gs to the batphone.
    This would put a new spin on the 'teams' idea - Bill supplies the Tuk Tuk, Pezz the motor & everyone piles in the back & takes turns to drive depending on who had the last cold one. Seriously what could go wrong?

    You can get a CBR600 engine in a tuk tuk.
