I think it's a great idea. I would do it.
(What?!! The Harley boy is thinking "scooter.")
You bet, in fact I'm thinking of it for myself.
I'm thinking installing a rack (on something) and actually going to see clients on a vehicle that doesn't gulp gasoline.
There are some larger scooters, capable of doing highway speeds, where the entire seat lifts up for storage. My sharpening tools could be stored there out of the weather. I only do the eastern part of my home county and by UPS delivery.
Failing that, I was thinking of making the bike a Harley Sporyster. Now, I realize that to many of you a Sportster is a heavy bike. Trust me, I rode one last week. To me, it's a scooter.
Win, lose or draw, with gas prices rising, we should think about this.
