    That is superb, lucky little guy!

    Excellent - and the steering wheel could be used as a road wheel if he gets a blowout.

    Thanks gents. It was a fun, albeit frustrating project.

    Plus, it only has like one-third of a horsepower. But it looks great. Who cares if it’s all show and no go? It worked for the Plymouth Prowler!

    I came across this looking for something else entirely. I seem to be more receptive to electric motorcycles than cars. I still don't see the current 200 mile standard or even 300 being enough for me to consider an electric car a real car. Now if I could recharge it in 15 minutes then I could live with 200-300 miles of range(not 2-4 hour charge times). On a bike about 100-130 range is normal. I really don't understand the weigh comment since it seems to be nearly identical to most current liter bikes (Yamaha z1 is 487 lbs wet weight). I just don't know about 140/lbs of torque instantaneously on a bike.

    If this opens up to an opportunity I might be able to snag a z06 at a decent price to replace the F-Type. The vet coupe is far more usable day to day than the Jaguar.

    Here is one in nearly the same color pallet as the F-type. I think I may still prefer the yellow or white.
